OUR LAST HITTING SESSION OF THE WINTER WILL BEGIN FEB 15th

Don't miss out!!  Sign up now to reserve your spot with our paid hitting lessons.  Lessons are reserved for only 4 girls per 1/2 hour.

 

The hitting clinic can be found here:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a49aea922a20-oregon2

 

The lessons are being taught by Dani Olsen - she is from Verona, WI. She started for 3 years on their varsity team from 2000-2003 where they went to state all 3 years.  She then started all 4 years at Uw-Oshkosh from 2004-2008.  She has been instructing at camps and giving hitting lessons since high school and has sporadically been a volunteer Coach at both Verona and UW-Oshkosh when she was done competing for them.

OPEN GYMS ARE HERE!!!!!

 

Open gyms are all scheduled starting January 10th in the Netherwood Knoll big gym.  They go through February.  Enter from the back parking lot off of Main street.  Doors on right.  This is not a drop off babysitting situation especially for the younger kids.  For the 2:30 sessions a responsible adult must be present.  Softball is dangerous.  Kids get hurt.  We are not responsible for any of the children during their attendance.  We will have an adult leading the session but it is necessary to have parent involvement and support during the sessions to ensure more productive opportunities and safety. 

 

Anyone who wants to have a higher level of consideration for any coaching opportunities must attend most of the open gyms as well.

 

Attendance shall be based on birth years.  To be attend an older group you must have the OYS board/President approval.

2015 Parent Volunteer Expectations

Our program fees are set to cover the operating expenses of the program. Additionally, we have
downsized the fundraising efforts; however we need to ensure that all families are part of the program’s
success and development. In the past many of our parents have done their fair share, if not more, in
supporting the program in our fundraising efforts, such as field clean up and the June tournament.
However, often it has been 30% of the families doing 70% of the volunteering.

U10 – U12 players (Badger and South Central) are responsible for earning three (3) credits
or five (5) 
credits per family. Squirts (U8) and High School families shall earn two (2) credits.
Credits can be earned by 
participating in the following activities:


-- 3 credits for head coach
-- 2 credits for a 3 hour shift at the Tournament (May 29-May 31)
-- 5 credits Tournament Committee (spend most of weekend at park)
-- 1 credit for 2 hour shift for Field Clean Up Day

Additional credits for ideas you may have that raise funds for the program such as corporate

sponsorships, leading a fundraising campaign, or something out of the box -- just ask Dana.

You may opt out of this expectation by paying $75 (a player) or $100 (a family) during registration.

We will continue to communicate on this program. You will need to determine at registration whether 
or not you will participate or opting out of the program. If you have any questions, please email
