Oxford Chargers Fast Pitch Softball Tryouts for 2014-15 Season Planned

On Monday, October 27 at 5 p.m. the Oxford Chargers fast pitch softball team will host tryouts for the 2014-2015 season on the high school softball field, which overlooks the artificial turf football field behind Oxford Middle School.
Team tryouts are for both junior varsity and varsity teams and open to middle and high school girls in eighth through 12th grades. Registration for tryouts will be held on tryout day— Monday, October 27—from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the high school softball field. While there is no cost for trying out, those trying out must register beforehand.
“We have one team that plays both the varsity and junior varsity schedule because I am big on team unity and identity, and also because I want all the girls to gain experience,” said Coach Steve Blackmon, head fast pitch softball coach for the Lady Chargers.
During team tryouts, coaches will observe the various facets of the sport: hitting, fielding, throwing mechanics and arm strength, running speed and overall athleticism. Those interested in trying out will need to bring their own softball equipment: gloves, bats, cleats, and batting gloves. Catcher’s equipment, balls and limited bats will be available from Oxford
High School during the tryouts. There is no cost to try out.
