Announcing K-2 Camp For Squirts & U8 Players

Dates: Sundays 04/12, 04/19, 05/03, 05/10
Time: 01:30-02:30pm
Location: Prairie View Elementary Big Gym

We're sponsoring a K-2 softball camp for everyone participating in our Squirts/U8
program -- as well as potential players 
who want to give
softball a try before committing.

Charnette "Charlie" Leikness will be running the camp. Many of you know her as
she has been leading the summer Squirts program for the past 4 years. She is super
excited about giving our players this opportunity. Some of our U12/U14 players will
be coming to help too. 
 
Each session has space for up to 20 players and will include 30 minutes of instruction
following by 30 minutes of whiffle ball fun. 
 
Registration is easy! 
 
1. Click this link to download this registration form.
2. Pick a session that works for you.
3. Send in your registration as instructed. 
4. Email Dana (oregonyouthsoftball@gmail.comto ensure a spot is saved for you. 
 

Important Notes:

1. Parents must be present during the camp. Softballs sometimes land on noses and
kids get nervous at this age. If you need to leave, be sure there is another adult there
to assist in supervising your player's safety. Things can get a bit crazy at this age.  
 
2. Players need to bring gloves and bicycle helmets (to be used when batting and base
running). If you don't have one, let Dana know as we've got some extras.
 
3. The handout includes information about the summer program. Please pass it along
to other families both in and out of our district. Registration is open until April 15th.

Oregon Youth Softball News

We are still looking for additional board and parent reps. Only a few current Board members
have kids in the program. Sheila and I have been the President and Treasurer for the past decade
plus a few years and 3 others have kids no longer playing league with Oregon. It is time for others
to learn and be trained on all the activities that occur year-round to run the program. 
 
We could use the following committee members. Note that these activities count toward your
volunteer hours.
 

-- Open Gym Coordinator
-- Umpire Coordinator
-- Tournament Coordinators (cleanup, umpire, volunteer, field crew, apparel, awards)
-- Field Management
-- Edgewood Clinic Coordinator
-- Field Clean up Day Coordinator 

If your player is playing with a club team, she is always welcome to come to open gyms as well as
well as play league. Do what works for your family. All is good.

 

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

oregonyouthsoftball@gmail.com
