ANNOUNCING! Offseason Domeball!!

Eden Prairie Fastpitch has completed arrangements to participate in a startup domeball league that will play softball games inside the Braemar Field Dome in Edina. Softball doesn't have to end after Fall Ball! Many softball players throughout the metro area continue to train through the offseason with the intent on keeping their current skills sharp, or to improve on skills they need. Our goal is to provide this kind of offseason opportunity for EP Fastpitch 10U and 12U players. We intend to form only one 10U and one 12U domeball team.

EP Fastpitch Offseason Domeball will comprise of:

  • Practices, once-weekly (OCT - JAN)
  • Domeball season, double-header games (8 SATs, NOV - JAN)
  • 1 domeball tournament (Turkey Trot, weekend of Thanksgiving)
  • Player shirt
  • Upfront Registration Cost: $100
    • ​Final cost NOT to exceed $275, but will vary based on the number of participating players

Just like in the summer and fall seasons:

  • Registration, team rosters and scheduling will be managed on the epfastpitch.com website.
  • Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches will be parent volunteers.
  • We will order shirts for players. 

The entire domeball season will account for a lot of offseason skill development :

  • approx. 45 hrs of skill development in practices and pre-game warmups
  • approx. 19 hrs game experience
Practices - 2 hrs, locations/days vary
