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.

Make up tryouts for the 2021 Storm season will be Thursday, August 27, at Edgebrook Park. Please note that pre-registration is required this year; contact Jeff Fraterrigo at jcfrat@hotmail.com to schedule your daughter's spot for any of our 2021 teams - 10U,12U,14U or 16U.

Please have your player ready to go at the scheduled start times. We will provide softballs and space to allow the players to warm up. Players should bring their own glove, mask, and bat. If there are any questions, or if you have an interest in joining the Storm program as a coach, your contact is also Jeff Fraterrigo, Storm commissioner, at jcfrat@hotmail.com

We are proud of our Storm program and look forward to seeing you at tryouts!
