This is Matt Schirm, head baseball coach at Central College.


You're receiving this email because your son is between the ages of 9-12 and has participated in our Hitting League/All-Skills clinic in the past and/or played on a team I've coached.


I'm writing to invite your son to play in a brand new youth fall league I'm creating this September for baseball players ages 9-12. The league will run for four consecutive Sunday afternoons in September from 3:00-6:00 each day at the Pella Sports Park (Fields 2 and 3). The first hour each Sunday will consist of instruction from the Central College baseball coaches and players. After the instructional segment, players will be divided into teams by age level (9/10 together and 11/12 together) and a game will be played until 6:00. Central College baseball players and coaches will serve as coaches and umpires for the teams each week. An emphasis will be placed on having fun, teaching the game, and individual player development. Through the instructional segments each week, all players will learn proper throwing/catching fundamentals, a basic throwing warm-up routine, how to properly field ground balls and fly balls, baserunning fundamentals, and hitting fundamentals.


The cost for the league will be $150 per player (includes a t-shirt). We are accepting online registrations only. Here is the registration link:https://centralcollege.formstack.com/forms/youth_fall_league


Please reply to this email if you have any questions. Also, please feel free to forward this to anyone else who might be interested.


I'm very excited about starting this league and think it will be a great opportunity for your ball players to improve their game and have fun playing some fall baseball in a low-stress environment!


Thank you!
