Select Spring 2023

Select is a program that provides the option for more advanced players to play softball at a more challenging level during the recreational season. Each year, recreational leagues lose players and volunteers (coaches, coordinators, board members, etc.) to travel ball due to a desire to play softball at a more competitive level. USA Softball Select is intended to allow advanced players to play against all-star caliber teams from local leagues within the Los Angeles/South Bay District (and potentially other western region districts as well) to get a higher level of competition while keeping costs low, and without compromising the integrity of the primary recreational league.

This program is in addition to the regular Recreation season, and tryouts are open to all 8U, 10U and 12U a players currently registered for the 2023 Spring season with ESGS. To view the full Select Program Policy, click here.

You only need to attend one Select Try-out but are welcome to attend more than one.Those who make the Select team will also be on “regular” Spring ESGS team. Select activities will not conflict with the other Spring team.What to expect: Players will first be evaluated on infield skills, outfield skills and batting. After this portion is complete, those who would like to be a pitcher and/or catcher will be evaluated. Catchers, please bring your gear.

Please be softball ready for the tryout (glove, bat, softball pants, softball shoes, helmet etc.)
