Atlanta Premier wants to thank Mr. JR Venza for his dedicated commitment to our organization over the last several years. Under JR’s leadership AP has managed to grow into one of the strongest brands/offering here in Georgia and in the Southeast. JR will remain on the board of directors of AP and coach our 18U Gold Team along w/Thompson. Moving forward AP would like to make the following appointments: Todd Ryman President atlpremierpresident@gmail.com, Shannon Dickerson EVP sdickerson1972@gmail.com, Ted Tillery VP tedtillery@cityofwinder.com, and Ron Walling Player’s agent/recruiting ap18uheadcoach@gmail.com. Please reach out to any of us if your daughter is looking for a team, if you are a coach looking for a new organization, or you have any other questions.

Atlanta Premier is an A level travel ball organization that has helped place a lot of it’s current and past players at the college level where they have continued playing their beloved sport. We are also active in the growth of our players not only for college but the rest of life. We also team up with the Positive Coaching Alliance, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, FloSoftball, and NFCA to help our girls w/the guidance of these valuable resources. We have sent several teams over the course of our history to Nationals and will certainly send a few of our teams this year to Nationals as well. We are an active sponsor and close friend w/the folks over at Legacy as well as their good partners at Scenic City and the Thunderbolts 5 star. We will have several of our older teams at these premier showcase events later this summer and many of them will be in the top pools at these events. Our organization continues to get stronger and stronger each single year.

We are looking for a few teams to round out our menu. All teams will be vetted amongst the board and scouted in play between now and the end of this season so please get us your confidential inquiries now.

As in the past Atlanta Premier teams are sponsored by the Wilson Corporation who owns Wilson, DeMarini, and Louisville Slugger 3 of the best brands in our sport. Each AP player will receive a player package each September that consists of a new bat, helmet, bat bag, 5 jersey tops, 3 mizuno pants, and other accessories items. This package is unique to us and we find that our parents and players really enjoy this special perk afforded to us from the Wilson Corporation and or friends over at Elite Sporting Goods in Lawrenceville. This year each coach will receive a bownet and a 1/2 dozen sand balls.

Our organizational tryouts for the 2017/2018 season will be the 1st weekend in August and then individual team tryouts after that. Please check back in a few weeks for firm dates, locales, and times.

Please give us a look if you’re a coach or a player looking for a great organization.

See you around the fields,

Todd Ryman
