JV-Squad News

In 2023 -- we do not have enough players (pitchers) for three squads.  Thus we will have a Varsity squad and a B/C-Squad team.  We will attempt to play a limited JV schedule using Varsity team members who are not starters and some B/C-Squad team members.  So stay tuned for details as we go thru season.

The only games on the JV-Squad Game Schedule tab are those extra games which are "JV only".  For most games, please refer to the B/C-Squad schedule -- which will reflect Big Nine game schedules (both B/C and JV games).  Go Rockets!

News / Updates

Welcome to 2024! The Spring season will be here before we know it -- with practice starting on March 11th. Stay tuned as there are important deadlines leading to that start.

Now OPEN - Spring Sports Registration.
Opened Monday February 19th.  Please spread the word!

Now is a good time to get the word out to team mates, old and new, to drive as many athletes to join our team and program. We need to build our numbers -- and get back to having enough players to field three full squads. Spread the word, especially for the younger age groups (7th, 8th, 9th). If you have questions -- please email jmfastpitch@gmail.com and engage with us.

Registration closes on February 29th -- take care of this NOW!
