The Program:

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 the brand NEW ViSTA (Vipers Softball Training Academy) facility.  This dedicated softball training facility features multiple hitting lanes and stations.  This is the only program in the area with a pitching simulator that let's players face simulated live pitching and around 150 swings per session. It will also include pitching, hitting, and catching instruction. In addition, off-season practices at indoor turf facilities. Provides enough training for even the most enthusiastic players.

 

  • The NEW ViSTA training facility features a simulator pitching machine so the players can face "virtual" live pitching all off-season. There is no substitute for actual 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.
  • Top hitting instructor works with our teams.
  • 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 2020 Pitching Instruction - The Vipers program recognizes the incremental expense that pitchers incur and pays for individual instruction up to ½ of the registration fee paid for 12U+ (max reimbursement up to $400 - 10U players still receive free group pitching instruction)
    • We work with one of the top pitching instructors in the country
    • Catchers clinics run throughout the year

Benefits vs Other Programs:

  • Convenience – The convenience of a top softball program with the ability to stay relatively local for practices and many games. 
  • 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: 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. A premium program for only $995/year (12u and older).
