Raffle Calendars

Fundraising this year will be selling our raffle calendars. The Money giveaway starts the first day of the practice season so it is good to start selling the calendars early. They are now available at Homer Medical if you want to get them in packs of 10. I expect ( depending on player turnout) that we will be aiming for each player selling 25-30 of the calendars. If your parents want to sell them at place of business that can be arranged also. There is a 1:10 chance of winning money and the average return will be over three times what they pay for the calendar.

"Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control, and some things are not. It is only after you have faced up to this fundamental rule and learned to distinguish between what you can and can't control that inner tranquility and outer-effectiveness become possible."
-- Epictetus.

More incredible life advice from Cindy- Her teaching and voice stay with us




One of my goals as a coach is to teach you that you always have a choice in thoughts, attitudes and approach to life. Maybe the result will not be perfect but at least it will be you directing your life. Here is a summary of thinking that process through.



Your Core is the Secret to our team success.

ATR 4pm Tuesday and Thursday is available to you

Where do you find a strong core? Not on a couch. Not in math class. Not at the mall.

ATR will provide you with an unbeatable core for only the price of a little sweat.

MJ welcomes all softball players. Please start now to get us the stongest Team core in the state.

THE Six important words from Parents


Practice without progress is meaningless

Practice without Intensity is an insult to your teammates

Reaching for Excellence

Thank our sponsors, they help make it all possible

And especially, Thanks to our Parents for support

If you have a plan for improvement, have you put it in motion?

Control what you can control-effort, intensity, focus, self-critique
