2023 Season / Schedule Preview

Registration: Note that registration for Spring softball will open on Mon February 20th and close on Tue February 28th.  Please BE PREPARED to go when it opens.

You must have a current physical on file in order to register -- if it expires before June 17th 2023 you will need a new physical before registering.  DO NOT WAIT to get your physical completed.  It must be on file in the athletic office no later than Thu February 23rd.  Contact your regular doctor or look into Fast Care.  But get it completed asap.  Please email your updated physical to Kim in the Athletic Office at

Practice: The 2023 season will start on Monday March 13th.  Typically we would take off the Friday before Spring Break (March 31st) and restart on the Wednesday or Thursday of Spring Break (April 5th/6th).  But that is always dependent on game schedule and weather.  Right now our first game is scheduled for Tuesday April 4th (during Spring Break).

Most of our games are on Tues and Thurs with 5pm game starts.  But there are some exceptions (Monday, Friday, Saturday games).  And weather always causes changes in the schedule during the Spring.

See this link for current Softball game schedule across Varsity, JV and C-Squad (9A).  As non-conference, tournaments are scheduled they will be updated on this schedule (think early March 2023).

One day you won't ... so give it all today:

Believe in yourself.  Focus on yourself.  Motivate yourself.

Anatomy Of A Teammate

What kind of teammate are you...

"I'm looking for players who make their teammates better. You do that with enthusiasm and passion ..."  Mike Kryzewski

Anatomy Of Romero's Swing

Take a look at this great breakdown of one of the best hitters in softball - Sierra Romero from the University of Michigan.  A nice image of what she focuses on and feels on each swing, a video showing those points in motion.  She also discusses her mentality to her at bats.

Defying Doubt

Determination, hard work, belief in yourself can overcome doubts that others may see in you...
