For the 2014-15 Travel Ball Season, TNLI expects to have a total of 7 (possibly 8) teams as follows:
Team 18U Elite – Managed & Coached by John Montefusco and Bob Cozzetto, who are currently coaching the Nassau Community College Softball team. This team is for those players looking to showcase their talents to College Coaches in an effort to be recruited to play College softball. They will play in East Coast Regional College Showcase and Play-to-Win tournaments.
Team Nitro 16U Elite – Managed & Coached by Mike Glaser, this team will play in regional 16U & 18U tournaments in an effort to prepare players for the higher levels of softball. Efforts will focus on exposing the players/team to the College recruiting process by playing in selected College Showcase tournaments in addition to the Play-to-Win tournaments.
Team Nitro 00 – Managed & Coached by Jimmy Rogers, this team will be a second year 14U team made up primarily of players born in 2000. TNLI 00 will look to build upon the advancements achieved the previous year as they challenge themselves to the higher levels of travel ball on LI. They will play in Regional tournaments in the greater NY area.
Team Nitro 01 – Managed & Coached by Dr. Lewis Jassey, this team will be a first year 14U team made up primarily of players born in 2001 and will look to continue to build upon the success they achieved at the 12U level again challenging themselves to play at the higher levels of travel ball on LI. They will play in regional tournaments in the greater NY area.
Team Nitro 02- Managed and Coached by Steve Rivera, this team will be a second year 12U team made up primarily of players born in 2002 and will look to once again establish themselves as one of the better 12U teams on LI. They will play in regional tournaments in the greater NY area with the expected goal to attend one of the National tournaments (USSSA or Pony) during the Summer of 2015.
Team Nitro 03 – TNLI will be establishing at least one (maybe 2) brand new, first year 12U team(s). Since we anticipate a high turnout of players at the 12U level, we will accomodate as many players as possible providing we have the Managers and Coaches that hold the same high values and philosphy that TNLI stands for. And that is to first and foremost develop the love and spirit of the sport with in each player and second to focus on player development. Winning will take care of itself providing the first two are the core values of each manager, coach and team.
Team Nitro 06 – TNLI will form a first year 8U team that will be under the Managerial guidance of Dr Lewis Jassey. This team is strictly a developmental team made up primarily of players born in 2006. Most of these players currently play in the Half Hollow Hills Little League and will start on the journey of developing their skill sets for travel ball in the years to come. There will be no open tryouts for this team but if you are interested in having your daughter join such a team, please eamil us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Dr Lewis Jassey directly.
