Official Rules for Recreational/Badger Leagues U10 and U12 Softball Posted

Official rules for our U10 and U12 softball teams have been posted. Use the links
below to view or print a copy of the rules. Remember that home teams are responsible
for securing one umpire for behind home plate 
and preparing the field for play (setting
up bases and pitching plate, etc.). If a game is cancelled for any reason it must be done
by 4:00 p.m. and the home team coach must contact the opposing coach by 4:00pm.

All players, coaches, parents and fans are expected to treat one another with respect. 
Heckling of the umpire is not allowed and it will be the responsibility of the coach to
control his/her players, 
parents and fans and put a stop to this behavior immediately.

2015 Spring Smash Volunteers Needed

Parents -- if you haven't yet completed your volunteer hours, signed up for a volunteer role,
or submitted the opt-out fee, now is your chance to sign up to help with the Spring Smash
softball tournament.

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.

CLICK HERE to view the volunteer sign up form. We need two adults to join the field crew
on Friday night (the easiest night). Additional spots are available on Saturday.  

CLICK HERE to view volunteer to donate food. Your food donation helps us by not having to
purchase additional items from our profit base. Please keep in mind that while most food donations
do not count toward your volunteer obligation, signing up for large items (such as meat or other
expensive items) can be discussed. Cooking brats prior to the event might count as well. We can 
be creative -- but let's all be a part of the tournament! 

If you have any questions, please email oregonyouthsoftball@gmail.com

Important Information For All Softball Families

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
