A $10 non-refundable fee(cash or check) is required per player trying out.

If asked to play, understand that this is a full-time commitment in attendance at practice and games.  Parents will be asked to help in some aspect of the tournaments we host.  Participation is key to keeping the player’s participation and uniform fees low.

Teams will play in approximately 4-6 tournaments per year (relatively local trying to avoid hotel stays but may have to travel an hour or so) as well as 6-8 league doubleheaders that may require some travel to the Milwaukee or Madison areas. We typically have 3-4 away games and 3-4 home games. Typically, our season is completed by early August so the girls have a few weeks to get ready for school.
