Sleeves or straps of the uniform top may be adjusted, with or without tie-ups, to the comfort of the players, provided uniform numbers remain visible.

It is not mandatory that all players wear sliding pants, but if more than one player wears them, they must be like in color and style.


SKILLS CONTESTS

Flexx Softball will be evaluating softball players to gather data which will be helpful in their development. Data collected will help us to set a baseline where we can start to create a road map to help each individual reach their goals.

Each player will have their own personal profile in which this data will be stored and accessible to the players and parents.

FLEXX dates and sites will be set prior to the tournament and will rotate around the sites.

Skills that are tested and collected:

  • 60 foot sprint
  • Batted ball exit velocity
  • Arm strength (fielders)
  • Pitching velocity (pitchers)
  • Catcher's pop time (catchers)
