Sponsor Our Team

The Lady Lightning Gold Travel Softball Club needs your help!

Lady Lightning Gold Travel Softball Club is part of Fairfax Youth Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit. Our Fairfax City-based organization is committed to the very best in youth softball. We field seven teams at the 10, 11, 12 13, 16 and 18 year-old levels. Our teams consist of players from all over Northern Virginia who love the game of softball, and who are passionate about learning the physical fundamentals, as well as the finer theory and technicalities of the game.

The Lady Lightning Gold coaching and team formation philosophy is different from most. Our coaching staff believes that if you pick players with the right character who conduct themselves well, who are willing to commit and work hard, and who think of the team’s needs first before their own desires, then success will follow. More than being good ball players, the Lady Lightning Gold  players understand the importance of commitment, proper behavior, respect, playing with heart, and the value of putting the team first.

We take pride in our players, not just because of their softball and athletic skills, but more importantly because of the character that they individually possess and display on a regular basis. We feel that team chemistry is more important than raw talent. All of our players have watched youth softball on national television, all aspire to play softball in high school and most aspire to play college softball. Our players understand the importance of education and work diligently on their academic endeavors. Education is stressed to our players such that all are required to maintain good grades in order to retain the privilege of playing softball as a Lady Lightning Gold player.

Our coaching staff is dedicated to the players, to helping them achieve their goals, and to furthering youth sports programs in general. Outside of coaching the Lady Lightning Gold, they give of their time in volunteer work in many youth sports areas, such as little league boards, county committees, etc.

Our program is a year-round program and will include winter workout space needs, uniforms, county player registration fees, tournament fees, and equipment needs. We do not get funding from any municipality, and the financial requirements to allow these young players to participate are significant. The parents contribute towards the cost of the team, but we need additional funds in order to meet our budget and are raising the rest through sponsorship donations and other fundraising activities. This is where we need your help!

Your tax-deductible donation will directly support the participation and development of our players as athletes and as individuals of character. Sponsorship opportunities are described in more detail below.
