Lakeland youth softball registration extends to March 20

March 06, 2020

The Lakeland Youth Program invites all interested youth ages 8 to 14 to sign up for summer softball. Practices will begin once the snow melts and fields are dry, usually around the end of April to beginning of May. Games being towards the end of May and conclude in early to mid July.

Girls ages 8 to 14 years old with age determined by age as of Jan. 1, 2020. are encouraged to sign up. For safety purposes, players must be 8 by Jan. 1. The board will consider requests for playing up on a case-by-case basis and these may be granted based on advanced skill level and/or due to fellow sibling play/travel restrictions. In addition and based on interest, two 14U Teams (Black and White) are being considered for players at different levels of skill development. The Black Team is for those advanced in their skills and that have been playing multiple years at a competitive level. The Black Team will have fewer games (approx 6), but these may involve greater travel and more competitive play. The White Team will have more games (approx 12) and will be more regional in its focus. If the numbers dictate, a try-out for the Black Team will be held after March 1. 

A glove, face mask, black softball pants (for some), and a great attitude are needed to play. Cleats are recommended for 12U and 14U; optional for 10U. Personal helmets are optional. Equipment provided includes helmets, bats, balls, jerseys, and softball pants for U10 and limited availability for U12. All equipment provided should be returned at the end of the season (including jerseys and pants). 

Cost is $75 per player plus a volunteer (or buy out) commitment. Completed registration forms and payments should be mailed to Lakeland Youth Softball, P.O. Box 238, Presque Isle, WI 54557 or dropped at LUHS Attn: Jason Morris. Checks to: Lakeland Youth Softball. 

Keep an eye out for mini-camp registration forms. These are hosted by the Lakeland Union Softball Program from noon to 2 p.m. on Sundays, March 29 and April 5. Prior to that, girls are welcome to come to Open Gyms from noon to 2 p.m. at the high school. Equipment (but not coaching/supervision) will be provided at this time and gives girls a time to practice with others onsite. Provide supervision if taking advantage of this open gym time.
