SAA Illinois Sluggers Philosophy

We have a healthy balance of building and growing the person and the softball athlete within a competitive environment.  We have over 30 years of running a very successful fastpitch program.  We strive to play at the most competitive levels.  

• To instill a positive attitude and a love of the game
• To demonstrate the values of sportsmanship, fair play, and being a great teammate for both the players and parents
• To provide opportunities beyond high school to play in college
• To develop each of the girls skills in the sport of softball
• To communicate all necessary information with commissioners, managers, and parents

• To provide all Recreational/House league softball girls an opportunity to play at a more competitive level


Travel teams practice during the off-season and play in tournaments throughout the season. Teams are formed at the 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u, 13u 14u, 15u, 16u & 18u age divisions.  Check out the individual team sites for more information. Teams are formed in July and August each year for the new season which begins in late August and September.  Please do not hesitate to contact us mid year with any inquiries.  Private tryouts and open tryouts are both available.  Please contact Dan Long at dlong12@me.com for more information on our travel teams.
