It is never too early to start thinking about the snow melting, warm weather, and softball season!! It’s registration time for the 2021 Mount Horeb Vikings Youth Softball Season!
Registration will be open from January 10th – March 10th.
Player registration for all ages / divisions = $115.
An informational zoom meeting for parents will be held on two nights:
- U10: March 14th @ 700pm
- U12 & U14: March 18th @ 700pm
Parents of players ages 7-14 as of the end of 2020 (2nd through 9th grade) in the Mount Horeb school district wanting to participate should attend. If we have a similar number of participants as last year, we anticipate the following breakdown at each level: U10 – 4 x teams U12 – 3 x teams U14 – 2 x teams.
U10 and U12 teams were finalized at the tryouts last fall. If there is enough interest and coaches who are willing to commit additional time to organize and search for tournaments then a second tournament team can be formed at any level (additional fees for tournaments will be added).
At this point, the South Central League, Sugar River League and Greater Dane League have each said they are planning on playing in 2021. More details on league play once we get closer to Spring.
Anyone interested in coaching please contact me. We will aim to have 2-3 coaches per team. Age divisions are determined based on age as of 12/31/2020, i,e. 10 years or younger as of 12/31/2020 will be in U10 division. This is a policy of the Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) that the Wisconsin South Central Softball League follows. Players may be permitted to play up a division if participant numbers and skill level allow, but cannot play down.
We typically have two Sundays in March where we have skill practice and evaluation sessions to assist in forming teams. We will be waiting until we get closer to Spring to make a final determination on if this will be an option to us in some kind of format.
JERSEYS / APPAREL
For U10 & U12 players, the jerseys are the same as 2020, so if your jersey fits and is in good condition, no need to order a new jersey in 2021. Sample jerseys are available at MarkIt (1260 Springdale St, Mt Horeb) if your player would like to try them on. They tend to run small, so we strongly encourage stopping in at MarkIt before entering a size on the registration form. Cost for re-orders will be the responsibility of the players/parents. There is an option on the registration form to order two jerseys in case you’d like an extra on hand. U14 players should NOT order a jersey on the registration form. The coaches will coordinate with the team on creating their own unique jersey design and order separately at a later date. Mount Horeb Softball apparel will be available for purchase in April, we will send a separate email when ordering is available.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480.639.8638.
