REGISTRATION FOR MINOT STORM FASTPITCH WILL CLOSE ON MAY 14, 2021.

Welcome to the 2021 season of Minot Storm Fastpitch. 

Minot Storm Fastpitch is a travel program intended to provide an opportunity to play against teams from other communities and expose the girls to a competitive level of fastpitch.

Eligibility:
All players in 10U, 12U and 14U ages must be registered in Magic City Youth Fastpitch summer league to be eligible for participation in Minot Storm program.  16U and 18U are encouraged to play in summer program, but not required to play.

Players:
Players need to register for Minot Storm Fastpitch on the registration page.

The player's abilities will be evaluated by their past performance in summer league as well as practices and games throughout the spring fastpitch season for 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U ages.

Selections at the 10U age level will be based on past performance in summer league and practices. There will also be evaluation nights to be determined at a later date.

Once teams are selected the players will be notified.

Teams:
10U: two teams - one team each in A and B divisions

12U: two teams - one team each in A and B divisions

14U: two teams - one team each in A and B divisions

16U: one team - team will play in the A division

18U B: one team - this team is determined by registration numbers.  We will do everything possible to field this 3rd team at the older age group.

18U A: one team - team will play in the A division

Maximum number of players per team will be 12. Teams may have have fewer than 12 but no less than 10.

Play:
Teams will practice starting in late May and throughout the season. The season will end with the State Tournament, July 16-18 in Bismarck.

All team members will play in each game. Play will be equitable with the understanding that there are fewer players that play the positions of pitcher and catcher and games can end early due to the run rule. The purpose for this program is for every girl to experience competitive level fastpitch.

All teams will play 3-5 games in the Bismarck Early Bird Tournament on June 12-13. 16U and 18U may play in this tournament.  This is determined once Bismarck Youth Fastpitch decides if they will have older age groups.

We will work to schedule games against communities including Bottineau, Mohall, Stanley, Kenmare, Watford City, Grand Forks, Devils Lake, Jamestown, Williston, Dickinson, Mandan, Bismarck and Canadian teams as schedules permit.

The Minot Storm Tournament is scheduled for June 19-20. All teams will play 3-5 games in this tournament. We will need volunteers to help run this tournament.

Mt. Rushmore Classic in Rapid City, June 25-27.  All Minot Storm teams will attend with the exception of the 10U B team. Registration for this tournament is done in November of preceding year.  We may alter team rosters for this tournament if necessary to ensure all teams can attend.

All teams will play 3-5 games in the North Dakota Junior Olympic State Tournament in Bismarck the weekend of July 9-10-11.
