2018 Lightning Tryout Information - Final Update

October 9, 2017

Final Update:

All 10U and 12U tryout participants should have received an email notifying you of your status.  We want to thank everyone again for their interest in the Lightning team and for your great effort at tryouts.

For all girls not selected, please look for registration in January for our standard rec-level teams.  All of our teams are together as part of Little Miami Fastpitch and even if you are not quite experienced enough for the competitive-level Lightning team, these teams remain a great opportunity to play softball and continue learning and gaining experience.  And we hold tryouts every season so we hope you come back next year!

As a reminder, due to registration and attendance numbers, we have decided to delay decisions on the 14U Lightning team until 2018.  We will still have a 14U team in Little Miami for 2018, but we will not be confirming a Lightning roster at this time.  Please look for registration in January and further information will be announced during/after registration.
