Tryouts consist of assessments of individual softball skills. Players will be evaluated based upon a rubric encompassing the following: Speed, footwork, throwing strength, throwing accuracy, fielding, hitting for power, hitting for contact and Softball IQ.
The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism.
Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff.
