Rep Tryout Information


Ridge Meadows Minor Softball Association would like to invite you to come tryout for Rep Softball.


What is Rep Fastpitch?

  • Rep in the name of the A & B divisions within Softball BC’s minor program.
    • A is the top division with the top players within their area. It usually has a greater time commitment than B.
    • B is the 2nd division and consists of the next level of players.
  • Rep is for players that are looking to increase their skills, looking for more of a challenge and be more competitive than in House


What is the commitment level?

  • In the off-season
    • This depends on the coaches’ expectations but generally
      • 2 team practices per week
      • 1 pitching/catching per week
    • October – March
  • During the season
    • Games twice a week with possible practice
    • Teams may also participate in roughly 4+ tournaments a season.
      • This is coach and team dependant


What is the cost?

  • Team fees:
    • Each team will have a team budget
      • B and younger teams: ~ $1200-2000/ player
      • A (older): ~$4000-5000/ player
    • These fees would include most team expenses including equipment, specialty training, tournament entry fees, travel for non-parent coaches, misc team expenses.
    • The team budget can be paid for via parent contributions, fundraising or a combination of both.

Try-out Information

When are Try-Outs Held?

  • Open try-outs are held in the first week of September every year for our A & B teams. These are announced in late July/early August. These tryouts are for teams that will compete in the following Spring season.

Who can attend Try-Outs?

  • Anyone can attend the A & B try-outs.

How do I sign up for Try-Outs?

What do Try-Outs look like?

  • There will be 2, 2 hour sessions and the expectation is that you attend both sessions, unless told otherwise.
    • Occasionally, the B teams might have to have an extra try-out if they are unable to make their decisions at the end of the 2nd try-out
  • Usually, it will be a series of stations with players showing coaches their throwing, fielding, hitting, running, pitching and catching.
  • Players will wear numbers and will be expected to run through the stations without parent involvement

What happens after a try-out session?

  • If there is an A team in your age group the A coach will make their selection first. The coach will let you know at tryouts when to expect a phone call by.  If you do not receive a phone call by the date and time indicated, you did not make the A team and you can register and tryout for the B tryouts.
  • If you did not make a Rep team you can choose to tryout for another team in another association or play within our House program but we encourage all players to try-out the following year.
