Our team of 6th and 7th graders graduating in 2023 or 2024 has an opening for one to two 2005 birth-year athletes with prior select softball experience.  We have a specific need for another pitcher, plus additional support in the outfield and middle infield.  Contact us at xplosion2005@gmail.com for more information or sign up for a tryout by clicking here.


About our Team

Our team competes in 5 fall tournaments, 4 one-day indoor winter tournaments, 6 spring tournaments, and 2 summer tournaments all at varying levels of competition.  We practice 1 to 2 days plus an optional special skills meet-up day. We are dormant most of November, December, and August, plus all major federal holiday weekends.  We take advantage of professional agility trainers, and partner with HS and college players to expose our players to advanced athletes. We leverage the Xplosion indoor training facility and other local training centers during the off-season to develop our pitching/catching, as well as our hitting and general skills.   We focus on learning the game in a positive environment with the goal to have each player ready for future Middle and High School tryouts, and to have fun along the way.
