REGISTRATION-- There have been many changes, including lower fees for 10u and 12u League and a later season start. Please be sure to read all of the descriptions for the program you are registering. To register go to gffastpitch.org.
Payment of fees--Fees can be paid on Tuesday, April 1, from 6:00 to 7:30 at Gambucci Arena(next to Purpur Arena), or Thursday, April 3, 10, and 24, at Gambucci from 7 to 8:30 during the pre-season practices. Any payments after May 1 will increase by $20 per player.
Indoor pre-season practices-- We have reserved the Gambucci Arena Facility for pre-season activities for those that would like to get a jump start on the season. These practices are on Thursday, April 3, 10, and 24 from 7 to 8:30PM. PARENTS ARE REQUIRED TO STAY AT THE FACILITY WHILE YOUR DAUGHTER IS IN ATTENDANCE. We encourage you to be involved as well. Players can stay as long as they wish during the open practice and work on any skills they wish (hitting, throwing, fielding, etc). More preseason practices will be posted on the calendar for May as soon as we know how many volunteers will be available. Selection of Express teams will also take place in late May/early June, depending upon coach availability.
COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED--This program does not run if we do not have people volunteer to coach, work tournaments, organize travel, and serve on the board. Please contact me ASAP if you would like to be a part of it in any capacity.
PARK BOARD--We recommend that all girls in 10u and 12u also play in the Park Board afternoon program as well. Registration and information is at gfparks.org.
MY LAST SUMMER--This will be my last season with the fastpitch program. It has been a great time for me and my family to have gotten to know all of you and I look forward to watching this program grow. However, it does need great people to step up and get involved. I, too, sat on my lawn chair one summer and thought what I would do if I was involved. I decided to do just that and, 9 years later, have never regretted it. Please let me know if you would be willing and able to assist in leading this program! The pay stinks ($0), but the gratification, like watching the 12u celebrate the State Championship last year, is plentiful.
Pass this along to anyone that you think would be interested.
