The Ulster Fillies Organization represents age groups from 10U through 18U.

Our players come from all over the Hudson Valley area to compete and play alongside the best in their age groups. Our goal is to assist our players in building the skill set to attain their goal of playing college softball. Recruiting and exposure is all about putting yourself in a position to be seen.

Tryout Schedule
2022-2023 Season


Tuesday July 19th, Thursday July 21st and Tuesday August 2nd

*(Rain Date for 8/2 is Thursday August 4th)

Times: 6:00PM to 8:00PM each evening

Location: Ross Park   Bowne Street   Port Ewen, NY 12466

***We are looking to form two teams from tryouts:

- The first will be an age specific 16U showcase team which will concentrate on advocating for our players and providing 

proper guidance in the college recruitment process while competing in a college showcase schedule. All the tools, college

level instruction and connections we have that has worked for our former Fillies who went on to play collegiately will be 

given to our 16U players and families in helping them achieve their future student/athlete dreams.


- The goal of our 16U/18U team will be to continue to help those who aspire to play at the college level as well as keep those ready who have already found their college teams.  It's also designed for all those who love the game and want to continue to play competitive travel softball, but who may be undecided about or will not have softball in their collegiate future.  The same level of instruction and advocacy for those still looking at colleges will be given to our 16U/18U team.


BOTH teams are expected to participate in a Nationals event to conclude the 2022/2023 season.



16U - Rick Spriggs, Mike Chilcott, Tori Decker and Jess Chilcott

18U - Mike Starego and Sally Filancia 


Note - Coach Filancia will also be coaching our Ulster Fillies 18U College team in the Summer of 2023.  She will be a coach 

for the 16U/18U team during the Fall/Winter seasons and will maintain an active role on the 16U/18U throughout the Summer.

Please contact Rick Spriggs at (845)399-8162 or if you have any questions.

18U questions can also be directed to Mike Starego at (845)249-5971 or
