“Passion creates work ethic. Work ethic leads to success.” — Amanda Scarborough
Love the game. Play for your teammates. Play with passion.
TRYOUT INFORMATION 2015-2016 SEASON — POSTED BELOW
The Velocity is a strong girls regional travel fastpitch softball program based in Vienna, VA. We look for dedicated “A” level athletes who are passionate about softball and have one or more of the following goals: 1) playing at the collegiate level; 2) excelling at the high school level; and/or 3) playing highly competitive softball with a great program because of the camaraderie, loyalty, and friendships they develop with their teammates.
We field teams at the 12U level, 14U level, and two high school teams for players eligible to play at the 16U and 18U levels.
Almost all of our players are “playing up.” By providing solid teaching and training, playing a challenging schedule, and playing up, we find that our players develop great confidence and advanced skills which better prepare them for high school and college competition.
In the Velocity program, we expect our players to excel not only on the field, but also in the classroom and in the community.
New Changes to Our High School Program
In recent years, we have labeled our high school teams 18U and 16U based on age eligibility. Since we constantly challenge our players to play up, labeling the high school teams by age has not always been a true reflection of the makeup of the team rosters. This Fall, we are modifying the names of our high school teams to more accurately reflect the goals of each team:
1) Our Velocity Select team will play a variety of Open and A level tournaments located throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. This team will participate in College Showcase, regional, and national tournaments. Players should expect occasional overnight travel. Please contact Paul Casey at email@example.com for more information.
2) Our Vienna Velocity team will play a combination of local Open, A, and B level tournaments as well as local College Showcase tournaments and national tournaments played in this area. Our Velocity team is designed for incoming freshmen who are looking to challenge themselves by playing up, and for older players who are looking for strong competition in and around VA, MD, and PA. **We are looking to add a strong pitcher to round out our roster. Please contact Paul Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Megan McCabe at email@example.com for more information or to schedule a private tryout.
