2016 ASA Champions Cup update: Congrats 18u-Cuevas Placed 38th out of 100+ Elite Gold teams

Good job to our girls.  We stepped up on Championship Day.  While half the teams went home, our young and small team where still left standing.  We beat the Arizona Hotshots Gold team 8-0.  This team had 10 D1 n D2 signed players.  But we played Destroyer ball.  We finally loss to another loaded All American Sports Academy 18u Gold team 6-3.  We had this team beat all the way to the 4th inning.  But it was a great game...they Ended up winning next 2 games......


Congrats to Our 18u Destroyers Player Emily Chavira:

Other Destroyers in College:
2016 Emily Chavira  will be playing in York College in Nebraska and played Pitcher/First for Coach Cuevas (2014-2016)


College Scrimmages:

Good job to the 18u Destroyers-Cuevas.  They had a tough schedule that included playing three top notch City Colleges and two gold teams.   In all 5 scrimmages that 18u full of young players 13-17 years of age showed why they where among the top teams in ASA in the Valley.  When the Coach batted and played all 14 players and still only loss by 1 point.  That is great coaching.  The coach believes that scrimmages are meant for the team to work and get better and at the same time compete.  That's why everybody plays.    Good job girls.

Grapettes NAIA Showcase in Stockton Oct 29-30

WELCOME:

Welcome to Destroyers website.  Most of our teams are ASA, PGF, and USSSA sanctioned.  Our organization has been in existance for over 10 years now.  Our mission is to provide every possible opportunity for each player to become the best scholar/athlete possible.  Our Organizational emphasis to promote important life skills and the development of good character through fastpitch softball.  

California Destroyers Coaches will promote the sport  of youth fastpitch softball to ages 7-18.  We will coach the fundamentals of softball as required by Amateur Sofball Association and all other youth softball associations.  Our goal as coaches is to coach our players to become Varsity High School and College players. 

California Destroyers Organization are for players that want to become a member of our high class organization.  We build players from the ground up, and make them Elite players that everyone scouts.  That said, we are coaches that coach and implement the best coaching techniques possible.          


2017 California Destroyers Organization

We would like to thank all of the new and returning coaches and players.  2017 should be one of the best years ever.  All of our teams will be moving up to the next level of competition.  All of the teams will be playing ASA, PGF, Triple Crown, and some NSA.  We are a young organization that has been together for the past 10 years and grown from 5 players to 100 players. 

We are happy to be the only organization to develop players and not just manage them.  Our organization is not afraid of raw talented players because we coach and develop players.  We have one of the highest retention rates of past players than any other organization.  Our coaches in all age groups are loyal to the player and family.  We are a family oriented organization that cares about you and not just your wallet.  So many organizations look forward to try and recruit our players because they are well coached and talented.  But, those are the same organizations that look the other way when they first needed a team.  There has been so many players that have gone through our development program.  We converted there level of play from average ball players to "A" ball players that are highly scouted. 

Our coaching staff in our organization have the ability to develop players because they have been involved with recreation programs.  There hand chosen because they coach the fundamentals needed for college and high school.  All of our coaches are not here to manage, but to coach.  They do not get paid, but volunteer there time.  They do not expect you to know it all, but expect you to learn it all.  California Destroyers are the players of the future and of today....      


Congrats to our Destroyer College Athletes

Good Job Elizabeth and Yena on helping the Sundevils rank 2nd in state achieve success this season. 


California Destroyers are Now Sponsored by Anderson Bat Company for 2015

Hard work finally pays off.  We are proud to have been selected and sponsored by a great bat company that will now power all of our players to excel at the plate by using the Anderson Bat Company Bats like Rocketech and Supernova.  We have used Rocketech since 2009 and now proud to be recognized as part of The Anderson Bat Company Family.  Every team from North and South California has played against our Destroyer Teams and know us as great hitters.   Now that we are powered by Rocketech and Supernova bats they better watch out.  We expect a lot more homeruns and harder hitting balls.
