COACHES: 16u Sundodgers Wright/Rasmussen will be coached by Shawna Wright, Carli Rasmussen, Jake Williams & Nikki Larsen

Shawna founded Sundodgers Softball in 2013, and has coached 14u, 16u and 18u Sundodgers teams. She has lead several Sundodgers teams to compete at USA, PGF, and Alliance Nationals. As a player, Shawna is an alumni of the University of Washington where she played catcher, took two trips to the WCWS, earned PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year, and won a PAC-10 Championship. 

Carli has been coaching Sundodgers 16u since 2015 and co-head coached Sundodgers 18u and 14 this past season. She has helped several Sundodgers prepare for their next level.  As a player, Carli was a two sport collegiate athlete at PLU in soccer and softball, earning team captain for both teams.

Recruiting tourneys are “stay to play” tourneys. Meaning we have to stay in certain hotels they choose, or the team can pay a fine to stay somewhere else. This means all players must stay in team hotel. While on the road, it is a business trip. We like to model it after a college road series. We hold team meetings, practices, or team bonding to fill any free time if game schedules permit. 

ORPHANS: There will be no orphans for 16u

COMPENSATE AND ADJUST: Sundodgers families have to have the ability to compensate and adjust. Later tourneys are determined by qualifying status. Whether we qualify or not will determine future tourney schedule. Saturday practices are determined by weather. STAY ON YOUR TOES! 


Coaches will clearly lay out the steps of the process and help girls confidently take on each step. Players will have someone who has walked the path and has been through the recruiting process to help them along the journey. Sundodgers have former college athletes leading them, all who have personal connections to schools across the country. Coaches trust our opinion on players because they have seen us play and know we understand the game and what it takes to play at the next level. We will do everything in our power to help our players reach their goals! *See for our list of alumni!
