Velocity softball plans tryouts

NORTH PROVIDENCE - During the past few years, the North Providence Fastpitch Softball League has developed the Velocity Travel Division for 8-U, 10-U, and 12-U players and is now looking to expand travel teams to include a 14-U team in 2014.

The Velocity program has won several tournaments over the past few years and plans to continue that string of success in 2014. These teams compete at the highest levels in state and regional competition.

Velocity teams participate in spring, summer and fall leagues in addition to playing in several tournaments. It also offers a winter training program.

Travel team players are required to play in the North Providence Girls Fastpitch Softball League during the recreational season.

Velocity has scheduled tryouts for the travel program on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Olney Field. Tryouts will be at 11 a.m. for the 10-U program; 12:30 p.m. for the 12-U program and at 2 p.m. for the new 14-U program.

Anyone interested in trying out may contact Kevin at door49@verizon.net for more details. Tryouts are open to players from all communities. Individuals interested in coaching the 14-U team are also welcome.
