2021 Spartan Travel Softball

The 2021 Spartan Travel Softball Program anticipates fielding teams in 10U, 12U, and 14U. Our summer Travel program is for players who want to make a serious commitment to playing competitive fast-pitch softball. The teams participate in winter indoor practice* and conditioning to prepare for the upcoming spring and summer Travel season.  Tryouts for non-current Spartan Travel players will be held in mid-August. Visit the Travel section of our website for specifics.

If our turnout meets expectations, we will have 2 teams at each division and will roster them as A and B teams. This will give our most talented players the opportunity to play with similarly skilled teammates on more competitive teams. Players on the other team will continue developing skills and play games against like competition. The most experienced players on each team will have opportunities to earn more playing time, get experience at more positions, and develop skills as team leaders.

In 2021, we expect each Travel team will play in 4-5 weekend tournaments, including up to 2 USSSA sanctioned, out-of-town tournaments. Fees will be $1,600 and cover the winter indoor training program, indoor hitting practices, tournament fees, field and umpire costs, any applicable House League fees, as well as coaches salaries.

The following Travel team levels are applicable based on the the player's birth year:
  • 14U - Born 2006 or 2007
  • 12U - Born 2008 or 2009
  • 10U - Born 2010 or later
If you have previously created a username and password for the NGSA website, you should use those to register. If you have not previously registered with the NGSA, you will need to create an account and complete additional basic registration information. We strongly suggest you use a computer instead of a tablet or phone during the registration process.  

Please be aware that you will be required to upload a copy of your daughter’s birth certificate for proof of age (required for the league and tournaments). We recommend that you have an electronic copy of your daughter’s birth certificate prior to starting registration. The preferred format is .pdf, but we can also accept .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, .png, .doc, and .docx (max file size of 3mb). If you are having troubles with this, please contact us.

Registration will remain open until 9pm on August 21, 2020. All registrations must be completed on-line. Please only register each player for her applicable age level.

*Indoor practice schedule may be altered, as appropriate, pending the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020 House League Plus Registration

The NGSA 2020 House League Plus Program is being run by NGSA Travel coaches who have led our NGSA clinics and training in the past. The program will be tailored to individual player experience and skill level. Our professional coaches will help build fundamentals for newer players and build on skills for intermediate and advanced players. This program provides a good lead-in to Travel softball tryouts that are held in late summer as well as skill practice for the 2021 House League season. (Ages 7-14)

2020 Season: Our clinic outdoor field sessions will include skills and drills to cover throwing, hitting, pitching, fielding, base-running, player safety and more. Our game days will put all those learned skills to use!

Want to volunteer?
We are looking for 2-4 parent coaches to help out at each session - no experience necessary!! We are looking for parents who have an interest in developing their coaching skills and have a desire to coach in future House League seasons. Email us at [email protected] if interested!

Please note:
This is a new program to NGSA and very different from the House League Plus in past years. We are asking for some flexibility as timing on Sundays and possibly other days may change due to enrollment numbers.
