Welcome to the Long Island Bandits Girls Fastpitch Softball Organization

About The Long Island Bandits Travel Softball Organization
Travel fastpitch-softball is a highly competitive form of softball. The players from these travel teams are picked from the best players available from varsity, junior varsity, middle school teams, little league and club teams throughout Suffolk and Nassau Counties in New York State. The Long Island Bandit players are enormously dedicated. The girls are ages 8 to 23 years. The teams play and practice all year round. The players receive specialized training on a regular basis from professional college coaches and players.  There is a dedicated and experienced coaching staff working with the girls. The coaches continually keep up with current coaching theories through clinics, videos, books and the internet.
Community service is encouraged and the Bandits have participated in various charity events as well as making appearances at assisted living facilities. The teams play in many tournaments and leagues. To play these games the team travels throughout Long Island as well as out of state.  Most of these events are sanctioned by National Governing bodies including PONY, PAL, ASA, NSA, ISA and FAST-PITCH. This year the teams will play in local Long Island events, Regional out-of-state tournaments and National tournaments. During these tournaments the girls are exposed to teams from throughout the country.  The Bandits organization has been around for well over 15 years. In 2001 one of our older teams won a National Title and in 2005 our 14 and under team came in second at the FAST-PITCH Nationals. The Bandits philosophy is based on three concepts: commitment, practice and development. The combination of these ingredients makes a winning team. We look for girls and parents who are team players. We work to develop our players and try to get them to perform to the best of their ability. We believe that perfect practice makes perfect play. The Bandits promote a winning attitude. Although, winning is not our only priority, making our players better remains a primary focus. When we achieve this goal winning will follow.
