The Valley Storm Fastpitch Organization is once again one of the most followed organizations in Ohio by college coaches. We have in the past and continue as an organization to help produce high end athletes who are very recruitable. We play solid schedules which help place our players in front of coaches where recruitment is a real possiblity.

We do not play West coast tournaments, nor do we travel to Texas or Arizona as some do. Thats great for them if it works, but our strategy is different and proven to work for our players.

Our teams practice and play in Fall and Winter and play a solid summer schedule all for a fair price. We are a true 501-c3 Non Profit and also a public charity.

Our tryouts are in August and our recruitment record is one of the best.

 

Come on over !!

THIS TYPE OF ORGANIZATION IS NOT FOR EVERYONE AS IT REQUIRES MANY HOURS OF PRACTICE AND SOME TRAVEL. ALTHOUGH WE TRY OUR BEST TO STAY IN OHIO, OCCASIONALLY OUR TEAMS TRAVEL TO INDIANA, WEST VIRGINIA, KENTUCKY, TENNESSEE, GEORGIA, OR ILLINOIS, TO NAME A FEW.

WE STRIVE  TO GET OUR TEAMS IN THE BEST TOURNAMENTS POSSIBLE SUCH AS PGF QUALIFIERS, THE ATLANTA LEGACY, USA/ASA TOURNAMENTS, STINGRAYS, LASER NATION, GAPSS, STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENTS, MUSIC CITY HITS IN NASHVILLE, AND OTHER MISC COLLEGE EXPOSURE TOURNAMENTS.

WE ARE FOLLOWED BY MANY COLLEGES ALREADY AND MORE ARE ADDED TO THE LIST SEASON BY SEASON. OUR PLAYERS ARE DEDICATED TO FASTPITCH SOFTBALL. WE LIVE FOR IT.

WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING AHEAD TO THE NEXT SEASON, TRYING TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE A SOLID CORE COMING IN TO BUILD AROUND AT EACH AGE DIVISION.

ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS  PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL OR SHOOT ME AN EMAIL ANYTIME.

What's the difference between Divisions I, II and III?


Division I

Division I member institutions have to sponsor at least seven sports for men and seven for women (or six for men and eight for women) with two team sports for each gender. Each playing season has to be represented by each gender as well. There are contest and participant minimums for each sport, as well as scheduling criteria. For sports other than football and basketball, Div. I schools must play 100% of the minimum number of contests against Div. I opponents -- anything over the minimum number of games has to be 50% Div. I. Men's and women's basketball teams have to play all but two games against Div. I teams, for men, they must play 1/3 of all their contests in the home arena. Schools that have football are classified as Div. I-A or I-AA. I-A football schools are usually fairly elaborate programs. Div. I-A teams have to meet minimum attendance requirements (17,000 people in attendance per home game, OR 20,000 average of all football games in the last four years or, 30,000 permanent seats in their stadium and average 17,000 per home game or 20,000 average of all football games in the last four years OR, be in a member conference in which at least six conference members sponsor football or more than half of football schools meet attendance criterion. Div. I-AA teams do not need to meet minimum attendance requirements. Div. I schools must meet minimum financial aid awards for their athletics program, and there are maximum financial aid awards for each sport that a Div. I school cannot exceed.

Division II

Division II institutions have to sponsor at least four sports for men and four for women, with two team sports for each gender, and each playing season represented by each gender. There are contest and participant minimums for each sport, as well as scheduling criteria -- football and men's and women's basketball teams must play at least 50% of their games against Div. II or I-A or I-AA opponents. For sports other than football and basketball there are no scheduling requirements. There are not attendance requirements for football, or arena game requirements for basketball. There are maximum financial aid awards for each sport that a Div. II school must not exceed. Division II teams usually feature a number of local or in-state student-athletes. Many Division II student-athletes pay for school through a combination of scholarship money, grants, student loans and employment earnings. Division II athletics programs are financed in the institution's budget like other academic departments on campus. Traditional rivalries with regional institutions dominate schedules of many Division II athletics programs.

Division III

Division III institutions have to sponsor at least five sports for men and five for women, with two team sports for each gender, and each playing season represented by each gender. There are minimum contest and participant minimums for each sport. Division III athletics features student-athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletic ability and athletic departments are staffed and funded like any other department in the university. Division III athletics departments place special importance on the impact of athletics on the participants rather than on the spectators. The student-athlete's experience is of paramount concern. Division III athletics encourages participation by maximizing the number and variety of athletics opportunities available to students, placing primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition.
