Tryout Information

The Chicago Mudcats typically hold public tryouts once a year at the end of the previous season (July - August). There are however instances where we may have spots available and will schedule private tryouts. We post both public and private tryout information on this page and our social media pages (facebook & instagram), as well on informational websites such as firstchoicesoftball.com, baseballconnected.com, infosports.com, and on the facebook page for Illinois Girls’ Fastpitch Softball.

Tryouts our staffed by General Manager of Softball Chris Thompson and our professional coaching team.

Tryouts include, but are not limited to assessment of the following:
