222’s Fastpitch Shootout Results!

First of all a huge thank  you to Melfort Minor Softball Association for all the hard work they did in Hosting the 2017 222’s Fastpitch Shootout!

The weather did us a huge favor, and stayed a way for the most part, and allowed us to get in some incredible ball games. The sun came out just in time for the Skills competition, which definitely was one of the highlights, for not only the players, but for the fans and parents watching as well.

Skills Competition Results:

U12 Division – PA Aces

U14 Division – Saskatoon Phantoms

U16 Division – the hometown Melfort Spirit

The playoff round began on Sunday, with some great competition. Two of our three finals needed extra innings to crown the winners.

Tournament Results:

U12 Division – PA Aces defeated a very tough Regina Fighting Saints team in the Final. This was the first year for our U12 Division, and it did not disappoint. Some great ball was played by some of our future softball stars!

In the U14 Division, it took 8 innings to decide the winner between the Lumsden Cubs and the Sasktoon Raiders. What a final! The score was 3 to 3 after 7 innings of ball. In the first extra inning, Lumsden pulled ahead with two runs. Saskatoon, was unable to push any runs across in their half of the 8th inning, which gave Lumsden the win. This was a very exciting game, that had the fans on the edge of their seats all the way through!

And finally, the U16 Division. What a finish to an already great weekend of fastball. The final in the U16 Division had the Estevan Southside Slammers vs the Saskatoon Lasers. This game had some amazing pitching and defense from both teams. The Lasers jumped out to a 1 to 0 lead after the very first inning…and that was all the scoring until Estevan pushed a run across in the bottom of the 7th inning to tie the game. So into Extra innings we went. Neither team was able to push a run across in the 8th inning, and some great pitching and defense kept the Lasers off the score book, in the top half of the 9th inning. In the bottom of the 9th, Estevan was able to score, capturing the tournament Championship. The game definitely was the talk around many coffee tables on Monday morning.

And Finally, Good luck to all teams on the remainder of their Softball Season!

Faces of 222’s Fastpitch – Volume 1

What is awesome to see is so many of our 222’s Family out and about performing well on so many teams. We got many of these pics from the Saskatoon Presidents tourney. I thought it would be cool to get a bunch of pics for the site…until I saw how many of our kids were in attendance!! Sorry for many who we missed, but thanks to all those who sent pics in to me.

Keep working hard 222’s, you looked great out there!!

And I gotta say, Morgan Walter, what a catch!!

Big Weekend for many 222’s Fastpitch Players!

222s-logo-red-page-001

This weekend is the Saskatoon President’s Tournament, and this year it will have a record number of players participating, that have ties to 222’s Fastpitch! Teams will come from all over Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba and play in the U12, U14, U16, and U18 Age divisions.

Players from 222’s Fastpitch Winter Training and Winter Teams are spread out over many of the teams participating in the tournament. This tournament is one of the first big tests of the Summer Season, and a great opportunity for players to prove what they have learned over the past 8 months of training from their 222’s Fastpitch Instructors.

Of course the tournament will have only one winner in each age division, but we want to wish all of our 222’s Fastpitch participants the best of luck. Trust what you have learned this winter, and do your very best… no one can ask for anything more.

Good luck to all the teams participating, 222’s Fastpitch Instructors will be in attendance to cheer you on!

Thank you Estevan and Oxbow!

222’s Fastpitch wants to thank Estevan and Oxbow for hosting 222’s Fastpitch camps on May 6th, and May 7th, 2017. Two great groups of kids attended the one day camps. 222’s Fastpitch really enjoyed the weekend, and look forward to hosting camps again in the future.

We want to wish you all the best in your upcoming Softball Season. We hope to see you at another 222’s Fastpitch event in the future!

In 2017-2018, we have two separate North and South groups.

  1. North Sessions – There will be 10 sessions based out of the Saskatoon/Warman/Martensville areas
  2. South Sessions – There will be 10 sessions based out of the Moose Jaw / Regina areas

** The cost for either of these sessions is $800.00 + GST. If registration and full payment prior to August 31st, 2017, you qualify for a $50.00 early bird discount.

** Those that participate in either the north or south WTS may have the option to drop in at the other location for a drop in fee of $80.00 – So for example, if someone would still like to attend extra sessions, they would pay the $80 for each additional Session. This option depends on how full our Winter Training Sessions are. Call for inquiries.

A few updates for 2017-2018 WTS:

  1. Sessions are 4 hours long on weekends, and if we get together during the week will be 3 hours sessions. (There will not be more than 3 mid week sessions)
  2. There is a physical fitness and testing aspect of our training sessions as well. However, the physical fitness and testing is not completed each session, rather every 2 or 3 sessions.
  3. We have requested an increase in fees from $750 to $800 for those making payments throughout the winter. There is no increase in payment, if made by the early bird deadline of August 31st, 2017.

WTS 2017 – 2018 is now OPEN for REGISTRATION.
