TravelUpdated Thursday July 14, 2016 by Latham Lassies.
The Latham Lassies travel season is a competitive, yet fun way to play after the Rec season is over. Most tournaments that the teams enter are local, i.e., Shen, Colonie, Bethlehem, etc. It is a great experience for the girls to play, learn and have fun.
The Latham Lassies Softball League is a member of the Hudson Mohawk District Traveling League which is affiliated with and governed by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA). Currently, the Traveling League consists of 35 youth softball associations throughout four counties in and around the Capital Region: Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer & Saratoga.
Latham Lassies selects teams to compete in the following age groups: 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U. By participating on a travel team, players get to expand the length of their softball season, and continue to develop skills and sportmanship.
Travel players are required to participate in the league's recreational program (no exceptions).
Tryouts for these teams occur in July!
The Executive Board selects Travel Managers for each age group after tryouts when the teams are formed.
