Ipswich Little League: Welcome

MAY 4th - Opening Day Ceremonies Schedule

* 10:30 - Meet in the rear parking area at The High School, near the tennis courts. Be prepared to Park at the HS and walk to the field, it's not so far and there is virtually no parking at the field.

* 11:00 - Parade starts. We will march to Bialek Park via Linebrook Rd. During the Parade kids will be grouped by division and team.

* 11:30 - (approx) we arrive at Bialek Park

* 11:30 - 12:30 ish - Teams go through stations. We will have age-appropriate stations set up, throwing, running etc.. Coaches, and H.S. players will be helping to direct these stations but parents are very much welcome to join in the fun as well.

* 12:30 ish - 1:30 ish - Kids are free to enjoy the festivities with their families.

* 2:00 pm - AAA and Major League Games start, don't feel obligated to stay but it might be nice for your kids to see the older kids play...even for one inning.

* Kids wear uniforms. If you don't have one yet, your coach will provide the hat and shirt.

* Kids Bring Gloves, and bats, but parents PLEASE hold on to the bats until we get to the field.

* Parents we are asking you NOT to march with your kids. We ask that you go somewhere along the parade route and cheer as your kid walks by. The kids will appreciate a cheering crowd (of course you know your child best, but we believe that your child will be fine marching with his/her team).

* The Snack Shack will be open and their will be hot dogs, hamburgers, Pizza and other munchies.

* We still need some more volunteers, here are some the areas that we will need help with. Please let me know which is the best fit for you, or if you have any ideas on how else you could help. If you want to help but your time is limited, than just let us know, we can work it out.
