    Summer Is Around the Corner! Tryouts Are May 21

    Summer travel league tryouts for Hingham 10u, 12u and 14u teams are scheduled for Sunday, May 21 at Bare Cove/Carlson Field. The times are still TBD.  We will provide times for the tryout once registration is complete.

    Girls born between 2008 and 2014 that would like to play in the summer travel league need to both register for and attend the tryouts. The registration link is set out below.  If you cannot attend tryouts, please register for the tryout and let us know that you cannot attend so other arrangements for an evaluation can be made. We are not asking for payment now. If your daughter is placed on a team we will provide a link to complete payment at that time. 


    What is the Summer/Travel league?

    The summer travel league is a competitive option open to girls born between 2008 and 2014. All Hingham 10u, 12u and 14u teams participate in the South Shore Summer League.  Please note that summer travel league teams are based on birth date:

    • 10U – Born 2012-2014 (10yrs old or younger on Jan 1, 2023)
    • 12U – Born 2010 or later  (12yrs old or younger on Jan 1, 2023)
    • 14U – Born 2008 or later  (14yrs old or younger on Jan 1, 2023)

    Our goal is to have as many girls play as possible and to field as many teams as possible in each of the age brackets. Roster sizes are limited to 12-13 girls so player registration numbers, as well as the number of coaching volunteers, will dictate how many teams we will carry and if there will be cuts. We encourage all girls to tryout and all parents to volunteer. We will do our best to ensure we place as many girls as possible and if there are enough girls and coaches to field multiple teams in a given age bracket, we will follow the A/B/C format of the South Shore Summer League. 

    What to expect with Summer/Travel softball: 

    Generally, the level of play is more competitive than the spring softball season as the girls will face other travel teams from throughout the South Shore, including Milton, Canton, Bridgewater, Plymouth, etc. While competitive, the season also offers the girls a fun and rewarding experience, as they are able to further develop their softball skills in a more challenging but supportive environment that focuses heavily on the development of fundamental skills. 

    In addition, while we understand there will be conflicts that arise in the summer, it is expected that the girls selected will be available for the vast majority of games. There are two games each week, typically played Monday – Thursday. The season starts the week of June 19th and runs through the end of July/early August depending on the playoffs. 

    If there are any questions about the level of play, the commitment required or anything else please feel free to reach out to us directly at the email address below.
