BNLL Cold Weather Policy for Games



The official cold weather policy adopted by the Boone National Little League Board of Directors on 03/22/2014:

If the ambient temperature at the scheduled start of the game is below 40 degrees, or we have a wind chill below 30 degrees, that game will be postponed or canceled. This policy has been put in place for the safety of the players and so that there is consistency on whether or not a game starts on any given day at the beginning of the season.  As with any postponement or cancellation, notification of a change in the schedule will be made via the BNLL website (www.boonell.com), the BNLL facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BooneNationalLittleLeague), and through the RainedOut text notification service.

Practice cancellation will be the decision of the coaches in charge of the team althought the cold weather policy will be a guideline for them to use for their practices as well. Notifications of practice changes will come directly from the coaches themeselves.

The Boone National Little League Board of Directors would like to thank the coaches, parents and umpires for their commitment to good sportsmanship this year at the ballpark. It is because of your concerted efforts to make a positive change that we are able to bring you this list.

IMPORTANT PRACTICE INFORMATION FOR COACHES - PLEASE READ



There are several practice locations available in our community. Some are first come-first serve and others are owned and/or maintained by BNLL and are therefore reserved. You may reserve a practice location by recording your team name in our practice field reservation book in the appropriate date and time slot. The book will be located at West Side Casey’s General Store prior to Opening Day and then moved to our headquarters building. DO NOT telephone Casey’s and ask their employees to write your name in the book or look up who has what field and when. Casey’s is doing us a favor by allowing us to keep our book in their store; DON’T SPOIL A GOOD THING!

Reserved Locations
Casey’s – behind West Side Casey’s – 4 backstops
B&SVRR – 10th & Monona – 1 backstop but room for two teams
Batting Cage A – BNLL Complex – with South Morrow skinned infield
Batting Cage B – BNLL Complex – with North Morrow grass infield
Batting Cage C – BNLL Complex – with Tee Ball field (pre-season) & NW Casey’s field (during season)
BHS Batting Cage – BNLL Complex – with adjacent skinned infield (pre BHS season)

First Come-First Serve Locations
Playground at any public school
Boone City Parks – Slow-pitch softball teams have priority on fields in McHose Park
City of Boone – under the water tower at 1st & Clinton
Sharing practice sights is your responsibility. Consider this rule of thumb: younger teams practice early and older teams practice later. The batting cage and scrimmages are recognized as good forms of practice and their use is encouraged. Practices and/or scrimmages shall not be conducted with other youth baseball/softball program teams.

Other Private Property
You must obtain permission before practicing on private property.

Batting Cage Rules
The batting cage rules are as follows:
1. Only adults may run the pitching machine.
2. Only two ball players allowed in the fenced in area at a time.
3. All ballplayers must have a helmet on at all times when in the fenced area.
4. Each team is only allowed to sign-up one time per week if signing up prior to that week. You may sign up for as many as three per week if you sign up during that current week.

Practice Restrictions
You MAY NOT practice:
before 4:30 PM on days when school is in session
before 9AM on days when school is not in session
on Sundays, Memorial Day, during our Candy Sale, or days on which you have a game
More than three 1½-hr practices per calendar week OR two 2-hr practices per calendar week prior to Opening Day.
More than two 1½-hr practices per calendar week OR one 2-hr practice per calendar week after Opening Day.
You MUST practice at least:
Two 1½-hr practices per calendar week OR one 2-hr practice per calendar week prior to Opening Day

PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES

Use, possession or being under the influence of alcoholic beverages and/or controlled substances is strictly forbidden, violators will be asked to leave the ballpark immediately, and board members shall not hesitate to call the police.
Use of tobacco products, abusive language and/or abusive behavior by Managers, assistants, or volunteers at practices, games, or any other activity associated with Little League is strictly prohibited.
Gifts shall not be given to individual ballplayers for making good plays, hits or having good games. If you have questions concerning rewards, obtain prior approval from the Board of Directors.



WORKDAY INFORMATION



The Little League program survives on the assistance we receive from volunteers. Through out the season each team will have an assigned workday. You will receive your scheduled workday date at the draft. Each team must have at least six adults present for their workday and complete their assigned tasks. Failure to abide by this rule will result in your next scheduled game being forfeited and your games will continue to be forfeited until your scheduled tasks are completed. There will be at least two board members present during each workday. Please check in with them when you arrive. You MUST ensure that the board member’s signature appears on your workday sheet before you leave the park.

Each parent should plan on working approximately 2 hours during workday performing all different types of tasks. The Boone Little League Board has a limited number of VOLUNTEERS and need your help maintaining and keeping up the facility. If you have special skills or trades that could assist us with work done around the park, please let a board member know and we may be able to arrange a time for you to come outside of your time to assist us on other projects.

As there are limited rakes, brooms, tools, etc. at the Little League complex, please plan on bringing anything you may need to accomplish the work needed. This includes: Pliars, Clips, Leaf Blowers, Shovels, Rakes, Brooms, Lawn Sheers, etc.

LITHIA MOTORS DONATES $1000 TOWARDS STORM DAMAGE



Boone National Little League would like to thank Lithia Motors (Honda & Nissan Dealers) of Ames for their generous donation of $1000 to offset the insurance deductible cost which was greatly needed after a late winter storm damaged a significant amount of fencing and netting around the T-Shirt/Minor Baseball/Minor Softball Fields. We truly appreciate Jeff Searcy and his entire team over there at Lithia Motors and their support of the Boone National Little League and the over 700 children who participate in this league!
