The Atlanta Flames, one of Georgia 's oldest and most respected fast pitch softball organizations, is pleased to announce the addition of a 12U team. This team will be led by Coaches Todd Ryman and Alan Mothner. We will also be seeking coaching assistance from professional coaches as well, including freshly graduated college players. We will play and practice out of Murphey Candler Park as well as Dunwoody HS. We are currently in active discussions with a couple other parks outside the perimeter to help assist our players in these areas. We also have our very own indoor facility off I285 and Chamblee Dunwoody road that will help us facilitate practices during the cold months or as a viable practice back up in the case of inclement weather. We plan to offer carpool pick up locations for girls that live some distance from the practice locations, this should make it accessible for anyone that wants to join us no matter their locale. More details below on the organization and facilities.
The 12U Atlanta Flames will plan to play A/B travel softball. We will plan to play in USSSA, USFA, Camsports, and ASA tournaments with the goal of securing a berth to a season ending world series type of tournament in July of 2014. We will respect the feeder ball schedule this fall and limit practices until the season is complete. Our goal will to just a have few practices and team meetings and then try to get into a few tournaments in mid October through November (weather permitting). We will then have winter workouts and pick up an intense travel tournament schedule next March.
We will be hosting open tryouts this Sunday August 19th from 1-3pm on Field 4 at Murphey Candler Park . We will be announcing alternate dates for next week shortly once field space is secured. We will also be available for private evaluations as well. To register for tryouts please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404 663 2055. All inquiries and discussions will be kept strictly confidential and treated with the utmost professionalism.Please visit our website at http://www.flamesfastpitch.com for more background on us and other helpful information.
