Here is some information regarding our inaugural BLASTBALL season. BLASTBALL is new to our association and is something we are anxious to get going and develop. BLASTBALL is an excellent introduction to T-ball and softball for boys and girls for the years ahead. It allows for multiple activities for youngsters with shorter attention spans. The game should be all about fun, while teaching some of the very basic fundamentals of the game.
BLASTBALL is meant to be a Parent/Child interactive sport. Parental participation (or guardian) is absolutely mandatory for the success of this program. The children will be provided with uniforms and with proper leadership and supervision, will be introduced to throwing, catching, hitting a ball from a ‘T’, and of course, running to a base that ‘HONKS’!
With close to 100 registrants for BLASTBALL with the Wilmot Softball Association, we want to best ensure all of the above can get off the ground without a hitch, although we fully expect some learnings along the way! In order to best ensure this, we are now soliciting all registrants to apply to be official “Coaches”. While the expectation is that in fact all parents and guardians will be helping out on the field, we believe it would be best to identify ‘group leaders’ that can help with setup/takedown, coordination of practice stations, timing and communication and playing the game.
Ideally, we are looking for 10-15 volunteers to be recognized as leaders and organizers; Coaches, if you will, who will be given all of the necessary information, instructions and tips for a successful season.
Please do not delay in volunteering. The sooner we have these leaders in place, the sooner we can create ‘teams’, schedules and plans for practices/games. Again, we really can’t get this off the ground without your support!!
You will be contacted upon receipt of your application, and we thank you in advance for the already strong support of this new program!
