If you haven’t been recruited, you can tryout as a walk-on. The odds against getting a scholarship are very high, unless you’re an exceptional player.
I wasn’t a player, but I umpired college softball, JC, DII, DIII.
Pretty much, you have to be really talented, so work hard!
Also start going to showcases and stuff if they have any for softball, which I’m sure they do!Answer by Tim B
It’s not just about being talented. It’s about also getting yourself exposure. If you are well known, this will greatly increase the chances of getting a scholarship.
You’re young, work on your game. When you get to be in high school, and start getting on varsity etc. then you should also focus on getting into contact with college coaches. Get a film together, expose yourself. Also, creating an online profile helps a ton. It gives you the ability to show a coach anywhere your stats, film, etc. in an instant. Good luck!Answer by ?
Usually if you play on the HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL TEAM college scouts aren’t going to look at you as much as they’ll look at Level A Competitive Fastpitch Softball Players who are on an elite team. If you are an all-star shortsstop than a Level A team would have no problem letting you tryout next season or during the winter season because usually in the winter they release some girls off their team and they’ll be looking for new ones. Hope that helped!!
