Arkansas Phenix : Welcome

Arkansas Phenix Softball Organization

Arkansas Phenix was originally founded by Brent Mills.  Brent originally put together the Heartbreakers  to provide young female athletes from Arkansas a team to play the sport they love at a competitive level.  As the girls grew up, the team organization took shape and became the Arkansas Phenix. 

Arkansas Phenix Gold has grown to be recognized as one of the top up and coming teams in the nation.  We compete against the best teams from across the USA.  We are dedicated to putting Arkansas fastpitch on the map.  We compete on a national level with select invites from the Colorado Fireworks, Ronald McDonald, Hawaii Kaikamahine Showcase, Pennsylvania Invitational, etc...  We encourage athletes from the state of Arkansas and surrounding states that are ready to take that next step and want to truly compete on a national level and showcase their skills in front of college coaches from all levels to contact us.  Please refer to the college commitment page to see the athletes that have chosen to take their athletic career to the next level. 

Arkansas Phenix is dedicated to helping young athletes reach their goals of playing at the collegiate level.  We believe to be our best we must play the best!  By playing the best, this gives our athletes a chance to showcase their skill.  We truly believe that playing a team sport at a competitive level helps to teach our young ladies the critical life lessons that they will need as adults.  Arkansas Phenix believes that softball teaches more than just softball skills.  It teaches leadership, commitment, how to overcome adversity, character, how to carry oneself on and off the field, and the value of supporting one another.  Arkansas Phenix knows that finding the right college is a long process and should not be taken lightly.  We are committed to helping the athlete find the right collegiate fit for her and her family.   

Recruiting is headed by Coach Monty Littlefield and the organization's manager Perry Horton. 

The Arkansas Phenix Gold is coached by Monty Littlefield and assistant coach DeWayne Wagnon.  

The Arkansas Phenix 16U is Coached by Brian Kinsey. 

The Arkansas Phenix 14U is coached by Charlie Sticklen.


You are a Winner because, ...

Winners take chances.  Like everyone else they fear failing, but they refuse to let that fear contol them.

Winners don't give up.  When the going gets tough they fight harder and they find a way until the going gets better

Winners are flexible.  They realize that there is more than just one way, and they keep working hard until they find a way that works.

Winners know that they are not perfect.  They respect their weaknesses, but are sure to make the most of their strengths.

Winners accept responsibility.  Winners don't blame fate for their failures, nor luck for their success.

Winners are positive thinkers.  They find good things in all and take their negative energy and focus it into a positive.

Winners believe in themselves.  They believe that they have only failed if they have failed to try.

Winners are patient.  They know a goal is only as worthy as the effort that's required to achieve it.
