Welcome To The Vipers Fastpitch Home Page
The Vipers Fastpitch Softball (VFP) teams travels throughout Southern Illinois, eastern Missouri and western Indiana participating in scrimmage games, double headers, round robins, tournaments and/or leagues depending upon age group. Focus throughout the program revolves around balancing a healthy level of competitiveness while advancing the game of fastpitch softball. Season typically kicks off around June 1st . Once season starts players can expect to have busy summers playing between 25-80 games depending on age group and levels of success. Travel distances range around 45 - 60 miles on average.
Softball lessons are available for Hitting, Fielding, Base Running, Catching, Pitching, Agility and Conditioning in single sessions or packages at lower rates. Lessons are done one on one with the individual player and parent allowing focus on that player for that hour. Lessons are available indoors year round for internal players and open to the public as well. Lessons include detailed focus on the discipline being studied along with simple yet thorough explanation. Lessons may also be followed with video analysis to help the player with feedback.
Visual, audio and hands on approaches of the game are all covered to thoroughly tackle every learning style of every player whether in lessons, camps or on the diamond. This approach is a best attempt at setting every player up for their best foot forward once the season gets underway.
VFP offers camps throughout the year in Hitting, Fielding, Conditioning, Base Running, Catching and Pitching camps at our 1200 square foot indoor practice facility located in Carlyle, IL throughout the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Camp availability can be found by visiting the 'Softball Camps' section of our website above.
