THE STORY:

The teams of the Tar Heel Fastpitch Stars are competitive groups of female student athletes from throughout the state of North Carolina and surrounding states. These young women are the best of the best. They are disciplined and driven - academically and athletically. They share a passion for this sport and recognize that in order to be successful in their athletic careers as well as in life, they must prepare to perform at a highest level of proficiency.

Our upcoming season will provide these young women with the opportunity to display their skills in nationally recognized showcase tournaments that are attended by college coaches from across the country. In addition to showcase tournaments in Virginia, and North and South Carolina, these teams will travel to Atlanta, Chattanooga, Denver and Florida to advance their goal of earning a college education through their love of softball and skill and dedication to playing the game.

Organizing nationally competitive teams to provide those opportunities is expensive. Tournament fees for regional and national tournaments are often $1000 or more. Participating also requires a great deal of travel for players and coaches, in addition to parents and equipment. Travel expenses have increased dramatically over the last few years. All of these factors along with uniforms, insurance and facility rentals require a budget of nearly $50,000 per year, per team. Each player pays a monthly fee in an effort to cover these expenses. While the players of some families have the disposable income to pay the player fees, many require outside support to achieve their goals. The Tar Heel Stars organization supports their efforts by operating a professional incorporated organization, organizing fundraising activities and helping them recruit sponsors who have an interest in rewarding and financially supporting academic and athletic excellence, youth and female sports and health, and disadvantaged female student athletes.

The player fee for one year is $2220. Help a player achieve their goals of going to college as a student athlete by helping to sponsor one player for one year.
