National Softball Association

The Charlotte Starz, along with the NC National Softball Association, are forming a new instructional program for young 8-U softball players born in 2003 or later. This program compliments traditional recreation leagues by offering advanced instruction and competitive opportunities.

This new instructional league will be coached by the players of the Charlotte Starz 16-U Showcase team. These high school athletes will work under the guidance of the Starz coaching staff to teach league players advanced fundamentals in throwing, fielding, hitting, and base running. This is a unique opportunity to learn new skills from young ladies who aspire to play in college and yet still remember their first days in the game.

Some of these young ladies are actually instuctors!

This flexible program will offer a total of 18 instructional opportunities over nine consecutive weekends in March and April. Sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at James Martin Middle School in the University area of Charlotte. Players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible but attendance is not required. There is a nominal $5 fee due at the beginning of each session your child attends which will be paid directly to the student-coaches.

During the five weekends in March, sessions will focus on advanced fundamental skills through the use of time-tested drills. Players will be evaluated and given individual coaching to aid in their development. In April, players will be divided into teams and each session will feature scrimmage siutations and games to help each player develop a better understanding of the game. The program will conclude in late April with the chance to compete against teams in similar programs from other cities in the region.

In addition to the $5 fee per session, there is a one-time registration fee of $30 which covers insurance, team equipment and jersey. We will hold final in-person registrations on Saturday, February 25th and Sunday February 26th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM each day at James Martin Middle School. This is a great opportunity to meet and interact with Starz players and coaches. You may download the paper registration form here.

Because we expect this to be a very popular program and space may be limited, online registration is strongly encouraged.

The Charlotte Starz have a long tradition of excellence
