CALIFORNIA STING: Welcome

The California Sting is presently the only major competitive travel organization fielding teams in both boy's baseball and girl's fastpitch softball. Historically one of the largest and most competitive Girl's ASA Junior Olympic Softball organizations in Northern California, the California Sting has been in existence since 1994. We have sent 14 teams to the ASA National Championships in the past eleven years including 4 teams which finished among the top 10 teams in the nation. Our 2002 14U boy's team qualified to play in the AAU National Tournament. Our 2003 boy's 12U and 14U teams qualified for and attended the 2003 USSSA Major World Series in Chino Hills, CA and Orlando, FL respectively. Our 16U boy's team completed competition in the USABF World Series during 2004. Our 9U and 10U teams qualified for and player in the USSSA World Series in 2005 & 2006. At least 20 Sting players have received college softball scholarships to such prestigious universities as Oregon, Virginia, Texas A & M, Tennessee and CSU Sacramento. Our proud tradition of fielding championship-caliber teams in all age divisions results from our quest to provide our players with the maximum opportunity to develop their athletic skills and achieve their goals as scholar-athletes and future leaders of America. As we move into 2008 we are expanding opportunities in youth baseball and softball to include age divisions from 9U through 18U at nationally competitive levels. See the notice below for more details. Our ultimate goal is to become a comprehensive youth sports organization spanning multiple sports. The California Sting is a non-profit corporation and maintains full charitable status pursuant to IRS Code Section 501(c)(3).
