Winter 2018 Batting Cage notes

Its approaching that time of year where GCAA softball moves into our indoor winter home!   We may use Team Snap in January to spread batters around differing time slots.

WHO:  All Fall Ball ‘17 Softball Players   No registration required for current 2017 GCAA Fall Softball participants, all Fees covered with Fall registrations.  A limited number of extra slots may be opened up for new participants.

WHEN:  Saturday Mornings beginning January 20th and ending March 24th  No holiday weekend Saturdays

1/20, 1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24

10am - 11am slot : 3-5th Graders 11” Ball

11am - 12pm slot 6-8th Graders  12” Ball

WHERE: Long Island Batting Cages at 190 Broadway, New Hyde Park/GC Park  right next to Synergy Gym

This is completely optional and players may come to as many or as few Saturdays as preferred. Players need their own Helmet and Bat.   This is an informal program where every player will cycle through the cage 2-3 times per session.  Players can come for 20 min or as long as an hour;  30-40 min seems to be best for attention span.   It is crowded and parents are asked not to stay inside for the duration of the time slot, so keep that in mind as you plan times, and a drop off is preferred. Car pool if possible.  Adult/coach supervision will be there entire time slots.  

 

Saturday October 28th Games:  PLEASE LOG INTO TEAMSNAP AND UPDATE YOUR ANTICIPATED AVAILABILITY.

This Saturday, we will be playing all games AWAY.  All teams wear same uniforms as last weekend.   

10U and 12U games Scheduled at South Field of Theodore Roosevelt Park in Oyster Bay, on West End Avenue, Oyster Bay. 

7th - 8th Graders:  Tentative Game on Saturday vs Carle Place, however, I give this a 50% chance of happening and likely this group will be OFF this Saturday.

    1. 12U Team will play FIRST on Saturday October 28th, at 1:30PM please arrive at 1:00PM please.
