The LHS Girls Softball program is a CHSAA 5A competitive/try-out Fall sport. The Fall sport season begins in mid-August, sometimes before Jeffco schools are in session. Most of the members play on competitive softball teams outside of LHS. There are three teams – Varsity, Junior Varsity and Level 3.
Team members are selected based on skill, attitude, experience and scholastic eligibility. Team levels are not determined by the athlete’s grade level, and members are required to try-out again, each year. Freshmen may play on Varsity. Athletes are eligible to receive a “letter” in this sport at the varsity level based on the achievement of certain goals and at the head coach’s discretion.
Athletes are expected to attend all practices and games during the season and to keep their grades up, despite the time commitment to the sport. Practice is daily (M-F) after school, and games are on weekday afternoons and many times on Saturday. The regular season ends in early October.
CHSAA rules require schools to run weekly eligibility reports and any athlete with two “F-failing” class grades will be ineligible to play in any games the following week. However, they are still expected to practice. Athletes with an “F-Fail” final grade in one or more classes will encounter eligibility restrictions.
