Affiliated with the USSSA Pride professional softball team, our program includes the facilities and player development necessary to help your daughter achieve all of her softball goals.
The Pride program offers our own outdoor/indoor fields and structured player development (on and off the field). No private ownership and the overhead means attractive pricing for elite travel play. Our new winter home will feature one of the largest softball dedicated complexes in the region complete with multiple hitting/pitching cages, fitness center, speed and agility classes, and an additional 9,000 sq. ft. practice area.
For the 2022 season, Pride will field the following teams:
Travel softball season starts shortly after tryouts at the end of summer. Some teams and managers elect to play in some fall tournaments, indoor winter tournaments, then continue with their season throughout the spring and summer.
Outdoor practices are held at Harris Fields in Granger. Pride is practicing at an indoor facility located in Niles, MI. Tournaments are found within few hours of Granger, but some teams might elect to travel further away.
The frequency of practices are up to managers. Most managers use a weekday practice and a weekend practice each week.
The quantity of games played are dependent on the tournaments and how many guaranteed games are advertised for each tournament. Most softball tournaments have a 4 game guarantee, some even have 6 game guarantees!
Jerseys and pants are provided, along with a few other items if managers choose. Uniforms are usually ordered after fittings in early winter. Managers will decide on the quantity and style of the uniforms, within certain boundaries.
Managers dictate the cost of the season. Managers attempt to forecast the cost of uniforms, indoor facility use, and tournament fees for the season. That cost is divided amongst the team. At times, extra tournaments could cause an additional fee, but managers will discuss this with families. You can expect to pay for gate fees, parking fees and/or travel fees associated with the tournaments. Teams might also use sponsor funds and/or fundraising funds to offset the cost of player fees or tournament fees.
