***TRYOUT UPDATE***

The NWI SOX will be having tryouts for a 9u team. Potential players MUST have a birth year of 2006 or later. Tryout dates and time for this team are the same dates and times for the 10u tryout.

MEADOWS PARK, HIGHLAND INDIANA, 9400 SOUTHMOOR AVE.

As the 2015 softball season comes to an end it is time once again to start thinking about 2016. We here at the NWI SOX Fastpitch Program hope that we are on your list for 2016 tryouts.
 
In 2015 we fielded four successful travel teams, 10u, 11u, 13u, and 14u. Two of our 2015 teams won state championships, 11u team won the Indiana USSSA State Championship and our 14u team was crowned ASA/USA Indiana State Champs, that is a combined program total of 8 state championships in our five year history. Also this past season our four teams have a combined total of 16 Tournament Championships (including fall season). In our short five year history we have qualified and attended 9 "ASA/USA National Championship Tournaments" at various locations throughout the country, and 3 times we have sent teams to the "PGF National Tournament" in Huntington Beach California. 
As a program we challenge our players with a competitive tournament schedule, we strive to play the best teams in the Chicago area and Midwest Region, at National tournaments we face the country's best teams and programs!!
 
In 2016 we are hopeful to have six teams, 10u, 11u, 12u, 13u, 14u, and 16u. Of course this depends on a quality turnout at tryouts!! We can do nothing without the support of you parents, you are the backbone of any organization. Personally I feel your daughter will receive quality coaching at each age level, and she will be challenged at practice and games.
 
Please take a look at our tryout times and dates, we hope you can find time to attend the correct age level for your softball player. If the dates we have posted do not work for you please contact me to arrange a private tryout!!  
 
If at any time you have a question or concern please do not hesitate to contact me.
