Girls age 10-18 who want to be part of the Beach Park Thunder travel softball program must start the process by trying out for the program beginning on Sunday.

There will be teams formed in the 10-under, 12-under, 13-under, 14-under, 15-under, 16-under and 18-under age groups. This is a competitive, travel program.

Tryout dates are this coming Sunday, and also August 18 (a Sunday), and August 21 (a Wednesday), and all sessions are at Founders Park in Beach Park (south side of Beach Road, just east of Lewis Avenue).

On Sunday and on Aug. 18, players in the 15-, 16- and 18-under age groups can try out from 10 a.m. until noon, and the 10-, 12-, 13- and 14-under players can try out from 1-3 p.m. On August 21, tryouts for all players are from 6-8 p.m.

The key element is that every player must be accompanied to tryouts by a parent/guardian.
