Softball

2024

The FHS softball team offers an opportunity for homeschool girls in grades 8 to 12 to compete at a varsity level. (The program is also open to private school girls, without a softball team at their schools.) Although the team will play at a varsity level, younger athletes will have an opportunity to grow and develop. The coaching staff will endeavor to provide young players game-like opportunities, including scrimmages against other JV teams when possible. Playing time will ultimately be determined by talent level.

Preseason Workouts

Although the girls will have some impromptu voluntary workouts throughout the year, the official pre-season will start in January with strength and conditioning twice a week. As the season draws closer, the number of practices will increase.

Tryouts 

While “official” tryout dates will occur the last week of February, preseason conditioning events are an important part of the tryout process.  At the end of tryouts, players who qualify for the team will receive official offers. A player receiving an offer will understand season expectations and the role she is anticipated to play during the season. Some players will receive a primary practice offer.

Cost

The cost for preseason registration is $50. The preseason registration fee is required regardless of whether you participate in preseason activities. The season fees will depend upon the number of players chosen and number of games scheduled, but registration will probably not exceed $500 (as a reference point, baseball the last few years has been in the $400 range).  Each girl will buy her own home and away jerseys and pants and be able to use them for multiple seasons, as long as she does not desire a number change. The uniform will hopefully not exceed $150.

Season

The goal will be to play a 20-game season, including a nationally recognized tournament each year, with games starting in mid-March and the season concluding in mid-May.  As a new program, we might not reach this 20-game limit in the early years, but that will be the goal. 

Expectations 

FHS is a Christ-centered organization and players and coaches will live and play in a manner worthy of a Christian calling.  This will include regular devotions and prayer.
