12U Brunswick Blitz Team Claims First Place in Hudson Mohawk Travel League

We are proud to announce our 12U Brunswick Blitz team was awarded first place in Hudson Mohawk’s travel league for the 2017 season.  This was no easy feat, but the players and coaches worked hard both during the regular season and the off season.

The team finished with an impressive season record of 33-12-3.  If you see any of the coaches or players, please extend congratulations for their hard work and dedication.

 

Fall Ball Registration is OPEN!!

Registration for Fall Ball is now open!!!

Players can be registered following this link: https://brunswicksoftball.siplay.com/site/ . Registration will remain open until August 20th. The fee this year is $65 and will consist of double headers on the following 4 Sundays: 9/10/17, 9/17/17, 9/24/17, & 10/1/17. All players will be provided with a Brunswick Girls Softball shirt.

Fall Ball is a little more competitive than House League. Players will learn more advanced skills and traveling to other fields in the Capital District is expected. Not all games are played at Brunswick Softball fields.

There will be one team at each level (10U, 12U, 14U, and 17U) consisting of the Travel Players and the rest of the teams will be filled in with House Players.

If your child makes the Travel Team they MUST play in Fall Ball, no exceptions. More information on travel tryout dates and times will be provided soon.

Age is determined by what the child will be on 12/31/2017.

2017-2018 Travel Manager Applications

Hello All!

I would like to start off by thanking you all for your support this past house league season. I hope your daughters all had a great year and we look forward to Fall Ball this September.

We are currently looking for applications for travel managers for the 2017-2018 travel season.  If you are interested in applying, please send our Travel Coordinator, Mike Madigan, an email outlining your intent to apply, your qualifications to serve as a travel manager for the upcoming season, and the age level you are applying for.  Experience both within and outside of Brunswick Girls Softball should be included.

Many thanks to Manager Eric Buckley, Coach Lisa Buckley, and Coach Ed Schlederer for supporting this talented group of girls!

2017 Season Information

It’s an exciting time for Brunswick Girls Softball! We are inching ever closer to opening day, which will be Saturday April 15th at 9am.  As we have done in past years, picture night will be held prior to opening day and will include the distribution of uniforms.  In respect for Good Friday, which is Friday the 14th, we have decided to hold picture night on Thursday, April 13th at the Brunswick Community Center on Key’s Lane.

The board has been working hard getting prepared for the upcoming season. There will be some exciting changes this year and I am pleased to be able to share one of them with you all now.

In past years, the minors division was comprised of girls aged 9-12 years old. This wide of a range in age posed some challenges as there were potentially large differences in skillsets between the players.  Because of the differing skills, there were also safety concerns for the younger players.  Beginning this year, the minors division will be split into two different levels, Minors AA and Minors AAA.  Outlined below are the differences in each level.  Making this change better aligns 10U and 12U rules with standard ASA guidelines.

Minors AA Minors AAA
Ages: 9-10 year olds Ages: 11-12 year olds
Pitching distance: 35 feet Pitching distance: 40 feet
Ball size: 11 inch Ball Size: 12 inch

 

At our most recent meeting, managers were selected and will be contacted this weekend. Managers will be selecting their teams on Wednesday, March 21st during the 2017 draft which will also be held at the Brunswick Community Center on Keys Lane.

Thanks to all of you who have contacted us to assist with field crew and fundraising. It is greatly appreciated!  If there is an interest in assisting with the concession stand, please let us know!
