Welcome to the VA Xplosion 12u Fast Pitch Softball Team Website
Our athletes competed in 28 games last fall and placed 2nd in 3 of our 6 tournaments!
VA Xplosion 12u is an experienced northern Virginia 12u select fast pitch softball team under the umbrella of Southern Youth Association (SYA) with the guidance of a college-level coach as part of our non-parent and parent-based adult leadership. Our youth athletes share a common goal of learning the game and preparing for high school competition. Visit our USSSA tournament website.
Our team needs a starting athlete who has a solid bat and can contribute on the field. Sign up for a tryout by clicking here or email the coach for a private tryout before one of our weekly workouts at our training facility across from the Chantilly Costco. All inquires are treated as confidential.
About our Team
Our yearly cycle features a healthy balance of tournaments, scrimmages, professional training, and individual development time. We take advantage of professional agility trainers, professional college-level coaches, and partner with HS and college players to expose our players to advanced athletes.
The team competes in 5 fall tournaments, 4 one-day indoor winter tournaments, 5 spring tournaments, and 2 summer tournaments all at varying levels of competition. We endeavor to compete locally in Northern Virginia, but the team occasionally competes in Maryland or Pennsylvania if there are no local playing opportunities.
The team holds practice 1 to 2 days per week near Centreville HS during the tournament season plus we offer an optional special skills meet-up day. We leverage the Xplosion indoor training facility adjacent the Chantilly Costco and other local training centers during the 5 month off-season 1 to 3 days per week to develop our pitching/catching, our hitting and general skills, plus offer professional strength and agility training.
The team is dormant most of November, December, and August, plus all major federal holiday weekends.
Our roster is comprised of dedicated athletes in 6th and 7th grade graduating in 2023 or 2024 who all have prior select softball experience. Our families live in Fairfax, Loudoun, and Price William counties.
Team fees are very reasonable and economical for the value received. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our team welcomes college-level athletes to share in the operation of our team and the development of our athletes. These internships are for young professionals seeking experience working with a professional youth athletic organization. Our program is not paid.
