We plan to have a 10u, 12u, 14u, 16u and two 18u teams.  One 18u team will be a Showcase team and one 18u team will be for seniors - some showcases in the fall and a lighter schedule in the summer.  We will also have a 10u if there is enough interest and those can come at the same times as the 12's and 14's above.

Looking for young women to assist on the 10, 12 and 14u teams.  If interested, please contact me at

*We will have a senior team again this year.  The senior team is designed to meet the needs of upper classmen  as an alternative to a showcase team.  If you are already signed/committed, winding down, and/or want time in the fall for college visits and college clinics and want to enjoy your final summer before college, but still want to play competitive softball at a LOWER COST than a showcase team, than this team is for you.

This affordable team will play 4-5 showcases/tournaments in the fall of 2016, 4 tournaments in the spring/summer of 2017 and weeknight league ball in June and July 2017 (Wednesday nights starting mid-June, double headers).

This is also a great option for any High School aged player who is looking to play beyond the high school season, but wants a lighter schedule or is not necessarily looking to showcase. 



Dates for below tryouts to be posted at a later date:

Held at:  Georgian Court University
              900 Lakewood Avenue
              Lakewood, NJ

These teams will be coached by College Players/Coaches:  

Please keep checking back.
