A MESSAGE FROM THE CAA BOARD MEMBERS
Sports teach a player to be the best you can be for your team and for yourself. Sports demand a player's strength, courage and a willingness to do the job they are called to do.
Sports are not about being perfect. They're about working effectively together with others, good sportsmanship, giving your best, feeling good and having fun. At times it will be painful to try and fail, but it is the attempt that should be honored. Not everyone is blessed with a lot of athletic talent. We are sure that each of you is blessed with a lot of other skills and abilities. Discover them and use them. Be the best you can be in whatever sport or endeavor you choose in life.
Each new season will bring new challenges and the opportunity to develop new skills. As with anything in life, if you want something bad enough, you make it happen. Desire, hard work and a can-do attitude will help get you through the toughest situations.
We wish to convey to everyone interested in the Carrick Athletic Association from the players, parents, sponsors, coaches, umpires and Board members, a heartfelt thanks for all your support.
**ALL CAA PARTICIPANTS/PARENTS**
A parent or guardian must be at the ball field at all times while your child is practicing or playing. If you leave, you must take your child with you. The coaches are an all-volunteer group, they are not a sitting service, nor are they trained by CAA in first aid. Injurys, although rare, do occur. If a child does get injured, majority of the time, they prefer their loved ones, not their coach.
Mandatory for the 2014 Spring/Fall baseball and Softball Season.
For the saftey of our children, and the integrity of our Association,
** ALL MANAGERS AND COACHES MUST CLEAR A BASIC CHILD CLEARANCE/ BACKGROUND CHECK. **
To be on the field or dugout as a team participant, you must have clearances (this eliminates umpires) but includes scorekeepers. All Clearance forms must be turned in and kept on file by the organization. The Association will work with all individuals to assist with any questions regarding the Clearance Form process.
As a reminder, all parents, and or adult siblings of registered players are expected to volunteer working in the Concession stand, If you do not work your scheduled game, your child will not play until stand is worked. This is a volunteer organization. If everyone pitches in, it becomes easier for everyone involved. Also, if you happen to see garbage overflowed, supplies needed in the bathrooms, or just general clean-up, these are also areas that need help in maintaining the field and where volunteers are also needed.
