Tryouts and practice will be held at Pinello Elementary. Athletes will be expected to run as a team from Sproul to Pinello and then back to Sproul when practice is over. Practices are closed to parents, siblings, and non-participating students.

Softball Tryout Information

Athletes must have a current physical and all sports paperwork turned in to Ms. Merrick in ISD before they are allowed to try out. If that cannot be completed before tryouts end, they will not make the team.

Try Outs will tentatively be on April 6th, 7th, & 8th immediately after school in the cafeteria. Dress out; just meet in the gym with athletic shoes on (No Cleats). Tryouts will end at 5:30pm.

There is access to a Port-a-Potty, but no one is allowed inside Pinello during practice. This is a cold weather season, so clothing should be layered. We practice in rain and snow. Cleats are not necessary; however, tennis shoes that can be tied tightly are required. Athletes should bring a glove, but all other equipment is provided.

Each night after tryouts, we will post student ID numbers of athletes invited back to try outs the next day. This will be posted on a link on our Sproul Softball webpage (under Athletics on the Sproul website). If your ID number is not listed, you did not make the team. However, we encourage you to try out again next year either at Sproul or in high school. We also encourage you to go out for track because they do not have to make cuts. If your ID is listed, please plan on attending the next day of tryouts/practice.

Once tryouts are finished, we will practice Monday through Friday from 3:00 - 5:30, and Saturdays from 10am - noon.

If you have any other questions, please contact either Coach Martinez or Coach Neifert.
