We have a number of positions opening up after this season, as this is the last year of slow pitch for many of our long standing committee members. If you'd like to be part of the ongoing mission to grow and improve our development/recreation league, we'd love to hear from you and get you introduced to the current board.
We try to keep it fun and not too much work for any of our members. With Slow Pitch being a relatively short season, the time commitment is manageable!
Visit the Committee Positions page for an overview of the committee positions.
Contact Theresa Strand at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, or join us at our next board meeting. Our next meeting is June 4 8:30pm at the Community Activity Center Grand Room 1 (note: meetings don't usually start this late, but full schedules this month!).
Should my daughter play slow pitch or fast pitch? What equipment is needed? Where are practices? Or any other questions you have, please email us at email@example.com.
Our program has leagues for children as young as 5 years old!
It's easy to be taken in by our own competitiveness and forget our manners when watching our children participate in games and practices. Many of the game officials and all of the coaches you will come in contact with are volunteers. Others are teenagers trying to learn how to officiate at a very basic level and earn a little money while doing so.
They are going to make decisions you don't agree with. They may even make some calls that are wrong. If you feel you must criticize someone, please do it privately in a calm manner.
If we all remember that Coaches coach, Players play and Parents cheer, everyone's experience with youth sports will be a lot more fun.
