Royal Swings Ravens Travel Club
VISION Statement: To develop the player & the person and focus on player, coach, and parent development to become one of the top youth Softball/Baseball programs in the Country.
Mission Statement: To develop the skills and character that enable players and coaches to reach their fullest potential both on and off the field. To provide first-class resources for player/coach development and administrative support to allow coaches to coach and players to play.
What makes Royal Swings Ravens different from most competitive youth travel teams is our commitment to values. Royal Swings Ravens players are expected to maintain solid standing in school and are recognized for academic achievement. Our players participate in charitable events and give back to the communities in which they live and play.
Royal Swings Ravens will adhere to the following core values:
- The right combination of conditioning, coaching and competing builds character traits that will last a lifetime.
- Family, church, and school are more important than softball/baseball.
- Team accomplishments are greater than individual accomplishments.
- Supporting your teammates through good times and bad helps develop a positive outlook on life.
- Academic excellence is a fundamental component of individual success.
- Giving back to your community teaches values that will shape strong citizens.

There are many softball organizations out there, but very few live up to what they promise or they lack something that you are missing. Bad experiences coupled with good experiences has given us an edge on what Chicagoland is missing; what it’s needing.
We can’t promise that you will win every single game, but we can promise that you will not regret the training and experience that your child will receive.
There is a saying – “You get what you pay for” That is never truer than when you are spending a large sum of money to play organized sports, so what are you willing to pay for and expecting to receive?
The $25 registration fee is for the costs associated with holding tryouts that are a huge administrative burden to offset some of the costs. We understand that this may deter some folks, and we thank you for considering. As a parent of a child who has played travel ball for 4 years, we have paid numerous try out fees without a guarantee of making that team, but we looked at it as a way to get additional practice as well as experience being part of a showcase – (something they need to learn in high school).
Travel Try Outs to girls Softball at 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U will be held on July 26th, 27th, & 28th!
Our goal is to create a team and organization to teach the proper fundamentals and mechanics. Looking to develop student-athletes who are sound on the field and off.
We will start and build our organization with Girls FastPitch next season and introduce baseball next year for the 2018 Season.
