Our goal is to build self-confidence and improve skill while competing at a high level. We will focus on the complete player and person, on and off the field. All of our head coaches will be non parents and have training at the highest level of the game in order to retain our players throughout our program. Our mission is to teach our players the game of softball while still having fun! Our teams will play in Fall and Summer tournaments and all of our Winter training will be based at the state of the art facility, Sluggers Academy in Medfield, MA. The number of tournaments, practices and training varies depending on age level and Coach preference.
