Things to understand with travel sports
As this year's baseball season begins to head into the home stretch, the Grizzlies organization is already looking ahead to next season as we are working on finalizing our try-out schedule slated for early September. As soon as that schedule is finalized, it will be posted on the website and distributed by coaches.
In the meantime, parents who have not experienced travel baseball before should take the time to educate themselves on what to expect. As a staring point, click the link under the headline of this article and you will begin to get a feel for some of the elements involved with travel sports.
Organizational Handbook Now Available
During the last few months, the Grizzlies Board of Directors has been working on establishing an Organizational Handbook that would basically provide the day to day rules of the road on how the organization works.
