2021 Junior High Club Team Information and Sign Up

September 28, 2020

As softball is not an officially sanctioned sport at Little Miami Jr High, Little Miami Fastpitch coordinates and sponsors a Jr High Club team 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.  Tryouts for the Jr High Club team(s) are held at the beginning of March.

It is critically important that we understand how many girls are interested in trying out for these team(s) in the fall in order to plan for how many teams to schedule, plan for facility usage, finalize coaches, etc.  To that end, we are asking you to register to indicate your intent to try out for the team (and play on the team if invited).  You may do so by clicking HERE  Please do this ASAP if you are interested in playing.


For more information on the Jr High Club team, please check out the Jr High Club team page on the Menu (Pages -> Jr High Club Team) or click HERE.



2021 Lightning Information

August 27, 2020
Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of the 2020 rec season, we are also adjusting how Lightning teams may be formed for the 2020-21 season.
For 10U (birth years 2010 and 2011, or 2012 that might want to play up):
If your daughter is interested in playing 10U fastpitch (10 and under as of Dec. 31, 2020) at a competitive level in 2021, please join the Lightning coaches for a workout on Tuesday 9/8, and Monday 9/14.
This is not an official tryout but instead a time to gauge interest and ability and help determine if there are enough girls to form a competitive team for the 2021 season. Many girls were unable to play this summer, so this gives girls a chance to practice with the coaches and see if playing on a competitive team could be a good fit.
After the two days, the Lightning coaches may extend invitations to play. There will be another tryout in the spring for additional spots if needed.
Please have the girls wear sliding/softball pants and long socks with cleats.
Pitchers and catchers arrive at 5:30. Everyone else arrives at 6:00. The workout will end at 7:30.
If you have any questions about 10U Lightning, please reach out to coach Tara Morris (
For 12U (birth years 2009 and 2008):
We are seeking someone interested in coaching a potential 12U Lightning team in 2021.  Please email if interested.  At this moment, we plan to hold evaluations/tryouts in the spring during/after registration.
 For 14U (birth years 2007 and 2006):
Any decisions on this age group will be made in the spring during/after registration.

Looking Forward to 2021

While we are still disappointed in how the events of 2020 have affected our softball season, we are hopeful for a more stable situation and looking forward to returning in 2021.

Please look for the following as we move to 2021:

  • Registration for spring/summer 2021 teams begins in early January
  • Tryouts for Jr High Club teams will be end of February/beginning of March.  We will likely hold an information night in October, pending possible COVID restrictions.


For anyone with a 2020 credit to apply to 2021, rest assured we will make sure you receive information about 2021 directly as well.


We look forward to seeing you again in 2021!
