Selection Process:

The Northern Region (Region 8) has the opportunity to field a total of two teams (30 athletes and 4 coaches) for participation in the USA Softball All-American Games.

In an effort to streamline the try-out process for the first year, the 30 athlete spots and 4 coach spots have been divided among the 4 Associations within our Region.

Each association will select their participants and all athletes will be put in a pool to create the 2 teams to represent our Region at the USA Softball All-American games. Final teams will be selected by July 1st.
