I hope all is well with you and your family. I wanted to update you on the happenings with the summer baseball program.
- Schedule: I sent a schedule to the boys and they were supposed to share that with you. I am trying to instill accountability and responsibility. If they have not shared the schedule, here is what I am thinking.
July 4th ages 17/18,16 and 15
July 8-12 ages 18,16 and 15
July 14-17 ages 16 and 15
July 16-19 ages 17/18
July 30-Aug 2 ages 18,16,15
Aug 6-9 ages 18,16 and 15
More dates will be available in August.
We are looking at the possibilities of fielding 2 to 3 teams. The coaches are working on those numbers. The dates above are also pending the Boulder County Health Department. The St. Vrain Valley School District follows Boulder County Health Department regulation regarding COVID 19. We are waiting on a request from Boulder County to allow us to play these games. We cannot go out and play in areas that have less restricted guidelines according to St. Vrain Valley who is following Boulder County regulations. If you are confused, so are we and we are just following the rules that are placed in front of us. Controlling the controllable. The coaches plan going forward with the high number of kids participating is to play scrimmages against each other as well as create game-like situations at practice. This way we can control the game situation and talk about the results good or bad. We are really trying to mix things up and keep the kids challenged. Our major goal right now is to get the kids in shape and to get our pitchers ready so that we can compete against each other or other teams when allowed.
- Cost: Right now nothing. Once we get clearance to play, I will go through how many tournaments we can get in and I will divide according to kids and teams. If we are able to play starting on July 4th , I have estimated a cost of $230.00 per player. This covers tournaments and baseballs. This is just an FYI.
- Incoming Freshman: Right now, we have 16 Freshman who do not have a place to play or practice. We are having a practice for that group on Friday the 26th. We are also having a practice on Monday the 29th . The practice on the 29th we would like to see all the 16 kids plus the other Freshman who are playing on club teams to come out and participate. The plan is to start incorporating the Freshman into regular practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting next week. We will give more instruction regarding those dates at their practices. The above tournament schedule applies to the incoming Freshmen as well.
- Newsletter: My goal is to create a weekly newsletter and give weekly updates on the new information as I receive it.
As always, if you have a question, please email me.
