Description: South will field Varsity and Junior Varsity teams that compete in the Sunflower League, the most competitive league in Kansas, and would develop a C-team of sophomores and freshmen if there is enough interest.
Requirements: A meeting is held during the winter to discuss the schedule for pre-season conditioning throughout the winter conditioning and open gyms opportunities that are offered in January and February. Interested players who are academically eligible and have forms on file (physical, concussion and online forms in Skyward) will be able to try out. Tryouts are the last week of February and/or the first week of March.
Practices and Games: South Softball plays all home games and road games against district opponents at the Shawnee Mission School District Softball Complex at 6101 Maurer Road. We also compete in Olathe, Lawrence, and Gardner Edgerton.
JV plays doubleheaders with the first game starting at 4:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Varsity games are primarily on Tuesdays and Thursdays either Double Headers (4:15) or single games at 5:30. After making the program, players will be expected to practice after school daily when there are not games. Practices start at 3:00pm at the softball field located at Shawnee Mission South High School.
