Stay tuned for the website for any information on any open gyms or other opportunities (end of January at earliest). Signup for JM Spring softball will be open in late February, early March. Spread the word!!

2021 Spring Season / Spring Break:
MN High School League (MSHSL) approved the Spring calendar, with a start date of March 22nd for Softball -- which is about two weeks later than the normal start date. There is also talk ongoing of pushing back another week to March 29th (hopefully not).

Spring Break is set for Friday March 26th thru Friday April 2nd -- but we will practice during Spring Break. Most likely we will be off Fri March 26th thru Tue March 30th (maybe Wed March 31st). Please plan any Spring Break travel so that you will be back by Wed or Thurs of Spring Break week.

Games will start the first week of April so we need to be practicing and getting ready to hit the ground running. Most importantly, contact the coaches with known Spring Break conflicts asap. Thanks!

Captains for 2021 Season:
Coaches announced captains for next season via a Zoom yesterday. Congrats to the following 2021 Captains and we look forward to their leadership during the next year. They are a great resource for information to all players at all levels:
- Mikayla Gee
- Megan Ihrke
- Abby Miles

Varsity Game Scorecasts

Use the link below to see the iScore game information, replay, etc from all JM Softball varsity contests.  Generally the scorecast will only be available after the game has completed versus live scoring due to lack of internet connection from the venues.  But if we have a live connection you will be able to see live game scoring.

Anatomy Of Romero's Swing

Take a look at this great breakdown of one of the best hitters in softball - Sierra Romero from the University of Michigan.  A nice image of what she focuses on and feels on each swing, a video showing those points in motion.  She also discusses her mentality to her at bats.

Defying Doubt

Determination, hard work, belief in yourself can overcome doubts that others may see in you...
