There are many benefits playing for the 18u "A" Bombers Fastpitch Travel Program:
There is "no cost" to play for the program. Coach Pacyga is a Certified Public Accountant and his only concern is helping the girls, which is why I finance the program. It can be argued that the Bombers are, technically, one of the only programs in the country, that truly does this only for the players.
We have a very nice list of players that have gone on to play college softball. Our 2014 grads are all playing college softball this fall. Please check the link www.bombersfastpitch.org
For the Fall of 2014, we are participating in the following events:
USA Preps Event in Indianapolis, 8/30 - 9/1
ASA USA Hall of Fame Qualifier Joliet, 9/12 - 9/14
Mizuno Hawks College Showcase Joliet, 10/3 - 10/5
Betcher College Showcase St Charles, 10/11 - 10/12
Midland Magic College Showcase Springfield, 10/18 - 10/19
17th Annual St Louis College Showcase, 10/24 - 10/26
Our outdoor practice fields are located in Woodridge and our offseason indoor facility in located in Mokena. In the Fall, we will practice weekends unless we are playing games. Once the Fall Season is complete, we will break for 5 weeks and then restart in December. We will also practice weekends in the offseason.
The Bombers Fastpitch play a top level, competitive schedule, that help these ladies be seen by the colleges they are looking at. The Fall Season is geared towards College Exposure and therefore will require additional travel when compared to our summer season. For example, this summer season we have 3 overnight events, out of a total of 8 events.
The Bombers program covers just about everything (uniforms, equipment, insurance, tourney fees, field fees, indoor facility fees and all other costs). The parents are responsible for transportation, meals and hotels.
We do ask for a small refundable deposit when joining the program. As long as the player fulfills her commitment and also participates in Nationals, the deposit will be returned.
The only time a fee will be charged by the Bombers is if you leave the program before Nationals. In addition, the deposit will also be surrendered as mentioned above.
We take fastpitch softball seriously becasue the players take it seriously.
