Our League is off to a good start so far this season in all three divisions. To our 8U families, let me please remind everyone that we have two new Managers and many players who are new to our League. Especially at the 8U level, our League’s emphasis has been and will continue to be on developing players and helping them understand the fundamentals and Rules of the game. With that being said, please remember that our managers, coaches and umpires are always trying to do their best to enforce the Rules and be as fair as possible. Umpires do not get every call right every time. At the 8U level, we have to balance teaching, having fun and, most importantly, safety.
All parents and players have signed a Code of Conduct form. Especially at the 8U level, players can be affected by the actions and words of parents and spectators. While we encourage cheering and positive reinforcement, we will not accept or tolerate parents and spectators badgering players, managers/coaches or umpires.
Finally, I have it on very good information that ESPN will not be covering any OLL games this season and the pro and college scouts have decided that no offers will be made to any OLL player this season. Keep it fun and keep the focus on the kids, please!
Sud Patel, OLL President.
