The Blazers Fast Pitch Softball hosted a Golf Tournament Saturday, April 28, at the Hayden Golf Course. Daniel Hinojos has been coaching the Blazers Fast Pitch Softball for about four years now.

Daniel works with the younger girls in the Ray/Hayden, Kearny, Winkelman and Globe area. The girls play the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) league, a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization. The ASA entered the softball picture in 1933 and has grown to over 250,000 teams throughout the United States.

The ASA youth program helps provide recreational and competitive opportunities for our youth. Whether a player views softball as a new sport to learn, a way to have fun with friends or a learning experience there is something for everyone.

Participating in the ASA sports program our youth can learn a sport they will enjoy for a lifetime in a safe, supportive and positive environment. It is important for a softball coach to voice opinions, criticism, compliments and everything in between. Effective communication skills and constructive criticism are also keys in running a smooth softball program.

Fundraising is important and extremely helpful. Members of the community helped with purchasing holes at the golf tournament and signs were made and put at each hole representing the sponsor or business that donated money. They had a total of twenty sponsors.

The teams that played were competitive but made time to laugh and enjoy the day. This was a successful event and the young ladies of the Blazers Fast Pitch Softball appreciate all the support they have received.
