We are looking to add a catcher to the roster due to a long term injury 
 
The 14U Shooting Stars Gold will be moving up to 16U! 
 
The 16U Gold Shooting Stars Gold plan to play a competitive "A" level schedule at both the 16U and 18U divisions in 2014/2015.  This schedule will include several east coast "showcases" to expose our players to college coaching staffs.  We will schedule several optional college "exposure" camps during year to assit our players in gaining additional exposure to college coaches and programs.  We once again plan to attend an optional overnight summer camp in 2015.  This year we will be looking to attend JMU's camp. We will end our season with a "National Championship" tournament which will be determined as the season progresses.  We are looking to build a team that will  work towards qualifiying for ASA 18U Gold Natioals in 2015/2016.
 
We get asked this time of year "What position(s) or type of player are you looking for?  We are looking for varsity caliber players who are willing to work hard and put the  team first.  We understand that you may have played JV this year as a freshman or sophmore due to your high school team being loaded with juniors and seniors, we understand.  We want players with varsity level talent even if you don't have varsity level experience.  We want players that want to be Shooting Stars.  We want players that want to be here and stay here!  We want girls and families that take the game seriously who are committed to playing the game at a high level.  We are looking for good athletes.  If you think this is you we would love to see at tryouts.  Please don't assume you can't make the team.  Let us make that call, don't sell your short by not trying to play at the highest level.  Failing to try is worse than trying and failing!!  There are a lot of B and C teams you could play for.  You could be a stud on one of those lower level teams but ask yourself is that what you want?  Does being the best player on a really bad team sound like fun?  I don't think that sounds like fun at all.  You only get better by pushing yourself and by surrounding yourself with better players! If that sounds like fun that you are ready to be a Shooting Star!
 
Due to a recent injury we will be looking to add a catcher to the roster. 
 
Shoot for the Stars!  


 WAY TO GO STARS!
