Can you believe it? Baseball starts in 3 days! We have 3 key items and a request to go over today:
Item 1 - Parent Meeting
We will be having two parent meetings to kick the season off on zoom this Sunday, April 11th:
5U - 9U: 7:00PM
11U - 18U: 8:00PM
Topics will be…
COMBA culture and expectations
Teamsnap contact tracing
For security reasons, the zoom link for this meeting will be sent via email to the email that your player registered under.
Item 2 - First Practice Times
Monday April 12th our regular spring season programming starts. Thanks to everyone for your patience with us regarding the rostering. You will start to see your teams populating into your teamsnap accounts (with the email you used to register your child) over the next few days. Some of you may have already heard from your coaches! Some teams might not be populated until this Saturday, or even possibly on Sunday due to last minute roster changes, so please simply be patient with us if you haven’t heard anything yet.
Here is when and where your first day will be:
5U - Monday April 12th | 5:45PM | Cameron Park
6U - Sunday April 18th | 10:00AM
7U - Saturday April 17th | 10:00AM
8U - Wednesday | 5:30PM

Keep an eye on teamsnap for the address of the park your team will be playing at, and your exact times. You will be at that field until further notice.
