2019 Season – Update (posted 4.15.19)
TEAM ROSTERS….U6-U14 head coaches have received their team rosters. Coaches will make first contact with all of their players. If you have not received a contact from a coach by Thur evening, April 18th, please check your spam/junk folder first and then email Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org with the player’s name and division and she will put you in touch with your coach. U16 coaches will receive their rosters in very late May and will reach out to their players after that.
GAME SCHEDULES…U6-U14 schedules will be final and given out to coaches on April 27. Shortly after, we will link them on each division page of our website for parents to download. The U16 schedule will be linked on the U16 page in early June.
KNOW YOUR ROLE…Players will play, coaches will coach, umpires will umpire, and parents will parent. Jr Saltdogs has a “zero tolerance” policy for everyone involved in our program. We ask that every parent, coach, and player in our program read the flyer about this on our website (posted in box in top right corner and on the Coach Information page) as well as read the Code of Conduct page. Please help us to have a positive season!
TEAM SHIRTS…U6-U14 coaches will receive team shirts on April 27 and are asked to hand them out right away. Because all the shirts are customized with a sponsor logo and player number on the back, there are no extras. It takes about 5-7 business days for the printer to receive a shirt and print it so please have your child try on their shirt right away when he receives it so you know it fits. Re-ordered shirts are $20 and must be ordered through us. If one is needed, email Deb at email@example.com with the following information: player’s name, division, team name, the # on the back of the original shirt (the new shirt must have the same #), and the best phone number for the printer to reach you (parent) at when the shirt is ready for payment/pick up at the printer.
BAT CHECKS (U10-U14 only)…If you didn’t have your bat checked/stickered at registration and it doesn’t already have our orange “approved” sticker on it, we have set two more dates on:
- Sat, April 27 from 8:30am-11:30am at O Street Skills and Drills (there is no signage on the building but it’s at 25th & O Street on the south side of O – look for the JSL feather flag by the overhead door and walk down the ramp (please be quiet as meetings will be going on)
- Sun, April 28 from 4:30pm-6:00pm at FUNdamental Athletics Academy at 8400 Cody Drive, Suite K (14th & Yankee Hill area)
- Early May – we will also schedule a coule other dates in early May – please check back for final dates times/locations
After the dates above, bat checks will be very limited during the season. Please don’t count on them being done at the fields during game nights. Games will not be delayed for bat checks so if it’s important to your child that he use his own bat for his very first at bat, please be sure to have the bat check done at one of these pre-season bat dates. used in a game.
Just a reminder that bat checks are not needed for U6 and U8, and since high school bat rules apply for U16, we will check all U16 bats at a later time.
