- Before practices and games, parents are required to escort their daughter all the way to the field. Do not drop off in the parking lot, or at the bottom of the stairs. Personally hand off to your daughter's coach.
- Same thing at the end of practice. Coaches must ensure that each girl is with their parent/guardian.
- A female chaperone must be present at all practices and games. Players may only go to the restroom when escorted by this female chaperone, the player’s own parent, or a team member’s female parent.
All parents and coaches should review the one-page 2017 Safety Guidelines and Policies. This document contains important information we must all follow in order to keep our girls safe. Our Facebook page has a video describing a recent incident in San Diego involving youth sports.
Also see this U-T San Diego article and this NPR story about the benefits of wearing a fielder's mask in girls softball (although there is no accepted standard or certification like with batting helmets, North Shore believes that fielder's masks promote player safety). In Kentucky, it's even being considered as a state law. Same now in Iowa and Idaho. It's only a matter of time before they are required everywhere. Everyone should get a mask and use it. In North Shore, it's currently required for all pitchers, and in 10U and up, it's required for all girls playing 1B and 3B.
A number of North Shore players receive professional private lessons, either once in a while or on a regular basis. In this space, you'll find a few that were recommended by other North Shore families. If you have one to add to the list, email email@example.com.
Jenny Schafran is also offering a summer camp (download flyer).
If you would like more information, feel free to reach out to coaches or board members.
