Huge News For the Hickman Sports Complex-We Have a Start Date For Our 8 Million Dollar Project July 2020

It has been a long process but after 6 years of planning and working out details the City of San Diego is moving forward with our project to improve the 47 acre Hickman facility. Very exciting!

It is a 5 Phase plan which we will start Phase 1 in July of this year 2020. We go to bid on the Phase 1 part of the plan this February. We decide on the bid by June and work begins July if all goes as planned.

What is in the plan?

No more dirt roads!

-The entire complex will be paved with much needed parking for hundreds of vehicles. Curbs, painted parking spots, turnarounds will be included.
-Infrastructure will be put under the parking lot for Sewage, Electrical, Potable Water.
-There will be parking lot lighting for the entire park which will make our Hickman facility much safer.
-We will be adding two very much needed permanent bathroom facilities.

That is 8 million dollars for the first Phase.

We will be planning the next couple phases and the City is planning to help raise money for the next phases. But we at Hickman will have to do fundraising and other ways to raise that money. We look forward to our next opportunity and working with the City to better our park.

We would lastly like to thank Councilmember Chris Cate and the rest of the City staff for their hard work in raising money and making this happen.

Coach Scott Berndes Honored by ExtraInnings Softball

Coach Scott Berndes Honored by ExtraInnings Softball Top 100 Rankings

23—Scott Berndes (Power Surge 12U)

Coach Berndes, a former D1 college baseball pitcher who started coaching softball when his daughters got old enough, has been a club coach for 22 years and he’s had tons of success with young players. He’s had 20 straight years of Top 20 finishes at Nationals, two national championships, a runner-up finish at PGF Nationals and two Triple Crown World Series titles. Some of the top players that have come through his program are Lisa Dodd (UCLA), Selina Ta’amilo (UCLA), Carlee Wallace (Auburn), Summer Hargett (Northwestern) and Hannah McEwen (Arkansas). “Play the best to be the best,” Berndes said. “I am not a Lou Holtz trying to downplay everything. I love a target on our backs as it means teams are trying to catch up with us. … Make practice fun. Do not replicate practices. Change them up. Make it interesting. Most practice should be station teaching. No standing around. … One of my goals and it challenges me every day is to make sure to teach something new every day in practice. Been doing this for 20 years, so it isn’t easy.”
