All about the Bombers
The Illinois Bombers 18u are entering its 17th year of Travel Softball at the 18U “A” Level. We pride ourselves with focusing on skill development, and making players stronger, faster, more powerful and more explosive with performance training. We work on fast twitch muscle and that translates to the college game. The more skills a player has in their tool kit provides more options to a college coaching staff. We work hard, it is not easy, but it pays off in the end.
We are a Gold Regional based college showcase program. The vast majority of our players do play college softball either in Illinois, or one to three states over from any direction. With that being said, there is phenomenal competition within the Midwest. We are smart about our travels and actively seek the best competition closer to home. We do not travel to Colorado because the Bombers focus is the Midwest region. Please see our news page for a listing of our college commitments.
The Illinois Bombers 18u Fall and Summer Schedule is as good as, if not better than the majority of all other teams in our area. The cost to play for the program is $1,500, which in most cases, is two thousand less than most other programs, and the Illinois Bombers still provide more, and actually develop players. If you are are a high school student, who has good grades, is a good athlete and talented softball player, the Illinois Bombers may be a fit for you.
