8u Softball Skills Nt

Thank you for your patience while we worked around conflicting schedules and breaks!

8u Softball Skills Night
Monday, March 16 at 6pm

Brawley Middle School ballfield
132 Swift Arrow Dr, Mooresville
(field is adjacent to Brawley School Rd, but enter from behind the school)

All 7 and 8 year old girls are expected to attend, in order to help the coaches create evenly balanced teams. 

Please arrive early to check your daughter in, where she'll receive a number. Your child needs to bring a glove, at minimum. They are also welcome to bring their own bats & helmets (optional).  If your daughter cannot attend, she will be randomly placed on a team. 
** 10u and 13u players need not attend Skills Day; they’ll be contacted separately.

COACHES: if you registered as a volunteer, please plan to help and report to Softball Director Nancy Bessler when you arrive.

Why do we hold Skills Day?
Skills day is a fun day at the ballpark, as players run through baseball drills. Each child is given a rating during drills, and coaches use these to divide players evenly during the draft. Registration special requests will be reviewed, but please understand, player ratings and the draft process are what determine team placement. Not all requests can be granted; it’s just not mathematically possible! SIAA’s goal is to have well-balanced teams; ideally, each team will have a 50/50 win/loss record.  Teams will be drafted by coaches after Skills, and your assigned Coach will contact you after that. 

Practices 
Teams will practice 2 times a week at first. Coaches will choose their own practice spots from available time slots and locations. Once games begin, practices will be scheduled as available and typically not be more than once a week. Practice location options include Stumpy Creek Park, Brawley Middle, Lake Norman Elementary & Mount Mourne School (WHE is under construction).

Games
Games will begin the last week of March or first of April, and will be played on weeknights.

Sponsors

Every team needs a sponsor; help us find them by asking businesses you support to support youth sports in Iredell County. Quite often, companies have money set aside for charitable contributions, and simply need to be asked.

See you on the ballfield!
