2020 Lightning Tryout Information
Tryouts for the 2020 Little Miami Lightning teams will be held later this summer/fall, likely around mid-September. Exact dates and details will be shared as we get closer to that time.
For more information on our Lightning teams, please check out the Little Miami Lightning page on the website (Pages -> Little Miami Lightning in the menu or click HERE).
2019 Fall Softball Opportunities
The NCSL (our community rec league) does not host a league during the fall season. As such, Little Miami Fastpitch does not have registration for fall. We do support coaches that want to put together teams and participate in one of the local leagues available in Mason or Lebanon.
If you are interested in playing softball in the fall, please reach out to your spring coach to see if they will be organizing a team in the fall. Even if they are not, they should be able to help put you in contact with another Little Miami coach that is organizing a team.
If you did not play in the spring or have not heard anything from your spring coach, you can email Chad Thieme (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will attempt to put you in contact with any coaches that I am aware of who will be organizing a team. This is not a guarantee you can be placed on a team but I will do my best to put people in contact with each other. If you did not coach in the spring but are willing to coach a fall team, please contact me and I can explain the options available.
Alternatively, in case you can not find a Little Miami team, you may be able to register with the Mason league directly by clicking here and you will be placed on a team.
The fall is an extra opportunity to get more experience for the next season (not an extension of the spring season), thus girls play in the fall at the age group they will play in Spring 2020! Here are the respective birth years for each age group for Fall 2019/Spring 2020:
8U (11 and 12)
10U (09 and 10)
12U (07 and 08)
14U (05 and 06)
HS (04 and older)
Thanks for a great spring season and good luck if you are playing this fall!
Marco's Fundraiser Cards
LMFP has again partnered with Marco's Pizza to offer an exciting fundraiser for the 2019 season. We will be selling Marco's coupon cards, with a very large percentage of the proceeds directly benefiting Little Miami Fastpitch. These cards offer substantial savings of over $100. The coupons are primarily "buy 1 get 1 free" offers and provide great savings opportunities. They really will pay for themselves with only 1 or 2 uses.
The cards sell for only $10 each with most of that directly benefiting our organization.
This season the cards (through the generous support of the concessions operator) will be sold at the concession stand at Testerman Park (open for all games). If interested, please just stop by and ask to purchase a card. Spread the word to friends/family as well. This is an easy opportunity to support the organization while also saving money.
