BLACKSTONE VALLEY VENOM
Respect All. Fear None.
Blackstone Valley Venom is a fastpitch organization competing at the 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U age levels. The teams are comprised of players from the Blackstone Valley area of Massachusetts and compete in several summer tournaments each season across New England. All of the players and coaches are committed to working hard, improving skills and pushing their softball IQ to the limits. Being competitive is not the only goal each and every game, but being good teammates and young women on and off the field will be important in the journey as well.
We are excited to announce our new 2021 coaches for the new 12U Blackstone Valley Venom team!
We would like to welcome Head Coach Zoe Haley to the Venom family. Zoe played in college at Worcester State and was a 4-year Varsity player at Bellingham High School in Bellingham, MA where she was a State Final Champion in 2014. Zoe was named captain and earned first team All-Star credentials in her senior season. During the off-season, Zoe played travel club softball for many years. After college, Zoe has taken on coaching roles at Franklin High School as the Sub Varsity Coach for Softball as well as the Freshman Basketball Coach at Bellingham High School. She also has coaching experience at Inside Corner Baseball in Uxbridge, MA where she was an pitching/softball instructor since 2013 and has received glowing references.
Bridget McGrail joins Coach Haley this year for the 12U team ~ Welcome Assistant Coach McGrail! Bridget played softball collegiately at Framingham State University and is looking forward to this new opportunity to join Zoe and coach the 12U players under the BV Venom umbrella!
Introducing our 2021 Coaches for our new 14U Blackstone Valley Venom team!
Head Coach Steve Orff begins his second round with the Venom. He will coach the newly formed 14U team after a successful 3-year run with the "original" Venom team that started the program back in 2017. Coach Orff is very excited to be starting with a new team that is full of talent and skills and that has what it takes to go far. He welcomes his Assistant Coaches Bill Pisani, Kali Scirocco and Lucie Nicholson to the staff as well. Bill has been an integral part of the success of the Venom right from the start, heading up roles as the Teams Metrics Director and Head Statistician. Bill has been involved in coaching off and on over the past ten years with his daughter and Alum Mikki. Kali is a newcomer to the coaching ranks and brings tons of positive energy and game knowledge to the staff. Kali has played throughout New England and the United States for many premier club softball organizations in our area. She is a current student athlete playing for Assumption University in Worcester as a Third Baseman. Lucie is also a newcomer to the coaching ranks. Lucie played competitive softball for the RI Thunder organization and has trained extensively at Planet Fastpitch in Uxbridge. She is currently a Junior at Nipmuc Regional High School and will focus her efforts on the Venom Pitching Staff.
