 Welcome to Olentangy Phoenix Travel Softball!

Olentangy Phoenix Fastpitch is committed to providing a high quality softball experience for its players and families. Players will receive the opportunity to develop basic, intermediate, and advanced softball skills as well as knowledge of the game required to play in high school and beyond.

As a community-based select softball program, Phoenix Fastpitch is a step above recreational programs. Players must attend tryouts and meet minimum skill criteria to be selected to join a Phoenix team. In addition, the program is looking for players with positive attitude, selflessness, and the dedication to improve their skills in both a team setting and individually. The expectation of a Phoenix player and her family is to be willing to commit more time and effort to the team in order to compete against the stronger competition they will face.

To enhance a Phoenix player’s experience, the program will provide:

·         Training for all coaches, including concussion and safety training

·         Player clinics and/or camps specifically for Phoenix players

·         Year-round strategy which includes fall practice and indoor winter practice

·         A positive and safe learning environment for all players

·         Year-round communication to keep parents and players informed of team and program updates as well as additional opportunities to improve softball skills 

2024 Season:

Phoenix will be comprised of teams at 10U, 12U, 14U, and 16U. More teams could be developed if we have enough talent and experienced coaches.

Fees are $700 payable in four installments, including the non-refundable deposit at the time of acceptance. There is no fee to try out.

Phoenix teams will participate in the GS3 (Grand Slam) Softball League. This league will include many teams from Central Ohio communities.  

All age groups will play double headers early June to early July 2024 with league tournaments in mid-July.
There will be home and away games that require some local travel.

In addition, teams will play tournaments as follows:

10U - 3 - 5 weekend tournaments
12U - 3 - 6 weekend tournaments
14U - 4 - 7 weekend tournaments
16U - 5 - 8 weekend tournaments
