Congratulations to the 12u team on taking FIRST PLACE at the league tournament this past weekend in Marion. Some hard fought games and we stayed focused and got the job done! So very proud of ALL of our girls and the work they have put in to get better. Thanks parents for all you have done to provide this opportunity for your daughter(s). Next big challenge for the 12u . . . the state tournament. Can't wait!!!

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.

8u - tennis shoes or rubber cleats. Black shorts/pants. If wearing tall socks - all black.
