The Nashville Nighthawks99 will be hosting it's tryouts on August 2nd 2014 at Goodpasture Christian School in Madison Tennessee from 10am to 6pm.
Nashville Nighthawks is the oldest youth fast pitch travel team organization in Tennessee.They have a rich history in building quality teams in middle Tennessee, getting player recruited and having top finisher in Colorado Fireworks Showcase; ASA, NSA National Tournaments in all age groups.
Our objective is to use our years of experience to train and develop players to play at a high level. Building personal character,memories and friendships that will last a lift time. We have many contacts with college coaches and former players to help get our team exposure. We also play in some of the biggest showcases in the country from the Colorado Sparkler showcase to the Atlanta Legacy Showcase. If your serious about playing at the next level and have what it takes to play a high level of competition every tournament then this is the team for you.
This tryout will be like no other. This is a all day event and former college coaches and players as well as current players will be helping with this tryout. These coaches and players are going to help evaluate the players and we are going to choose the best players for this team. The players we are looking for will compete at the highest level and be competitive every game. The players must be hard working and have a great positive attitude. The player's we choose are serious about playing at the next level and should know what it takes to achieve that goal. If you are a player just looking to play on a good travel team but no desire to play at the next level then this team is probably not for you. This is for the athletes that want to be seen by college coaches and play in the biggest and best tournaments in the country.

Current players from local colleges will also be on hand to instruct and evaluate.
This is a great opportunity for any player wanting to part of a team that is going to help you get to the next level. This is basically a free all day camp where the girls will be put thru drills and workouts that college's go thru on a daily basis. The morning session will consist of drills where we will separate pitchers, catchers, infielders and outfielders and we will have a hour break for lunch at the field and The Coaches and Players will talk to the girls and tell them there stories about what it takes to reach the next level. Then the afternoon session will be a live scrimmage giving the girls a game type situation to perform.
At this point this is the tentative date if a date change happens I will update as soon as possible. I need every player planning on attending to rsvp please with the players Name, D.O.B, Positions, High School, Phone number, and Address. This tryout is open to any player who believes she can play at the next level. No player will be turned away for tryout's. We are looking for 99 and 00's birth dates and possibly a select few 98's. This is going to be a team that will stay together until every player is signed and gone to play college ball.
If you have any questions or plan on attending please contact Coach Jason Littlejohn
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the field!
