Good evening 3rd/4th grade Softball Parents. My name is Joel Staley and I will be the head coach for this years' spring team. There are five teams this year and our team consists of 10 girls. The purpose of the email is to provide general information about the league along with some specific information pertaining to our team. Below are some general league dates along with some upcoming fundraiser information. More will come in future communications.
- Evaluations - Complete
- Practice Starts – Week of March 29th
- Uniform Pickup – May 5th
- Picture Day – May 12th
- Opening Day – May 15th
This year’s fundraiser will be selling Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s products. More information will be coming over the next few weeks, but I wanted to give you a heads up if you wanted to get a head start. Below is a link where anyone can place orders that get credited to our program, please share with family and friends! As we’ve always done, prizes will be awarded to the top individual and team sellers.
Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm
Saturdays 8:30am - 10am (optional)
Field 8 located at Sycamore Park District 435 S. Airport Road
Practices will officially start on 4/6. Saturday practices are mainly for weekday weather cancellations; however, they will be scheduled as optional third practice for anyone who wants the additional time on the field. All practices will occur on Field 8 at the park district. Once the season begins, I will alter the schedule based on the teams needs.
I will try to go the extra mile and over communicate to make sure everyone is on the same page. I will setup up a group text and will use that as my primary communication tool. I will also utilize email from time-to-time and will get our schedule on the website as soon as possible for your viewing pleasure. Jeff Anderson will also be assisting me this year and I will gladly take any parent help during the season. Regardless of your coaching experience or fundamental understanding of softball, any assistance that you are willing to provide can speed up the learning curve and prepare the girls for the upcoming season. Feel free to get with me at an upcoming practice.
Jeff and I look forward to working with the girls. Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of the game, inspire confidence in a competitive enviroment and most importantly........have fun. Feel free to reach out to me if needed.
