Spring & Summer 2017: Monday & Thursday Evenings, 6/5 – 7/27
Spring is upon us . . . The Cubs and White Sox are both playing good baseball and no doubt – things are about to heat up!
FSA loves baseball and we are committed to making this Summer’s baseball season better than ever! We pride ourselves in teaching fundamentals, having fun and creating a passion for team sports.
This year we are excited to implement new changes and fun additions to the structure of our baseball program. Please read about some of new additions below:
- We are excited to take the family atmosphere of our programming to the next level by offering parents the opportunity to be a part of the experience! Parent “Volunteer Coaches” will be asked to assist FSA Coaches during games and practices. This will no doubt add a strong and fun family-feel to programming, as well as offer players maximum repetitions and extra instruction.
Volunteer Coaches will assist their child’s team by playing catch, throwing pop-ups, grounders and batting practice to players who are not assigned an infield position. FSA Staff will continue to handle the assignment and rotation of positions, create batting orders, pitch and control the game – but having extra hands on deck will certainly help keep players active and enjoying the action!
*Parents interested in volunteering should contact Coach Ed (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info and confirm Volunteer Coaching Position. Our goal is to have 2-3 Volunteer Coaches per team at each practice/game. Please volunteer if you can make at least 75% of programming as consistency is key!
- Players waiting to bat will have the opportunity to get extra swings off a tee and soft-toss.
- Lastly, FSA will have it’s first “All-Star Weekend” with events for each age group and child to compete in: timed base-runs, long throw & accuracy contests, as well as fun wacky events.
Participants will begin the evening by competing along with their teams, then afterwards enjoy a league-wide evening of festivities, food and sno-cones!
These are a few of our new additions to FSA Baseball. We look forward having players and parents more involved; enjoying more opportunities to throw, field and swing and have fun together!
