THE OLDEST SOFTBALL ORGANIZATION IN SAN DIEGO SINCE 1992: Welcome
The Power Surge Organization offers many great things for those interested in a high level of softball. We are the oldest Travel Softball Organization in San Diego having started in 1992 which means stability. We are also the only Travel Softball Organization that has its own fields.
We have four fields, four batting cages all lighted, six practice pitching mounds all lighted. We have picnic areas and a beautiful bathroom facility. We offer Pitching lessons, Hitting lessons, Fielding lessons, and Catching lessons on our facility as well. We recommend that all the girls take part in these lessons to get better as players.
As for our players and moving to the next level of college softball our Power Surge Organization has placed dozens and dozens of girls in college with College Scholarships. From UCLA to Harvard and producing doctors and lawyers to school teachers and engineers. Power Surge is a great way to play hard and be seen by college recruiters at all the top College Showcase tournaments.
Finally, always represent Power Surge with class. Play the game fair and as parents support your daughters always in the positive. Cheer for our team and never be disrespectful of the other team. Treat all teams with class.
Thanks all, and good luck. I will see you all on the fields.
