GLL Rookie, TBall, and Farm Saturday Clinics
New this year, we are hosting Saturday Skills Clinics for players in the Rookie, TBall, and Farm Divisions. If you've been contacted by your Manager, you may already be aware, but these will be fantastic clinics that are led by professional coaches aided by the volunteer managers and coaches assigned to each team.
Teams will attend 60 minute long practice slots selected by their managers (a few teams at a time) at Max Baer #2 field located at the southwest end of the park off Murdell Lane.
*Players are expected to arrive on time and ready for practice: appropriate sports attire, gloves, bats, helmets, athletic supporters and cups for males, hats, cleats, etc. When you arrive, lead your player to the field and they will then be directed into one of the dugouts to drop their gear/ veteran parents have all their kid's gear marked ;)
** Managers/ Coaches are to bring their badges (and gloves if they want), no other gear required. (Buckets of balls, nets, cones, etc will all be there already along with a Head Coach to organize and run games and drills.)
Coaches John McGough and or Jeremy Branco will be present at all dates to head these clinics. Parents, do not be shy about getting your background checks done and badging up to participate in these clinics with your players. They will be fast paced and fun activities that you can take with you for years to come whether it is in official practices or in the backyard with your family.
To get background checked and cleared, email a copy of your completed concussion training (which can be done here: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html in just a few minutes) to Chris Green firstname.lastname@example.org and then complete the JDP background that he will send you a link and he will then provide you clearance with a badge. It doesn't take long.
