The Waves is looking for talented softball players who are dedicated, hard working, and have a desire to develop their skills and play at the highest level. We will form teams at the 12U-18U levels for the 2023-24 season. Rosters will be formed by birth year (i.e. 2006, 2007); however, we reserve the right to place any player within their age eligibility based on skill and team needs. The number of teams formed will be dependent on available talent with ideal roster sizes at 12-13 players.

  • 18U National - Matt Haefner & Telma Roesler
  • 16U National - Holly Weinberger & Evy Polsfuss
  • 15U National - Dan Beech & Assistant TBA
  • 14U Elite - Paige Larson & Ava Rud
  • 13U National - Meghan Schellhammer & Jeremy Brandt
  • 13/14U Gold - Angela Dabu & Assistant TBA
  • 12U Donnelly - Alix Donnelly & Saylor Donnelly
  • 11U Wilcox - Chris Wilcox & Chad Ritchie

*Additional coaches will be announced.

ALL players MUST complete the tryout registration form online before arrival. 

Offers will be made within 72 hours. All players receiving and accepting an offer MUST complete the full registration and arrange for your initial program deposit to hold your spot. No refunds will be issued once payment is received.


How many tryouts should I attend? Players only need to attend one tryout, but may be asked back for a second. We recommend that you attend your top choice(s) on the first day.

Is there a cost to attend tryouts? There is a $20.00 tryout fee for new players during registration. Current Waves players WILL NOT have to pay to tryout.

Will I hear back either way? Offers will be made within 72 hours. Players who are not selected will receive an email notification after all tryouts are completed.

Tryout Location

Tryouts will be held at The Ponds (field 1 & 2). There is some construction beginning on August 1st, so parking may be limited.
