Don't forget Central Ohio Lady Vipers!!
Vipers bats are sick!!!!
Trainwrecker ... while I'm not a supporter of polls for 10 and 12 year olds and so you'll never see me plugging the team I help coach, with all due respect, while the competition at Spano was very good this past weekend, a lot of the top teams in the state did not participate.
Lot of folks jump in the wagon before they hitch the horses, just sayin We will know better this summer!
like who ?
As i scroll through the last years threads of 10u and 12u teams and weed out the 99 and 02 teams i think other than a few teams down south and maybe 1 or 2 up north .but wood be shocked if any of them would nock off my top 3 picks as far as pre season goes ....
new to posting but long time reader i think polls at 10u an 12u are fun because at 14u no one on here seems to care as much ? so just think its fun ! no big deal
For starters ... Classics, Heart of Ohio, Buckeye Heat, Wizards, Hawks, etc. all will have tough 12-U teams I am sure ... hard to tell anything till we all get outdoors ...
Your right Coach, when you see bombs hitting the ceiling indoors for doubles and singles its a whole different ball game outdoors,like we said to early to tell.
very good point .... but not sure im ready to say them teams are top 3 ohio team beaters pre season .they were no were on the radar last year that i can see .... no disrespect to the teams mention above just didnt see them come out an stir up the top 10 from 2012 (last year ) .... and please remember we are just talking preseason .....i agree once weather breaks and teams start playing out doors things will change all though not alot changed from last years pre poll to end of year ...a few teams but not many.
Some of those teams played each other already in the fall. Just saying.
Also, the girls on the teams change. A couple players here or there can make a huge difference. You can't strictly use last seasons poll, because very few 11's cracked the top 10. If I remember correctly only Thunder Elite and Ice Orange (now Lasers) did it more than 1 or 2 times.
1. Lasers Orange
2. Thunder Elite
3. HOO Fear Factor
5. Ice Black
6. Valley Extreme
7. Ohio Storm 01
8. Ohio Blast
9. Static Morris
10. Ofc Heat
IMHO.....these are great I'm sure Buckeye Heat and a lot more will be on the list.
01 fire great list !
I forgot about valley extreme !!!!
How did Ice Black drop to 5 and a 01 team make the list,either self promotion or pure speculation.thats why these things are not realistic until the season starts outdoors.
Fire01 is not with any of the teams listed. Storm '01 is a very good team and has played Ice Black at least 1 time, but I think it is 2 times. I am sure the Ice coaches will confirm they are good. This is just what I have heard I am not associated with either team.
hey okiedad1966 its just for fun ? throw a list up and see how your pre perdictions hold up when we do get out doors ! what else do we do in feb.... an self promotion is all good . if you think your team can hang y not add them in there !
try it !
Self promotion, see the blazers logo upper left.... JMHO.....lol
Just a Parent of a decent player ,don't need to speak for her team ,they'll do just fine without my talk.Seen a few of 01's mentioned,fundimentaly sound just lack physical size to compete with 00's in my opinion.
Ohio Storm and Grand Slam are two '01 teams we have a ton of respect for after either scrimmaging or playing them a couple of times each this year. Both will be able to hang with most of the "top" '00 teams ... similar to what Thunder Elite '00 and Ice Orange did last year. While there is generally a difference in the size of 11-U and 12-U players, there are exceptions to that and some 11-U teams can make up for that with their fundamentals, a really good pitcher, and excellent coaching. Those two teams have all of that. I am sure Lasers Green would fall into that group as well, though we have only played them once and I know they didn't have their typical game.
Coach,Your Ice team dosn't have many bigger girls, but can knock the ---- out of the ball,and is excellent in the feild,and your obviosly one of the better teams in this years 00's,the established org's usually have the best of 11u players,Ice's Lasers etc and are allways a threat,after that its good coaching and hard work for the other 11's to have success
I've seen at this point Fear Factor, TE, VE and Wizard Elite 00 (although not on the list, they should be)... The Storm 01 belongs on the list. Very good team, I'd suggest not looking at the 01 and taking them lightly lol.
