The Vipers Softball Organization is dedicated to providing high-caliber, competitive softball for girls looking to take their game to the next level. All of our USA Softball certified coaches are students of the game who are dedicated to improving not only their players’ skills but also their own coaching skills. As an organization we value and accommodate the all-around athlete and encourage girls to play multiple sports. Opportunities for improvement are abundant including a new Vipers-only pitching simulator batting facility which is available year-round. In addition, off-season practices at indoor turf facilities, separate pitching practices and catching clinics provide numerous options for even the most enthusiastic players. We compete at a high level, as can be seen by many tournament championships and strong finishes. Join our family and realize the benefits 100 current players are enjoying.
- The new Vipers Nest hitting facility features a simulator pitching machine so the players can face "virtual" live pitching all off-season. There is no substitute for hitting in softball and there is no better option to work on hitting than a pitching simulator (because you can't find a pitcher to throw that many pitches). Our players get between 150 and 200 swings off of live pitching each practice.
- Program approach to skill development.
- Program approach to coaching.
- We utilize top-notch indoor and outdoor facilities throughout the year.
- Winter Training - Emphasis on physical training, hitting, position work and pitching in the off-season
- Tournaments and games
- Tournaments commensurate with each team's level
- Weeknight travel league
- We help those players who want to connect with college coaches to do so - from bringing in ex-college players to help with seminars to coaching tools to connect with college coaches on your behalf.
- Position clinics are included for all levels
- CONTINUING IN 2019 Pitching Instruction - The Vipers program recognizes the incremental expense that pitchers incur and pays for individual instruction up to ½ of the registration fee for 12U+ (younger players still receive free group pitching instruction)
- We facilitate working with one of the top pitching instructors in the country
- Catchers clinics run in the winter
Benefits vs Other Programs:
- Convenience – The convenience of a top softball program with the ability to stay relatively local for practices and many games. We will be utilizing the local indoor turf facilities for practices, batting, clinics, and potentially winter games. We have great access to the 4 skinned fields on the Victor Central Schools campus.
- A “Softball Family” – Often these are players from the same or neighboring school districts. Players and families develop great bonds and relationships that last for many years.
- Cost – A lot of softball for the money: 6 tournaments (our younger 10U team plays 3 to 4 tournaments) - 40 to 55 games in total depending on the team, league games during the week, off-season skill development, additional "program clinics", and specific pitchers, catchers, hitting sessions.
