As in past years, TGSL will be participating in the USA Select B program this spring. The Select B program is for the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions and provides an advanced playing experience for girls that are also playing on traditional recreational level softball teams. The Select season will run from approximately January 28 to March 25, 2018. The teams will limit themselves to gathering just one day a week (Sunday) for either practice or games. A typical spring Select Season will have TGSL Select teams scrimmaging and playing in a tournament with Select teams from other leagues.

The Select season begins with tryouts. Select tryouts are different than the recreational league evaluations, because, unfortunately, not everyone who attends the tryout sessions will be chosen to play on a team. Each Select team will have a final roster that will be somewhere between 11 and 14 players. The number of Select teams in each division will be determined based upon the number of qualified participants (and coaches) participating in the tryouts. The selection process will begin with the first tryout session on January 20, 2018 (10U at 10 AM, 12U at 1pm, and 14U at 10 AM) at the Levy fields (the first tryout will also include a brief information session for parents). The second tryout session will take place the following day on January 21, 2018, also at 10 AM (10U), 1 PM (12U) and 10 AM (14U). Prospective players must attend at least one of the tryout sessions, and are strongly encouraged to attend both. Following the second tryout session, final team selections will be made and players will then be notified.

We encourage anyone and everyone who is in the 10U, 12U and 14U Division who wants to tryout to come do so. Should you have any questions, please email Lance White (lwhite572@ymail.com). We look forward to seeing you out there!

Additionally, if you are interested in managing a 2018 Spring Select team, please complete the attached application and return to the TGSL President, Roger Hsu (rc36ucla@gmail.com). Qualified applicants must be a current TGSL manager and possess an ACE level coaching certification.

Regards, TGSL Board
