TRI-CITY THUNDER

FAST PITCH TRAVEL SOFTBALL

 

 

What is Tri-City Thunder about?

 

This will be TCT’s 6th season, and each year we strive to become a better and stronger team and organization. We have had a lot of success over the years and at this point have helped a number of girls play for their College softball team.  We hope to have 6 teams this season, offering 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U, and 23U teams.  So if you are interested in any level, please fill out a tryout request.  You are not committing to the team by trying out, so I ask that you give us a chance. 

 

 

 

We are also looking for coaches for the 12U, 14U, AND 16U teams, so fill out a coaches application if you are interested, and I will be in contact with you. 

 

 

 

TCT's coaches strive to maintain a positive atmosphere as the girls are molded into strong all-around softball players. It is very important to us that each player is able to have a good time and form lifelong friendships. As our players become young women, we stress the importance of good sportsmanship and want the girls to become responsible individuals.

 

 

 

To describe a TCT player, I would say she is dedicated, accountable for her actions, maintains a positive attitude, learns from her mistakes, and grows as a person and friend to her teammates.  

 

 

 

 

 

What is expected for training?

 

With the level of competition in travel ball, it is important that each player be dedicated to the team and is able to put forth time to practice and become the strongest player she can be. 

 

 

 

Our teams usually practice throughout the year, with the exception of school ball season.  Each team will have some differences in their year round training.  Practices for each team is 2-3 times a week in the summer and fall, and winter training will depend on the age group and the coach.  It is an expectation that you be at practices as often as you can in order for you to be a strong player.

 

 

 

 

 

How many tournaments will the teams play in?

 

The season is August 2014 - July 2015, and you are committing to this time, unless an agreement is made with your coach.  Generally each team will plan to attend 9-14 tournaments throughout the entire season.  We may also attend an indoor dome tournament in the winter months.  Tournaments are held on the weekends.  Many of the tournaments are held locally, and we try to keep the away tournaments as close as possible to help keep the overall costs affordable, but will have a few hotel stays.  As you get into the older age groups, there will be a little more travel as we seek out more college exposure tournaments.

 

 

 

What is the cost?

 

Travel softball is expensive, with the average cost of each tournament ranging from $350-$500.  That, along with other team registration fees and training fees, add up quickly.  We will plan to have at least one mandatory fundraiser to keep the cost affordable for players.  Each team will differ slightly, but we usually break up fees into 3 payments.  

 

You can save on your fee if you get a business or person to sponsor the team, a percentage of money will be taken off the fee you owe. 

 

 

 

Additional costs will be a second player uniform, and helmets, if needed.  This will be due at the beginning of the season or when needed.

 

 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions, and I hope to hear from you soon.
