Travel league softball is very competitive. The Firestorm program places strong emphasis on the player’s development and not our win-loss record. We expect the players to have the right attitude, put in their maximum effort, and be willing to learn at all times in preparation to compete at high levels.
It is important to remember that the process involves developing strong fundamental skills. As players work to advance the overall performance and competitiveness that will get them to perform at higher levels, parents can encourage hard work and dedication.
Emphasis for each level:
1 - Skills development
2 - Basic fundamental enhancement
3 - Competitiveness
12U & 14U
1 - Continued skills development
2 - Competitiveness
3 - Fundamental enhancement and reinforcement
4- College Recruiting Process introduction and preparation.
5- Skills camps
16U & 18U
1- Advance play (College Camps and Showcase Tournaments)
2- College Recruiting Process Assistance
We highly encourage all parents to become involved. It is very helpful if parents reinforce the message of commitment, good sportsmanship, and team unity.
At this level of play, everyone must contribute for us to be successful. We promote attendance at all tournaments by family members, but discourage you to coach from the stands. Full parental involvement in the club will only contribute to our success and we ask that you trust coaches as they do their best to prepare your daughter in this level of play.
