The Knoxville Explosion Fast Pitch Softball Organization will hold open tryouts for its Fall 2013/Spring 2014 10u (’03 and ’04) softball teams on Saturday, August 3 at Fountain City Park Field #5. The address is 3701 Ludo Lane in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Trusting your daughter’s softball development is an important decision. We take that decision very seriously and strive to help develop every facet of the players skill set: batting, throwing, fielding, base running, sliding, pitching, catching, etc. So why the Knoxville Explosion? The answer is simple, because we care. Unlike many other teams, we are not about the almighty win; we are about the development of your player. Our job is not to win every game played, our job is to teach players how to the play the game, the rules of the game, how to conduct themselves on and off of the field and how to respond to adversity in an adult manner. Losing is just as much a part of the game as winning, everyone loses period. We are as competitive as the next team and want to win but winning doesn’t define who we are. The product on and off of the field is what matters. Our organizational goal is to develop the players and ready them for high school and hopefully college. We teach high level concepts that will not enable our players to make their high school team rosters but contribute to their teams and play at the earliest possible opportunity.
How do we do this? We use state of the art training equipment, coupled with outside professional instruction, the latest in technology and quality, respectable, upstanding coaches who honestly care not just about your players skills but your player as a person. In 2011, the Knoxville Explosion had a banner year with 12u and 10u teams. In 2012, we are expanding our organization to add 8u and 14u fast pitch teams.
So what do we offer? We offer a drama-free, family environment where the players do one thing, play. No politics, drama, fighting and the hundred other things that go on and around competitive softball teams. Our coaches volunteer 100% of their time to the players and are fully dedicated to their development. We offer everything you would expect in a high level travel team with custom uniforms, quality tournament play, custom player equipment, access to their very own website space at our professionally-developed and maintained website at http://knoxvilleexplosion.com, competitive schedules and most importantly, fun!
