About the Team
The NMU Club Softball team has been established since fall 2016, and continues to grow every year. The governing body is National Club Softball Association (NCSA), and our team competes in the Great Lakes West Conference. Teams we play against include Michigan Tech, UW-Whitewater, UW-Madison and Marquette University. This is a split-semester sport, meaning we play in both the fall and winter semesters. A majority of our games are played in the fall due to the weather at the end of winter semester.
Dues: $300 per player. This includes travel, lodging, umpires, field time, annual NCSA team dues, and the use of a team uniform that is to be returned at the end of season (includes two jerseys, pants, belt and socks).
Tryouts: Typically held the first Saturday after classes start. A glove and cleats are required for tryouts, but you're more than welcome to bring any other equipment you see fit.
Practices: We usually practice 2-3 times per week in the evening, but this could change depending on team member's schedules. If practices need to be missed for school or work purposes, you will NOT be penalized. We completely understand the importance of making it to class and being prepared for exams as well as making money to live while in school.
Field Location: Lion's Field on Cherry Street, Marquette Township
