Under 13 Italian National Program : try-out in Sala Baganza , July 20th 2013
Thanks to all friends from Wesseling , Germany, for accepting our invitation and sharing their passion for softball with us.
We wish them all the best for the upcoming season and hope to meet soon again on a softball field !
It was really nice to see some good old friends and work with them in softball again in Germany. The German National Team is really working hard to reach the edge of the highest European level with their young but motivated team.
Thanks a lot for having me with them as a hitting instructor and in Paderborn for the German Softball Academy in January.
With great pleasure I can announce that our BULLS player ELISA SARAGAGLIA is going to join the Spanish club team DRIDMAS RIVAS in Madrid to spend some months with them, practice and hopefully play for the first part of this season.
Elisa will be staying in Spain for 4 months on an international students’ exchange promoted by her university in Milan but she won’t miss practice and playing time while she is in Madrid.
Thanks a lot to the Spanish friends of DRIDMAS RIVAS softball club for their support and all they will be able to do for Elisa.
Keep up the good work, Eli !
Dear softball friends,
it’s been a while since I last updated CoachlillyBlog. As usual life keeps us very busy and the last months of 2012 were again full of things to do and nice plans to fulfil.
It will be the first year of the BULLS in Softball Division II ( A2 ). We know it is not going to be easy but we are surely going to battle for every game and have a lot of fun together.
It will also be a year of expansion for our club: together with the ladies’ team we will have two ( maybe three ? ) girls’ teams ( U13 , U16 and possibly U21 ), one team of MINIS ( 5 – 9 yr old ) and one team of U13 boys. Our school promotion program goes on, involving primary and elementary schools in our town and the surrounding area.
Another year of international softball is ahead, again with cooperations around Europe and Little League E.M.E.A. finals.
Most of all I wish us all friends in softball lots of energy, enthusiasm, hope and faith : this is what will keep us going and give every single day sense and meaning.
Happy 2013 !
The team Wesseling Vermins is 2012 German Champion.
Congratulations to my best friend Chrissi, coach Dehmel and all the girls on the team !
Looking at the smiles on these faces….we can really say WE MADE IT !
The BULLS will be playing in A2 division next year !
Thanks to all the girls, their families, all our supporters and friends all over the world !
Thanks to my team for being a great bunch of smart and passionate young ladies dedicated to softball !
The Bulls have just reached the finals of the playoffs which will be played on 29 – 30 September.
Great to be with you, girls !
