PRACTICE AND GAME OBLIGATIONS? We will often get questions as to how often teams practice and the frequency of games. This can vary between age group and coach, but it typically looks like this. Practices typically start around April 1st and will continue throughout the entire season, which is to around the third week in June. Teeball teams will practice once or twice a week. 8U, 10U and 12U will practice twice a week. Midget "Travel" teams can practice four times per week. Games will start around May 1st and will usually consist of two games per week, per team. Most teams will continue to try to practice once or twice a week while games are going on.
CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS: We are always in need of more corporate sponsors. If your company would be interested in being a sponsor for one of our teams, please view our sponsorship forms.
VACATION PLANNING? Every year we have parents ask us when they should plan their vacations, to ensure not missing any baseball. This year we anticipate our season and playoffs to be concluded by June 30th.
COACHES: I am excited to tell you that Elite Baseball is offering a "team rate" for coaches who are looking to continue to have them work with your kids. For those of you who were not able to attend the clinics we held, I can tell you the parents and coaches that were able to attend thought they did a great job. This current opportunity is for you to have them come to your team's weeknight practices and work specifically with your team.
The cost they are currently giving us is $120 for a two-hour practice. I can tell you, this is about what they would get for one kid for two hours, so this is an incredible discount that I would take advantage of if you can.
ELCO Youth Baseball will not be covering any of this expense, as we did not cover any of the costs for the clinic. If you want to ask each player to contribute $10, or you want to defer the cost over your coaching staff, is your preference entirely. I trust that you will come up with something that works for your team.
DO YOU FACEBOOK?: If so, we'd love to have you "Like Us" as it is a tool we use to give periodic updates throughout the year. Click here to visit our page.
HATS FOR SALE: We have had some interest from parents wanting to buy team hats. Either the blue and gold for the travel team or the black and white of the recreational division. We have some extras for sale. We will have a variety of velcro and flexfit options. Please call Michelle at 717.304.5420 for more information.
