Fall Ball is really the best time for the girls to learn and practice those skills. It is more about learning. Lets all remember that we are here for the girls. So THEY have a great experience and learn to play softball!

 

 

Dear Spring Hill Dixie Families,

 

My name is Jeff Shumate.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Director for Spring Hill Dixie Girls Softball. 

 

First, however, I would like to thank our outgoing Director, Dianne McClellan, for her many years of service to our league.  I have known Dianne since I first moved to this area and I know that she has worked tirelessly over the past few years to ensure our daughters have a fun, safe, and memorable experience playing softball.  Dianne has devoted much of her life to the league and we all owe her a debt of gratitude for all she has done for our girls and we wish her well in the next chapter.  She will be missed.

 

I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard, after 27 years of service, in 2014.  As a Command Master Chief, I was responsible for the training, professional development, and mission readiness of over 300 Coast Guard men and women in an area of responsibility encompassing 55,000 square miles.  While I was in the service I earned a Master of Arts in Education with a specialization in Mathematics instruction.  I now teach middle school math at Winding Waters K-8 and I love it!  It is the most challenging and rewarding job I have ever had.  I have been involved in youth sports for the past 25 years and I have coached baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and softball teams.  My daughter has been playing in the league for the past three years and has another five to go.

 

We have a great group of people on our executive board and we are all on the same page moving forward, putting the interests of our players first - always.  If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know.  We are always looking for help in various areas including coaching, concessions, fundraising, etc.

 

My email address is jeffshumate@usa.com and my phone number is 352.345.5953.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you have.  I look forward to meeting those of you whom I haven’t met yet and working together to make your daughter’s experience a positive one.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jeff Shumate

Code of Conduct, Parents & Coaches

 

Spring Hill Dixie Softball PARENT & COACH CODE OF CONDUCT

Attention: Parents and Coaches

For many years now, Spring Hill Dixie Softball has successfully provided the youth of our area with recreational softball programs that 

emphasize sportsmanlike competition.  We have encouraged family participation for all involved.

As a parent/coach, you are being asked to encourage sportsmanlike conduct and competition. Most children learn by example, therefore, 

you must be even more aware of the importance of setting a good example. The committee members realize that the peer pressures facing our 

young people today is of great magnitude. Because of these pressures, and the desire to give our children an opportunity to experience the 

joy of competition as a winner and loser, we have adopted the following Code of Conduct to be adhered to by each of you.

· I will provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child

· I will respect the managers/coaches, other players and officials at all times and I will ask my child to do the same.

· By demonstrating positive support, I will encourage good sportsmanship toward coaches, players and officials at all times.

· I will support coaches and encourage my child to follow the directions of his/her coach(s).

· I will encourage my child to attend practices and games

· I understand that these games are for my child, not me. Therefore, I will put my child’s well being ahead of my personal desire to win.

· I will respect the officials of the game and rulings they make. I will not verbally abuse or question any official about rulings he/she has made. 

 I will speak in a positive manner about the game officiating, both during and after the game. I will willingly give my name to an official if asked.

· I will follow the park rules and ensure that my child follows them also. I understand that these rules are enforced for safety reasons.

We hope that by developing the CODE OF CONDUCT, you will understand what Spring Hill Dixie Softball expects from you as a parent. 

Spring Hill Dixie Softball is dedicated to offering the young people of the area a place where they can participate in good, clean fun. 

We want Spring Hill Dixie Softball to be a place where they can be themselves and grow mentally and physically without the pressure of 

being more than they are able to be, yet better themselves.
