The teams will begin play June 11 at Big South Challenge, and then Lax-N-ati. Cherry Bomb, Summer Sizzle are also on the list. The Bats try to find an economical way to play (tax-exempt status)across the nation against some of the best teams. This is a young team that is motivated to win.
New head coach Shane Andersen (Bellarmine) and assistant coaches Micahel Anderson (Denver), Ryan Smith (Bellarmine), and Kevin Johnson (Trinity HIgh Goalie Coach) are considered the "new generation of coaches" that bring a dynamic, fun, instructional college speed approach to these elite Kentucky players.
