WEATHER Update for Showcase check here:

Friday's weather is questionable. We will do our best to play the games. If we can play with a delayed schedule, then the two noon games will be moved to Saturday night at 8pm. If we can push the schedule to 3pm, the remaining games will be played with a one time slot delay. If we need to cancel then games will begin with Saturday schedule as posted. We will do our best. I will be working fields with no time to answer. I will post ASAP on the website. 

Friday, 6:45am update......we have to hold off changing anything for further weather updates. We will be at the fields at 10am for the next update unless heavy rains before then. check back. Friday, 9am......right now all games as scheduled....please check back

It is now finally time for the old Coach to retire. I have met some great young ladies, super assistant coaches and some helpful parents. It has been a thrill to be part of it from the beginning. But it's time for young people to get involved in coaching........My hope is that I left you all with some good life lessons.......I'll miss the competition but I'll see you all at the summer tournaments....Recent years have been difficult emotional times off the field and it's time for me to recharge in a different way. My garage will still be open for people who want to learn through lessons. I still enjoy teaching. I appreciate what all of you have contributed to this journey.


"Thanks for the Memories"
