2015 LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Parents,

Registration for the Spring 2015 Litchfield Baseball program is open! Please find the link to the registration site at: www.LITCHFIELDBASEBALL.com.

I am extremely excited to announce that the Litchfield Baseball Association has teamed up with the Rivier University Baseball Team to run PRESEASON CLINICS for coaches & players this year. This will be an awesome experience for the LBA players who will be taught the FUNdamentals of baseball (with an emphasis on FUN) by the Rivier Staff and their Student-Athletes.

PLEASE SAVE THE DATES:

COACHES CLINIC: SUNDAY FEBRUARY 8th @ TALENT HALL START TIME = 4 PM

The Coaches Clinic is open to ANY parent that wants to learn how to run an effective practice. This clinic is MANDATORY for anyone planning on being a COACH or ASSISTANT COACH this season. We will introduce various drills and stations that will allow you to keep the players moving while reinforcing fundamental skills and mechanics.

PLAYERS CLINICS: THREE CONSECUTIVE SUNDAYS: FEB. 15th / FEB. 22nd / MARCH 1st

The Players Clinics will be held on 3 consecutive Sunday’s and will simulate a high-energy practice that include stations/drills that are specific to the age group. All Player Clinics will be held at the Rivier University Muldoon Center in Nashua. On each Sunday, the following four clinics will be held.:

  • 3 PM – 4 PM / TBALL
  • 4 PM – 5 PM / ROOKIE
  • 5 PM – 6 PM / MAJORS & MINORS
  • 6 PM – 7 PM / PITCHERS & CATCHERS ONLY

Players MUST be registered with the LBA for the 2015 season in order to attend the clinics. Registration is OPEN!

I welcome your input and ask that you do not hesitate in reaching out to me directly if you have a question, suggestion, concern, compliment, or the desire to give back to your community. We do not require fundraising from our families and the fees for our program are the same or lower than other local baseball programs. We are made up entirely of volunteers and need your help to create an enjoyable experience for your children. We expect every family to donate their time to make the season run smoothly.
