A Little "Fire" History

Our organization began with one 10U team in the summer of 2007 as the vision of a few coaches who are passionate about girls softball. That first season proved to be a success as we witnessed this group of girls grow as a team. Our organization continues to grow, reflecting the increased interest in the sport.


All serious daring starts from within. - Harriet Beecher Stowe

Ingenuity, plus courage, plus work, equals miracles.
-Bob Richards, Pole Vaulter  

Whoever said anybody has a right to give up? - Marian Wright Edelman

Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. - Winston Churchill


"Quitting is only a shortcut to losing."

Great organizations demand a high level of commitment by the people involved.  - Bill Gates

There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or youre OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.
-Pat Riley 

Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.  - Vince Lombardi


Treat others as you want them to treat you because what goes around comes around - Unknown

Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners. - Laurence Sterne

"The more honor and respect among the players, the greater the team."

 "Good coaching is about leadership and instilling respect in your players. Dictators lead through fear--good coaches do not."
---John Wooden



Being a good sport means treating your teammates, coaches and opponents with respect.

One man practicing sportsmanship is better than a hundred teaching it.
-- Knute Rockne
