General Information | 2023 - 2024 SEASON


Perrysburg Travel Softball is a division of the Perrysburg Amateur Baseball & Softball Commission.  Perrysburg Travel Softball strives to provide Perrysburg girls the opportunity to play competitive softball in a fun, safe, supportive, and team oriented environment. Our organization's focus is to help the girls develop the skills, confidence, mental discipline, and leadership to achieve each player’s highest potential. We are committed to promoting good sportsmanship for players, coaches, and fans on and off the field. 


Perrysburg offers the following divisions: 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U

Age group is determined by:

  • The players age as of 08/31/2023.

  • Any players wishing to play up to a higher age group must receive approval from the Travel Softball Commissioner and Vice President of Softball.

  • The chart below may be used to help determine what division each player qualifies for: 


Team assignments are determined by skill level and position depth. Each team will play in a league where the levels are either Gold, Silver, or Bronze.  The coach and Softball Travel Commissioner will determine which level each team will play in for each league.  The assigned level may change throughout the year depending on player development and the league competition. Team assignments will be determined for Fall 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024 seasons shortly after tryouts. A player may only receive an invitation for some of the seasons they are trying out for. 


The number of teams per age group will depend on the level of talent in each division. The goal of the teams is to be competitive in the leagues we play in. We will only field as many teams as we determine can be competitive at that level. We also can only field as many teams as what we have coaches for.


Perrysburg Travel Softball strives to offer the most softball experience throughout the year at the lowest possible cost. There will be at least 1 opportunity for each player to fundraise to help offset their cost. Additional fundraising opportunities may be available and would be organized at the individual team level. The 2023/2024 Player Fees are made up of 3 components: Uniform, PABSC General Fee, and Team Fees.  Each cost is estimated below.


    • The uniforms will be the same design as what was worn during the 2022/2023 travel seasons.  If a returning player’s uniform still fits, she will not need to repurchase items that she can use again.  The estimated cost is below for each item the player will need to purchase for the 2023/2024 season. Costs may vary depending on vendor pricing.

      • Socks: $12

      • Jersey Top: $50

      • Pants (New): $50

      • Pants (Used): $30

      • Belt: $6

      • Helmet with mask: $65


    • This mandatory fee will be collected when the player accepts her invitation to play for the travel program. This general fee covers the overhead for the Travel Softball program which includes scheduling, grounds and maintenance, blanket insurance, and software costs. 

    • Each player will pay the same amount, regardless of how many seasons they play.

    • Estimated range per player: $70 - $95


    • The Team Fee Range listed below assumes the player will participate in all 3 seasons.  If the player plays less than all 3 seasons, the actual fees will be less. Any additional amounts above the range stated below must be approved by the Travel Commissioner.  The range for the Team Fee assumes a 12 player roster for all 3 seasons. The Team Fees will be managed by the individual teams.

    • Team fees include: League Fees, League Tournament, Non-League Tournament Fees (up to 2 per year is included in the maximum Team Fee Range), Umpire Fees, Balls, Team Equipment, Scorebooks, Light Indoor Practice Facilities

    • Team Fee Range per player: $225 - $350

  • Our organization believes that each girl should have the opportunity to play competitively regardless of financial issues.  Please email [email protected] if you are unable to afford the fees.


Players are expected to participate in the majority of practices and games each season.  Make every effort to be at every practice, game and tournament both home and away.  You should generally expect two practices a week which your player needs to commit to.  When possible, early communication with coaches on potential schedule conflicts is requested. We made teams a little smaller this year so that there would be more focus on a core group of players.  If one or two of those players are missing, it makes practices/games very difficult. The quantity of games and tournaments will vary between divisions and teams.  The Travel Softball Commissioner and Head Coach will work together to determine the best fit for each team for each season.  Because of the variation, the cost for each team will vary as well. 

Each player will tryout for one of the following options:

  • Fall/Spring/Summer (3 seasons)

  • Fall/Spring (2 seasons)

  • Spring/Summer (2 seasons)

  • Summer Only (1 season)
