Who coaches Rhino teams?
At our youth levels (7u-14u) we utilize parent coaches. Over a decade of being a program, we have had fantastic youth coaches that are dedicated, knowledgable and great role models for our players. As a program we invest into our youth level coaches with coaching classes and practice plans.
At our high school levels (15u-18u) we have paid, professional, coaches. Majority of our coaches at these levels have either played collegiately and/or have coached at the high school or college programs and levels in the past.
Who instructs practices during the offseason?
All off our training practices for both youth and high school levels are run by professional instructors with previous MiLB or collegiate experience.
If you have a pitching session it is ran by professional pitching instructors. Same with hitting, fielding, speed, strength and agility, etc.

The youth coaches are responsible for their individual team practices throughout the offseason where they focus on team aspects leading into the season.
Do you offer speed, strength and agility?
All training that we do is part of the monthly dues, which does include speed, strength and agility.
We are firm believers that this part of training is critical in the development of players which is why it is a large part of our training regimen.
Each age level is different on focus levels.
Does Rhino help with the college recruiting process?
Yes we do.
Overall, we want players to take responsibility for their recruiting, but we do help with the process.
We look to educate players and their families on the college recruiting cycle and hold recruiting classroom sessions where families learn about the process.
Rhino Softball has connections throughout the country where we help connect those coaches with players that we feel are right fits.
We also help with recruiting videos when the times is right for players.
As a program we are nearing 300 total college commitments since 2013.
How many tournaments do teams play in?
Each team handles their own schedule and will vary in the amount of tournaments and travel. Typically each team gets together and discusses how many tournaments they want to play in, which ones, and how many travel trips, if any.
On average, teams play in around 8 tournaments throughout the spring and summer. Most teams do not play in a league but rather play side games against teams/programs they think fit talent wise.
Rhino administrators determine schedules for each individual high school team. Tournaments are determined by a number of things including; overall team talent, college exposure, etc.
On average, our high school teams play in 7 tournaments over 8 weeks and practice around twice a week leading into tournament weekends.
Do you have a home field?
Yes we do!
We have our own outdoor field which is located at the Scheels USA Youth Sports Complex in Appleton.
Do Rhino instructors offer private lessons?
