B Select Program

Registration is now open for our Spring 2022 season for Northwest Girls Softball and we are also excited to announce the return of our B-Select Program!

Northwest Girls Softball is excited to announce the return of our B-Select Program (Travel Ball). This program is designed to offer elite NWGS players an opportunity to enhance their development, expand their experiences and to take their game to the next level by playing against other B-Select and A Ball programs throughout the Southwest.  This program is geared towards players who desire to eventually move to an A Ball program but want to gain experience before making the jump.

The B-Select Program is offered for our 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U Divisions

The NWGS B-Select Program (Travel Ball) serves as an addition to our recreation league. Players must be registered to a NWGS recreational team to be allowed to compete during the B-Select season.  The season is going to run January-July 2022 and will cost $325 for spring with an additional $325 due in May when the team then will become the All Star Team.  The tournament's we are looking into doing for the spring season are the USA Softball Valentine's Day Classic in Las Vegas on February 12, 2022 and the USA Softball St. Paddy's Blast in Las Vegas on March 5, 2022.  These may differ from team to team.

The recreational season takes priority, and there will not be any interference with any regular season schedules (practices or games) from the B-Select teams. Players will participate in additional practices, friendlies, and tournaments.  The emphasis will be on providing our more experienced players additional opportunities to play at a more competitive level without having the uncertainty of moving to A-Ball programs with unanticipated costs.  Teams are encouraged to participate in local tournaments and tournaments close by to keep the cost down for families.

We would like to congratulate the coaches who were selected for this 2022 season!  We appreciate their dedication to the program and their commitment to their players!
* Cory Smith- 10U.
