Player Bio

Hi! My name is Kylie Chung, and I am a pitcher and utility player for Firecrackers Rico/Weil. I am currently a senior at Westlake High School in Westlake Village, California, where I am currently maintaining a 4.82 GPA and on track to be a valedictorian. I am currently enrolled in 5 AP classes, already having taken 6 AP and 8 honors classes.

I have been playing softball for 12 years, beginning my 6th year playing travel. I joined Firecrackers Rico/Weil in the fall of 2020, previously having played for Ashley Creamer Elite Softball (ACES) of Southern California.

In addition to softball, I play water polo for the girl’s varsity team of my high school. I picked up water polo in my sophomore year after having a background in swimming from ages 5 to 12 years old. I have been the starting varsity goalie since I joined the team. I play water polo as a way to strengthen myself and improve my endurance.

Off the field, I have volunteered in local youth leagues. I umpired for 3 years before switching to coaching, helping as a hitting coach for one of the local recreational league teams. I also volunteer as a tutor, being a part of school tutoring centers as well as helping some of my peers, in Math, Spanish, and European History.
