MESSAGE FROM THE GIRLS PEE WEE CONVENOR 2018
Age group: For 2018 girls pee wee baseball will be for the girls born in 2005, 2006, 2007. Girls that are older play Bantam or above. Girls that are younger will play a rookie ball or t ball as per their age.
Expected Schedule: This year, there will be (1) one set scheduled practice during the week (likely Monday, Wednesday, Friday or possibly Sunday) and (2) one – two scheduled games with one during the week (likely Tuesday or Thursday) and one on Saturday mornings. Depending on how many girls register will determine whether the Saturdays will alternate as well as the necessity for a Sunday practice slot. This year, as part of an initiative to improve overall skill level, there will be an optional practice every Friday night that will be available to all girls pee wee teams and will be hosted by the Fusion Toronto Women’s team, The skill set will focus on more advanced skills to improve the overall technical skill such as pick offs, proper catcher skills, relays and run downs, etc. The season runs through May and June and the play off during the month of September.
Expected Timing of Games/Practices: Weekday games and practices will usually commence at 6:30 pm and run 60-90 minutes in length at the discretion of the Coach. Saturday morning games will commence at 9am and usually run until approximately 10:45am. Depending on final numbers or rescheduled games due to rain outs some games and or practices may be rescheduled to 11am to 12:45 pm on Saturdays.
Practice Preference: If you have a preference for a particular Practice day (for example a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday) please put that info into the comments section of your online registration and every effort will be made to accommodate your practice preference (although it cannot be guaranteed.) Please note that “Practice Day Preference” will be given priority over “Play With” requests. Unfortunately, there is no available “preference” for “game days” as weekday games will alternate based on your child’s team and schedule.
Field Locations: At the present time it is anticipated that Girls Pee Wee will play all practices and games at Westway Park, Norseman South and Tom Riley Park. If there is a problem with the fields, an alternate field will be arranged with due notice.
Play-With Requests: Please note that only “Reciprocal” Play-With Requests will be considered as per the Play-With policy on the RYBL Website. This means that if your daughter would like to play with another girl, including family, she must select that girl on her Registration and in turn the other girl must select your daughter on their registration. Non-Reciprocal Play-With Requests will be rejected. Multiple Play-With requests will be rejected. However, all efforts will be made to accommodate Reciprocal Play-With Requests.
Coaching Volunteers: RYBL is the best youth baseball association in Etobicoke because of the dedication of its parent Coach volunteers. Please consider expressing your interest in Coaching or assisting in your daughter’s registration application, as only through its many parental volunteers is the League capable of operation. It would be fantastic to have more women coaches. This year, provided there is interest, RYBL is open to the idea of having an all women coaching clinic to encourage more women to become involved.
Skill Development and skill assessment: Prior to the commencement of the 2017 baseball season, likely the two weeks in April (date to be determined) the girls will have a skill development session at the Proteach Indoor Facility located at 25 Whitlam Avenue that is included in their registration fee. The session will be run by Proteach Instructors with the focus on proper throwing, catching, fielding, and batting. At this point in time, we will also evaluate and assess all the girls’ skill level so that every effort can be made to create teams that are even in skill for a more rewarding and fun season. Also, on the last weekend in April, the Toronto Women’s Fusion team will run a free skill development for a morning or afternoon (times to be determined) to further develop the girls’ skills prior to the beginning of the season.
Picture Day: As part of the registration fee, individual and team photographs will be take during the first few weeks in May. A schedule will be provided by the photographer and will be part of the team schedule. Pictures will take place at Proteach Baseball Facility.
All Star Game: During the month of June there will be one scheduled All Star game that will call the best girls on each team to form two teams and have an All Star game. It is meant to be fun-natured and will give the chance for girls to play with girls from some of the other teams. The date is to be determined.
Play-offs will be held in the month of September with a round robin series that will follow a similar schedule of the games during May and June to determine the seeding. Championship and Consolation games to be held in the third or fourth weekend in September and trophies will be awarded at that time and pictures will be distributed.
Registration: Please register by March 1, 2018 to maximize the chances of ensuring a spot in the 2018 Pee Wee baseball League! It is going to be a great season and I look forward to being your convenor.
Thanks for your interest in RYBL and in girls Pee Wee baseball.
RYBL Girls Pee Wee Convenor, 2018
