All parents will be asked to volunteer throughout the season. Parents can sign up to be a coach, assistant coach, or manager. We are a 100% Volunteer organization so depend on parents to volunteer in various ways.
If you will not be in one of those positions, parents can volunteer to score keep, umpire, help set up the diamonds for play and do base coaching.
Games begin at 6:30 pm. Games are 90 minutes in length.
Practices will begin after teams are formed. Practice times are set by the coaches. Generally games begin the last week of May and finish early August.
What is Learn to Play?
The emphasis is on fun, action, and a positive atmosphere with a gradual introduction to non-stressful competition. Coach pitch (t-stand available if needed), catcher's position, and safebase at first are introduced for this division. An 11" IncrediBall is used. This is a soft core training softball. In each session parent/adults are needed to run the activities/drills. Each session consists of a practice followed by a game. Games typically take place at Eastview Park.
