    Tryout Schedule

    Monday August 6th 6:00pm – 8:00pm

    Wednesday August 8th 6:00pm – 8:00pm

    Grove City High School Varsity Field

    4665 Hoover Road, Grove City, OH 43123

    A little about our team;

    Our Racers program was new in 2018, and we have all recently (within the last few days) merged with the Cap City Force Organization to create a Cap City Force presence in the greater Grove City area! We are looking for players that are primarily not attending GCHS this fall.

    We are a team that focuses on player position development, confidence, and working with players to be become the best version of themselves!

    Our 14U GC based team has a core group that is cohesive and we are looking to add to that core group. We currently have plans to play the 2019 season focusing on league play on weekdays in and around central Ohio, and taking part in about five B-C Tournaments within the greater central Ohio area.

    A few that have reached out have asked some specific questions so I wanted to post some of the information here;

    1. Currently, we plan to play all of our home league games at Grove City high School on the Varsity field in 2019

    2. Our Cap City Force 501c3 is 100% invested into the players and team; we have complete financial transparency and there will be $0.00 let in the account at the end of the season (Coaches are volunteers, but have years of coaching Travel experience)

    3. We are looking for a pitchers! We always prefer a #1 but we honestly are looking for a player that is willing to be developed and can go 3 - 4 innings (or more) at a time. That pitcher will definitely play defense as well

    4. We will only carry 12 players maximum (prefer 11); playing/ pitching time will not be an issue

    5. This team has already developed into a cohesive group; no "daddy" ball, we have great parents and volunteers, and we are incorporated (with a Board that is very supportive)

    6. Average cost is $650 - $700. We will base that on the team in the fall and decide how many tournaments and if we play in a weekly league or not. We also play in an indoor league over the winter.

    7. Our travel is light; we stick to central Ohio for league play and all tournaments are an hour or less drive, except for one. We try to have one overnight trip for the players to get together and have some fun at dinner and at the hotel; team bonding time.

    8. We will have 5-6 spots to fill this season; still looking for primarily pitchers and catchers, but also solid middle-infielders and outfield

    9. We met our 2018 goals of building player confidence and working to advance the softball knowledge of our team; we work to make our players successful at the next level!

    10. By the end of the 2018 season, our players not only knew how to ENCOURAGE each other, but actively demonstrated that encouragement especially when the game was not going our way

    11. We will continue to work for our players so that obstacles are removed from their path to become the best version of themselves. Our coaches adhere to a practice and game philosophy of Attitude, Effort and Focus for the players and for themselves!

    Monday try-outs went very well last night from a turnout perspective!

    If you missed them we are hosting another session on Wednesday at the same time and location. We didn't get to the pitchers and catchers like we had hoped (pitching machine was giving me fits, lol) so we will see those players again on Wednesday. If you did attend on Monday, and you fell as if you could have performed better, then please feel free to join us again on Wednesday night! We also plan on doing a few additional defensive drills on the 2nd round of try-outs.

    We will make our selections and start making phone calls this Thursday to solidify our roster. We have a strong and energetic core of players that are looking forward to welcoming the next group of players!

    We all appreciate the players that came out on Monday as it was hot and muggy; they all did a great job in the two hours they were on the field! Thank you very much for making it a success!

    We will see all of you pitchers and catchers tonight as we ran short on time Monday, and all of you that are new and could not be with us on Monday; same time and location!

    For all of you that were there on Monday, and would like another shot at improving your base time, or defensive skillz numbers, or run through some additional defensive drills, feel free to join us; you will not need to run through the entire try-out again if you do not wish to, just the sections that you would like to improve in.

    This will be our final try-out for the 14U Ringhiser team!!!
