  PRESIDENTS VOICE

 

The Clovis Rockets has been a respected Girls "A" Fastpitch Softball Organization in the Central Valley for over 15 years. As all of you know Girls Fastpitch Softball has gone through an enormous amount of change in the past few years some good and some less than positive for everyone involved. 

Like with any great organization you will have many years of success mixed in with some challenging times when it is imparative you remain true to your organizations core values.  As President of the Rockets I give it my all to ensure that every decision made by the Rockets in some way benefits our players. I work tirelessly with our coaches to make sure that we don't forget that we must stay true to  the "Girls" and the "Game".  One thing that has truly saddened me over the past few years is that Loyalty has been replaced by selfishness.  Many players, parents, coaches, and board members have substituted the developement of the players with short term victories which at best satisfy only their egos.  As the Rockets President I make every effort to promote the Clovis Rockets but I also understand that some players believe in the vision and mission of the organization they currently play for....I whole heartedly respect that decision.

Unfortunately these type of players are becoming few and far between. There are too many players out there with team gear from virtually every travel organization in the valley by the time they reach the 14U level.  This has resulted in players who face challenges make the decision to change their colors rather than to fight through the adversity. There is no doubt that this philosophy has translated to the field where I see players who no longer know how to give it their all...but instead respond to difficult situations by placing blame on others, pretending to be the victim, and quitting rather than finding a way to win.

 

Make no mistake....the Clovis Rockets are about WINNING but what separates us is that we refuse to do it at the sacrifice of the player.  I expect our coaches to push our players to get the best from them...but not to the point where we break a player and she ends up hating the game she once loved.  The Rockets are constantly working on better understanding the recruiting process as it reaches down into the younger age groups and helping our parents distinguish a recruiting opportunity from a money grab.  We also make realistic decisions as to which tournaments we need to expose our players to....with so many softball associations touting their tournament as a "must attend". 

If you have some of the same thoughts and would like to be part of a different approach...feel free to call me and we can discuss further to see if the Rockets might in fact be a long-term possibility for your daughter.
