I wanted to pass along some information for the U12 softball team that the KRA is having this year. This is our first time with a Structured under 12 co-Ed softball team, and we are very excited to be taking on this endeavour!
Over the past few years, our very small team of volunteers have been looking at ways to better serve the needs of summer sports in our community. One opportunity is to provide competitive sports programs where kids can develop their skills and get involved with playing teams from other areas.
So, what does this mean for your kids, this year?
Jonathan Currie and Rick Jenkins will be coaching kids from ages 9-12 (must be 9 before the end of 2019) who are looking for a more in depth experience. They are looking for kids who can and want to commit to a ball team. This team will provide kids the ability to learn about each position, and grow their skill levels. The team will have a spring training program that starts on Sunday May 5th. The indoor practices will be on Sundays at 3pm and Thursdays at 6pm at the Keswick Ridge school and will run until we get out on the fields.
Each practice is 1 hour, and parents are encouraged to drop their kids off and pick them up when the practice is finished.
We are in the process of reaching out to other organizations to set up games for the summer. Our hope is to provide a minimum of 10 games for the kids. Games will either be scheduled on practice times or Friday nights, as much as possible. We will avoid scheduling games on long weekends as we know a lot of parents plan vacations these weekends.
Your child will need ball pants (Grey preferred), and they will likely need a jock or jill. All other equipment, team shirts, hats, etc. Will be provided by the team.
We will set up a parents meeting in June to go over more items that parents may be curious about.
If you are interested in learning more, please feel free to contact the KRA, or myself (Jaclyn Currie).
If you are interested in volunteering to help with managing the team, assisting with equipment, or canteen hours, please also let us know!
