Rapids Program Expansion

The Word is Out!


The best kept secret in high-end New England travel softball is a secret no longer!  The program has been around for 18 years, operating as an elite 18U Gold team playing a national schedule for the past decade.  This "boutique" team, which has a tremendous track record of getting players to the college level, will be expanding to younger age levels for the 2016-17 season. 


The 18U Gold team will play its usual competitive showcase schedule primarily in the Mid-Atlantic with a few further trips, while the younger teams will play a challenging schedule primarily in New England with occasional travel to select events beyond New England possible.


For more information about the program, contact Mike Lavallee (cmrapids@aol.com; 508-688-2615) for 18U or Eric Marino (ericmarino718@icloud.com; 603-327-1067) for 14U and below.
