A letter from our 2016 Tykes Division Manager:

Dear Parents, Welcome!

Your child has been signed up for Tykes baseball. Below you will find some basic information about the upcoming season.

I will be the league manager and coach this year and am looking forward to the season. The main goal of the program is to introduce basic baseball fundamentals. We will create a very positive and supportive environment where your son or daughter will, most importantly, HAVE FUN. I will consider this season a success if your child can’t wait for next season.

 The season will begin on April 23rd and runs through to June 18th – 8 practices total.

 All practices are on Saturday’s at Nunns Creek Park, on the Midget field.

 We will not be playing on May Long weekend – May 21st.

 Practice runs from 9:00am to 10:30am.

 I will send an email by 8:30 if practice is canceled due to weather.

 Players should bring water, running shoes (cleats if desired), a batting helmet with chin strap, a glove and a bat to each practice. I recommend you bring a bat that your child can easily swing, a plastic bat is accepted. There will be some bats available for use if you don’t have one.

 Please email me if you know ahead of time that your child is going to miss a practice.

I am also looking for parent volunteers to assist with running stations and drills at each practice (direction will be provided). It would be optimal to have one parent for every two kids but would like to have at least one parent for every four kids. This means we need at least 12 parent volunteers. Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with baseball, it is more about keeping the kids focused and having fun. If you are able to volunteer please email me ahead of time. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

Warm Regards,
Ryan Chenard
