This will be our second season in bringing back the 14 U Girls Travel Softball Team to the Aurora Illinois Raider Organization.
We will look to play one to two fall tournaments.
We will practice in the off season to prepare the team to start playing in the spring.
The team will play in about 6 to 8 tournaments and will also play in a spring league. Combined games of approximate 40 to 50 games.
The Raiders organization has a long standing history with the Fox valley Park district ensuring us fields for home games.
Included in player fees are uniforms, practice facility fees, tournament fees, hitting coaches etc.
Fees are substantially lower than other programs due to fundraisers, players and coaches gathering sponsorships and playing in more local B/C
tournaments than out of state tournaments.
Pitching lessons are required (while it can be as group), the cost is the responsibility of the parents.
The coaching staff is excited to start the next season with your player.
Thank you,
Raider Coaching Staff
