10U V-S Venom Team 3rd and 4th Grade

The Vinton-Shellsburg softball coaches started a brand new travel team this year called V-S Venom. Last year, as a coaching staff, they decided that they would help train and develop the community’s youth to help make the softball program thrive in future years to come. Three age groups were formed to make up the teams.

A 10U team that consists of 3rd and 4th graders, a 12U team that consists of 5th and 6th graders, and a 14U team that consists of 7th graders.

Practices began March 5th and met every Tuesday and Thursday for 1 to 1 ½ hours. They scheduled in 3 tournaments and 1 double header with another corresponding age group from a different town. This travel ball season will end just in time for kids to still participate in the Park and Rec Softball league’s season.

Their plan is to continue working with V-S youth each year to help build the softball program. Look for a letter in your child’s Friday folder this fall to participate next season 2020.
