Suburban Tournament Teams
Suburban Athletics tournament softball teams are offered for those players interested in competing at a higher level within their age group. Tournament teams require a greater commitment in that each participant is expected to attend all practices, games, weekend tournaments and other team activities. Teams will typically have practices 1-2 times per week in addition to playing on a league team 2 nights a week. The season will include 3-6 weekends over the course of the season. The tournament players will not all play equal time and based on the numbers of players on a tournament team, a “core / rotation” system may be used. Tournament families are expected to complete volunteer requirements for both league as well as additional volunteer requirements for tournament team participation.
Initial tournament player fees for 2021 are as follows:
Softball 8U $50
Softball 10U-12U $100
Softball 14U*-18U $150
*14U and up Tournament Softball Players will not participate in the 5th - 8th grade weekly league. There will be separate practices and games for the 14U Tournament players.
Softball Tournament Team ages are based on the players age as of January 1st.
Suburban Athletics provides an equal $ amount to each tournament team to help cover the entry fees of the tournaments.
