• Trust – Commitment – Love: Philosophy developed by Lou Holtz, Head Coach Notre Dame University
    • TRUST: Trust in your teammate that she will do what is needed on and off the diamond to be successful. Hold each other accountable for their actions. Trust that it is ok to make a mistake and your team wants you to take a risk and do not be afraid to fail.
    • COMMITMENT: Be committed to be the best person you can be on and off the diamond. Winners are built when no one is watching
    • LOVE: Love and support your teammates, coaches, and parents. Without your team / family…you have nothing. Don’t do it for yourself, do it for your team.
  • Communication between coach and player, coach and parent, and player and parent is vital.

Our mission is to develop abilities in our young people that will inspire and empower them to achieve excellence in life through a positive competitive fastpitch experience.
We believe that our sport teaches fundamental life skills that are invaluable beyond the diamond. By molding, teaching, and instructing our athletes, we aim to develop in them the self-discipline, personal responsibility, physical fitness, and personal excellence necessary for success in competitive fastpitch and beyond.
