I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all of our returning families and extend a warm welcome to our new families that are joining us for the first time. I’m confident your experience at BCLL will be great and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
This year marks 49 years for BCLL. Little League has provided communities around the world the opportunity for families to connect and for children to come together in a healthy, safe environment to learn the values of team sports and the fundamentals of baseball and softball.
I would like to thank the Board of Directors, Coaches, and all the volunteers for their commitments. These individuals give a lot of their time for the sole benefit of our children. Without them, we could not operate. It's because of everyone's combined efforts that Bennett’s Creek Little League program is such a great success!
We continue to make improvements to our facility, involve our community more in our endeavors, and are planning a variety of upcoming events to highlight our baseball/softball season. We ask you, as parents and participants, to help us provide a clean and safe environment for our children. Please remember the five simple rules when out on the fields:
1) These are kids
2) This is a game
3) The umpires are human
4) Parents should cheer for EVERYONE
5) ALL coaches are volunteers!
As mentioned, our league is run entirely by volunteers and, as such, is always in need of assistance in areas such as coaching, managing, board members and field maintenance. I challenge each and every parent to take an active role within the league. This not only helps further improve the league, it also sets a great example to your own children on the importance of volunteering and community service. Everything we do here at Bennett’s Creek Little League is done for the kids. It only takes a little bit of your time, but will make a long lasting contribution to our community. Who knows....you might even have a little fun!
The following are upcoming league events (all at BCLL unless specified):3/3- Tryouts 6pm - 8pm 3/4- Tryouts 10am - 1pm 3/5- Residency Checks @ Dick's Sporting Goods, Harbour View 11am - 4pm 3/9- Residency Checks 6pm-8pm in the board room above concessions. 3/11- Residency Checks 10am-12pm in the board room above concessions. 3/18- District 6 Manager Rules and Safety Clinic Meeting (West Park Church, Portsmouth) 3/25- Field Day 10am - 1pm 4/1- Opening Night 6:30pm 4/2- Games Begin
Lastly, we try hard to keep our facilities looking great at all times. Please take a moment to make sure that you place your trash in the trash containers and that you leave the restroom facility in good order for the next person to use. Please know your efforts are greatly appreciated and your actions serve as a model of just what an amazing community we live in.
If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your support and I look forward to another great season at BCLL!
See you on the fields! Play Ball!
