May 15, 2018
The deadline for Grand Slam Academy in Alexandria on June 2 is May 16. (You can register later than that but a t-shirt is not guaranteed) . We would like to have as many of the Alex girls participate as possible. As of this typing there are 40 registered for this camp. The other teams in the league were also invited. This will be a jam packed day of learning and fun for the girls. At the end of the day the Renegades will have a short practice/scrimmage so the younger girls can get a look at what all the hard work develops in to. We have not been able to upload the brochure on this website so it has been sent by the Remind text message. If you did not receive it and would like to let Megan or Janelle know as soon as possible. We don't want to miss anybody who wants to participate. Thanks
Reminder - please put hair in ponytails! Long or short hair in the eyes should be pulled back. This is a safety issue.
REMIND SIGNUP - This is for updates and is the same for 2018 as it was for 2017.
I ask that you sign up for the Remind messages. This is how we will communicate regarding cancelled practices/games etc. Babysitters, grandparents, etc are welcome to join the text messages.
If your daughter is on the 8u team: text 81010 - the message is @8uale
If your daughter is on the 10u team: text 81010 - the message is @10uale
If your daughter is on the 12u team: text 81010 - the message is @12ual
Long hair should be in a ponytail and nails trimmed short. Failure to have hair in a ponytail and away from face forfeits the ability to play. If short hair is in the players eyes it should be pulled back. Safety first! Players should be to the diamond a MINIMUM of 15 minutes before game time. Parents: I would recommend face masks for your daughter if there is any concern about safety. Some leagues require all positions to wear a facemask, although our league only requires pitchers to wear facemasks. If you are concerend about your childs safety, please consider.
Uniforms - shirts will be provided
8u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats. Black shorts/pants. If wearing tall socks - all black.
10u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats, black plants. If wearing tall socks - all black.
12u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats (no metal cleats). Must have black uniform pants, tall black socks (no print socks allowed) and black belt if applicable.
