Fastpitch/Select Program

Summer/Fall 2013 Tryout Information

Fastpitch Softball is the highest level of Koa softball. Select provides players the opportunity to play at a higher level, find camaraderie, perform through adversity, learn teamwork and to respect opponents on and off the field. For players in the younger age groups expect an emphasis on skills and team building while keeping it fun.  As the players approach high school, expectations rise for increased focus and performance.  The program is ideal for players looking to try out for their high school team. As players progress in age and skill level, teams gel, on and off-field friendships form, and meaningful softball memories are made.

Program Description: Koa’s Select Fastpitch program is intended for serious players.  Select Fastpitch must be players’ primary athletic commitment for the season.  Interested athletes must attend tryouts.  Players receive equal attention during practices, and playing time is based on merit. Teams will have starters and bench players; in double-headers (when applicable) starters play the first game and everyone plays in game two. Generally, players attend two 1.5-hour practices/week at fields in the Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville area. Teams play between 12-18 games/season, depending on the age group, with games on Sundays.  Each team has a “Head Coach” that attends games and practices with rotating Assistant Coaches (avg. 1.5 coaches per game/practice). Coaches (and you and your athlete) are aided by our full-time staff, including Koa’s Director of Softball, who handles field assignments, scheduling, uniforms, equipment, practice plans and more.
