Updated Friday November 10, 2017 by Kris Marceca.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Registration Closed- AGSA Sage 9U OPEN (Tryout) Practice 

When: ( Rain Make up) Sunday, Nov. 12th from 3:00-5:00 at Greenbrier Field #1 (Yorktown High School)

AGSA will be holding an “open” practice this coming Sunday in order to evaluate players interested in attending the winter workout sessions in preparation for the formal team tryout that will occur in the spring.

This practice is also intended to gauge the level of talent at key positions that would be necessary to form a viable travel team roster. The open practice will be limited to players born between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec 31, 2010

Additional Information:

We are following the same method as we did last year for  for the formation of our youngest travel team. The “standing” 9U Head Coach and Staff (Brewe Hanafin and Kristi Kelleher) will conduct the fall open practice( tryout, the winter training sessions and the spring formal tryout.

In the early spring several things will happen:

  1. Tryouts for the new 9U team will occur.
  2. The coaching staff will transition with the “standing” coaching staff turning the team over to a newly selected coaching staff and team manager that would then be responsible for running the team for the foreseeable future.
  3. Offers for joining the new 9U team will be extended to players.

Winter Training:  

Based largely on the open tryout  practice on Sunday the 5th, the coaching staff will extend offers to attend the 10 week long winter training sessions. Due to limited space in our training facility, the number of players selected to attend the winter training will be restricted. It must be strongly emphasized that participation in these winter training sessions will in no way guarantee eventual placement on the new team.

The winter training is held indoors on Sundays in January, February and March at the Swanson Middle School. There will be a cost for each participant in order to cover the operating costs of these sessions. The fee is based on the number of participants and will be in the $150-$200 range. Specific details (i.e. dates, time slots, fee, etc.) are still being worked out and will be available in late November.

“Standing” 9U Coaching staff:

The Standing Head Coach for the Sage 9U team is Coach Bree Hanafin. Bree will be selecting her coaching staff from among the numerous former college players that she employs as instructors through her private enterprise, Hanafin LLC. You can download a complete bio of Bree and many of her instructors on our AGSA website at: https://agsafastpitch.siplay.com/site/ClientSite/article/1420167
