No Tryouts or Group Training
Once a student becomes a member of the school team they cannot participate in a tryout for a college team or a non-school team in the same sport (softball) until their school team membership is over. They may also not be involved in any group training in the same sport (softball) during the season.

Private Instruction Is Permitted
During the school season a student/athlete may continue to receive private instruction in the same sport that they are participating in (softball). Private instruction is defined as one on one instruction. A support person may be present but not receive instruction. For instance, if the player was going to a pitching lesson the school catcher could go to “support” and catch, but the catcher cannot receive instruction during the lesson. A pitcher could not go to a group pitching lesson during the season.

Part of the rationale for the rule is when players are participating on the school team, they need to do things the way the school coach has asked. When multiple people are giving instruction the player is challenged with what advice to follow and it becomes confusing. If a player is taking private lessons they should inform the school coach.

No participation on a Non-School team
During the school season a player may not also play on a non-school team in the same sport. School team membership is over when a players school squad has completed their last game. At that point they can begin playing on a non-school team but are limited to no more than 5 from the same school squad playing or practicing together until the Saturday before Memorial Day. << continue >>
