Who are the Warriors? 

The Hampton Roads Warriors are a  private non-profit organization dedicated to girls fastpitch softball and boys baseball.    We are small non-bingo organization looking to remain exclusive to our coaches and players.   With more resources than most larger organizations, we have the ability to dedicate more time to our teams and their players.  With several fields and a 5,000 square foot turf indoor facility we are able to provide our teams with much more flexibility and resources compared to other monopoly organizations at the fraction of cost and time.  Coaches, teams and players have more access to inhouse, private and college level instruction.   

 

Why we are not BINGO? 

We decided to not participate in bingo as a fundraiser for numerouse reasons.  One, most bingo organizations rely on feeder teams (10-14U) to work bingo, raise money, and pay for older showcase teams.  The more 12U teams they have, the more money they have to fly out to Las Vegas. We don't believe that a 10U team should make thousands of dollars and only be able to use a small percentage of the spoils.  Most 10-14U teams can fund themselves for a year on less than 4 bingo sessions a year. Two, often I ask coaches from other organizations why they were not participating in certain tournaments.  I commonly hear that it was because the tournament fell on a BINGO weekend.   Third, younger teams are commonly lured in to BINGO organizations because the organization makes promises of your daughter receiving a college scholarship.  That simple isn't the norm.  The showcase teams travel to the west coast on the bingo money earned by a 10U team.  The bingo money you helped earn has little chance of helping your 10 year old receive a full ride to a major university.  We often hear from parents that in the beginning they were told to work one session a month and before long they are working two a month to cover for a showcase team .   Fourth, bingo does not gaurentee anyone a scholarship.   The average 10U player does not continue on playing past the 16U level.  Five, if you are working BINGO, why is there still a buy-in at the beginning of each season?  Six, it simply stinks!  Have you ever smelled like BINGO hours after BINGO?

Choose your team wisely.  Observe a practice before tryouts to see if the coach is dedicating your money to your softball education. 

  ATTENITON COACHES: At this time, we are open to expanding to one more team, girls or boys, at any age group.   If you are interested in having more flexibility, more resources, and freedom to manage your own team , please feel free to contact us at 757-237-7507. 

* As an organization policy, our coaches do not engage in player recruitment on the field or by phone*
