Dublin Select Softball - Program Information

Dublin Select Softball

Dublin Select Softball is dedicated to advancing the skills, knowledge and confidence of softball players in the Dublin community. Our program focuses on the fundamental, physical, and mental skills needed to escalate the girls to the next level of competitive fast pitch softball. The majority of the young athletes that play on the softball diamonds and walk the halls at Dublin Coffman, Dublin Jerome and Dublin Scioto high schools have gone through the Dublin Select Softball Program and many more have gone on to play at the college level.

We are not your ordinary Travel softball program. Dublin Select Softball also provides your daughters an opportunity to not only advance their softball skills to the next level, but a chance for community outreach and give back to their community.

Player Selection & Commitment:
Players are selected to participate in the Dublin Select Softball program through an evaluation and selection process. Girls who are selected to participate in the Dublin Select Softball program must be willing to make a substantial commitment of time to the team. Attendance at practices, games, and functions is expected.


Roster sizes are designed to maximize playing time and will typically be limited to 11 players (a 12th player may be considered depending on the age group). Commitment from players is essential in developing teams and ensuring that roster sizes at these levels can be maintained. Routine absences and lack of commitment impact the development of the entire team. Girls that are routinely missing practices and/or games may have playing times reduced, and placement on future teams may be adjusted accordingly.

Fees: There is a registration fee of $10 to try out for the 2023-2024 season. Once the player has made a team, there is a playing fee of $500 paid in two installments during the summer and fall months. After players have made teams, parents will need to pay the $200 commitment fee immediately. The remaining $300 fee will be paid in the fall.

The Dublin Select Softball fee is designed to cover ordinary team expenses during the season (equipment, uniforms, indoor practice facility rental, field rental, league fees, tournament fees, umpires, etc.)

Uniforms will be provided to each player that is new to the program and returning players that did not receive new uniforms for the 2023 season, or they will be available for purchase.

Practice/Game Information: Practice and game schedules vary depending on each individual team; however, they do follow along the same guidelines. League play typically begins during the last week of May and continues through the middle of July. Teams will choose to play in tournaments in addition to league play. Each team will choose their own tournaments based on the location and the skill competition level desired by each team.

U10, U12, and U14 teams play a combination of league play, two nights per week (Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays), and some tournaments, depending upon the team’s competitive level. Teams may also elect to play one night per week in league and play in more tournaments. U16 play one league night per week.

Most practices and home games are held at Darree Fields diamonds #16 & #17.

Teams typically hold practices throughout the winter and spring. The number of practice sessions will increase during the spring and prior to the season. Select teams with players playing on middle school or high school teams will hold practice sessions throughout the winter until tryouts begin for school ball and will resume once released from their school teams. Dublin Select Softball does not interfere with middle school and high school softball.
