“Student-athlete’s in our program leave with greater game knowledge, an advanced skill level and the self-discipline needed to compete at the highest level“
UNY Revolution started in 2007 with one 14U team. Our 1st graduating class was in 2010, and since then, we have assisted 115 kids with the process (33 D-1, 37 D-2 and over 35 D-3 schools). The 2023 class is our 14th class and shaping up nicely with 2 D-1, 1 D-2, and 5 D-3 commits already and the completion of several pending offers coming soon. The goal of the UNY Revolution organization is to teach young people the values of competition: to make a commitment, to work hard, to strive for excellence, to sacrifice to make the team better, and to be the best you can be as a person and as an athlete. Our players learn about accountability and responsibility. Self-control, mental toughness, the ability to stay positive, belief and trust in oneself, and a commitment to academic excellence are essential characteristics to be successful on the softball field but, more importantly, with the real challenges in life. The focus is player development. We teach the fundamentals of the game, starting at the 10u level. We focus on footwork, glove work, receiving, and throwing. Our method is teaching our athletes how to become independent thinkers on the softball field. Those who can think and self-adjust on their own are ultimately the best players. Good players adjust. Great players make them faster! We educate families and student-athletes about the college recruiting process and teach them how to conduct a successful college search. We stress the importance of the student’s academics. The end game is finding the right fit both athletically and academically for the student-athlete and their family. UNY Revolution is ultimately committed to providing a positive environment for young student-athletes who aspire to higher education within the framework of competition. We ensure every student-athlete in our program leaves with greater game knowledge, an advanced skill level and the self-discipline needed to compete at the highest level. Student-athletes who commit to our program and stick to it will achieve rewards far beyond wins or losses. They will dramatically and permanently enhance their playing experience, athletic performance, and life success.
“Our softball program stands out for it’s exceptional coaching, top-notch training, and a proven track record of success. Join us and experience the Revolution and see what sets us apart.”
