new ihsa schedule updated january 27, 2021

The new schedule for High School Sports was released yesterday by the IHSA.   High School Softball will now start on April 5, 2021 and continue through June 19, 2021.  High School Coaches may start immediately with 3 contact days per week for a maximum of 6 hours.   Players will have the option to play with both their High School teams and Travel teams starting on June 4, 2021.   We are still going to stand with our local high school softball programs through these abnormal times and the IHSA schedule changes. When the time comes this spring and early summer to play softball, there will be no choice to be made, as our girls will be representing their local high school teams.  Life long memories are made at this stage of their lives and we want them to experience as much of that as they can. We'll all be there cheering for you each and every game!

College Scholarships

The USSSA E.A. Ramsey College Scholarship award is reserved for high school students (and USSSA athletes or youth sports officials!) who during the year of application are in their senior year of high school and already accepted into the college of their choice*.

Other sports may be added as participation in those sports increases and interest is shown.
