Buckeye Heat Tryouts 2018/2019

Discussion in 'Retired Tryouts Post' started by LADY_KNIGHTS, Jul 12, 2018.



    The Buckeye Heat Fastpitch organization has been an active member of the fastpitch community since its founding in 1998 as the Worthington Heat. From a one team organization, we have grown to support teams at every age group from 10U through 23U. Our teams are based out of Central Ohio, but compete at venues throughout the state and nation. We believe that serious competitive fastpitch should be fun as well as educational, and try to select girls, families, and coaches that share that belief.

    This year the Buckeye Heat will not be holding a large organizational tryout like in years past. We plan on doing several more geographical located tryouts where several age groups will come together. Over the next few weeks our coaches will post in this thread where their tryouts will take place and what their team needs, type of schedule and commitment they are expecting.

    With 20 years experience as an organization, and well over 100 young athletes who have gone on to play at the collegiate level, the Buckeye Heat organization will help you reach your max potential and accomplish your goals.

    If you have any questions about or organization or teams, please feel to contact me at ksy2268@aol.com
