Important Tryout Information
The Minnesota State High School League dictates the official start of the softball season, which is the date when the coaches can begin to have contact wtih the players. Monday, March 12th is the start date for 2018.
Coach Pearson indicated at the Booster Club meeting on Monday, October 2nd, that tryouts will take place Wednesday, March 14th through Friday, March 16th.
Please note that the Mounds View School District has Spring Break that week. We cannot control the season start dates, and the season is too short to push tryouts off until the completion of Spring Break. The expectation is that any player interested in a starting position for any high school softball team be present for all three days of tryouts.
Please read this important letter from Coach Pearson to answer any questions: Letter
