Gerry Mauro to coach the new 23U Cheetah Team

The New Jersey Cheetahs take great pride in announcing that Gerry Mauro will serve as the head coach for the new 23U Cheetah team. Coach Mauro has over 30 years of experience coaching and training professional athletes. Most recently, in 2009, Mauro severed as head coach of the Philadelphia Force Women's Professional Softball Team. He was also co-head coach at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia where he helped the Hawks become a dominant force in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Saint Joseph's improved by over 100 points in RPI during his tenure, with players leading the nation in batting average and earning many accolades as well as player of the year honors.

With the success of the NJ Cheetah Program, there has been a high demand for a 23U team to compete in New Jersey during the summer. This team will particpate in weekly league games, will participate in weekly training sessions, and will have unlimited access to our indoor facility. This is a great opportunity for local college players who want to keep up their skills over the summer. The 23U season will run from mid-June to the end of July.
