IMPORTANT 2019 FALL BALL ANNOUNCEMENT

2019 Fall Baseball Program Update:

After reviewing the number of kids registered to play thus far at our recent board meeting on Tuesday the 27th, the GCLL Board of Directors has decided to restructure our Fall Baseball Program for 2019.

In an effort to keep our Parents informed, the GCLL Board wants to take this opportunity to share the (2) main reasons why we are restructuring our upcoming 2019 Fall Ball Program.

1.) GCLL wants to provide the best experience to all our kids. After hearing more than a few coaches from different program levels in the 2019 spring season, it has been advised that in many cases some basic player skills were needing to be re-trained. The board has decided a Fall Training Season would be more beneficial to the league as a whole rather than a shortened game season. 

Some of the benefits we are looking to achieve in the Fall Season would be:

Evaluation Time - Coaches will have over a month of time working with our kids to see their potentials and needs for improvement. With this time to observe, we can then spread the level of talent out evenly throughout the teams in the Spring so that no teams are "stacked."

Enhanced Practices - With a more training type of season, we will be able to run more comprehensive practices consisting of a skills focus session where the ratio of kids to coaches is low enough to really improve our player's basic skill sets in a shorter amount of time. 

2.) In addition to the low number of participants registered, the GCLL Board and available Head Coaches are in short supply. To be blunt, the Board cannot and will not any longer spend the extra effort to run a full Fall Season with the low amount of parental Involvement and volunteering needed to run effectively. 

If you want to help, please see the positions below that we need filled by people who are driven to succeed and fully ready to own their position if taken. 

- Vice President
- Information Officer
- Player Agent
- Fundraising Coordinator
- Concessions Director
- Safety Manager
- Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches

Registration will at MIDNIGHT on August 31. 

Your child's coach will be calling you within the next week or two to advise of practice schedules.
All participants will still receive hats and shirts

Tee-Ball age division will receive trophies while all other age divisions will receive some type of GCLL gear, but not trophies. 

A Note & Reminder from the President
The youth of this league, their skills, and their enjoyment in the game will always be governed by the amount of effort put forth by the parents. 

PLEASE step up and make a difference.
