Cardinal Power Families,
The board has collected input from many of you, researched health expert guidelines, listened to the governor's directions, and put considerable thought into the current situation. Our number one priority is the safety of our players, families, coaches, and community. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our tournament for this summer.
We are still holding out hope that we'll have some form of a season. This will depend on field availability, further direction from the governor, and decisions made by the Southern Star league. There is a league meeting this coming Sunday night. We will continue to provide you updates as soon as we receive new information. As of right now, it is extremely unlikely that there will be any softball games or practices until at least July 1.

While we are in somewhat of a holding pattern in terms of moving forward "as normal" -- we wanted to provide an update to our summer softball community. As an organization, we are still hopeful that the season can occur as planned, unless conditions warrant otherwise. That said, registration is still open. If you have not registered yet, please do so as soon as possible. We have waived the April 1st due increase. In the event the season is canceled, we will process refunds as appropriate.
Register using the link below. Once you have registered, you are eligible to participate in our fundraiser. The first 5 fundraiser cards are free with your registration. Sell them for $20 each, keep the money, and you've offset your tournament work fee. You are allowed to purchase up to 10 additional cards.

Cardinal Power Fastpitch
We've come a long ways. So many families involved and so many great memories already. Even a National Championship in 2019.
Thank you to all our families.
Turf From Super Bowl at the Bank
The 16/18u team played Jackson on July 8th in Mankato. One of the highlights was meeting some of the Australian National team after our game. The Aussies are staying at Bethany College in Mankato this summer. Practicing on their facilities and using their weight rooms and training rooms as they prepare for the 2020 Olympics.
The Cardinal Power 14u team got a real treat when three members of the Aussie Peppers professional fastpitch team came into our dugout. Jess, Jordan, and Nicole spent an inning in our dugout, and then were kind enough to join us for a group photo after the games. Thanks, ladies, and good luck this season!
To work closely with the Fairmont High School Program to provide a place for girls in Southern Minnesota to learn the skills necessary to compete at a high level in a fun, safe, positive team environment both on and off the field.
Cardinal Power Fastpitch is a 501 (c) (3) that was started in 2016. Many volunteer hours and thousands of dollars were invested by board members and sponsors to get the program up and running by day one.
