"LETTER FROM THE COMMISSIONER"

 

Dear Parents, Players, and Friends of the 21st Ward Junior League:

I am honored and thankful to serve as your league’s commissioner for the next two years. Also serving our league for the next two years is Nick Rosley- Deputy Commissioner, Deb Martelon- Treasurer, and Steve Gallagher- Secretary. I also want to thank all of the selfless volunteers who have contacted us about serving on the Advisory board as we will announce them prior to our first meeting in November.  

We as a league will celebrate our 58th year in 2015 and there are many new challenges in front of us. We have seen dwindling numbers in all organizations over the past years and in fact have even had the Ivy-Ridge Panthers fold as an organization this year. These challenges though bring us new opportunities to band together once again as a community.

We will be resolute in our core values staying committed to provide a positive learning environment through teaching and playing that emphasizes sportsmanship, develops teamwork and fosters a healthy competitive spirit. We will treat each player fairly and equally, regardless of playing ability by providing a safe positive learning experience for every player in the league.

As we and so many other families have discovered, the 21st ward experience is one that not only touches the kids who play the games, but also the many that coach and volunteer.  We at the 21st Ward are as much about family & friends as we are about baseball/softball. 

Finally, I would like to thank all of the businesses that support youth sports and the 21st ward JL. Registration dues cover only percentage of the costs to operate our league, while the rest of the funds come from concessions, events, and our generous sponsors. I encourage you to patronize the businesses that support our league.

Thank you for all of your commitment and support,

Lou Fresta

Commissioner

ABOUT THE 21st WARD JUNIOR LEAGUE

The 21st Ward Junior League is a non-profit organization
that serves the children of Northwest Philadelphia (the 21st Ward).
  We have no paid employees, and can provide sports activities to resident children only through volunteer efforts and participation. Fees are designed to cover the cost of the baseball and softball programs that we offer. The parents or guardians of each child participating in the League's programs are asked to provide 2 hours of time per season in field maintenance and trash pickup to enable us to keep costs low and to maintain our quality facilities that are enjoyed by all.
