We hope that the beginning of your school year has gotten off to a great start.
Just a quick note regarding open gyms for this school year —- Open gyms will continue on Sunday evenings from 4:00-6:00 on the softball field as long as the weather permits. Once the weather starts to change, open gyms will then be changed to Monday evenings from 7:30-9:00PM in the Raider Gym. ANY AND ALL girls interested in playing softball are encouraged to attend. This is in no way mandatory, but an opportunity for you to get your hands on a bat and ball and also to meet the coaching staff.
Also…from this point forward, Wednesday open gyms are cancelled due to other commitments.
We look forward to seeing all of you soon!

Any and all players are welcomed to come tryout.

My apologies for the last post. I didn’t realize that nothing was posted until it was too late.
The Sheboygan Strikers are introducing an ELITE program for the 14/16/18 levels. The tryouts were this past Thursday. The 14U team is filled, but they are still looking for players for the 16U and 18U levels. There will be a second and final tryout on Sunday, September 7 at North High School. Time is yet to be determined. They are looking, in particular, for pitchers, catchers, and outfielders for the 16U team and looking for ALL positions for the 18U team. More information is located at the Sheboygan Strikers web page:
You can contact the Sheboygan Strikers directly with questions. This is an EXCELLENT opportunity for your daughter to get better by competing against some of the best softball teams in the state as well as the nation. The Sheboygan North softball staff is completely on board with this program and we highly encourage all players to participate.
Thanks. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Hello, all. I hope you are enjoying your summer as it quickly fades away.

Just a reminder that we are meeting at 5:30PM at North High to depart for the Lakeshore Rise tournament in Two Rivers. Any parents that are driving up and would be willing to take other players, please meet at North as well. If you are meeting us up in Two Rivers, please be there by 6:45 to get your uniform so we can be ready to warm up at 7:00 for our 8:00 game. The weather may be cool, so if you care to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath, please make sure it is white. Also, all players are responsible for their own navy socks. The ones you were issued for the season will work just fine. We have 16 players for Friday night and we only have 15 pairs of matching pants. If you were on the JV team and have yet to turn your game pants in, please bring them on Friday.
I found out a few days ago that we will be batting the entire roster. I am not a fan of this as I think it makes a mockery of the game. Anyway, that means, with 16 players, you may only get one at bat per game. I’m sorry for this. We also only have a 1 hour and 15 minute time limit. I plan on coaching the best I can to go for the win as well as get everyone some field time if the situation allows for it. Thanks in advance for understanding.
Hopefully we’ll see you tomorrow night!

This post contains a lot of information about the Lakeshore Rise Tournament coming up next weekend. Our first game is on Friday, July 25 at 8:00PM versus Merton Fillies and our second game is on Saturday, July 26 at 12:30PM versus Hartland Lady Hawks. Both of these games are in pool play. After the games are decided, we will be placed into bracket play. The 1, 2, and 7 seeds will not play until Sunday. The 3-6 seeds will play another game on Saturday night (either 6:30 or 8:00). Once we get into bracket play, a loss will eliminate us. So, there is a chance (hopefully not) that we will not be playing on Sunday. ALL the games are at Neshotah Park in Two Rivers. I will get directions to you in another upcoming post. If players need rides, we will be meeting at the North Diamonds at 5:30PM on Friday. We will also be handing out uniforms at that point. If you can’t make it to North and will be meeting us up at Two Rivers, please be there by 7:00PM. We will be using the JV Uniforms from this past year (white tops and Navy Pants). All players are responsible for their own pair of long navy socks (the ones from this past season will work).
Currently, this is the list of players we have signed up to play this weekend. If you are not on this list and want to play, please let me know. Also, if you are on this list and cannot play, also please let me know.
Van Der Puy, Abby
Dulmes, Hazel (possibly not on Friday)
Prestley, Becky (until 4:30PM on Saturday)
Warden, Jenna (not Saturday)
Also…if anyone knows someone that has experience catching and they want to play next weekend, please let me know. That is one position we are really struggling with.
If you have any questions, please contact me (email@example.com or 920-889-1040) as soon as possible.

We will be taking down the outfield fences on both softball fields tomorrow beginning at 11:00AM. The weather should be great, so I don’t anticipate any problems. If you are able to help, we would love to see you tomorrow morning. With a good number of hands, this project shouldn’t take more than an hour.
We hope to see you tomorrow morning at 11:00!
