Are you debating on whether or not to register your little one for little league this summer because you’re unsure of whether or not you can make it to games? Do you have multiple kids in multiple different activities, but only a limited amount of time?
Don’t let that hold you back! We have several parents from each level as well as coaches who are willing to give your child(ren) are ride to games and/or practices.
Once the game schedules are handed out (late April, early May….I hope), check to see if there are any games you think you’ll be unable to make and let us know. I’m positive there will be at least one person willing to help out.
We would love to see all of the kids out there as often as possible. We completely understand that not everyone can make every game, whether it’s due to family vacations, jobs, etc. But we want all of you to know that if it is solely due to transportation……we are willing to help out in any way we can.
⚾ Do you have old baseball, softball or t-ball bats laying around? How about extra helmets that no longer fit your son or daughter? Gloves that are a tad too small?
If you are interested in donating them to the Plainfield Little League, we would love to take them off your hands for some of our younger players.
I was asked yesterday, by a community member, to consider posting this as she and her family have a lot of equipment laying around that they would like to donate. And I immediately thought it was a great idea. Especially as our children grow so quickly!
If you are interested in donating items, please contact me at email@example.com. We will also look into starting an equipment swap/donation page via Facebook as well.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR ATHLETES, FAMILIES, & COMMUNITY MEMBERS!!! ⚾
As we get ready to head into yet another season of little league baseball, we would like to provide you with a few updates:
1. Bree Kotolski, Amanda Mills, Sara Friebel, and Tiffany Roberts have teamed up to run the Plainfield Little League program for the 2020 season. Each of us have children who play within the league and want nothing but the best for everyone involved.
2. Sponsorship letters will be mailed to local businesses within the next few weeks. If you own a business and do not receive a letter, but would like to donate this year, please contact Bree. Businesses who donate $250 or more will have a 4’ x 6’ banner with their company logo displayed along the outfield fence on one of our three fields.
3. Registration will be from February 27th to March 13th. No late registrations will be accepted. This allows for us to schedule games and create rosters accurately and ahead of time. Registration forms are available via the Plainfield Little League website or via the elementary offices at both Tri-County and Almond-Bancroft Schools.
4. We are looking to implement a few new things this season as well and will update you as we make further progress.One of which will be the new plans for the T-Ball teams. Our plan is to split our T-Ball teams into smaller groups and have them play against each other every week, which would mean NO traveling for away games! Another possible addition we are looking into is offering a week-long training camp for three-year-olds!
5. We will be looking for umpires and coaches soon as well. If you know of someone who would be willing to be a coach or an umpire, please contact one of the Little League Board Members (Bree, Amanda, Sara or Tiffany). Umpires are paid per game.
6. We will be posting blog posts throughout the season on our website. Some topics that will be covered are: Coaching Tips/Techniques, Catching the Ball, Throwing Mechanics, Hitting Drills, Practice Tips, Fielding Drills, and Equipment Recommendations.
Please be patient with the four of us as we are volunteering our time to help build our program. We will do the best we can to provide you and your child with a great experience this summer.
We hope to make things a little easier than they have been in the past by running the program with multiple people in various positions rather than overloading one person with all of the tasks necessary to run the program.
We would like to thank Rose Schultz for all of her hard work last season as she took on a HUGE role entirely on her own. Thank you so much for all you did for all of us last season. Your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed. Thank you for staying on to help us get things going for this season!
We look forward to working with all of you this spring and summer!
