Are you willing to help?

If you are reading this I am asking you to help.  Speaking as the Director and for the Board, we feel we have the groundwork for a great Association.  We are energetic and excited about the future of the Saint Francis Fastpitch Association.  We all have at least a year under our belt and, even though we made some mistakes, we are working on many good things.  We have streamlined the tryout procedure, built a storage shed by the 9th grade field, are in the process of building a batting cage, have revamped the scheduling process, and are working with the umpire organization to alleviate the "missing ump" problem.  

We have more work to do and cannot do this with out you!!!  Below is a list of possible positions (already filled); which one is for you?  Do you see a need that is not filled?

One goal as a board is to create a organization with smaller responsibilities to fit in with your busy lifestyle.  For example, picture coordinator's work with the photographer and the teams to coordinate pictures at the start of the season.   

Second goal is to keep the meetings (12 per year) to one hour.

Additional training resources.

Here are some camps offered through St. Kate's that are great learning opportunities and a great value. I will be taking Molly and would love to fill up our van with Saints. You can do one or the other or both. Let me know if you have any questions.

AGE DETERMINING DATES

Not sure which age group your daughter belongs: 

Fastpitch Softball uses December 31 as the determining date.  To ease the confusion during registration, ask yourself, how old will my child be on January 1st, 2018?  And that is the age group they are eligible to play for the 2018 season.


Whatever the age of your daughter, we can work with you to find the correct team and age group.  Our goal is for each girl to have a fun and exciting season, while learning teamwork and developing confidence both on and off the field. Players may never play in an age level below where they are supposed to be.  Girls may play at a higher level if the need arises and if the player has expressed interest in moving to a higher age group.
