If your daughter even slightly thinks she would like to be considered for a pitching and/or catching position, then please make sure to let us know that when you send your RSVP e-mail. Don't forget cleats, bat, glove, fielding facemask, helmet with facemask/guard and chin strap, sun block and LOTS of water/sports drinks!!! There is a concession stand that will be open and selling refreshments. There are also two swimming pools at this location, which only costs $6.50/person for the day with access to both pools (one is the Noah's Ark pool). So go take a dip after tryouts to cool off! We're looking forward to seeing you all, and to a fun day of softball!
The Impact Gold girls softball organization www.impactgold.com is in an elite class of it's own and is steeped in a rich winning pedigree unmatched by most. The Impact Gold routinely produces top tier nationally ranked teams every year – standing apart from other Houston metropolitan area programs. The Impact Gold program provides a pathway for athletes to play at the best schools this country has to offer. Currently players are committed to Texas, LSU, Alabama, UCLA, Texas Tech, and Texas A&M to name a few.
The coaching staff responsible for the winning tradition at the Impact Gold program includes individuals such as Stoney Burke (more than 50 years experience and ASA Houston Commissioner), KC Jackson (former player at Texas Tech), and Christi Connor (former LSU All-American). It is this reservoir of infinite softball knowledge that each Impact Gold program acquires it's practice philosophies, game-time strategies & theories, and basic fundamentals. While other teams are experimenting and trying to “figure it out”, the Impact Gold have a proven recipe for success that is applied to every team. Texas Impact Gold 14U - Elder just won the ASA 14U Girls Class A National Tournament. Similarly, Texas Impact Gold '03 is coming off of a 4th place finish at the 10U USFA National Tournament. The 18U Gold - Burke team just finished 3rd in the Triple Crown Nationals, and 9th at ASA Gold Nationals. They finished 2nd in ASA Gold Nationals in 2012 and have finished in the Top 5 at ASA Gold Nationals each of the previous 3 years.
The chosen athletes that possess the skill, dedication, and character to serve on the 10U Impact Gold Team will experience and have access to the patented success formula within the preverbal vaults of the Impact Gold program. This team is committed to recruiting and retaining players on a regional landscape (i.e. the greater Houston metropolitan area). Other key differentiators include:
- Louisville Slugger and Under Armour sponsorship, merchandise, & equipment discounts
- A coaching staff that has a history of both winning and player development
- 18U mentorship program – create a bigger vision for your 10U player by having them leverage the success and challenges of older athletes in the Impact Gold program. All coaches are available to help organize and run practices, as well as hosting camps/clinics by the older aged girls/teams and coaches.
- Flexible practice schedule and locations
We’re excited to get started this fall with this Impact Gold first year 10U team. Regardless of where you reside, if your daughter has the talent, desire, and is eligible to play 10U, please contact us. We will stress the fundamentals of the game, respect for the game as well as their peers (those on their team as well as their opponents), coaches, officials and parents. We will be laying down groundwork to build a strong foundation. With this foundation in place, the girls will be able to continue their climb through the Impact Gold program for years to come having already learned the Impact Gold way and standard. E-mail us ASAP!
