For the 2020 softball season we will be putting a bigger focus on our summer travel teams. In the past we opened up registration for summer softball towards the end of the recreational spring league. Often times we are scrambling to assemble teams, find coaches, and pull together uniforms. This results in there not being enough time to practice leading into the summer season which results in many of our summer teams struggling all summer and not being competitive enough.
The board of directors has decided that beginning with the 2020 season we are going to be getting away from calling it "summer softball" and we are now going to be calling the program "Canton Travel Softball". The Canton Travel Softball season will start in the beginning of January 2020. Teams will practice indoors from January through March for a minimum of 2 times per month. Hitting instruction will be run by former collegiate softball players. There will be separate pitching sessions with our pitching coach for those players that are identified by the coaches as being able to handle the pitching position and there will also be dedicated catcher training. The first tryout date is scheduled for Sunday October 26, 2019 (more details to follow as we get closer to this date). The registration for Travel Softball is live on the Canton Little League website, it will close on Wednesday 10/23/19.
The objective of the change is to make our travel teams more competitive in their summer leagues and tournaments. We are looking to build a culture within Canton Softball where the girls want to play and be a part of something special. More practice and training will lead to more confidence in the girls, a better knowledge of the game, and more competitive play.
