2020 Junior High Club Team - Tryout Information

January 29, 2020

As softball is not a sanctioned sport at Little Miami Jr High, Little Miami Fastpitch sponsors a Jr High Club program to give girls opportunities to play with their classmates and represent their school against other schools in the area.  This opportunity is available for all girls in 7th or 8th grade living in the Little Miami school district.  This season runs March to early May.  Girls may participate on these teams in addition to a rec team, a Lightning team, or a sanctioned travel team. 

Based on all the girls that indicated interest, we are expecting to field 2 teams this year, and each team will likely be a mix of 7th and 8th graders. Teams will be assigned in a way to both maximize development opportunities for all players and ensure competitiveness for each team.  The Jr High Club program is intended to give girls the opportunity to play together with other girls from Little Miami and to prepare for the High School softball experience. As such, decisions on rosters, team splits, etc are made with the best interest of the overall program in mind and with guidance from the High School coaches.  Players will be assigned to a specific team based on a multitude of factors that are aligned between LMFP and the High School coaches. Players that complete tryouts and are selected for a team will be assigned to a specific roster on which they are expected to play.

Tryouts for the Jr High Club teams will be held March 2-5.  As we are expecting a large turnout, we will split up the days as follows (please read carefully):

Monday, March 2:  All girls with last name beginning with letters A-Q

Tuesday, March 3:  All girls with last name beginning with letters R-Z

* On Tuesday evening, initial roster decisions will be made.  We will post online all girls that should continue with tryouts on Wednesday (3/4) and Thursday (3/5).  After tryouts are completed on Thursday (3/5), final roster decisions will be made and all girls that made a team as well as which team they are assigned to will be posted online.

Tryouts will go from 5:30 to 8:00 each night, though girls that are not pitchers or catchers may be finished earlier.

Tryouts are held in the Little Miami Jr High gym.

Tryouts are closed to players and coaches only (parents may wait in the cafeteria if they like).
