2018-2019 Sage and Impact Tryouts - Pre-Registration is REQUIRED

Dates for Open Tryouts for Sage Travel Teams

Updated Saturday August 4, 2018 by Kris Marceca.

The Arlington Sage is a program that operates under the jurisdiction of AGSA and is the competitive, travelt team division of the organization, based in Arlington, VA.

Non-Arlington County residents are permitted to tryout and become members of these teams - they are charged a $20 non-resident fee in addition to the regular AGSA and Sage team fees.

The Arlington Sage will field the following teams for the 2018/19 season and may start new teams at the end of the summer in several age brackets depending on interest.

The Arlington Impact is a new AGSA division of travel teams with the express purpose of preparing softball players to continue their playing career in college.

This is a "pilot" program authorized by the AGSA Board to test the waters and evaluate if a collegiate prep program is viable and sustainable in Arlington.

This is not a program for everyone and the Sage will continue as always as a High School prep program.

The new division will initially consist of 3 teams:

  • Impact 13U- Conner
  • Impact 14U-Kaufman
  • Impact 18U-Bravo

The website for this new program is: http://www.arlingtonimpact.org/

Pre-registration is required for both Sage and Impact - please login at agsafastpitch.com and click on the banner  "AGSA/SAGE Program Registration Now Open" - and login or if you do not have an account with AGSA/Sage, simply create a family account in order to be abel to register. There is no fee for registering to tryout.
