Jags Fastpitch

Becoming a member of a Jags Fastpitch travel softball team is a competitive process. Being a member of the Jags Fastpitch Organization is an honor, but it also requires that you make certain commitments to your coaches, your team, the organization and to yourself.

Travel softball, compared to recreational softball (i.e., Birmingham Girls Softball League):

  • Is generally considered a higher level of competition;
  • Requires individual competitive tryouts;
  • Selects players primarily on their playing ability; and
  • Bases playing time on skill, production, attitude and experience;

In certain situations:

  • Playing time may be reduced based on missed practices and/or failure to meet the commitments and expectations;
  • Some players will exclusively play outfield or infield;
  • All players at the game may not necessarily bat; and
  • Some players may be asked to sit out an entire game.

Time commitment may include:

Fall (September 1st - October 31st)

  • One or two practices per week;
  • Doubleheader games played on the weekends; and
  • One or two local weekend tournaments.

Winter (January 1st – March 15th)

  • One or two practices per week; and
  • Pitchers and catchers only – a weekly pitching and catching clinic on Thursday evenings.

Spring (April 1st – June 15th)

  • Playing in the Birmingham Girls Softball League or other rec league; or
  • Playing for your respective middle or high school softball team.

Summer (June 15th – July 31st)

  • One or two practices per week;
  • Doubleheader games played twice per week; and
  • Approximately three to four weekend travel tournaments, some of which may require an overnight stay.

Besides committing to play, all Jags are required to make certain other commitments which include:

  • To always give my best effort;
  • To always have a positive attitude;
  • To represent the Jags Fastpitch Organization in an exemplary manner;
  • To continue to improve by applying the instruction and feedback I receive from my coaches;
  • To support my teammates both on and off the field;
  • To show respect for my coaches, umpires, parents and opposing players;
  • To spend time away from the team practicing softball; and
  • Having fun!
