Softball Travel Teams
Turn 2 Athletics is an organization that can develop and expose players to advanced opportunities within the game of softball. Travel softball teams attend tournaments where they compete against top programs in the midwest and players get exposure to college scouts, coaches, and recruiters.
Starting at 14U, teams play competitive softball against other talented teams preparing them for their later high school years. As players get up to 16U, and 18U, they play in front of scouts, recruiters, and coaches to help put them into a position to pursue softball at the next level.
An informational meeting about softball travel teams will be held at the Turn 2 Athletics facility on:
July 20th, 2021 @ 6pm
Tryouts for Fall 2021 - Summer 2022
Turn 2 Athletics will plan to field and organize one team at each age level, 14U-18U. Teams will play together for fall ball, winter/dome ball, and summer ball. Rosters will be determined based on tryouts.
August 3 & 5, 2021
14U: August 3 @ 5pm

18U: August 5 @ 7pm

To prepare for the next season, players have the opportunity to participate in our extensive off-season training program. The off-season training program is a 15-week program that runs from November through March consisting of offensive, defensive, and speed & agility training. Players also have the added benefit of full 24-hour facility access from the start of off-season training, through the summer travel season. We believe this is the best path to better performance during the spring/summer baseball seasons.
Saturdays: Speed & Agility with Marshfield Clinic’s Sports Performance Specialist, Darin Kelly
Sundays: Alternates between offensive and defensive training days.
Defensive days: Position specific
Practices will typically occur 1-2 times per week based on the tournament schedule. We believe in getting as much practice time as possible, while also giving players breaks as to not burn them out.
Players will receive four jerseys (one fall, one winter, two summer), a visor, and a helmet with facemask. Other items, such as pants, belt, and socks will be up to the player to purchase. We will also run a gear store where additional items may be purchased.
Hotels are not included in the team costs and are up to the player to reserve. Many tournaments require us to stay at designated hotels to participate.
Team communications will typically take place through email.
