Xplosion welcomes athletes who are committed to advancing the skills of advanced softball in preparation for success in high school competition and in college recruitment. The program strives to create an atmosphere to develop the character and drive for each athlete to succeed as an individual while supporting the success of a team. We have two levels of play: Open in which anyone is eligible to tryout and house-based, in which our players live within the SYA Little League boundaries: Clifton, Centreville, and parts of Fairfax.

Coach Donnie Dutton, who is also the Centreville High School varsity coach, leads our 18u/A Varsity team. Coach Dutton has a team manager and two additional professional assistant coaches who are part of his leadership team. There is no parent coaching on this team and is coached only by professional coaches. This team is comprised of athletes who have already played on their high school team and are preparing for college recruitment at the Division 1 level. Coach Donnie's team competes in regional events during the summer and fall, and offers winter training in preparation for high school tryouts.
Coach Wyatt is our 14u/A coach. Coach Wyatt has two fellow parent-coaches who have worked with him for four years and are well equipped to support the development of each athlete. Coach Wyatt and his assistant coaches promote training and development of our athletes with the goal to teach each athlete the fundamentals of competitive softball so each athlete's transition to their future school team is seamless. Because of this goal, the team is comprised of primarily 8th graders.
SYA Little League-Based Travel Program
These travel teams are based on players within our softball house - Little League - program. We expect teams from 16u, 14u, 12u, and 10u to be formed. Goal is a 2-3 tournaments each season along with our house schedule and weekly clinics and participation in the winter workouts with your team. You must live within our SYA Little League boundary or attend one of our schools.
