Our Mission:

KP Pride has always been focused on preparing players for high school softball. We will retain that focus in 2021 while adding a college showcase team. With so many solid HS players in the pipeline, it’s time to help them land in a college program that‘s right for them. We’ll provide this additional service at a reasonable cost.

 

Our team alignment for next season will be ONE team at each level below:

18u College Showcase team

18u Regional team

14u Regional team

12u Regional team

10u Developmental squad 

 

What’s the difference between the two 18u teams?

18u College Showcase: Players on the showcase team must play in HS and intend to play in college. They’ll have the most challenging schedule and the most extensive travel. Most play will be within New England but we are looking for an event in the Mid Atlantic region or New York. (Exact schedule TBD) They’ll play at multiple college showcase events. Players will learn how to market themselves to collegiate programs in addition to having access to our extensive recruiting network. It is possible for any high school age player to earn a spot on this team. We’re looking for the most talented and motivated players in our organization. Pursuing a college softball experience should be the players ultimate goal.

 

18u Regional: Most members of this team will be players who are  one year away from college showcase age. It’s a great spot for top 14u and 16u eligible players who want to play above their age level, facing older competition. Young players should play here if they want to be pushed to the next level via our instruction and challenging schedule. The goal for most will be to work hard for a year, grow, improve and earn a spot on the 2022 showcase team. They’ll play within the New England region. 18u eligible players who do not want to play in HS or college can also make this roster. 

 

14u and 12u teams will play regional competition as they have for the last several years. We tend to promote kids above their age levels so they face more difficult competition, accelerating their development. 

 

Our 10u developmental squad will benefit from our thorough practices. Our practices build the skills that allow motivated kids to make the jump to the next level. This group will play a few games at our home complex in Plainville, but they won't have an extensive tournament schedule. If they're ready, at the end of the season they'll play a home tournament to have that experience before moving to the 12u level. 

 

Our annual fees:

18u College Showcase $1,200

18u Regional $900

14u Regional $700

12u Regional $500

10u Developmental squad $250

 

About our fees: KP Pride fees are very low. We feel the value of instruction given surpasses the cost. We’ve never turned a player away because of inability to pay. If cost is a concern, please contact us privately. We are a non-profit organization. The only org members who receive a stipend are our college age coaches. They play a valuable role as instructors and role models for our players. It’s not reasonable to expect these young adults to volunteer their time when they could be earning actual money elsewhere. 

 

Please contact us with any questions you may have.
