Goals For Our Baseball League:
NOTE: There are no bathrooms at the fields, so please be prepared for this slight inconvenience.
- Good sportsmanship, fun - healthy competition, self-esteem builder, encouraging one another, team work, fair play, and learning to play softball.
- Pray before & after each game (or designate someone)
- COMMUNICATION WITH OPPOSING COACHES:
- The coaches set the ground rules with the umpire present so everyone is in agreement before play begins.
- At the beginning of the league, Children will be given opportunity to play different positions, team positions may be set by the 3rd game.
- On the first game night, the “Coaches Cards” will be distributed so that kids can get in touch with the team coach.
- At the end of the game, the kids shake hands with the opposing team, usually at home plate.
- Be patient: some parents may have to come from different fields.
- The UMPIRE should be treated with respect. Be sure to teach this to your team.
RAINOUT - With the unpredictable weather in Abbotsford, we never know what’s going to happen. We will not make a cancellation until 4:00 pm, even if it’s been raining during the day. After 4:00 PM, you can call Sevenoaks Alliance Church 604-853-0757, or view updates on our Facebook page for possible cancellation information.
- Due to our contract with Parks, Recreation and Culture, there is “No Smoking or Alcohol” allowed on school grounds.
- Be positive in your actions. The kids are watching you. Show your support to the coaches and encourage all the kids. We are here to have fun.
- This League cannot happen without your help. Through being a volunteer coach, assistant coach, first aid attendant (if you’ve have training), scorekeeper (for the Juniors), or an umpire you have the opportunity to touch the life of a child. Please consider being a volunteer and making a comment on the registration form.
