A League Parents,
-- Update: 4/29:
Unfortunately, this event was cancelled due to weather and a make up is not expected.
Our A League teams do not have scheduled games this Saturday April 29th because most teams do not have sufficent availability due to player involvement with First Communion ceremonies. Field time is availalble and we are going to assemble some showcase scrimmages with any A League player that is available and interested in coming out. Wear your uniform and bring your gear, we will have coaches and fresh game balls ready. Squads will be assembled with the players that attend, not nessassarily based on current team rosters. We will practice and scrimmage for the ultimate early-season title: Homerun Showdown Champion (sorry, no trophies).
Based on parent response, we expect about 30 players, but can handle more; so even if you did not respond, your player is welcome to attend. We have two availalble fields to distribute activities so we can handle as many players as are interested. No need to RSVP in email, but you can select the attendance on your SI Play App to let us know you intentions. It is a normal Saturday for all other leagues so the concession stand will be open.
The format may change based on participation numbers, but expect some practice time and some scrimmage. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help, please contact the A League Commissioner, Steve Brown by email: ALeague@skilestest.com. A League coaches are encouraged to help out; squad staffs will be headed up by the Cubs, Mets, and others.
