Large-sized suburban HS in upstate NY in which nearly 50 percent of our families qualify for free or reduced lunch.
In order to keep costs reasonable, we fund-raise and travel every other year for softball spring training in a warmer, more favorable climate.
Our players look forward to their opportunity to make the trip south when they are on the Varsity team. Playing on quality fields in a warm weather climate will help to ensure that we are ready for the challenges that await us when we return home.
The funds raised through this project will be devoted to covering the second deposit for accommodations at one of The Ripken Experience's properties, Myrtlewood Villas. The players will share villas (seven to a unit, plus 1 coach) and their 6 night stay will allow them to play games in sunny Myrtle Beach while NY fields are possibly still snow-covered.
This once-in-a-lifetime experience fills the players with excitement and anticipation.
The camaraderie of spending 7 days together as a team will invariably result in a more unified group, and hopefully translate to increased wins for the season. Our girls are beyond excited to participate in Spring Training this year!
