2018/2019 SEP Softball Club tryout dates.
Due to the City of Altoona's 150th year birthday celebration, tryouts will be held July 29-30 (Sun/Mon) and August 4-5 (Sat/Sun).
Players will need to be available one of those weekends.
Specific tryout times will be available in June.
9th Grade Option to Play for SEP Rams Softball Club
Incoming freshman can sign-up to participate in a modified tournament program to complement the freshman high school team. Sign-ups will take place over the summer at a time consistent with sign-ups for the Rams Softball Club. There will not be try-outs for this team. Any player wishing to play and paying the required fees will be able to participate. Fees will be based on the number of tournaments played, therefore will be less than the fees paid for a full season of Rams Softball Club.
The freshman tournament team will participate in 3-4 tournaments in the fall depending on tournament schedules and the availability of players. Practices may occur in the fall and winter, however tournament training shall not interfere with any SEP HS softball training. Players will participate in the high school spring league in April and high school season in May-July. If opportunities present where additional games are desired, the tournament team might play an additional tournament in the spring and summer. Players and families are required to agree that any player moved up to the varsity squad will not be eligible to continue to participate in the freshman tournament team.

We are excited to announce that with over 130 players that tried out, we were able to place 12 teams for the 2017-2018 season. Your coaches will be reaching out to you directly to discuss fall practice times and potential tournament play. If you should have any questions/concerns, please email:
You will see something new this year; "odd-year" teams, (13U & 11U). With an increasing amount of girls playing softball in central Iowa, and in conjunction with the USSSA director, we are placing teams at these divisions that can be allowed to play teams at both their division and the division up. For example, the 11U Black team can play in 11U tournaments and 12U tournaments, allowing for a more competitive playing experience.
Thank you for your support of the Greater Altoona Girls Softball Association (GAGSA) and the SEP Rams Softball teams!
