The Pittsburgh Spirit Fastpitch Softball Organization is Western Pennsylvania's leader in quality fastpitch travel teams. The organization develops well-rounded, team-oriented players who excel at the highest levels of competition. The Spirit organization's driving philosophy is to maximize the development of the player's skills (both individual and team) by providing a world class practice/drill environment with year round indoor and outdoor dedicated practice facilities. We combine this with promoting a positive attitude in all situations--in victory and defeat--both on and off the field. We are humble in our victories and accept our losses with dignity--we teach that a positive attitude is the best approach for everything in life.

Our coaches attend annual national coaching programs where they learn from the leading Division I college coaches and olympians about the latest drill/practice routines and game strategy.

Our dedicated indoor winter practice facilities include: (a) areas for pitching and fielding practice, and eight batting stations with two "jugs" pitching machines during the week; and (b) an indoor sports dome facility on Sunday mornings providing two full size practice fields that allows us to run scrimmages and full field practices, with additional separate practice drill areas. During the spring and summer months we have a dedicated lighted outdoor field.

The Spirit teams win approximately 70 to 90% or more of their games and all of our teams qualify annually for National Championship Tournaments for ASA, PONY or NSA. For information on our three National Championship teams please see the "History" page by clicking on the left side of this page.

Our teams attend, among others, tournaments in Pennsylvania (State Championships), Ohio (Sluggerfest), Michigan (Compuware) and New York (Aunt Rosie's). We also plan to qualify and send our teams to National Championship tournaments at the end of each season.

In 2014, we are fielding a total of eleven teams (one 10U, two 12U, three 14U, two 16U and three 18U) as set forth below.
