2017 Softball Initial Team Assignments
Tryouts were completed on Monday, August 14th. We are pleased to announce that there will be NO cuts for the 2017 Softball Season. All players that tried out have made a team! We will again field 3 levels of teams in 2017 (Varsity, Junior Varsity, and C-Team). At our Parents & Players Meeting on Wednesday (tomorrow evening after practice and Team Dinner - for the players), we will discuss the objectives for each team.
The listing for the initial team assignments is attached below. Through the season, players could potentially move up or down from their initial assignment based on the coaches ongoing evaluation of the player's development and the needs of the program.
Schedule for Tuesday, August 15th:
2:45 - 3:45 Pitchers and Catchers for All Levels of teams Norse Field
3:45 - 6:00 ALL Position Players for All Levels of teams Norse Field
Congratulations Ladies!! The coaches are looking forward to very successful seasons for all 3 levels of our teams.

Fuzzy's Taco Shop Fundraiser and Team Builder - Tuesday, August 29th
Fuzzy's Taco Shop - Save the Date for Tuesday, August 29th 5:30 - 7:30 PM.
We are a little less than 1 month away from our Fuzzy's Taco Shop Fundraiser. Please begin to invite family, friends, and other Lady Norse Fans to block their calendars so that they can join us to help support the team. Our fundraiser is mostly about selling brownie sundaes on-site, but we also keep any tips/donations we can get from the night, so the more fans we can get there, the more tips the ladies can expect to earn for equipment for the team. I have written a short message that you can Email, Tweet, Facebook, or post on any other social media format that I don't even know about! I also am attaching 2 logos, and our Norse logo which you can use to attach to any messages you send out. Players will need to arrive at 5:00 to prepare for our guests who can arrive at 5:30.
.......sample message you can copy........................................................................
Please block your calendar on Tuesday, August 29 for dinner from 5:30 - 7:30 pm, at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop at 10280 Washington St, in Thornton.
My Northglenn High School softball team will be hosting a fundraiser event at Fuzzy’s. The way we will raise funds is by selling Brownie Sundaes for $5 - CASH/CHECK only, with all profits coming back to our team. In addition, my Norse teammates will greet guests at the door and bus tables (tips are accepted!!). The money we raise will help us buy new equipment such as balls, bats, and uniforms.
As a bonus, tacos every Tuesday at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop are discounted to $1.59 so you can eat dinner for a reasonable price, then have a Brownie for dessert!
I will send another reminder about the evening closer to August 29th, but I hope you will be able to join us.

Field Pride Day
Saturday, August 12th was the 7th Annual Field Pride Day at Norse Softball Field. Forty Players, Parents, and Lady Norse Supporters joined together to spruce up the Softball Field and Norse Park. Special thanks goes out to ACE Hardware on 104th and Federal and Lowe's in the Northglenn Marketplace for donating paint and painting supplies. This allowed us to repaint all of the dugouts and sheds at the field. Other work included painting the backstop, edging the infield/outfield border, mowing the grass, cleaning under the bleachers, hanging the windscreen, hanging our banners, cleaning under the bleachers and around the park, and cleaning out the dugouts.
Great Job Ladies! The field is ready for the season and looks Awesome!!
We can take pride in the work we completed and in knowing our home field is a place to be proud of.
Need an inexpensive dinner idea at home?? More Old Chicago Pizza Cards NOW available - Coach MOLLY has the Cards if anyone needs them. Bring your money when you pick them up.
Please begin asking family and friends if they would like to purchase Old Chicago Pizza Palz cards. Bring $11 to any practice and Coach Pat will exchange for Old Chicago Pizza Palz cards. Here is how it works:
Customer gives you $11.00
Customer receives 1 Pizza Palz card
Customer redeems Pizza Palz card at ANY Old Chicago restaurant for 1 Large Pizza (Up to $25 Value, which is Any pizza)
The Bottom Line - the Customer gets a pizza for less than half price (no other purchase required). AND, the Lady Norse Softball Team earns money in the process!!
Cards are available . Ask Coach Molly or Coach Pat!
You can also email Coach Pat in advance to let him know if you need cards: email@example.com

The Lady NORSE made it to the Championship Game, but finished in SECOND Place at the TJ Mile High Invitational Tournament. After posting wins over Kennedy (6-0) and Monarch (9-4) in the first two rounds, the Norse had one tough inning in the Championship Game and ended up losing to host Thomas Jefferson 1-11. Great job ladies - this is the NORSE'S best finish in this annual tournament in the past 3 years!
