Girls' Traveling General Information

This program is geared for those players who wish to regularly compete at a higher level of competition against teams from other communities.  It requires a strong commitment to both practice and games.  

Hudson Booster clinics and registration will be advertised in the Hudson Star Observer Newspaper as well as being posted on the website calendar.

Program overview & eligibility requirements

  • The Hudson Booster Program is for children in the Hudson School District that are not members of another softball team, whose games and/or practices would conflict with the Hudson Booster Program.
  • There is no “equal playing time” rule, but unless there are special circumstances, all team members will participate in every game.
  • There is no guarantee of participating in the Traveling Program if registration is received after try-outs are held.
  • If a player is not selected for a Traveling Team, the player will be encouraged to participate in the In House Program.
  • If you are not sure which program a player is eligible for, look at the AGE/GRADE-PROGRAM-CHART below.

Evaluation Details

  • A skills evaluation process determines placement on a Hudson Booster Traveling Softball program.
  • A selection committee appointed by the Hudson Booster Softball Committee will conduct the player evaluation.
  • Any person who has a daughter trying out for the particular age group being evaluated cannot be involved in the age evaluation.
  • The Selection Committee, on a case-by-case basis, will judge players who cannot attend the evaluation date(s) because of injury or sickness.
  • The Selection Committee approves the final team rosters.

Age/Level Eligibility

A player of 10U and older, may be allowed to play in the age group directly above their actual age, if all of the following 4 conditions are met

  1. At least 15 players are participating in the tryout for the older age group.
  2. The younger player scores within the top 4 players in the older age group's try-out.
  3. The younger player participates in her current age group's try-out.
  4. The player selection committee agrees that moving the player up would be in the best interest of the program.
