2019 U14 FALL LEAGUE - EXTRA INNINGS

WINDMILLTRAVEL LEAGUE

U14 USA - FALL SEASON

2019 EXTRA INNINGS

An interesting and fun take on a Fall Softball Program while maintaining a competitive interest. Here is what the parameters and a schedule look like! 

All games are to be scheduled by the teams listed. Games may be played the same week and the days played may be mixed up. To add interest to the schedule the first 3 weeks will be a ROUND ROBIN.

Afterward, Weeks 4 thru 6 will be a seeded 4 team tournament with a 3 game guarantee played over a 3 week period. The seeding will be determined by the first 3 weeks of play. Games again will be scheduled by the teams opposing one another. A schedule for the first 3 weeks is to be determined before league play begins. The week 4 schedule will be determined at the conclusion of the first 3 weeks. To accomplish this we will have an email exchange prior to the start of the fall season.  

Umpires – the host secures the umpires unless other arrangements are made; but regardless, each team will share the umpire expense. Any costs for field rental or prep is to be shared. Umpires are paid before the game begins (no checks). 

Field use - the designated home team will host the game or arrange for the game to be played at the opponents site or a neutral site. In the first 3 weeks the team listed 2nd is the home team. In the final 3 weeks the team seeded the highest after the first 3 weeks is the home team. Any associated field/umpire expense is shared equally between the teams playing.

The game format and report of scores information is found by clicking here.

The schedule by week is:

 4 Team Round Robin

Team 1 = Marshall – Jessie Stuntebeck <jessiejo5@yahoo.com>

Team 2 + Mad City Crush Red - Tracy Earll <tracyearll1@gmail.com>

Seed is determined by the results of the first 3 weeks of play. When there is a 2-way tie, the winner of the game where the 2 tied competitors played against each other is awarded the higher seed standing.

 Week Four – Game 1 = Seed 1 v Seed 4; Game 2 = Seed 2 v Seed 3

Week Five – Game 3 = W1 v W2; Game 4 = L1 v L2; Game 5 = L3 v L4

10U MOD REVIEW

We did some changes for the 10U MOD Tournament based upon the final standings and won loss records at this level. Ultimately the challenge was to set up a bracket in which players can compete.

The brackets we came up with allow participants from the highest skill level all the way to beginners to meet and play others around their same level of play. These replace the previous brackets. Please let parents and fans know of these changes. 

Division 10U Mod Red Accent as of 7/31/2019 [Game 7 is played Friday]

2019 EOY Tournament Schedule

 

Last week when asked when the schedules for the tournament would be release our answer was soon but we want to avoid any re-seeding so we need to look whether the outcome of any games yet to be played will have an effect on the standings. That is an “as of” decision Barb and I will be making. Others may be wondering also so we posted this on FB and the website.

Well yesterday we had 11 makeup games reported and the outcomes changed the so called landscape for the tournament. The 10U MOD brackets are now under review. The review will take place early evening.

 

Please note update of your 10U Mach tournament bracket. The bracket was incomplete awaiting the results of games played on Monday, July 29. The website has been updated.

Lady Junior Warrior Softball

REGISTRATION Lakeside softball is open to all girls attending one of our Lakeside federation schools or the schools within the federation school's community. Games are held by age group at various parks in participating communities.

GOALS Our goals are to further develop each girl's skills through quality instruction and help each one gain confidence in her ability to contribute both offensively and defensively, to provide competitive opportunities to challenge each girl, to encourage each girl to continue playing at the high school level, and to have fun while building Christian friendships.

A player's age as of December 31, 2018 determines the age in which the player is eligible to play. The youngest player in our program is age 5 as of 12/31/18 and would play in the U8 age group.

  • A parent or guardian may request an exception to age so that their daughter may play on more than one team or play with an older age group by contacting Ken Walters.
  • Exceptions will be reviewed after the deadline when final numbers are determined for each level.

The deadline for registration and the payment of fee is Friday, March 22.
