Travel Team Evaluations for 2021-2022 Season: Darien Diamonds
Travel team tryouts take place at the end of the spring regular season. Travel teams play fall ball from September-November, and spring / summer ball April-July. All girls playing on a travel team MUST also play spring house softball (fall house softball is not a requirement but is an option). The emphasis is on learning specific positions, playing at a higher level of play than the house league provides, and playing in several tournaments throughout the year. Most travel is in CT but could extend to other nearby states in New England. DLL will attempt to field a travel team at each age level, but there may be seasons where a team may not be formed at a certain level due to number of players and or coaches.
Evals will take place at McGuane Challenger Field for the following age groups:
2012 birth year: Sunday June 13 4:30-6:00pm
2011 birth year: Sunday June 13 6:00-7:30pm
2010 birth year: Monday June 14 5:00-6:30
2009, 2008 & 2007 birth years: Monday June 14 6:30-8:00 pm (high school players '21-'22 school year are not eligible)
