About Blaze

Blaze is the AGSA competitive tournament softball program.  Teams are selected through tryouts by the managers for the 8U, 10U and 12U age divisions.  The Alameda Blaze tournament teams provide opportunities for more competitive play for girls in these divisions during the spring, summer and fall seasons.  Girls must tryout and be selected by the coaches.  Rules, such as minimum playing time, free substitution and continuous batting, are not used.  Fees for the program can range from $500-$700 per season depending on the number of players, tournament schedule and uniforms.

Interested girls should look for information about team tryouts -- watch for announcements on the AGSA home page and Facebook for tryout dates. 

Questions on the Blaze program?  Contact Sharon Perkins, Blaze Director at sperkins@alamedagsa.com.

More About Travel Softball

Traveling softball is known to have a higher level of competitiveness than recreational softball. A lot of players considering to make the jump to traveling ball should be made aware of the following:

  • Traveling ball is significantly more expensive than recreational. It can incur costs from higher level coaching, more practice time, and travel expenses.
  • There is no guarantee of playing time. The best players play.
  • There is an increased chance for high-level development. 
  • You will be required to try out and will be placed on a team according to ability.
  • Rules are generally more closely related to high school or college softball.
