1. What is the 'Class B' Program?
    "Class B" is an USA Softball designation for a level of play. Recreational Ball (typical League season) being "Class C", it is a more competitive level of play intended for players that are advancing beyond a recreational level. Each League is given the opportunity to put in ONE team per age division.

2. How does my Daughter play "Class B" softball?
    When you sign up your Daughter on the EGGSL website, you can designate your interest in the program there or you can come to tryouts.

3. When are tryouts?
    Tryouts for both the 10U and 14U Teams are December 20th 10AM to 12:30 for 14U and1pm to 3:30pm for 10U. Due to the fact that we are using independent assessors, there will not be any make up/private tryouts available.

4. What does the B Program Cost?
    At this time, it is estimated that each player will need to contribute approximately $400 for the year. This will cover tournament fees and uniform costs, not optional travel costs.

5. Where and when will they play?
    There are 8 tournaments scheduled between March and the end of July plus the possibility of earning a place at the Nationals Tournament in Medford OR. This typically is the last week of July/First week of August. There is also the likelihood of "winter-ball style" inter-league play. At this time, the travel is probably only in our region (Woodland, Davis, Roseville, Rockling, Lincoln, Placer etc..). Any player coming to tryouts must be committed to making all scheduled tournaments and games.

6. Who is Coaching the Class B Teams?
    A five member committee interviewed the candidates for the Coaching Positions. From those interviews, the most qualified candidates were chosen. The 10U Team is Coached by. The 12U Team is Coached by Rocky Johnson; both are veteran League and All Star Coaches.  Majors 14U and 16U coaches are still being assessed.

7. How are the players chosen?
    Tryout assessments will be done by independent Coaches outside of the EGGSL. Tryouts are open to all registered softball players that are eligible to play in the EGGSL. The Top 10 ranked (from assessments) players will be placed on the Team. Teams may have up to 14 players. The additional players will be selected by the Coaching Staff of those Teams from the tryout participants. 

8. What happens if my Daughter does not make the team?
    Trying out does not impact a players ability to assess and play Recreational softball for the upcoming season. Assessments for the Recreational season will be held the following weekend Jan 24th Fields and Times will be announced.
