Indy Dreams now LIDS Indiana Dreams
The Indy Dreams is a Fastpitch Softball Organization founded in 2001 for the purpose of developing hardworking young ladies into great softball players. The fundamentals of the game along with the importance of school learning have been the cornerstones of the organization. Since the beginning, the Indy Dreams have assisted numerous players in their endeavor to be able to play softball at the collegiate level. Many former Indy Dreams players have gone onto playing at the collegiate level and have been able to use their skills in the game of softball to help earn a college education via scholarships. The Indy Dreams have competed across the nation at a very high level with numerous top 10 finishes in several national championships throughout the years. To be able to compete at this level, our players at the younger age groups are taught the fundamental skills of the game. The development of the team as a unit is the first objective to achieving the individual goals. The goal of every coach in the Indy Dreams organization is to provide each player the opportunity to showcase her skills and to identify opportunities to play softball at the collegiate level the player desires.
The Indy Dreams are proud to announce their new sponsor, LIDS Team Sports, along with their new home at Grand Park in Westfield. The organization will be changing its name to be known as LIDS Indiana Dreams. Since 1991, LIDS has been a proud sponsor of Indiana’s premier youth travel baseball organization, the Indiana Bulls. The Indiana Dreams are thrilled to join with LIDS to be the softball organization to the Indiana Bulls. Grand Park will be the home of the LIDS Indiana Dreams. It has 26 fields with 8 lighted turf fields. By combining with LIDS, the Indiana Dreams will continue to be able to help young ladies achieve their goal to play at the collegiate level.
