Arizona Storm plays on the best fields against the best competition on a consistent basis. We have helped hundreds of great young ladies achieve their dreams of playing college softball. We currently are the only Arizona organization with returning / invited berths to PGF Premier. We play on the best fields against the best teams in Triple Crown and Usssa. We have worked hard building off the success Rick Beach put into place for us to carry on. Our older teams consistently have colleges involved and evaluating our athletes for their school. Our organizational workouts typically draw 30-50 schools to evaluate our athletes. We are the premier organization in Arizona and ranked among the best in the country year after year.
