Wecome Back!! The new school year has started and we are sure everyone is thrilled to be back.  Stay tuned to our Facebook Group for information on opportunities this fall to hit and our practice.

Fall Field Cleanup: we will schedule a weekend to "winterize" our varsity softball field, which includes cleaning up the storage sheds, taking down the batting cage netting, organizing equipment and some yard work  Stay tuned and help out if you are able -- most likely end of Sept or early Oct.

Dome Ball League: we are still waiting to hear on plans for Dome Ball league from the league organizers.  At this point we don't have any details to share.  JM will have a team organized by a few parents and the team formation will start with returning JM Varsity team members from last year.  Once info is available we will post on the website.

Concession Stand Fundraiser: the JM Softball program will be doing concessions on Tues Dec 6th during a girls basketball game & swim/dive meet.  More details to follow but please volunteer and help out if you can.

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.

Motivate Yourself To Be Your Best

What are you going to do with your chance:

One day you won't ... so give it all today:

Believe in yourself.  Focus on yourself.  Motivate yourself.

What kind of teammate are you...

"I'm looking for players who make their teammates better. You do that with enthusiasm and passion ..."  Mike Kryzewski

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...
