Xtreme Softball Coaches believe that our greatest contribution
is in teaching young people the values of competition.
These values include: making a commitment to work hard,
to strive for excellence and a willingness to sacrifice
to make the team better. We believe these values will allow
them to be the best they can be as a person and as an athlete.
We believe that our job is to develop the total person,
and not just the athlete. Our players learn to respect
the game of fastpitch softball and all who are involved
We believe that
softball is fun and rewarding because of the relationships
that are formed on the field and the ability to accomplish
a common goal together as a team. While a member of Lake
Xtreme, our players will learn about commitment, success,
trust, respect, pride, attitude, motivation, responsibility,
discipline, mental toughness and integrity.
Softball coaches are committed to teaching our players
the E.L.M. Tree Philosophy to playing the game of softball.
