MN Xtreme Teams
MN Xtreme teams are made up of competitive athletes who strive both on and off the field to continually improve their softball knowledge and skills. For the 2019-2020 season we anticipate fielding 1-2 teams at the 14s level and 1-2 teams at the 16s level. We are excited about our coaching resources for the 2019-2020 season and will supplement our teams with hitting instruction, pitching specialists as well as volunteers and team managers.
Home Fields/Practice Locations
Fall, winter and summer practices are held in the Rogers and Otsego areas. Home fields are at Rogers High School.
Cost & Fundraising
Anticipated cost to play on an Xtreme team from August 2019-July 2020 = $1,600. We do our best to keep costs as low as possible with the expectation that each player and team will need to fundraise to cover all of the expenses for their team. Fundraising is necessary to run the team for the year and to keep the player costs to a minimum. Each team will determine their own fundraising options. Team expenses cover 2-3 fall tournaments, fall and summer uniforms, winter training, 1-2 winter tournaments, 4-6 summer tournaments (expect at least 2 tournaments out of state with one of them being a longer tournament mid to end of July), paid coaches, dome and other practice facility/field rental fees, other costs TBD. (Pitchers pay separate for additional pitching instruction outside of team instruction.)
