Spring Select 2023

SPRING 2023 SELECT - AGES 8U TO 14U 

In Spring, all players must play on a recreational team. For girls who are looking for additional competitive play, select teams may be a fun way to get in extra games for your passionate player.

A Spring Select Team is a collaboration of TGS players from all recreation teams who are interested in playing at a more competitive level against other Select teams from leagues all over Orange County and surrounding counties. Select games are double headers played on Sundays.

**It is important to note, playing select means your child will play one weekday rec game, one Saturday rec game, and Sunday double header Select games.**

  • The extra costs associated with Select are:
    • $50 - $60 to cover the cost of a jersey and socks
    • $5 per player every  game-day for umpire costs
    • Potential tournament cost could be $50 per player
  • Players must try out for the team and be selected. Player interest does not guarantee selection. Players will be notified within three days of the try-out.
  • Select teams are not all-star teams. Playing Select does not guarantee a position on an all-star roster.
  • Select players may not play travel ball concurrently.

USA Softball employs strict rules surrounding Select play that govern eligibility for All-Star play. 

 "Yellow Book" rules:

  • The Spring Select team plays doubleheader “friendlies” on Sundays through April 2, 2023

  • Players who participate on a Select team, must also play on a recreational team and attend 75% of their recreation games or they will become ineligible for All-Stars. 

  • Teams are only allowed to meet for practices or games one time per week on Sundays. 

  • Players must play Select in the age division they intend to play All-Stars in.
