Congrats to the 8u and 10u teams this evening on two great opening season wins! The future is bright as we will only get better! :) I have put the June practice schedule on the calendar. We may not practice on all the Thursdays but will have them on the calendar and can always cancel. 10u is scheduled to play in the tournament at Canistota on June 10.

Long hair should be in a pony tail and nails trimmed short. Safety first. Failure to have hair in a pony tail and away from face forfeits the ability to play. 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 face masks, if you are concerend about your childs safety, please consider.
UNIFORMS - We are getting new RED Alex Angels uniform shirts. Hopefully, we will be able to pick those up and hand out tomorrow. We do have a few pairs of black pants that parents have donated that will be available on a first come first serve basis.
8u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats. Black shorts. If wearing tall socks all black.
10u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats, black shorts or preferably black pants. 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.
