Premier Fastpitch
14U • 18U
Mattoon, Illinois

Premier Fastpitch began as one team in the fall of 2011. Premier Fastpitch is for players who want to push themselves to be better, not only as softball players, but as individuals. The organization’s goal is not only to prepare for the next level, but also to develop a passion for the game and a determination to win. “If you work hard good things will happen.”
The teams expect one hundred percent out of everyone from the moment players step on to the field. Players learn to focus on the small details and repetition will create good habits. Players will learn game situations and tactics to help them learn how to win against adversity.
Players encourage each other and play as a team, develop a good character and attitude, and be responsible and accountable for themselves. The coaches cherish the opportunity they have to develop a group of individuals in multiple aspects of life. They want each to walk away from this program as a better person.
Premier Fastpitch is based in Mattoon, IL and is coached by Kristi and Dan Paulson.

Premier Fastpitch now has three teams for the 2013-14 season, two 16s and a 14 and under team. The 2013 team will now compete as the Premier Fastpitch 16U Black Team and only lost two position players this past season but gained another pitcher and another strong player.

The 2013 Premier Fastpitch 16 and under team, comprised of mainly 14-15-year olds and only one 16-year old, finished it’s season with two tournament wins and a 49th place finish at 16U ASA “A” Nationals in Sunnyvale, CA. The 16s beat the Georgia Southern Force, Illinois Force, Extreme Elite and Midland Magic and finished in the top eight of their bracket at the Colorado Sparkler Tournament. The team was 70-23 for the season.
A number of Players have been honored with high school all-conference accolades as well as named to all-area-teams conducted by area and regional newspapers, most as freshman.
In 2012 at 14 and under, Premier was 67-13 winning 10 tournaments and the Illinois ASA “A” State and Illinois NSA “A” State titles. At 14U ASA Nationals in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Premier lost to eventual runners-up Team Arizona and was the second highest placing team from Illinois.
