Team Philosophy

Competition

J.O. softball is competitive, not recreation, softball. The coaching staff is committed to balancing competitiveness and maintaining a positive experience for all players. Although we will always play to win, it is not a win at all cost mentality. All players must understand that, unlike recreation softball, the manager does not guarantee minimum playing times.

Tournaments

The Pa Mystics FastPitch Softball Association is a competitive travel team. As such, we will "travel" to where the competition is. It is our intent to schedule between six and seven tournaments each season. The coaches will also schedule other weekend games. We expect that no more than two or three tournaments that will require an overnight stay during the season. These overnighters are family oriented outings. As such, the entire family is encouraged to travel with the team and attend the tournaments and games.

Teamwork

We practice as a team and we play as a team. Therefore, we expect that all players will attend as many games and practices as possible. Because of the time commitment and other obligations, we understand that some young women probably cannot attend all the games and practices. To help in planning, practice schedules and game dates will be provided as far in advance as possible. We ask that each player do the best they can to attend as many practices and games as possible.

Involvement

The Pa Mystics is a volunteer organization run by volunteers. It is a family oriented organization that relies on the support of the parents and families to run smoothly. If your daughter is selected to become a member of the Pa Mystics, you may help the organization by car pooling, chaperoning, fund raising or helping with any number of other "not too stressful tasks."

Communication

We believe that having an understanding of the expectations of all of the parties is important for everyone involved: players, parents, and coaches. For that reason we have prepared this outline and a set of bylaws. For the Pa Mystics to continue to be successful, your voice at the appropriate time and in the appropriate place is encouraged. Parent and player suggestions and ideas are important to the manager, the team, and to each player.

Positions

The coaching staff will make all player assignments based on the needs of the team. All players will "earn their position."

Practices

Player and team performance will improve only with practice. Field time is difficult to schedule, which makes attending practice more important. If selected to play for the Pa Mystics please ensure your daughter attends as many practices as possible. The coaching staff suggests you try to arrive 10 minutes ahead of the practice time.
