Since 1996, the NorCal Shockers have fielded teams in the East Bay Area that have helped many young athletes realize their dreams of playing collegiate softball. The organization was founded and based in Martinez, CA. for many years and was counted as one of the premier competitive softball teams in Northern California. Over the years, the Shockers have fielded various teams in all age divisions from 10U up through 18U Gold any many of the past teams have competed in some of the highest level tournaments including ASA Nationals and PGF Premier Nationals in Southern California. Many Shockers athletes have gone on to compete at NCAA Division I, II, II and NAIA level. Going from the old “Teal & Black” colors up through the current “Shockers Blue & Gold” colors, the organization has continued to offer young ladies the opportunity to receive top coaching and improve their skills while having fun with their teammates.
