Winfield Youth Softball is made up of three programs: an entry level “recreation” program, Winfield Sting (travel), and Maryland STARS (elite travel).
Registration for recreation softball, for grades k to 8, opens in January. Practices begin mid-March, and the season runs April to June. The Rec Program provides jerseys, softball pants, visors, and socks, but players provide their own equipment: bat, glove, cleats, bat-bag, helmet, etc.
Travel teams, for ages 8 to 18, form in the Fall. Tryouts are held at the end of July or beginning of August. They practice year round and play in tournaments in the Fall and Spring.
Travel teams generally provide jerseys, helmets, and bat-bags. Players are responsible for their own gloves, bats, face-masks, cleats, socks, batting gloves, and softball pants.
