Review for Red Raider Softball Inc, Gaithersburg, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Red Raiders is a fantastic organization dedicated to the sport of softball. We found them about two years ago when we were trying to find a team that would give our daughter more time in the circle. We initially signed up with their rec program while we played on another travel team so she could pitch more. It turned out the rec coach was also the coach of the 12U travel team and he needed a pitcher. Fate had intervened. We joined Red Raiders full time - travel and rec - and have never looked back. I became the assistant coach and helped to build that 12U team. I have since become the head coach of the 12U this year and have roped my husband into being the assistant coach. The Red Raiders has become our second home.
The main thing to know about the Red Raiders is that they are dedicated to softball only and how to develop the skills and knowledge of the game in every girl who steps foot through their doors. They bring in experts to share knowledge, they run clinics, they have the travel coaches share tips with rec coaches. Anything to help each and every girl walk away knowing more than she came in knowing. The Red Raiders organization has high expectations for every girl: for rec girls they want them to have fun and learn more about the game. For travel girls, they want them to win while becoming more proficient at the sport.
I love the Red Raiders and have never regretted the decision to come to a place where every girl is welcome no matter her level of experience. I love the Red Raiders for their dedication to the game of softball. I love the Red Raiders for making it so my daughter has a place where she can become the best pitcher she can be.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them get a bigger indoor facility so more girls could practice inside when the weather is uncooperative.
