For each of our Players, Coaches, Board Members, and Parents to become better in their unique roles within our organization, always lead by example and keep the line of communication open.
Players – Must be leaders on and off the fields, be a great team mate, and be respectful to coaches, players, and parents. Become known as someone that others follow thought her actions, as a fundamentally sound player that always shows outstanding sportsmanship and always practices or plays in a game as if it were her last.
Coaches – will teach; mentor and coach every athlete in our fundamental values. They will focus on each individual athlete and prepare them to move to the next level in their career and life. They will always showing outstanding sportsmanship and remembering that mentors, teacher and leaders first.
Board Members – To always lead and guide the organization with integrity, never allow any individual to be bigger than the organization. Willing to make the tough decisions based on our vision for the good of the athletes, the organization and the game.
Parents – Always support your athlete, their team mates, coaches and our organization with positive attitude. Your actions during practices, games, and in public can determent if you hurt or help our athletes. Remember to always show outstanding sportsmanship, be a fan first, a parent second, and a coach last. Enjoy the youth of your athlete as time goes by too fast and then they are gone.
We've had a rocky road to date, but the families that understand our vision have stayed and have begun their journey. I encourage anyone looking for a new journey to come out to either of tryout dates to get a look first hand at our program and philosophy. We are planning to have 3 teams in 2018. Coaches from each of those teams will be at these tryouts. All of our coaching staff have One thing in common, which is to train your young ladies to be amazing leaders.

Hello everyone. After more than a year of running the Rebels I've realized that I can't do it right from a coaching standpoint and a management perspective. I just don't have the time anymore. With that being said I'm glad to welcome back Coach Todd Verkennes to the Rebels! Todd will be the head coach of the Rebels going forward and will be in charge of practices and all game coaching. I will stay on running the finance part and helping with recruiting but all softball on the field items will be handled by Todd. We are going to continue pushing for new schools for recruiting and working with kids to help them live out their dream of playing in college by trying to find the best school for each girl.
More to come on this at the parent meeting.
Welcome back Coach Todd!!
