PQ STORM/Select Teams

PQ STORM/Select Teams - A partnership with STORM Softball and PQGSA

PQ GIRLS SOFTBALL "SELECT" RULES AND GUIDELINES:


WHAT IS THE SELECT PROGRAM?

The Select Program was formed by USA Softball (our league's governing body) to provide a more competitive environment for highly skilled Recreation league players. PQ STORM/Select is a way for girls who are interested in playing All-Stars in Summer 2019 to start playing together, while also participating on their Spring team. Teams will participate in extra practices, friendlies and a few tournaments.
WHAT IS THE EXTRA TIME COMMITMENT?

In addition to playing on a regular PQ Spring Rec team, girls who play in the STORM/Select program will play with a different group of teammates. PQ STORM/Select teams will play together from the time of team formation in late January until March 31. For comparison, Spring teams will remain together from late January until the year-end tournament concludes in May.

PQ STORM/Select teams will officially meet (game or practice) once per week, on Sundays normally. Practices and games for PQ STORM/Select Teams will be in addition to the player's normal practices and games for their recreation season teams.

Time commitment on Sundays will vary from week to week, based on a variety of things. Some Sundays might be open, some might have a practice, but other Sundays might require a much longer time commitment due to a tournament-style game schedule and/or possible travel to other fields in San Diego County.

Select practices and games will be in addition to Spring practices and games, not in place of them.

Spring Rec will take priority and if you are unable to commit time to both teams you should not sign up for Select.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SELECT PROGRAM?

The program is only available for girls in 10U, 12U, and 14U. All girls in these age groups are eligible for consideration, though not all players are guaranteed to be selected for a team. Players can't "play down" out of their age group in Select.
Interested participants must be registered for the Spring 2019 season with PQ Girls Softball and must participate fully with their PQ Spring Rec team.
HOW ARE TEAMS SELECTED FOR THE SELECT PROGRAM?

The number of teams for each age group to be determined by number of players interested and coach commitment.
PQ STORM/Select managers will offer spots to interested players. We ask that any players interested in playing Select, please contact the appropriate manager below:

WILL THERE BE ADDITIONAL COSTS?

Possibly, yes. Expenses for the PQ STORM/Select program will be managed by each team and are separate from Spring 2019 season fees.
HOW DOES SELECT IMPACT ALL-STARS?

Select participation has no bearing or weight on the all-star selection process.
