We take pride in the journey that we take with all Ohana athletes on their path to becoming a college scholar athlete. Our 2021-2024 classes, or those athletes who are actively in their recruitment years, have been very successful thus far in creating their platform for college coaches through the systems offered by the organization and her team.
Our Gold program is under the guidance and experience of Ohana co-directors, Shawn and Joey Quarles. Our 16U and 18U Gold teams are hand-picked by the Quarles brothers to represent the Ohana Tigers brand nationally and against the very best teams across the country. They have had success at every level of travel ball including a successful 6 year championship run at CIF Div 1 HS softball while at Gahr HS.
Our Gold teams will be positioned on the most recruited fields in each tournament entered and will follow a college level itinerary in terms of development and accountability. In addition, our 18U Gold team has full equipment sponsorship from Louisville Slugger/Evoshield and our 16U Gold athletes often reap the benefits as well.
All of our high school-aged teams are coached by experienced coaches who have knowledge of the recruiting process and will do an excellent job of cultivating scholar athletes and getting them physically and mentally ready for the rigors of being a scholar athlete in college.
We are having our first tryouts of the Summer for all high school athletes in the classes of 2021-2024 hosted by The Ohana Gold Program. It will be held on Saturday and Sunday, August 15-16, 2020 starting at 9am at the San Pedro Softball Complex. This is a graduation class based tryout. All Coaches from Ohana teams within the grad years required are invited to attend. REMEMBER: We are doing this by grad years to avoid having the situation arise where a team has 2 or 3 8th graders that don't have a team when the rest of the team goes dark in February. High School Athletes ONLY please.
Because of capacity limitations due to CoVid, we are requiring that each athlete wishing to attend RSVP by filling out the Gold/HS tryout form. You can find that form by clicking here.

Preparation and poise. Approach and response. Know what you want to do; know how to do it; know how to react to whatever results. Hitters heed: how you go about your business and how you react to what happens to you both are, theoretically within the boundaries of your control. What happens to you (results), are not.
Learn the difference – and learn how to manage what you are allowed to manage. The famous poem by Rudyard Kipling says in part, “If you can keep your head, when all about you are losing theirs…” The poem ends saying, “If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds’ worth of distance, yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, and – which is more – you’ll be a man, my son!”
