Postseason Softball FAQ

Do all players that try out make a team? Depending on the number of players that try out, not all players may be selected for a team. Teams are meant to be competitive, while ensuring all players have ample playing opportunity.


What is the time commitment? Teams will practice as time permits prior to the end of the House season, through the end of June.  From early July, teams will continue to practice and play in tournaments. Tournament games can start as early as Wednesday or Thursday night, and can go through Sunday. Weekday games are at night, but several games are usually scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays.


What if my player can't make a tournament? If your player can't make one tournament that does not necessarily preclude them from post-season play.  But it may be a factor managers consider when selecting teams.


What if we can't make evaluations? We strongly encourage your player to attend evaluations if they are interested in playing.  Teams will be selected and finalized within days of the evaluation date.  If your player absolutely cannot be available, please contact Jeremy Freeland -


At LZBSA we divide in-house girls' softball into five different age groups, starting at age 7 and continuing through age 18.  The Leagues are called Tyro (1st and 2nd grade), Junior (3rd and 4th grade), Intermediate (5th and 6th grade), Filly (7th - Sophomore) and Senior (Junior & Senior).

We utilize an school grades for all leagues.  For Tyro, Juniors and Intermediates, the regular season starts on the last Friday in April and concludes the 3rd week of June, with playoffs typically finishing by the 1st of July, and post-season all-star teams playing in July.  The Fillies start one week later but finish near the same time.  The Senior league starts in early June and finishes in late July, since they often have some girls that play High School softball.
