About the TriTown Titans Program

The TriTown Titans softball is a highly competitive softball program that begins in late June and ends in early August. Teams are made up of players from Topsfield, Boxford and Middleton, and players must try out to be considered for placement on a team. Due to the competitive nature of these games, the TriTown Titans program cannot guarantee that all players that try out will make a team, but we encourage all players to attend the tryout sessions.

Games are played as (1) home game per week at Klock Park in Topsfield, and (1) away game per week. All games start at 6:15pm and require that players arrive to the field 45 minutes prior to the start of each game for warm ups. Practice is scheduled by the head coach and attendance is mandatory. Please keep in mind that this program requires that players attend the majority of the games and practice (80% or more) during this short summer season to ensure the team remains competitive week in and week out.

Players Age and Teams

The TriTown Titans program will typically field (1) team for each age level (U12, U14 and U18). Teams typically play in the B division for their respective age group. If a team is highly skilled, they may be placed in the A division to ensure games are competitive. Players should attend the try out session that best matches their age group. Note that a girls’ softball age is determined based on her age as of January 1st of the current year – this dictates which team she can play on. While younger players with advanced skills can play up, older players cannot play down in an age group.

·         U18 players must be 18 years or younger on 1/1/18.

·         U14 players must be 14 years or younger on 1/1/18.

·         U12 players must be 12 years or younger on 1/1/18.

 

Player Registration for Team Placement

Player registration will begin once teams are finalized announced. The fee for 2017 was $110 plus uniform (if a player does not already have a uniform – these are available at SewForth in Middleton). Any adjustment to the fees for 2018 will be announced prior to player registration. Instructions for payment and player registration will be sent to the players that were invited to play on each team.

Women's Softball

The Topsfield Women’s Softball League is an over 25 league with 8 teams.  We play with no umpires, no balls or strikes, and use one page of simple rules that exclude sliding, bunting, leading, and pass balls. The games are fun  and competitive in a low-key way, and the skill levels of the players range from women who played in high school and college to some who have never played before.

 

The games are played every Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. starting June 19th and ending August 21st at Pyebrook Park in Topsfield. 

The cost per player is $35.  Please complete the registration through SportsPilot.
