Rockford Krush is dedicated to providing young ladies the opportunity to play competitive fastpitch softball. Our organization strives to teach and challenge, so they can develop into well-rounded players and respectful people.

Practices begin in the fall. Outdoor practices typically are at East Rockford Middle School or other area fields. Winter training is held in a Rockford area facility. 


Tryouts are open to all softball players in Michigan. Players may attend one or both dates. Attending both will give coaches the best chance to assess their skills. Each team will carry a maximum of 12 players and will play in 7-8 tournaments throughout the season.

Age group eligibility is determined by a player's age as of December 31, 2022
