The 14U Banshee’s Black is a first year 14U team made up of all 13 year old players. Our team is coming off of a very successful 2015/2016 12U season. The highlights include 98 wins (between the fall/spring), PONY PA State camps, 3rd place PONY Nationals, Nationally ranked by FloSoftball (http://www.flosoftball.com/), 4 (four!) 1st place finished at PONY NQ tourneys, 1 1st place finish at an ASA NQ tourney GOLD bracket, 1 1st place finish at a USSSA NQ tourney, 3rd place Chambersburg Memorial Day Madness GOLD bracket. In the last three seasons our team has finished top 5 in every Nationals we’ve attended (3rd in 2016, 5th in 2015 & 2nd in 2014) and won over 220 games. We are very proud of our track record of success & look forward to a solid 2016/2017 14U season!
We have an excellent relationships with many college coaches. Over the last few seasons coaches from St Joseph’s and East Stroudsburg have routinely come out to us to work with our players at our practices. Our team routinely attends fall & winter college softball camps/clinics as well. In the past three years we have attended college softball camps at Drexel, Penn, Millersville, St. Joseph’s, Lehigh and East Stroudsburg. Last fall we also attended the GM Fall College Elite Training Clinic run by Gerry Mauro and were able to work with directly multiple college coaches. We plan to attend college softball camps during the 2016/2017 off season as we believe it is critical to get our players the best training from and exposure to the best local college coaches.
Our team works hard! We will put in a strong effort with weekly team agility training (we use Brian Whiteside at Crossfit Generations in Horsham), weekly team practice, and bi-weekly pitchers/catchers. We also do weekly team hitting at our Banshee’s hitting facility with Chaos GOLD coach Larry Robtison. We would like to welcome a new coach this year, Maeve McGill. Maeve is a former Banshee who played for Elizabethtown College. We feel very fortunate to have Maeve on board & are looking forward to having her work with our players.
As always, we are really looking forward to tournament play this spring & summer as we will typically build an aggressive schedule. Last year our team traveled to the ESPN WWOS in Orlando to compete in the Diamond9 President’s Day weekend tourney (3rd place finish). Last season we played in a total of 16 PONY, ASA, USSSA NQ tourneys as well as PONY Nationals. This season we will plan to have a similar schedule that includes 12 to 14 PGF, PONY, ASA or USSSA tourneys as well as a National. In the Spring we will also co-host the Banshee’s Bash PONY National qualifier which is 16-24 team 14U tourney at Luken’s Park in Horsham.
The coaches are truly excited about our team as we feel we have a great group of players & families!
