Our Training Facility:

 

 

The USSSA New York Pride fast pitch softball was founded in 2014. The goal of every travel softball player should be to someday take their game to the collegiate level. What stands us apart from other teams in our area is a clear cut game plan and process to help your young athlete achieve their goals.
 
USSSA New York Pride players  will play in a USSSA national level tournament, plus travel to tournaments throughout the northeast. In addition, our athletes will travel to various age appropriate collegiate showcases to showcase each player to pertinent college scouts.
We expect a lot out of our players and will only choose players with not only the skill but with the mindset to represent our team. Our players must be dedicated to softball and be willing to put in the time necessary to achieve the next level.
We are honored to have been selected to represent the USSSA Pride program. We will proudly wear USSSA Pride official pro fast pitch gear.
 
Our facility in Clarence, NY offers two individual training fields, multiple cages and pitching lanes, conditioning and nutrition counseling, and some of the most sought after trainers in WNY at your disposal.
 
We encourage all athletes with these goals in mind to attend our tryouts or contact us for more information.
