Our Mission

We are a competitive, tournament only fastpitch travel organization. Rage Fastpitch was formed in 2009 by a group of dedicated long time coaches and volunteers who were looking to offer a clean wholesome and fiercely competitive – PLAYER FIRST-Fastpitch organization. This in itself seems to be rare in sports. 


Michigan Rage lets our actions speak for themselves. We incorporate principals of practical sound judgment, fiscal and administrative experience. This experience allows us to choose the best coaches and organizational leaders to make the player and parents experience with the RAGE a lifelong positive experience. 

Our teams will compete at a high level of available tournaments and offer offseason workout facilities.


Rage Fastpitch’s idea of the perfect game is one in which only the players and the game are noticed; the coaches and umpires seem to disappear. Softball is fun because of the relationships that are formed on the field, the team unity, and the ability to accomplish a common goal together as a team. While a member of Rage Fastpitch, our players will learn about commitment, success, respect, pride, and responsibility. 



The purpose of this policy is to create a fair and consistent way to collect fees while establishing guidelines and expectations for both parents and coaches.  We realize that players and their families sometimes suffer financial hardships.  For that reason, we offer several options such as sponsorships and fundraising to assist in obtaining assistance in paying player fees.

Player Fee:

$650 per player plus a $26.12 online processing fee. Price includes a helmet, two pairs of pants, two personalized jerseys, two pair of socks, t-shirt, window decal, team access to the indoor practice facility and a team tournament budget of $3550.  

Payment Schedule:

Upon Contract Signing - $100 plus a $26.12 processing fee will be applied to the first payment

September 15th - $183.33

November 15th - $183.33

January 15th - $183.34

If a player leaves the organization prior to the payment due dates, scheduled payments will be canceled.

Team Fund Raising Fee:

$1000 per team per season. Due each season by December 1st.

Sponsorship Fees:

100 percent of all sponsorship monies received will go directly to the player receiving the sponsorship. Only money paid by participant can be refunded, no sponsorship money can be refunded as cash. Sponsor money above the $650 player fee can be used for softball related items and activities and will require a receipt submission.

Uniform Order:

The initial uniform order will placed in January.  If players are added after this time additional fees that are incurred may be charged to the player.

Tournament Payments:

Each team will be allotted a tournament budget of $3,550 based on 12 players minus $250 for each player under 12 players. (Example: if a team has 11 players, their tournament budget will be $3,300). This will be available upon the payment completion of all players on that specific team as well as the $1000 team fund raising fee.  After January 15th, a team will have access to its tournament budget to pay for tournaments, minus the amount of money outstanding by the players on that specific team as well as the team fund raising fee.  (For instance: If a team has a player still owing $175, that team will have access to tournament money of $3550 - $175 for a total of $3375).  Teams that wish to participate in a fall league or tournament may do so if all player payments are up to date.


At the conclusion of the season, parents may request a list of all expenditures.  Parents are encouraged to contact a board member throughout the season with any questions about money spent or to request to see a copy of the bank statements.  

Player Refund Policy:

No refunds will be given after payments are received on the payment due date. In the event of injuries or other unforeseen circumstances, requests for refunds will be reviewed by the Association Board at the end of the season.
