You should have all received a reminder about tomorrow's practice -- it'll be good to finally get started! Our practice slot is every Sunday from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at Van Voorst field (its located next to Jefferson grade school on Crescent Ave.).
Our first game is on Wed. July 8th, so we only have two practices before then.
You each should have also received a memo from the League about procedures for the conduct of games. Below is the link in case you haven't read it yet:
Note that the memo states that each player are to have their own mit, helmet, and bat. Obviously, each player should have her own mask as well. If you have any questions about what type or size of bat to get, below is a link to a helpful guide:
I'll go over these procedures with the girls tomorrow, as well as some general rules. Here are a few that I wanted to pass along now:
1. If your daughter is unable to make a game for any reason during, please let me know with as much notice as possible. We have a full roster and I spend a fair amount of time before each game preparing the line-up and batting order. Its hard to re-do the line-up at the game. I certainly understand that last minute cancellations will happen too -- but do your best to let me know as soon as possible.
2. The girls should wear a mask at all times during practice and games (if you don't have a mask by tomorrow, don't worry about it for now). The game is much faster at this level and its a safety issue. Travel teams and Middle School and High School teams all require masks as well.
3. The girls should wear their full uniform, softball pants included, for games. Pants are also recommend for practices as well, but not mandatory. But, we will be practicng sliding during practices.
