We Are West Bend Lightning
Since 2014, West Bend Lightning has been finding and featuring some of the best players in Washington County. From coaching them on the ins-and-outs of the sport to honing their athletic skills, we’re proud to teach not only the love of the game, but to also impart the ideals of good sportsmanship, teamwork and loyalty.
Our organization believes in providing an environment for athletes and their families to participate in competitive girls fastpitch softball.
Our objective is to elevate the level of play to the highest caliber possible within a competitive environment. Athletes shall learn the life skills of fair play, good sportsmanship, and respect. By teaching and reinforcing fundamentals, knowledge of the game, commitment, teamwork, perseverance, and positive attitude, Lightning will provide the athletes with the necessary tools to be champions in their sport and in their life.
Our coaching staffs’ passion for training youth players is evident to the athlete and their parents. This enthusiasm provides a positive learning and training atmosphere for each player.
What We Are About
Teamwork includes overcoming obstacles, working with adversity, and keeping a positive and confident mindset. Our organization believes in teaching these skills so the girls can ultimately succeed not just in sports, but also in life.
Each team strives to elevate their play to the highest caliber possible. Tournaments and games are chosen to push the girls athletically while still providing a positive learning environment.
Well Rounded Athletes
Lightning players are encouraged to play sports other than softball if they so choose during the off-season (approximately September-March). School events, church and family obligations also take precedence in the off-season.
