Banshee’s Fastpitch softball is based in Horsham, PA. We have been in existence since 1987 & have a very proud tradition of playing competitive travel softball. The Banshee’s organization is now in its 32nd consecutive season as an organization and continues to grow.
Q: Can my player play other travel sports?
A: Yes, we encourage our younger players to be well rounded athletes, however we ask that your player prioritize the commitment to the Banshee’s…the more we play & practice as a team the better the team & player will become!
Q: Can my player play Little League, “in house” or rec ball in addition to travel with the Banshee’s?
A: Yes, the more softball the better as it is important to support local organizations & maintain player friendships at the younger age groups, however we ask that your player prioritize the commitment to the Banshee’s: the more we play & practice as a team the better the team & player will become!
Q: How far does the team travel?
A: All teams will play in 8 to 10 local PONY, USSSA & ASA tourneys in PA, NJ & DE. These tourneys make up the majority of the schedule and are generally ~1hr away from Horsham, PA. The team may go to a winter tourney in Williamsport, PA and either PONY Nationals in Cary, NC or the USSSA World Series at Disney in Orlando, FL in July. These tourneys are still TBD & will be decided on by the coaches of each team.
Q: When does the team play / practice?
A: Each team will play a fall schedule that will consist of practice, scrimmages, round robins & a maybe a tourney or two. The team will have weekly team practice, batting practice & pitching/catching practice during the winter months. The spring schedule will consist of weekly practice (1/2 per week), scrimmages, round robins & 8 to 10 tourneys.
Q: What is the cost?
A: Team dues are about $500 & uniforms are about $150. These fees are often offset by team fundraising activities as in 2012/2013 every team participated in significant fundraising activities that greatly reduced costs. Each team sets dues based on teams needs and schedules.
Q: Why the Banshee’s?
A: The Banshee’s have a very proud tradition as we’ve been in existence since 1987. We are a registered not for profit organization with a board (complete head coach list, board member names & contact are published on our website) that oversee the program. We are committed to fostering your players growth at each age level as we have teams that facilitate players being able to grow with our program.
