Softball Cancelled for 2017 Season

Parents and students,

Thank you for your interest in helping form a softball team with the TN Heat. Unfortunately, we did not have enough interest to be able to create a team for the current season.  I wanted to inform you of this as quickly as possible, so your daughters would still have time to sign up for another league.  My intentions are to attempt this again next season starting around October 2017.  This should give enough time for recruitment as well as being able to put together a solid program.

Should you have interest in joining Heat Softball for the 2018 season, please contact me via email at or by phone at 615-480-6162.

Coach McKay
