The First, the Best, the Future!
Minnesota’s top clubs agreed to form a brand new, independent and first of its kind fastpitch organization, called Top Tier Fastpitch clubs.
Minnesota's First Fastpitch Club Program!
Originally founded in 1998, today High Impact Fastpitch formerly Minnesota Irish is now part of the High Impact Sports group as the oldest and most decorated fastpitch softball club in the history of Minnesota and the upper Midwest, and one of the most accomplished fastpitch softball clubs in the nation. In our 20 years, our teams have won more State and National Championships than any other fastpitch club in Minnesota! Last Summer our 16U Gold team captured the U.S.S.S.A. Class ‘A’ State Championship and U.S.S.S.A. Class ‘A’ Regional National Championship! Great job ladies!!!
Additionally, No club has placed more players in college Fastpitch programs, at all levels, than High Impact Fastpitch! In 2012, we placed 4 kids into Division 1-A programs, including one player to Alabama, who went on to win the NCAA D1-A National Championship that year. This year, one of our players (3-year Irish Member Jaime Barta from Bismark, ND) received a scholarship from D1-A North Dakota State University and finished in the Top 36 for the Canadian National Softball Team. How ‘bout that!
We feature strong teams, an exceptionally competitive schedule, quality instruction and a terrific environment for young players to learn the game and grow. Our culture includes teamwork, dedication, hard work, and lots of fun! Because of our commitment to success and advanced training, many elite players come a long way to be part of our program. In fact, our Club roster includes players from Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota and many more from out-state Minnesota.
