Hall of Fame coach Ralph Raymond, the Head Coach of the 1996 & 2000 Gold Medal winning USA Olympic teams, and Manager for 27 years of the record setting Raybestos Brakettes (including leading them to 18 National championships & 9 runner-up finishes), has formed a new 18U Gold level team, the Worcester Hawks, to compete in major college showcases and national tournaments.
Coach Raymond is currently seeking a couple of players to complete his roster, especially a pitcher and an outfielder. Coach is looking for talented players who are able to fully commit to the team, and who are also willing to work on their own between practices.
Players between 14-18 years old will be considered.
Why play for this team?
We are not about the money.
Perks and connections. Do you want to play at the top level? How is this for an example:
All girls who play for this team receive an all expense paid trip to the 2nd Annual World Class Softball Clinic on Martha's Vineyard in August. Participants receive all transportation, meals, lodging and two full days of instruction by Coach Raymond, several major college coaches, and Coach Ken Eriksen, the newly named head coach of 2011 & 2012 Team USA softball. This exclusive clinic is only open to members and invited guests of the Hawks.
College - interested in a college? Ask the college coach if you should play for Coach Raymond if you have the chance. Ask if his recommendation might mean anything.
Are you a travel team coach with a dominant player at 14U or 16U? Why not refer her to tryout for Coach Raymond? It's all about the girls, right?
