Attention - Beginner Pitching Clinics - CANCELLED

UPDATE: The beginner pitching clinics have been cancelled due to lack of interest.

 

Coach John Donohue from Little Miami Fastpitch will be hosting weekly clinics in January/February for all beginner pitchers interested in learning basics of fastpitch pitching.  All beginners are welcome but we are especially looking to introduce pitching to those girls that will be playing 10U in 2018 (i.e. 9 and 10 year olds) as this age group requires players to pitch.  This is intended for beginners and no prior experience is necessary!

Key features of the clinics include:

  • Learn the fundamentals of fastpitch pitching
  • Learn the proper practice methods, drills, and techniques to get you ready for the season
  • Get a head start on the spring so you are setup for better success once the season starts!  It takes time and practice to learn fastpitch pitching!

 

The clinics will be held on the following nights:

Tuesday, January 9th

Wednesday, January 17th

Tuesday, January 23rd

Wednesday, January 31st

Tuesday, February 6th

Wednesday, February 14th

Tuesday, February 20th

Wednesday, February 28th

The clinics will run from 5:30 – 6:30 PM and are held at First Church of God in Morrow, OH (105 Lincoln St).

The cost for the clinics is $10 per session and we ask that you bring an adult catcher with you to each session (we encourage a parent to come if possible to also learn and be in a position to help your daughter practice at home).

If you have any questions, please contact John Donohue directly at jdonohue13@gmail.com or 513-264-5296.

In order to properly plan the clinics each week, you must RSVP to John in advance at the email or phone number listed above!

 


 

 

2018 Registration - Exciting Changes and Fee Information

Hello to all parents and players of Little Miami Fastpitch!

We want to continue to thank you for your interest and support in fastpitch softball in our Little Miami community.   We have experienced a lot of change and growth over the last couple seasons and continue to be amazed at the effort and talent of all the girls and families in the Little Miami community.

We have been working hard at the organizational level to respond to this interest and continue to improve and grow our organization to offer the best opportunities we can to the wonderful families in our community.  Some of the key efforts made over the past couple seasons include:

  • Revamped website to allow better communication, online schedules, online registration, etc
  • Increased marketing efforts to get the word out in the community
  • Improvements to the fields at Testerman park to help with playing conditions
  • Reinstatement of 6U teams
  • Lightning teams established to offer more competitive opportunities to players

With that said, we have so much more we hope to accomplish to make this the best community organization it can be.  We have many plans including an increase in organizational events, better/more field availability, increased social media presence, obtaining tax exempt status to greatly aid in fundraising/sponsorship/grant opportunities, and many, many more.  There are many things we can all do to make this organization even better!

With this in mind we have carefully evaluated our budget in comparison with our fee structure and have determined it will be necessary to slightly increase our fees starting with the 2018 season.  We feel our organization continues to offer a great value both for what the girls receive as well as in comparison to other community sports programs. As a reminder, we do not charge admissions to games nor do we have the ability to benefit from concession sales (and we don't ask you to volunteer for concession duty!).  So, when viewed in total, we still offer great value in comparison even with the necessary increase.

We will continue to offer sibling discounts for multi-player families and this season we will also offer an early bird registration discount.  Please check out the registration information for more details.

Thanks again for your effort, help, and interest in Little Miami Fastpitch.  We are excited for the future and will make every effort to make this the best community program we can.
