The 2014 Seasons will have 12-13 players and starts in December with weekly speed and agility training, indoor hitting, and pitching/catching workouts.

Moving into the Spring Season playing no more than 2 tournaments per month until Memorial Day Weekend, which we will play in Roseville. Spring Season will include about 6 Tournaments, with another 6 being played in the Summer with one week break in late June.

The season will end in after the first week of August. All families will enjoy the rest of the summer taking August off to get some down time before the beginning of school in September.

Located in the San Ramon Valley along the 680 corridors, the Valley Stompers are the "A" Travel Ball division of the San Ramon Valley Girls Athletic League (SRVGAL). Valley Stompers teams are very competitive, competing at some of the highest rated tournaments, and require a high level of commitment from the players and families.

Our goal is to develop mature, responsible young ladies with a passion and respect for the game. We plan on playing in top tournaments throughout northern and southern California, with options to travel out of state depending on the opportunities. We utilize best coaching practices in the areas of; skill mechanics (basic and advanced), mental aspects of the game (strategy, rules, and game philosophy), physical training (endurance, strength conditioning, injury prevention and athlete nutrition), and team spirit and fun through empowerment. We expect 100% effort and focus at practices and games.
