Who are the VFC Wildcats?

The VFC Wildcats were formed to offer a class A/B/C competitive level tournament softball team at the 10U, 12U, and 14U levels, and we also develop athletes that aren't quite ready for the club ball circuit quite yet.  In addition to competing in 5 to 6 tournaments per year, we also do league play in the Madison Metro League, which is the most competitive area league.  We also have the belief that all are welcome to our program.  We have a Verona focused USA Softball division that is for the up and comers, which is still competitive, and gets the athletes prepared for excellence as they grow in the sport.  The mission and purpose of VFC is to develop young ladies into the best softball players they can be, preparing them for excellent high school play and perhaps even further.  Focus on fundamental techniques, repetition, game knowledge, teamwork, and sportsmanship are key areas that help develop the girls on and off the field, and for long after their playing days are done.

On one hand, this is a competitive program based in the Fitchburg/Verona area, with the vast majority of those players being from this area; but on the other hand, we also offer opportunity for local players to still play great ball against other local teams.  Tournament players must make the competitive team, and commit to the off-season conditioning and practice program.  Off-season conditioning runs from December through April, with tournaments starting in May.  Our coaches are top-notch (this includes current high school coaches, non-volunteer coaches with tons of experience, and former elite college level players and coaches), our fundamentals are solid, and most importantly, the girls have fun while getting much, much better at the game of softball.  For our players that aren't quite at the club level yet or for those who may not wish to participate in year round softball practice, they will get excellent coaching, will get significantly better at the game, and will still have a ton of fun with summer ball.

For aspiring players that do not make the team club level teams, we offer and encourage our off-season conditioning and practice program when room provides.  This program is a way to turn your aspiring athlete into a competitive gamer!  Again, we have an all are welcome philosophy, and our wish is to never turn away a girl that wants to get better at the game.
