14U Nevada Lightning ’03 Dawson


The Lightning ’03 team is headed in a positive direction, after a lot of hard work. There is a core group of talented girls and good families already in place on the team currently.  We have infused a good deal of new recruits and families into the mix heading into the fall/winter season.

Brett Dawson is the head coach for the ’03 team.  He brings several years of coaching experience with a special emphasis on handling pitchers.  Diana Wheelen serves as the Manager to the team handling all administrative tasks.  Brian Vodehnal, Michael Wheelen and Paul Woodin round out the coaching staff by bringing several years of coaching experience to the table.

The mission for the team is to promote both developmental and competitive aspects with their girls. The coaches will do a lot of teaching on the field, as they “explain the why” and use teachable moments in games to help their players softball IQ grow.  Getting girls ready to play at the high school level is a main goal of the coaching staff as well.  The management team and the Lightning organization will also talk with families about the college recruiting process.  The team will work hard as they make the move to becoming an “A” level travel team, which is a trademark of teams within the Nevada Lightning organization.
