Copley Indians Travel Softball

Copley Indians Travel Softball is structured as an alternative to our recreational league without reaching the commitment level of the Independent Club Teams. Travel Softball does require a higher level of commitment than our rec teams but is more manageable than the term "Travel" implies. Following are some differences you can anticipate:

  - Winter training - our travel teams begin winter training in January. Team practices occur weekly.
  - Outdoor Practices - when the weather breaks, our travel teams typically practice 2x/week prior to season and 1x per week during season
  - League Games - Number of league games is similar between Rec/Travel. Drive time to away games is longer for travel
  - Competition - level of competition is higher in travel. We compete with other Community based teams in Western Reserve Fastpitch
  - Tournaments - our travel teams participate in weekend tournaments at the discretion of coaches. Anticipate 2-4 tournaments per season
  - Cost - There is a difference in fees due to uniforms, Tournaments and Winter training. But the value far exceeds the cost. 

As stated above, in 2020 our teams will compete in the Western Reserve Fastpitch league. The league requires 80% of the team to be residents of the respective community which allows our teams to compete with similarly structured teams. 

The intent of our travel program is to offer Copley families a higher level of Softball at a reasonable price. The BIGGEST difference between Rec and Travel is COMMITMENT. Players are expected to be at every practice and every game between May-July. Vacations, camps, and other sports should be scheduled around softball commitments during the season. Winter training is important and players are expected to participate. But we also understand (and encourage) participation in other activities/sports. Any questions about the specific level of commitment should be directed to the coach of each team.
