The future of softball in the Verde Valley is in very good hands.

Pitcher Kaycee Williams of the Verde Valley Heat 12 and under team warms up with some pitching before practice begins Thursday, July 11. The team focuses on fundamentals and helps the girls prepare for competition.The summer club softball season is in full swing, and girls from the ages of 8 on up through high school are working on their fundamentals with local coaches, competing against teams from Phoenix to Winslow, and from as far away as California and Nevada.

Verde Valley Heat player Miranda Sharp practices hitting Thursday, July 11th, at her team’s practice.The Juggernauts are a club team from Camp Verde that plays in the 16 and under division and contains players from Camp Verde, Sedona and Flagstaff.

The team essentially began its summer season by winning a tournament in Winslow on July 6 in which it beat both the host club and a club from Show Low.

The Juggernaut’s coach Henry Smith, who is an assistant for the Cowboys softball team during the high school season, said the focus of the summer season is just keeping the girls busy.

“The main thing in summer ball is to give them something to do, ... keep them in shape,” Smith said. “We have a few of them that want to go to college, so [we] focus on trying to educate them on what it takes to go to college as far as grades and being a part of the community.

“And then of course we’re getting them ready for the high school season.”
