Our time as Ocala Hustle has come to an end but there are bright futures ahead for all our players. The past year has been a great experience for our team. Coach Robert took a group of players that had been moved around on various teams into a solid fundamentally sound team that truly cared about one another. In the year he coached these boys they placed 2nd four times and 1st two times. Looking into the future Coach Robert felt it was time to take these boys into an organization that could take them further into their last years in middle school and into their high school years.
Coach Robert will now be coaching one of the 13U teams for the Florida Hardballers. The Hustle had 9 kids tryout and fortunately all made the team and are looking forward to working hard and improving on all levels during the upcoming spring season. We may not be the Ocala Hustle in name but we will always be family and we look forward to being Florida Hardballers and embracing the rest of the team as family too!
The boys will be practicing each week with Coach Robert and Coach Eric who also coaches a 13U team for the Hardballers. Good Luck to all the teams that represent the Florida Hardballers in the upcoming season.
