• District Softball League Season 2

    Softball season is back for round two!  Last year's inaugural tournament was a success and we are looking to have even more teams involved this year.  

    As a way of better getting to know each other across our campuses and our district as well as beginning a fun and competitive tradition, we will be continuing our WISD-only slow-pitch softball tournament this fall comprised solely of Willis ISD employees. 

    The league will be co-ed, so a minimum of 4 females will be required to play, with a total of 10 players on the field at a time.  Teams can play with a minimum of 8 total (as long as 4 are female), or can also have more than 10 if they would like to sub players in and out.  Our idea is to have at least 1 team to represent each campus, as well as a central office team and teams for all other departments across our district.  If an elementary campus or other department has a hard time fielding a full team, merged teams will be allowed in order to ensure everyone who wants to play will have the opportunity to do so.

    At this point, I am looking for individuals from each campus who would be willing to help put together your campus team and be the go-to for communication about league info, practices, and game schedules.  If you would like to continue with the team you started last year, or are looking to start a new team on a campus that previously did not have one, please contact Chris Slovak at cslovak@willisisd.org to get the ball rolling.

    Thanks for all your help.  Hope to see you on the field!

    Please send an email to Chris Slovak with any questions. cslovak@willisisd.org 

    This year's faculty tournament will be held on October 5th, 6th, and 7th. Friday the 5th is an early release and an away football game, and we have a holiday Monday the 8th. This will allow us to get in at least a few elementary school games Friday evening to hopefully help shorten the day Saturday. Sunday's games will begin around noon again this year.

    The high school softball field will undergo maintenance for the upcoming season the following week, so this is the latest we'll be able to use the field.

    Coaches, if you have not already contacted me, please do so soon so I can begin getting information to you for your team.

    Thanks to all of you who volunteer to help make this happen. I'm looking forward to another great tournament!
