I think it’s always good to have my older kid tryout for other teams in the event the current team folds or some other drama happens. At the very least, she gets to see other competition and it motivates her.

I’ve checked softball connected, I’ve been going to the various teams websites that I’m familiar with but I’m wondering if anyone can offer up a few quality programs that are non-parent coach programs.

We are in the Chicagoland area.

I just started looking at recent regional and national tournament results and noticed Illinois Chill were competitive in a few. Definitely worth checking out.

Chill is a very small very competitive highly respected program. Tightly controlled by their head man. Great recruiting, good tournament placement.

Anyone have experience with Bo Jackson Blast out of Lockport, Wheatland spikes out of Naperville, Wasco Diamonds, Crush Tidal Wave out of Barrington?

Have played in Chicago land high end tournaments for the last 10 yrs. Bo Jackson has never been in a tournament we played in. Spikes and crush tidal wave are a low/mid B organization, Naperville and wasco diamonds have some good teams at younger ages but more of a high B at the recruiting ages. Better organizations in the area that are more consistent but not at bandits/chill level include new Lennox and sparks.
