8/11/14- played for 3 travel teams the session is over, in one case we had to cancel 3 tournaments because of lack of players, it was a struggle but diversity helps build character and thats what this year was about,except for Team USA. 

TEAM USA, 16u  Ive been asked to play again next year. I will be going to the Dominican  next july to play for Team USA . I Just   returned from Italy; first it was an experience of a lifetime, I made many new friends and the coaching staff was awesome. to be coached by an Olympian in Head Coach Christie Ambrosi and the other staff was a privilege and honor.  To gain experience playing international is something Ill remember my entire life!! As far as softball:  we played 6 games; 3 head to head games and 3 games where both teams where split up for fun.  

We had 8 pitchers on the team I was considered the second pitcher, I also played OF and 1st base.  during the games we pitched 2-3 innings max.  And we played against ladies who where 20-30 years old in some of the games.  my stats: 7 innings pitched,  0 ERA, no hits out of the infield, 3 ko's, 1 walk, made some put outs in the OF and some nice throws to keep runners from advancing, Batting: .500, 1 HR, 4 RBI's, 5 stolen bases, scored 3 times.  My play and character has led me to be invited to play again next year and Coach Ambrosi said I could play for her anytime.  So Im looking forward to playing again somewhere internationally next year.

AND THIS second QUARTERS GRADES HAVE COME OUT AND IM AVERAGING A 88 OVER ALL

My name is Nicole Woodward, I am transferring back to Cleveland Hill HS due to academic needs and the athletic opportunities I will have.
 I"ve been playing softball  since I was 8 years old.  Im currently 15 and playing on an older 16u travel team which will be playing in 18u tournaments this year.  I've been playing and starting in high school since I was in 7th grade, which gives me 4 years of high school experience already.  I pitch, (i throw a fastball, change-up, curve, screwball and triple pitch.)  I have thrown 6 no-hitters in my career and numerous 1 and 2 hitters.  My first pitching coach was Kim Griffin who is the Asst. coach at Canisius College, I now take lessons from Bill Hillhouse who was the gold medal pitcher for the USA Olympic team.  I throw strikes, can work the ball inside and outside hitting the corners with control, I pitch in combinations to keep the batters off balance and I have confidence in knowing I can throw any of my pitches at anytime during the count. I can work the ball up or down and inside or out and can change speeds on any of my pitches. I have a lot of movement which makes it difflecult for batters to hit me solid. I am currently enrolled in an elite athletic training program through new era and take it very seriously, I also play firstbase and the outfield,  I have excellent range, and have thrown many people out trying to take extra bases, I throw the ball hard over hand, close to 70mph and am very accurate.  Im an excellent bunter, I hit with power, mostly line drives in the gaps and have an excellent eye at the plate, my on base percentage is over.800.  I pride myself at being a very deversified player that can play many positions and depending on the team I bat 2-6 in the line-up.  Im a smart and excellent base runner and have many delayed and normal steals each season.  I am very athletic as u can see from my videos, I also play varsity basketball and have since 8th grade in which im an excellent shooter, ball handler, passer and defensive player.   I am also working hard at my grades and preparing for the SAT and ACT exams.  Now that I'm going to be a junior, im looking at arts and humanities, sports management amongst other Bachalor degree's . Im not concerned whether I play Division 1,2,or 3 or NAIA but finding the school that feels I will contribute most to the team and that i will obtain an excellent education and will challenge me as a student  and as an athlete is the major priority of mine.  Of course I want to play at the highest level my ability allows, but I will consider many options and not limit myself.

I feel I will be a strong asset to anyones program because I am  coachable, am dedicated and passionate about the game and improving. My videos and statistics will be up-dated often so you will be able to see my improvement as i get stronger over the next few years. I will do anything to contribute to the team and I lead by example.  I work very hard and want to be challenged in every skill level.  I practice and play hard and believe in giving my teachers,school, coach and team mates 150 percent every time I take the field.  I am a positive person have many hobbies outside of sports.  I know if you give me an opportunity, I will do my very best for the team and that you will be proud in how I will contribute to the success of your school and program.  Thank you for considering me, Nicole

The Importance of an Online Athletic Resume

One of the most important tools for recruits is an online athletic resume. A well-constructed resume provides college coaches with valuable information about a student-athlete’s athletic accomplishments and their academic strengths. Coaches want detailed information that’s easy to access and is verified by a trusted third party like NCSA.

NCSA’s Recruiting Management System (RMS) makes creating an online athletic resume pretty simple. The RMS is easy to navigate and it can be used to set up a detailed recruiting profile that includes your stats, athletic and academic achievements, and even your highlight video.

An online resume that’s clean and easy to read is a powerful way to show off your strengths to a large number of college coaches.

Some of the information you should include on your resume:

  • Detailed contact information
  • The name of your high school and where it is located
  • Your sport, your position, your height and weight
  • Your year in school
  • Personal stats that are specific to your sport
  • Up-to-date information about your team
  • A personal statement explaining why you would make a good addition to any athletic program
  • GPA
  • Standardized test scores (SAT or ACT)
  • Academic honors like National Honor Society or Student Council
