Our mission is to develop competitive female student-athletes and promote lifelong qualities of sportsmanship, teamwork, commitment, leadership, respect, and integrity.
The Crush Tidal Waves Girl's Fastpitch Organization is a premier girls fastpitch organization in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. We are proud to have 11 teams and athletes ranging in age from 10 to 18.
The Crush Tidal Waves organization offers a 12-month training program that includes indoor and outdoor practice facilities. Each team plays 60-75 games per season.
Originally founded in 1990 as the Crystal Lake Tidal Waves, the organization would later merge in 2014 with the Cary Crush to become what is known today as The Crush Tidal Waves Fastpitch Organization. Our teams compete in some of the highest level tournaments each year across a multitude of organizations (PGF, USSSA, NAFA, and ASA). Many Crush Tidal Wave high school players earn "All Conference" status and go on to play at the collegiate level.

As an organization, the Crush Tidal Waves strive to encourage each and every player to meet their full potential and be all they can be. Tidal Wave players are encouraged to be great students as well as great softball players.
