The Kishwaukee Valley Storm Softball Organization was started in 2001 with the goal of fundamentally improving the talents of our local softball players. Our goals remain the same today. With opportunities year round we continue to build confident, strong young women.
The KV Storm 16U team took 1st place at the Fall Brawl one day tournament in Beloit, Wisconsin this past weekend. The team finished the day 4-0 outscoring their opponents 34-11. Ocean Ashton was 9-12 on the day and Morgan Smardo was 7-9 to lead the offense. Timely hitting, sound defense and three good pitching performances contributed to the Championship. The next event for the team is a round robin in Davis Junction on October 4th.
The online registration link below will remain open and continue to accept applications for those at the 12U-16U age levels that may have missed our open tryouts or were recently removed from a team unexpectedly. We will try to work with everyone to find them a spot on a team with us or with another regional team. You will be directed to enter a date that will work best for your private tryout and we will respond as soon as possible or contact the head coach of each team directly as listed below.
Any additional tryouts will be held on fields 9-12 at the Sycamore Community Sports Complex on Airport Road in Sycamore.

We are making it officially known that we will stand with our local high school softball programs through these abnormal times and the IHSA schedule changes. When the time comes this fall and next spring and early summer to play softball, there will be no choice to be made, as our girls will be representing their local high school teams. Life long memories are made at this stage of their lives and we want them to experience as much of that as they can. We'll all be there cheering for you each and every game!
