FALL NOVA TRYOUTS! 8U, 10U & 12U Fall Nova '23 tryouts on Sunday 8/20 at Stevenson AG Field!!!!! Register HERE! 


Nova is the travel ball program for Mountain View Los Altos Girls' Softball. Nova offers girls who are very interested in developing their game further a chance to practice and play at a higher level, along with other girls who are similarly invested. It is a challenging but rewarding experience. It is expected that every player will attend a minimum of 80% of all practices and 80% of tournament days.

This fall, MVLAGS is aiming to support Fall Nova travel ball with teams at the 8U, 10U, and 12U levels. We will be holding evaluations on Sunday, Aug 20st, likely starting at 9am at Stevenson (American Girl Field).

  • 8U - Sign in at 8:45am + Evaluations 9-10am

  • 10U - Sign in at 9:30am + Evaluations 10-11:30am

  • 12U - Sign in at 11am + Evaluations 11:30-1pm

  • Note: PLEASE try to make the Sunday evaluation, but if you cannot, we will offer a makeup on Tues, 8/22 at 6:30pm at Callahan Field (sign-in at 6:15pm)

 

Please register your player for the fall ball evaluation here. Please sign up soon! Fall ball programs have a “lighter” schedule than summer Nova, meaning our Fall teams typically practice only 1x / week plus a weekend game/practice (typically Sundays).The Fall season starts in early September and ends in mid November. If needed, we’ll be in touch about a makeup evaluation date.

 

For those asking about Rec Ball, as of now, MVLAGS is unfortunately not planning to offer Rec Ball this Fall. This is due to a variety of factors including lack of available fields due to soccer priority, significant volunteer effort required to run our Spring Rec program, and limited # of willing parent coaches (avoiding burnout). If you are interested in helping make Fall rec a reality though, please consider joining our BOD!

 

New USA Softball Age Divisions starting Fall '23 - A bit confusing…...

Starting Fall 2023 (and continuing through Spring ‘24 and beyond), USA Softball has changed how age divisions will work. They shifted the age division cut-off from Jan 1st back to Sept 1st, which means some players may now be eligible to “stay down” to a younger age division if so desired. MVLAGS has always had a firm no “playing up” policy, but its doesn’t seem fair to require players who have Sept - Dec birthdays to stay down when many of their friends and previous “year” players move up. As such a recent Board meeting, it was approved to allow players to move with their current age year and friends if so desired. This is a little complicated and definitely creates some headaches for our league management, but we’ll figure it out. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Katie, Javier, or myself.

 

Below shows now default USA Softball age divisions:

  • 8U - Sept ‘14 - Aug ‘16 birthdays

  • 10U - Sept ‘12 - Aug ‘14 birthdays

  • 12U - Sept ‘10 - Aug ‘12 birthdays

E.g. A player with Sept 15th birthday who was an “older 10U” in ‘22-’23 has the option to stay down to play a 3rd year of 10U OR move to become a “younger 12U” starting this Fall
