This update applies to all divisions.
T-Ball/Peanuts and Farm B Baseball
While we have had tryouts, and formed teams for the upper divisions, we are still accepting late registrations for T-Ball/peanuts and Farm B, which is for our newer players. So, please register today if you have not…and if you know your kids’ friends have not, let them know to get in now before registration closes again.
Parents, for both T-ball/Peanuts and Farm B; we need moms and dads to help manage/coach these teams. Don’t worry if you have not done it before, we will help train you to be all you can be just like the marines!
Without coaches we will have to put teams together and then force parents to step up and coach or the team can’t practice or play. Now is the time to step up to an exciting chance to guide your and other kids in this great sport.
So please, sign up to manage/coach when your register. If you have already registered but now would like to put your hat in the ring to manage/coach please email Aaron Heath for T-ball @ firstname.lastname@example.org or Stephanie Stierwalt for Farm B @ email@example.com Make this year great!
