Details for the 2020-2021 12U Dunlap Eagles competitive softball teams have been announced!
We plan to form two teams next season with Jeff Morris and Kevin Wise as the head coaches. Coach Morris played baseball collegiately at NCAA Div II Missouri S&T, and he returns for his second year as a 12U head coach and his 5th year overall in the DGSA program. We are happy to welcome Coach Wise to DGSA, but he is no stranger to softball in the Heart of Illinois region boasting 30+ years of experience coaching softball in this region. Coach Wise was named in late 2019 as the new Dunlap HS Varsity Head Coach.
12U tryouts will be held the evenings of Wednesday, July 1 and Thursday, July 2 at Dunlap Valley Middle School from 5:00-8:00pm (pitchers & catchers should plan to stay the full time, position players may be dismissed slightly earlier). While it's not required to attend both nights, it would improve the opportunity for the evaluators to see the players on both nights if possible. Please complete the pre-registration form on the DGSA home page. We would like to pre-register as many as we can and minimize walkups to help our planning as well as being a COVID-19 precaution, but there will be a table for walkup registrations just in case.
In this unusual season, we know area teams are still playing games as part of their 2019-2020 schedules. If these dates conflict with your current team or family schedule but have interest in the program, we can arrange a date for a private tryout. We would like to hear from anyone with interest. If you have questions about the tryout or the upcoming season, please contact us.
