WHAT IS OUR SELECT SPARTANS PROGRAM?
• More competitive play
• Create a sense of sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect with others!
• Chance to further develop your skills in softball
• Represent the Unionville Spartans!
It’s tryouts season and Unionville Minor Softball recognizes that not everybody might know about our select program. So here’s a quick crash course on what you need to know!
Q: What is Spartans Select?
A: Our Spartans Select program is more competitive play. Players will have weekly practices and compete in 1 day weekend tournaments around the GTA (With the exception of our 2 day provincial championships). Players must attend tryouts to be eligible for the team.
Q: Do I have to play house league?
A: YES ALL SPARTANS PLAYERS MUST PLAY ON THEIR HOUSELEAGUE TEAM IN ADDITION TO THEIR SELECT TEAM. YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED UMSA PLAYER TO TRY OUT.
Q: Is there a cost?
A: Spartans select is an additional fee to cover the cost of tryouts, uniforms, equipment and tournament fees.
Q: How do I join?
A: Keep a watch out for tryout announcements in your division! Spartans tryouts can only occur once we have a select coach in place for that division (see below). Once tryouts have been announced you MUST attend at least 2-3 (depending on the division) of the tryouts.
Q: Who picks the teams?
A: The coaches will evaluate players during tryouts. Please note that no Spartans team is picked until ALL tryouts are complete. The tryouts are open, meaning no child is guaranteed a spot whether or not they’ve been on the team in the past. That means new players are ALWAYS encouraged to join and ALWAYS given a fair shot at the team. Whether you’re new or returning we hope to see you at the tryouts!
UMSA’s select program is a great way to build your skills and form lasting friendships. Learn important life skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership and have fun doing it!
