All About the RI Ravens
Rhode Island Ravens Fastpitch Softball offers competitive divisions for girls, aged 6—18, that prepares them for competitive fastpitch softball at the local, regional, and national levels. We have a dedicated group of coaches, parents and players that are determined to provide the best possible opportunity for the young ladies of our community. The RI Ravens play in the USA Softball Organization. Our top teams play in numerous fastpitch softball tournaments all over New England, Mid-Atlantic and beyond.
We strive to instill the right balance of competitiveness and sportsmanship, to help the young ladies become good citizens of our society and ambasadors of fastpitch softball. We believe that our greatest contribution is in teaching young people the values of competition: to make a commitment, to work hard, to strive for excellence, to sacrifice to make the team better, and to be the best you can be as a person and as an athlete. We believe that our job is to develop the total person, and not just the athlete. Our players learn to respect the game of fastpitch softball and all who are involved in it. It is our desire to provide the best guidence, coaching and opportunity for our players to play at the highest levels of fastpitch softball well into their future.
As an organization, we realize there is much more than winning and losing. Softball is just a game. Our players and coaches work hard on- and off-the-field to be good citizens and learn how to be great competitors with very sound sportsmanship. With that hard work sometimes comes the reward of a trophy. The hardware is a reminder of the effort and sacrifice that goes into the win. We are proud of our winning tradition. We are more proud of our quality athletes and the women they will become.
