 *New Pilot Program for SV Little League Fall Ball Clinics*

 The clinics will run on Wednesday nights from September 10 to November 5 from 6-8 pm on Herrera Field on Fort Huachuca for a total of 8 clinics. These clinics will run on the same dates, time, and location as Ponytail softball fall ball so it will allow parents with boys and girls to take advantage of this opportunity. The clinics will focus on teaching the fundamentals of baseball to kids ages 7-12.

The cost of the 8 clinics will be $20 collected during fall ball registration. The $20 will provide a t-shirt to each child and cover the cost of insurance. It will also allow us to know how many coaches are needed. 

 

This is a pilot program for SV Little League in hopes that we can improve baseball fundamentals and confidence of those kids sitting on the fence. Coach Jeff Whitworth will be running this program and is looking for coaches and parents to assist in Fall Ball clinics.  He is hoping to get enough coaches or parents to assist to keep the ratio of kids to coaches very low so the kids receive more one on one coaching. These clinics are also a perfect opportunity for parents who are interested in coaching or just being able to coach their kids better at home as well as a great way to learn from other SVLL Coaches.

LITTLE LEAGUE BANS COMPOSITE BARREL BATS!!!

Effective immediately, Little League International has banned the use of any Baseball Bat that has not received a waiver which is constructed with a composite barrel for all divisions of play.  For a list of Composite Bats that have received the waiver go to http://www.littleleague.org/learn/equipment/approvedcompbats.htm

*******************************************************************************************************

*ATTENTION ALL VOLUNTEERS*

To remain in compliance with Little League Int'l rules, Sierra Vista Little League is required to obtain new Volunteer Applications & perform background checks on ALL potential volunteers every year, regardless of previous service with SVLL.  If you are interested in volunteering, in any capacity, please complete and turn in your application as soon as possible.  Remember, our league cannot run without your support!

*******************************************************************************************************

*COACHES*

We must have your 2014 Volunteer application no later than February 3, 2014 in order for you to be considered for a position during the Spring 2014 season.  All applications must be fully completed and include the SSN & you will need to provide us with a photocopy of your valid photo I.D.  There will be no exceptions!

No swinging bats or warming up players is permitted outside of the field.  This is a safety rule that must be followed.  We don't want anyone getting hurt out there. :)

Our Umpires are all volunteers and we need MORE of them!  Please, take it easy on them.  They will make mistakes from time to time.  Please treat them with the courtesy and respect that they deserve and that you would expect if you were making the call (even if it's a bad one).  If you are interested in helping them out, please contact Robin Murray, Umpire in Chief @ 234-7160 or by E-Mail rmurray23@cox.net.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!  Encourage all of the kids and don't take things too seriously.  This should be a fun time for you and your family.

National Little League has developed an ad addressing yelling parents from the stands.  Could you imagine if the tables were turned?  Keep it positive out there! :)
