Female athletes born in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000 are eligible to tryout and those who make the final selection will compete at the 2016 U21 Women’s Canadian Softball Championships, 2016 U18 Women’s Eastern Canadian Softball Championships, and compete locally throughout the 2016 season. Athletes selected to the 2016 NL Selects program will form the core of the selection pool for the Team NL female softball entry into the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

To enter the NL Selects/2017 TEAM NL U21 Women’s Softball Program, individual athletes must pre-register by emailing Head Coach Paul Smith at the address below. The cost to tryout is $50.00 (non-refundable) and athletes must sign and commit to the Team Member Agreement which outlines the expectations for all athletes, including (not limited to) technical skill training, strength and conditioning, and mental skills training.

Training will take place in various facilities throughout the St. John’s area, however arrangements will be made to provide opportunities for evaluation to athletes for which geography may otherwise be an obstacle.

Due to the anticipated competition for roster positions interested athletes are strongly encouraged to attend all practices. Once the training process begins information on future tryout dates and other expected participation will be communicated through email to individual athletes.
