OVERVIEW:

The USA Softball of Sacramento Select (aka “B”) program designed to create a more competitive environment for players to participate in, while remaining in a recreational league setting. This program will allow USA Softball Recreational leagues to form teams to represent their league on a year-round basis.

Each league will be eligible to put together Select teams at the beginning of the year to compete against the other Select teams formed by other leagues. This allows the league to retain the better players while keeping them in the recreational league. This in turn creates a higher base level of play in the recreational league and drives participation back to the rec program. 

West Sacramento Girls Softball League will participate in this program for the 2018 season with the intention of fielding teams at the 12U level. 

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY:

  1. Players must be registered with West Sacramento Girls Softball League for the 2018 spring season to be eligible to try out for, or participate on, the Select program.
  2. The players on the Select team may participate in the recreational league as well.
  3. All players must live within the approved boundaries of West Sacramento Girls Softball League.
  4. Any player that participates with any other team outside of their recreational league or Select Team during the recreational league season will forfeit their eligibility. Example; playing travel ball teams that play in tournaments hosted by All Star Tournaments, All Worlds, DF and NSA.
  5. All players must participate in a tryout for their respective divisions.

SCHEDULE:

The tournament schedule is a set schedule from March – June/July. After that, teams may choose to continue to play together for the summer/fall months. It should be the goal of most teams to participate in the USA Softball Western Nationals; typically the last week of July/first week of August.

 

Below shows the preliminary 2018 Select Schedule and is still subject to change. Once settled by USA Softball of Sacramento, the final Select Schedule for the 2018 season will be provided.

  • Once the player has committed to the Select team, there will be an additional tournament fee of approximately $350 / per player (based on a 12 player per team format). This fee will cover all 8-tournament entry fees along with a game player jersey and visor.
  • Select teams may opt to fundraise, with the approval of the WSGSL Board, to cover costs associated with tournaments in addition to the scheduled 8-tournament.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

All additional tournaments are the responsibility of the team to select, fundraise for and contact the tournament director to enter. Teams may ONLY play in USA Softball (aka ASA) tournaments. Participation in any other type of event (e.g. NSA, USSSA, DF, PGF, etc.), without first obtaining a waiver, will result in re-classification to the “A” program.
