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 at the pre-season information meeting.

Requirements: A meeting is held during the winter to discuss the schedule for pre-season conditioning, then conditioning and open gyms opportunities are offered  in January and February.  Interested players who are academically eligible and have forms on file try out during last week of February or first week of March at our practice facility behind Indian Creek Technology Center.

Meetings and Events: The team plays home games and road games against district opponents at the Shawnee Mission School District Softball Complex at 6101 Maurer Road, in addition to competing in Olathe, Lawrence, and Leavenworth.  Schedule will include doubleheaders with the first game starting at 4:15, plus some single-game nights.  Tuesdays and Thursdays have traditionally been game nights though not exclusively.  After making the program, players will be expected to practice after school daily when there aren’t games.  Practices start at 3:15, almost always at Indian Creek either on the fields or in the gym.
