The Future Rebels tryouts went very well. It was great to see so many returning faces as well as new prospects looking to become part of the family. One of my favorite parts of the workout was seeing our seniors getting to work with our newest team, the FR 10U! I would like to say thank you to the seniors for paying it back and showing the leadership you've learned in your time here!
We are still looking for just a couple of athletes in the 10U division and 12U division. Our 10U consists of good 06 & 07 athletes with a solid pitching and catching combo. Our 12U team is gearing up to start playing ASA in March and will be attending qualifiers across the state in order to match up with the best competition in the nation. If you have a daughter who would accept help from our seniors and is looking to compete with the best kids out there, please email or call me. We have strong pitching and catching but we all know, there's always room for a top pitcher. We are looking for athletes.
Practice for younger groups starts tonight, Monday the 11th. Get with your respective coach for your practice schedule. I will be meeting with all parents and coaches this week to discuss the plan for both sides and schedules.
Anyone needing a private workout can contact Sean Wilson at 407-509-3302 or email at Sean.Wilson@thefuturerebels.com and I will get it arranged (discreetly if you like.)
We are very excited announce to the public our New Practice Facility. We will continue to practice in Apopka for at least the next year but we have just signed a 5 year contract with a 5 year optional extension to use a large portion of the property to grow our amazing program. The deal includes the use of the current ball field, the approval to convert the tennis courts to a multi-use field that will include 5 to 7 lighted hitting tunnels, shaded pitching practice facility, and the availability to add several practice infields.
We will be announcing volunteer dates to help us get this new location off to great start.
What an exciting time to be a Rebel.
Your Future is in your hands, be the Rebel in charge!
Good morning everyone. I just wanted to take a second to congratulate each team that went to Savannah this weekend. We saw some coaches that we don't normally see and I was extremely proud of the performance each and every team put on. A special shout out to the 18U group that attended! They went 5-0 and showed what FR nation is all about. I could not be any more proud of the girls and their teamwork to get the job done. I also appreciate the teams stepping up and helping Team Bucked Up who was short girls especially the three from Ed's team who stayed late on Sunday to play an extra game and help them. That too showed leadership and teamwork! Also a thank you to the parents this weekend. I know it was a long weekend but I felt well worth the trip and time. We kept a list of what coaches we saw there and next year we can email them early to get even more exposure with them. Thanks again to all who participated. Have a great day today!
Thanks you to everyone for exceeding the Goals of
The Youth Foundation of Tomorrow's Future, because
