Fusion & COVID-19

In order to get girls back on the fields safely, the Fusion Board:

  1. Finalized our plan with the City of Apple Valley, EVAA and VAA. This plan has now been approved. Please review it thoroughly (Softball-specific details start on Page 13).
  2. Trained our coaches and informed our parents on the guidelines for softball this season. The slides from those discussions are now available here.

You, as parents, should review the guidance from the State of Minnesota:

  1. Minnesota’s Stay Safe Plan (we are included under Organized Youth Sports)
  2. Minnesota’s Guidance for Social Distancing in Youth Sports
  3. Minnesota’s Back to the Diamond Proposal (please note, this is NOT approved, but is a draft at this point. It will give you an idea of how our state sports organizations are thinking about the 2020 seasons).
  4. Minnesota Softball COVID-19 Guidelines/Resources Page (lots of links, but also a “Season Options” section and proposed field layout for fastpitch softball)

We all know the COVID-19 pandemic changes daily. If we need to change our approach or pause programming due to state guidance, we will communicate quickly and clearly.

Fastpitch Softball Programs

Traveling Fastpitch Softball (link) serves girls from age 8-16. Traveling Softball includes league games and practices on weeknights and tournaments on weekends. The Summer season runs from April through July.  Traveling program involves competition against the better players in the South Metro and beyond. Teams are formed on the basis of tryouts and girls are grouped based upon their age as of January 1 of the current year.

Traveling Fastpitch levels: 10U (10 and under), 12U (11-12 years old), 14U (13-14 years old) and 16U (15-16 years old).

League-only (LO) Traveling Softball (link) serves girls age 8-10 with a summer season running from May through July. League-only differs from full Traveling Softball in that LO teams generally don't participate in weekend tournaments so the time commitment is moderate. At 10U, girls do the pitching, and LO involves competition generally one tier lower than full Traveling. At 8U, a pitching machine is used in place of coach-pitch or girl-pitch. Girls must be 8-10 years old as of January 1st of the current year. Teams are formed based on interest level - no tryouts are required. If a player tries out for the full Traveling program but does not make a team she will be placed on a LO Traveling team.

League Only Traveling levels: 8U (7-8 years old) and 10U (9-10 years old).

K-1 Coach Pitch Softball (link) serves girls age 6-7 (Kindergarten through 1st grade) with a summer season running from late April through June. Teams generally play two games per week. At the youngest ages, coaches pitch. The In-house program is focused on both fun and skill development. Girls play at their current grade level as of the start of the season. Teams are formed, when possible, by placing girls with other players from their school or neighborhood.
