April is finally here! That means we are officially now just a month away from the start of the 2017 season. We see on social media many teams working hard and getting ready for the season, with indoor gym sessions, batting cage times and pitcher/catcher throwing sessions. Looks like we will have a great spring/summer of softball across all age groups and across Ontario.
UTM Fastpitch will be here all season long to keep you up to date on all the happenings from U10 right up to U18. Keep us informed by sharing your updates with us! We look forward to seeing and hearing all kinds of great things on and off the field of play this year!

Minnesota Golden Gopher, and Team Canada stand-out softball pitcher Sara Groenewegen deals with Type I diabetes as a part of her everyday life. But it hasn't stopped her from becoming one of the Big Ten's best pitchers AND hitters.
March 11 & 12 UTM Fastpitch, along with the assistance of the Aurora Diggers U16 team -- put on the largest indoor tournament of the winter in Ontario. Held in Barrie - UTM March Madness, had 24 teams from across Ontario, U12 to U18 divisions competing in a series of games at the Barrie Sports Dome. The event included many corporate sponsors including Mr. Sub, Old Time Candy, Good Life Fitness, and several others!
The event was a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society, and when the final numbers were in... the event raised $2,600.00 for the charity. An awesome contribution to a charity that helps fight a disease that has likely touched almost everyone in some form or another over their lives.
We are looking ahead and already planning the next indoor tournament for 2018. Could we make the event even bigger and better next year? Time will tell... keep watching utmfastpitch.com for the latest news and info.
With the move to the new site we are going to re-vamp the UTM Player Radar Profiles that we launched in the fall. These will soon come back online with a consistent look and format. For those players that were using their player page in marketing material etc. you will soon have a new URL to link to. Keep checking the home page for the re-launch in the next couple of weeks.
