Banshees 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 Banshees are now in its 33rd 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 Banshees…the more we play & practice as a team the better the team & the player will become!
Q: Can my player play Little League, “in house” or rec ball in addition to travel with the Banshees?
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 Banshees: the more we play & practice as a team the better the team & the player will become!
Q: How far does the team travel?
A: All teams will play in USSSA, USA, and possible out of state tournaments. Most tourneys that make up the majority of the schedule are generally ~1hr away from Horsham, PA. 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 & 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: Each team sets dues based on teams’ needs and schedules. These fees are often offset by team fundraising activities per team. In the past, teams have participated in significant fundraising activities that greatly reduced costs.
