Who are the Lady Shamrocks?
The Stateline Lady Shamrocks is designed for the softball player who wants to receive the absolute best softball training in the area but is not ready for the jump to a full-travel program. This is a local, non-travel program with an emphasis on keeping the game fun while learning the skills needed to make it to the next level. The Stateline Sports Group has kept the cost of the program very affordable, giving you the best value for learning the types of skills that are only taught at the club level, all within a supportive environment surrounded by other softball players that are eager to learn and improve.
An Organization That Grows with You
The Lady Shamrock program is part of the Stateline Sports Group ladder of fastpitch softball programs. The Lady Shamrock program gives the players the opportunity to train and play at their goal skill level. The Lady Shamrock program is the best fit for the class C and recreational level players. The uniqueness of the Stateline Sports Group fastpitch softball programs is that players can move up and down in our programs from our local non-travel Lady Shamrocks (class C & recreational) to our Stateline Fury travel (class A & B) program.
If you sign up for the Lady Shamrocks you are a part of the program, WE DO NOT TURN ANY PLAYERS AWAY! Once signed up, your player will train by age group and be placed on a team that is best suited for their skill level and softball goals. We will never turn a player away from the game and will do our best to allow you to enjoy the game at a level that is in-line with the players' ability and goals.
Top Tier Teams Create Top Tier Players
The best way to develop players is to challenge them. At each age group, we create a tier of teams as it relates to competitive play only. All our teams will have the same resources available to them and have the same access to our facilities and training. The tiers will only apply to the level of teams they play.
For those players that want to play on our top-tier teams and play in local class C tournaments, we will hold tryouts for our Shamrock players only. If a player doesn’t make that team, they will of course still remain in the program just on a team that matches their current skill level. This will allow the player to continue to develop and climb that ladder next season if they want to.
The players that make the team we will put them on what we are calling our “class C club team” as long as there are enough players at that level to fill out a competitive team. This team will play in local tournaments in addition to the Stars of Tomorrow league, the Fall league, and the tournaments included with these leagues. All with the goal of continuing to develop the players so they can continue to grow their skills and possibly make the jump to a Fury team if they wish to.
Another big difference between the Lady Shamrocks and other local-only organizations is the additional training players receive from the most experienced and highly trained softball staff in the Stateline area. All year long your player will be taught different softball skills and techniques through a variety of methods, such as team clinics, camps, and scrimmages.
Then in the off-season, our players take part in our program training sessions that are built to develop a solid base of fundamental and advanced softball skill sets. Each off-season training session begins with getting the players’ measurables, such as speed, throwing velocity, exit velocity, etc. We end the off-season training by measuring them again to gauge their progress and highlight areas for improvement.
Also during our off-season training, players take part in a strength and conditioning program developed by the University of Wisconsin’s Athletic Department designed to increase a player’s athleticism with a focus on softball-specific movements. Better athletes make better softball players!
We pair this with weekly skill sessions and position-specific training, all designed to help our players build a solid softball foundation. We cover the basics such as throwing, hitting/bunting, and fielding mechanics all the way to the more advanced skills such as slap hitting and situational awareness.
Between the measurables, strength, and agility, and weekly sessions…our off-season program is second to none!
And the coaches get training too! All Lady Shamrock coaches go through our coaches' training program with the Stateline Sports Group "Next Level Training." This program is year-round and features monthly sessions with collegiate softball coaches and clinics based on specific strategies, including how to build a successful practice regimen. This will ensure that your player will be coached in the correct manner in all aspects of the game.
All the Games You’ll Play
The Lady Shamrocks season consists of 20+ league games in the Stars of Tomorrow league, 15+ league games in the SSG fall league in addition to 3 to 4 local tournaments. We also facilitate multiple scrimmage games for our teams and we have partnered with local colleges to expose our players to softball at some of the highest levels with college games held at our facilities. And we even get the girls out on the field with the college players.
The Lady Shamrocks program gives your player the best opportunity to learn the game of softball from the best coaches around and continue to grow their skills all while keeping the game fun!
The Best Value Around
Our goal is to create a home for anyone to learn to play softball the right way and the Lady Shamrocks is by far the best value you are going to find at the club level. Our annual fee of $295 includes the two leagues, tournaments, a full uniform, and access to ALL our training! Our off-season training program itself is a $300 dollar value, so you essentially get a full uniform, games, and facilities for FREE! Also, our flexible payment plans allow you to space out the annual fee to reduce the impact on your budget.
We are able to keep costs this low because of our strong commitment to fundraising. We have three fundraising events a year in which ALL Stateline Sports Group programs take part in. Fundraising is done at a program level and not by teams, this ensures there are no haves and have-nots. And any increase in resources is felt across all programs and age levels and not by individual teams. We also ask that you volunteer at games throughout the year to help lessen the costs that games and tournaments have on the programs.
These fundraising and volunteer efforts make it possible for us to not only keep costs low but also offer hardship scholarships to those in need. This helps guarantee that no one goes without access to a great softball program because of a lack of resources.
Make Fun a Part of the Game
Become a part of a committed program with the best access to training in the area and give your player the opportunity to reach their fullest potential and have a great time doing it! The Lady Shamrocks program is the all-around best way to enjoy the game of softball and be taught the game the right way all while keeping it fun for the players.
