St Paul North Area/Rookies Fastpitch

Welcome to the St Paul North Area/Rookies Fastpitch website. The North Area Fastpitch and St Paul Rookies organizations merged during the fall of 2015, host teams from 10U through 18U, and include players from St Paul and the surrounding areas. Both organizations have been serving girls in these areas for many years (25+), and as one we will be able to continue doing so for many more.

Visit our About Us page for more information and to learn how you can get involved.
