We have implemented a new **Alert** system for MFSA. Once our members sign-up for a free MyLeaguelineup account, they can then provide a verifiable phone and email address, to receive text messages and emails from this system. It will be used for rain-out/field conditions, and coach/league information. The first step is to look under the MFSA Menu, just below the 'Visitor Counter' is another box containing the 'MyLeaguelineup' sign-up. Follow the instructions and you will then be able to receive these Alerts.
RULE Change - Effective Immediately
April 4, 2011
Effective today all age groups will play their alloted time. 6U will play 1 hr, and 8U and up will play 70 mins, and finish the inning. If time expires and either team is ahead by 7 or more runs the game will end at that time. We need the umpires and coaches to work together to insure every player has had at least one at bat. We will allow those that have not batted, an opportunity to do so, even if we exceed the three outs per inning. MFSA is committed to giving all players a chance to play and we will do whatever it takes to accomplish this goal.
Please find a letter below from Cliff addressing the seriousness of the drought as it relates to our athletic facilities.
Athletic Association Presidents,
With Stage 4 Water Restrictions to take effect in April, I would like for each of you to consider the impacts of your seasons and activities on the conditions of City athletic facilities. Under Stage 4, we will most likely be limited to once a week watering on game fields only. Forecasts also predict lower than normal rainfall levels throughout 2012. With these issues in mind, I am requesting that you start your seasons as close to April as possible to protect the dormant turf grass. The more time the grass has to establish root systems, the better a chance it will survive through the summer months. If an abbreviated season is possible, we would encourage you to do that this year. I also ask that you not hold any preseason practices or orientations. As for tournaments, I understand the impact these have on your associations and all I ask is that you weigh the consequences of additional play on fields.
The steps we take now should impact the conditions of fields in the fall and the spring. Should we experience high temperatures similar to this past summer, we will commit resources and staff time to fill cracks on a routine basis on game fields only. You will need to advise your teams to be mindful of the conditions of their practice areas throughout the year. As part of Stage 4 restrictions, we will not irrigate any park or practice facility, nor will we there be any sod replacement at any facility.
The issues faced by North Texas Municipal Water District and the City's that receive their water from the district are as serious as they have ever been. As we learn more about the restrictions in place and the impacts that they have on your associations, we will communicate to your players, coaches and parents through each of you. We will include this issue on the agenda for the Athletic Association Meeting on January 19th. If you should have any questions prior to this date, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Director, Mesquite Parks & Recreation
Athletics & Aquatics Superintendent
