Chantilly Youth Association is excited to offer an opportunity to join our Travel Program and be coached by former Lake Braddock Varsity coach George Rumore. We are looking for 12U players, ages 10 to 12. Teams have been trying to lure George away for years to coach their program, and now since he has stepped away from High School we have this great opportunity. Please email Coach Rumore at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to register for tryouts.
Tryouts will be held at Chantilly High School's softball field
· Sunday, August 1 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
· Tuesday, August 3 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
· Thursday, August 5 6:00 PM – 8:00PM
George coached the last 13 years at Lake Braddock High School:
· Regional playoffs - 11 out of 12 years (COVID killed year 13)
· State playoffs – 3 years
· Patriot District Champions - 7 times
· District Championship games – 7 times
· Washington Post Top Ten rankings - 7 times
· Spring Break Tournament Champs - 6 times
· Many players earning 1st or 2nd Team All State, All District
· Some players earned 1st or 2nd Team Washington Post All-Met
· Only coach to have a player earn Washington Post All-Met at two different positions
· Numerous players have gone on to play in college with scholarships, including D1 schools
· Elite hitting and pitching instructor at Redline Athletics, and in past years VBC (Virginia Baseball Club)
Besides coaching at Lake Braddock, George also coached at McLean, Wakefield and Bishop O'Connell (baseball) High Schools along with travel programs such as Vienna Stars (A level), BRYC Stingrays, and the NOVA Patriots. He is not just a softball coach – he also coached many seasons of high level baseball, and was a scout for the Texas Rangers.
You will agree with us that having someone with George’s 40 years of experience is really exciting. Ask any of his recent Lake Braddock players and they will tell you that his practices are the hardest they have ever done – and they loved it. While the practices are fast paced, physically demanding and well organized, he also knows when to halt practice for the many learning moments that occur. Many coaches do drills for drills sake … George wants them done a certain way and if not done right, he corrects the athletes. He believes you play like you practice. He has had many umpires over the years tell him his teams play like college teams – infielders glide across the field making plays, diving stops, etc.
We plan on playing local tournaments our first season. There are lots of tournaments in Loudoun County with multiple levels of skills and ages. George may decide to do one or more away tournaments, but that will be addressed on a season by season basis. We believe that by joining our program, your young athletes will be developed physically and mentally into outstanding young women. They will just happen to be outstanding Softball players.
