    The Ohio Blast Organization is excited to announce their tryout sessions for the 2020-2021 season, and we are looking forward to building on our continued success!! We will continue to have teams in all divisions, but are looking to add teams, mangers and players in all divisions as well. If you are new to travel ball, or an experienced player or coach looking for a change, we would love to meet you! To register for any of the sessions listed below, please follow the link provided, or feel free to reach out to the manager or contact for your age division. If you are unable to attend any of the tryout sessions listed, you may be able to schedule a private session with them. We have been asked about entire teams moving to the Blast and will consider as well!

    Q: Is their any more detailed player or pitcher information needed?
    A: Yes. After completing the online tryout registration form, there are links provided where you can download a player profile form, and a pitcher profile form if needed, and bring them to the tryouts with you!
    Both forms will be available for completion at tryouts as well!

    Q: Will we consider more than 1 team in an age division if the opportunity presents itself to do so?
    A: Yes. We do have a couple managers from other organizations who are considering bringing their entire teams to Ohio Blast for the 2020-2021 season.
    However, even if they do, we are still holding tryouts for those divisions, and actively looking to add and/or fill teams with quality players and managers.

    Q: Is it OK if you register your daughter for more than 1 tryout session?
    A: Yes! Absolutely! It may actually be beneficial for her to tryout and see different players and different caliber players.
    Additionally, if you feel she had a sub-par tryout the first time around, you may feel she needs an additional one - that may better represent her abilities.

    Congratulations Ohio Blast 12u-Dado for their Championship victory last weekend in the Cinderella Classic in North Ridgeville with a 6-1 win over Valley Extreme 07! The win gave team Dado their 3rd Championship in the 12U division this season, along with a runner-up finish, and 2 more semi-finals appearances as well! With 2 more tournaments this season, they look to finish strong heading into tryouts!

    Welcome Todd Smith, as a new Ohio Blast manager (15U) for the upcoming season!

    If interest and response remain strong, and we can fill a second (solid) team - we would consider adding a second 15U team and have a manager interested as well!
