Mission Statement

The mission of ESAA's Storm Softball Program is to provide an opportunity for ESAA players to compete at a higher level of competition. We aim to develop players that will participate at the high school level and beyond. We are committed to continuing the strong sense of community that is the hallmark of ESAA. We believe we offer a very competitively priced travel softball program, largely due to the generosity of the coaches in donating their valuable time.

ALL FEES TO BE COLLECTED BY MAY 1st, suspension of player will incur for lack of payment.
