Glory Christiansen/Mertz Premier

VA Glory National Teams:

Glory Christiansen/Mertz Premier (18u)

The Virginia Glory Christiansen/Mertz 18u Premier provides top notch training focusing on player development. Currently ranked 20th in the country by Extra Innings Softball. We are proud to be invited to the nation’s top college showcases, competing in power pools, and attending top tier national tournaments. Traveling to Florida, Colorado, Tennessee, California and more looking to seek out the best competition and put our student athletes in front of as many college coaches as possible. Past season commits include: Yale, Furman, George Washington, Rutgers, JMU, Penn State, Lehigh, Campbell, Maine, Army West Point, Drexel, University of Alabama-Birmingham, Mount St. Mary’s, Frostburg, Virginia Tech, Coastal Carolina, Hartford, Albany, Dayton, Buffalo, Morgan State, West Chester, and Wilmington.

The Glory program is for dedicated student-athletes and families who have a great passion and respect for the game, who aspire to play at the collegiate level, and who are fiercely competitive. And, for players and families who truly embrace our Purpose Driven Softball movement, who believe in being part of something bigger and creating a powerful environment where players thrive by giving each other their absolute best. This is NOT a “me first” individual-based culture. We provide the highest level TEAM experience; emphasize elite level fundamentals; maintain high academic standards; partner with established recruitment and academic advisers and provide online college networking services, and instill life skills and close-knit relationships that carry through life.

If your daughter is fiercely competitive, wants to be her best, and wants to play with and against the best, please contact any member of the coaching staff for more information.

THE JOY IS IN THE JOURNEY!
