2016 Softball

THE PROGRAM

The Carrollton Boosters softball program is a recreational intramural program for girls aged 4–17 as of December 31, 2015. Registered players are automatically assigned to the following leagues according to their date of birth:

4-year old Boys & Girls mixed T-Ball

5-6 Girls Softball
7-8 Girls Softball
9-10 Girls Softball
11-12 Girls softball
13-17 Girls Softball

All players are drafted onto teams, then play a schedule of games beginning in late April or early May. It is expected that the regular season, including all beginner-level leagues, will end before the July 4 break (approximately July 1 – July 5), with playoffs in competitive leagues extending into mid-July. Games are at Carrollton’s Riverview fields on the Fly, behind the Audubon Zoo.

Coaches will schedule practices after the teams are drafted. Practices may be at locations other than where the games are played.
Players will be issued a team shirt and visor, to be worn at all games. They will need an appropriately sized glove, plus either cleats (preferable) or tennis shoes. Most players also use their own bat and batting helmet, although these will also be provided for use during games.

REGISTRATION
To register, click on the registration tab and follow the procedure. The fee is $185 for your first child, plus $160 for each additional child. If registering more than one child, be sure to register all children before checking out. You may pay on line by credit card or you may choose the option to send a check, but note that your registration is not considered complete until fees are paid. Players who are not registered will not be graded or drafted onto teams.

Contact Alan Godchaux at
algodch@aol.com for help with registration or for payment assistance.

GRADING
All players, except for the 4’s and 5-6’s, must be graded. Grading will likely begin the weekend of April 2 (older leagues will grade later), so be sure to register your children by April 2 in order to assure them a spot in one of our competitive leagues. Consult our web site in mid-March for the detailed grading schedule.

COACHES

Coaching is an excellent way to not only develop a greater appreciation for baseball or softball, but to also form a special bond with your son or daughter as the season progresses. If you are interested in being a coach, simply answer “yes” to the question when registering, then also register yourself as a volunteer coach, and we will contact you.

SPONSORSHIPS
Please also consider sponsoring your child’s team. As a sponsor, you may pick the team’s colors and name (based on availability), and may include a business logo as well. You may also sponsor anonymously, and Carrollton can make your choices. Simply answer “yes” to the sponsor question when registering your child. The tax-deductible fee of $275 can be paid with your child’s registration by credit card or can be paid by a separate check. Later, after you have completed the registration, please return to our web site and click on the sponsor form link to submit your sponsor info or, if you prefer, simply e-mail your info to us as per below. Your sponsorship will be attached to your child’s team unless you specify otherwise. If you have any questions, please contact:
