THANK YOU FOR REGISTERING FOR 612 FASTPITCH’S SPRING /SUMMER 2018 TRYOUTS. WE ARE PLEASED YOU ARE HERE AND EXCITED YOU HAVE DECIDED TO TRY OUT. THE LANGUAGE BELOW SPELLS OUT THE PARAMETERS FOR TRYOUT REGISTRATION.
This registration is for tryouts only. There will be a second registration required for the season and all associated fees. Tryout fees are non-refundable unless you cancel your registration before tryouts or if you are not assigned to a team.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLAYERS WHO WISH TO TRY AND PLAY-UP
Players trying out to “play up” will be bound by MGFA Inc. “play-up policy” and will need to register twice AND pay for two tryouts. The ability to play up is only available to second year 10U players and up. You can find details of the play-up policy in our Philosophy and Guidelines document.
For players trying to play up: The way the registration is set up, there is an original division and a play up division. You will select and pay for both registrations in a single session.
When it comes time during the registration process to select the age group you will select: Registering for Play Up Division (Password Required) During the play-up registration you will select your natural age group and also the age group you wish to try out for in the "play up" category. The password for the play-up is "PLAYUP" and is case sensitive. You will select and pay for two registrations during this transaction.
TRYOUT AND SEASON SCHOLARSHIPS
MGFA was founded on a principle of providing all girls in Minneapolis the opportunity to participate in competitive softball. If the tryout fees or season fees would be prohibitive for you or your family, please reach out in advance of tryouts to discuss scholarship options. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
GIRLS WHO LIVE OUTSIDE OF MINNEAPOLIS WHO DO NOT MEET OUR RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS
Specific rules in community-travel ball require waivers for players to play outside their geographic area. In order to be eligible for 612 Fastpitch, players must reside in the city of Minneapolis or have a parent or guardian who does. If you live outside Minneapolis but don’t have a community team to play for, please contact us in advance of tryouts and we will put you on a waiting list. If the organization determines we have space, we will try and make accommodations. Inquiries should be sent to email@example.com.
ALL PAYMENTS ARE DUE BEFORE A PLAYER CAN TRYOUT.
PLAYERS ARRIVING AT TRYOUTS WHO HAVE NOT REGISTERED OR PAID MUST DO BOTH BEFORE BEING EVALUATED. IF YOU ARRIVE WITH NO MEANS TO PAY OR NO GUARDIAN TO SIGN-OFF ON THE REGISTRATION, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TRY OUT. NO EXCEPTIONS.
PLAYERS/FAMILIES WITH OUTSTANDING FEES FROM PAST SEASONS, CLINICS, OR UNIFORM FEES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TRYOUT AND WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED TO A ROSTER UNTIL PAST DUE FEES ARE PAID IN FULL. MEMBERS WHO MEET THIS CRITERIA WILL BE CONTACTED IN ADVANCE OF TRYOUTS UNLESS THEY ATTEMPT SAME DAY REGISTRATION.
WHY DO WE CHARGE FOR TRYOUTS?
MGFA Inc. charges a fee for tryouts because we must pay Minneapolis Public Schools for the space and custodians and we pay outside evaluators to ensure a fair and transparent process. Not making the play-up age group is not the same as not being assigned to a team and you will not be refunded the additional try-out fee.
