Here are some of the frequently asked questions that we receive:
1. Where do you practice?
Our on field practices are held at Davis Park, 210 Davis Park Rd., Ponte Vedra, FL 32081
We do our skills training and “rain outs” at our brand new state of the art facility at 5 Tool Training, 14797 Philips Hwy., Jacksonville, FL 32256.
2. When are practices?
10u Training Team - Wednesdays 6pm-8pm.
10u & 12u - Mondays are for team practices 5:45pm-8pm and Thursdays are our well known skill night where we have an hour of hitting, defense, mental training and strength, conditioning & agility work from 5pm-8pm.

16u & 18u - Tuesdays 5:45pm-8pm.
Our Fall 2019 Practices Schedule will be under the Teams tab.
3. What is the 10u Training Team?
The 10u Training Team is a transition team for players looking to start their travel softball experience. Most of our Training Team players continue to play on a recreational team. The Training Team practices once a week with a focus on proper skill development, character development and knowledge of the game. Near the end of the season they will play in one (fall) or two (spring/summer) tournaments.
4. What are your fees for the season?
5. Why are your fees higher than other organizations?
We have two paid coaches on staff for each team. These coaches do NOT have a daughter on the team.
Each team's paperwork is done by our Five Tool Training staff and is not delegated to a parent. This includes: team sanctioning, practice schedules, tournament schedules, practice planning, hotel group room blocks to help save you money and so much more!
We have some of the best facilities in the area whether it is at Davis Park OR at our new home at ABOVE Athletics Center on Philips Highway.
6. When are fees due?
A $200 deposit is due after tryouts (IF YOUR DAUGHTER IS OFFERED A SPOT ON THE TEAM) for all players committed to the team and that goes towards your daughter's dues for the season.
We allow you to make your payment in full at the beginning of the season OR you can make a half payment by August 31st and a half payment by October 15th.
Parents wishing to set up a payment plan can speak to Coach Taylor and we are happy to work out a schedule.

We do NOT require you to do any fundraising. But, if you choose to do fundraising all of the money goes directly towards your daughter's fees.

Contact Coach Ashley with ideas.

Applications are due by August 1 for the fall season and January 1 for the spring season.
