|The End of Fall Tournament Season .....|
As the seasons turn, our girls and coaching staffs turn their attention from fall tournaments to winter conditioning and workouts. Our teams finished up a successful fall season, which has seen two of our seniors on the 18U “Gold” signed with colleges to fulfill their dreams of continuing their softball careers at the next level.
This time of year has a lot going on; as we honor all of those who has serviced in our Armed Forces with Veteran’s Day, to looking back and celebrating all we are thankful for with Thanksgiving, and celebrating the “Birth of Christ” with Christmas. The Sting Family would like to wish everyone a safe and wonderful Holiday Season!
However before we can start all of the wonderful celebrations, we have some work to do in preparation for the anticipated upcoming spring season. Starting the week of 28 Oct, all of our teams started winter conditioning at Speed by Rick Cox. Supplemented through the bingo funds, our 18U Gold through 14U are participating in training twice a week for 16 weeks and our 12U will have training once a week for 16 weeks. Along with Speed, teams turn their attention to sharpening their fundamental skills of hitting, pitching, throwing, and fielding at our indoor facility (Norfolk Baseball Academy) through team and individual work-outs. Ladies…. Your hard work will pay off!!!!!
Once again, Sting would like to wish everyone a safe and wonderful Holiday Season!! Don’t forget to check out the spirit catalog and get all of your loved ones their perfect “Sting” gift!
