Twisters/6U Division (Ages 5-6)
- Players will begin to learn the fundamentals playing softball including mechanics related to throwing, hitting and fielding.  We will also begin playing t-ball games in this division.

Freshman/8U Division (Ages 7-8)
- Players will continue to learn softball fundamentals and will play "coach-pitched games" in non-competitive format.  We will also begin to allow players to pitch during the season.  All Freshman players will be eligible to tryout for our All-Star Hurricane program that plays 3 tournaments after completion of rec season.

Sophomore/10U Division (Ages 9-10)
- This is HGSL's 1st competitive division, but the focus will continue to remain on development of new and experienced players.  Games will be 100% kid pitched and will utilize game rules with a few modifications.  All Sophomore players will be eligible to tryout for our All-Star Hurricane program that plays 3 tournaments after completion of rec season.

Junior/12U Division (Ages 11-12)
- This division continues to balance competitive softball with player development.  Traditional game rules will apply with minimal modifications.  All Junior players will be eligible to tryout for our All-Star Hurricane program that plays 3 tournaments after completion of rec season.

Senior/17U Division (Ages 13-17)
- This division is our most competitive, but still incorporates player development.  Very few rule modifications.  Senior players age 13 and 14 will be eligible to tryout for our All-Star Hurricane program that plays 3 tournaments after completion of rec season.

NJ Heat Tryouts

The Heat organization is 19 years strong, having been founded in 1996. We field competitive teams that play a combination of USSSA, PONY and PGF National Qualifiers in addition to ASA tournaments throughout the season. As part of a non-profit organization, all revenue generated by the teams goes directly to the teams to pay for tournaments, equipment and indoor training. We understand there are many options for players today. NJ Heat teams have traditionally provided the best value by playing in more tournaments and providing equal training opportunities while allowing parents budget flexibility to continue individual lessons so their daughters can continue to develop outside the team if they choose to. 

Please email
heat@howellgirlssoftball.com if you have any questions.

All tryouts will be at Soldier Memorial Park, Howell, NJ

Please email team coach directly to see if there are openings on the team.
