Hampton Roads Rage Elite Fastpitch Association is beginning it's inaugural season in the Tidewater area starting August 2012. We look forward to bringing a whole new level and atmosphere to girls travel fastpitch softball.
The Rage will field highly competitive 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U teams based on the same concept that was instrumental in making our former program a huge success in the Midwest. We will select only those young ladies that are serious about education, community outreach, and showing a high level of competitiveness and sportsmanship. We had one of our own win Gatorade Player of the Year in 2007.
Our teams will be selected through recruitment and either group or individual tryouts. Our coaching staffs will be selected based on recommendations, previous experience, thorough background checks, and their commitment to excellence and education.
We will develop networks with collegiate coaching staffs throughout the country and also play a number of showcase tournaments for our ladies to be given every opportunity to display their talents as they approach their college years and scholarships become possibilities. Our Midwest program was instrumental in assisting 20 of our young ladies to receive scholarships at Division I, II, and III levels.
Our program will operate based on player fees, sponsorships, and very little fund raising. With the economy in its current state, gas prices at all time highs, and families needing to watch expenses, it is our goal to keep player registration fees at a budget friendly level as well as offering payment options. We will also offer discounts for families that have multiple young ladies playing in the organization.
We will be scheduling our inaugural tryout in the coming weeks so please watch our site (www.eteamz.com/hrrage) for updated news. If you have any questions about our program or scheduling a private tryout, please contact Gary at 757-803-8677.
