    Welcome to the 2020 10u and 12u coaches polls. This is the 11th consecutive year I have run these polls. I started running these polls when my dd was at 9u and now she is a sophomore playing in college. I have seen most all there is to see in the travel ball world as a coach from winning ASA Easterns at 10u to the PGF National Championship at 16U. I have a strong passion for the 10 and 12u divisions as they were the most fun for me as a dad and a coach. Here is how I will run things.

    *1 Pre Season Poll, which will be held the week following the Spano Dome Tournament.
    *Regular Season weekly polls will folllow starting the week after the April 25th weekend. Votes should be sent to me by either PM or Email. jeffreylsteiner@gmail.com Coaches that have my number can text me their votes also.
    *This is a Coaches Poll for OHIO teams only, with only coaches or a designated person being allowed to vote. For the purposes of these polls, an Ohio team is one who is sanctioned in Ohio as a resident team. Sending me a copy of your ASA-USA sanction card is proof enough if teams challenges where a team is from. It does not matter if the team has multiple players from other states.
    *Each team is only allowed 1 representative (Coach) from their team to cast a vote on behalf of their team. SO get on the same page with your coaching staff so I am not getting multiple coaches from the same team trying to vote.

    * Send to me in a #1 - #10 format looking like this:
    1. Big City Bombers
    2. Small Town Snails
    10. Southside Slappers
    You get the idea..... You must submit 10 teams. If you submit anything less than 10 teams I will not count your votes for that week.
    *I will assign pts as follows: #1 = 10pts, #2 = 9pts, etc down to #10 = 1pt
    *Make sure you put your name and what team you are representing when sending your vote. I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANONYMOUS VOTES!!
    * Feel free to include some commentary on opposing teams. I appreciate getting info on the teams from around the state.
    * I will keep the voting completely confidential. I do not discuss what coaches voted for who.
    * Over the years, I have had a few coaches that have had agendas in their voting style from week to week, but for the most part, I get honest opinions of how teams are ranked. I occasionally ask questions as well to coaches that I see are intentionally leaving out a certain team or has an axe to grind.
    * Votes will be needed to be sent in by Tuesday at midnight to assure your vote is counted in the weekly poll. I will try to always post results by noon on Wednesday. ( I do travel quite a bit for my job so sometimes I am a bit late but never more than a day.
    * In the past I have been told that "Only the big organizations get voted for and how can a local team get recognized?" If your team is good enough to show well at bigger tournaments and continues to play good competition, you will get noticed in the polls.

    I will put a "call out post" for votes on the Sunday of the Spano Tourny for both 12u and 10u.
    Good Luck to all teams in 2019!

    With the 12U Spano Dome Tourney being held this weekend. I will be asking 12U Coaches to submit their Top 10 between Sunday night and late Tuesday night. I know not everybody plays at the Spano winter tournament, but in the past this has always been the big indoor tournament that allows people from around the state to see who are the teams to be reckon with for the upcoming outdoor season.

    The Ohio Storm '08 is a true 11U team in our first year of 12U. This team struggled a little bit in early September with the bigger ball, and pitching from 40 feet. The team has worked hard through the fall and winter. Although the team has played well this past fall and over the winter, this team is still a work in progress. Looking forward to a competitive spring/summer schedule.

    Coming off a good year in 10U, the team had a record of 60-19-4, played in 17 events with 6 championships, 2 runner up finishes, and 2 3rd-place finishes. The team had a 5th place finish out of 23 teams at 10U East Nationals in Johnson City Tennessee (1. Atlanta Vipers, 2. Carolina Elite, 3. Team NC, 4. Wisconsin Lightning, 5. Ohio Storm '08).
