For more than a decade the Windy City Rage has been one of the premier fastpitch/baseball programs in the Chicagoland area. Many of our players are local residents of the near north suburbs and the Chicago area. Our teams compete from the recreational travel through the college exposure levels. We strive to give all our players the chance to have fun and compete at the highest level possible. We provide our players with opportunities to be seen by college coaches through playing in college exposure tournaments, camps and other recruiting events. In 2019 we also offered boys baseball and have developed a program that is on track to follow the same success of our fastpitch program. Players have access to highly experienced coaches, trainers and some of the best training facilities in the area. Our baseball teams train year-round and play in a highly competitive league in addition travel tournaments throughout the year
We believe that softball/baseball, as well as all sports, is an integral part of the educational process and development of the total athlete. Softball/baseball, like all sports, teaches teamwork. Players learn how to work together to achieve a common goal. By practicing and competing, student athletes improve their self-image and confidence. By striving with teammates to be the best they can be, lifelong friendships are formed and greater self-esteem is fostered. Sports mirrors life. The arena of competition creates many situations that present our players with important life lessons. We consider the recognition and understanding of those life lessons an extremely important part of the growth and maturity of our players. The ability to deal with and overcome adversity is one such life lesson. This can be overcome through hard work and dedication. Thus, we expect our players to perform at a high level of competitiveness and intensity during every practice and contest. Every player is an equally important part of our softball/baseball program. It is our desire to provide our players with nothing less than a positive, rewarding experience no matter how far their career takes them in our program. Therefore, it is important that every player be given the opportunity to improve their fundamental skills as well as their knowledge and understanding of our program during the season/off season. We are committed to athletes who are good students, good people and good softball/baseball players.
