Welcome to the 2020 Season
On behalf of our entire team and coaching staff, I want to welcome you to our upcoming season. Our belief is that we’ll continue to learn the game of softball and compete each day. We look forward to you joining us.

Every student-athlete must submit the proper athletic paperwork prior to the beginning of the season. This includes reviewing the athletic code, filling out the proper permission forms and getting a physical. This paperwork is available on the high school athletic website.
Our winter workout program is on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM in the SLVHS weight room. These workouts are not specific to softball and will improve overall fitness for all athletes. We focus on overall strength, flexibility and injury prevention. Workouts begin the first Monday or Wednesday in November and continue through the second week of January.
We encourage all of our student-athletes to participate in other sports during the fall and winter seasons. We feel you become a better athlete playing multiple sports and an athlete who participates in different sports gains the perspectives and values unique to each. We feel there is less risk of overuse injuries and burnout playing multiple sports.
We encourage all high school students to play competitive summer softball at the 16U/18U level.
SPIN Fastpitch is our off-season program. SPIN combines SLV players with players from other local high schools, to create a unique and fun learning environment. It’s a great opportunity for our players to continue developing skills by mixing with experienced players from other schools. It’s a great growth opportunity. We feel our athletes gain a competitive advantage by playing together and they get the opportunity to learn from other high school coaches and players. SPIN develops unity and contributes to our overall success.
We hope you’ll join us. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
