I now have the information for our Coaches/Umpires meetings for 2015. We will have 2 Coaches meetings. You are welcome to attend either or both. The first Coaches meeting will take place on January 24th from 11am til 1pm at Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville VA at the Frith Exhibit Hall. We will also be having an Umpire Sign up right after at 1:3opm. Our next Coaches meeting will take place on January 31st in Greensboro NC at Mount Pleasant Methodist Church. Address is 5120 Burlington Road, Greensboro. It will be from 11am til 1pm. Our main Umpire meeting for 2015 will take place at 1:30pm. We will be catering a meal for everyone at both meetings so I need to know by January 16th how many from your organization/team will be attending and which meeting. We need to make sure we can accommodate everyone so I need a number of attendees. IF I see that we will be unable to accommodate everyone, I will limit meetings to head coaches only. We will do all we can to make sure we can handle the number of people at each location. At the January 24th meeting in Martinsville, I will announce our 2015 Tournament Schedule. I will post the schedule on website that night or Sunday, January 25th. At the meetings teams can sanction for 2015 and purchase our Pre Paid Tournament packages. We will have a limited supply of these to sell. Teams will also be able to turn in their list of 10 tourneys they would like to play in in order to get their 11th tourney FREE. I will have a form at both meetings and teams can fill them out and turn in to me. I MUST have these turned in by March 15th for teams to be eligible for this promotion. You CAN alter the dates as the year goes on but I must have the form turned in by March 15th. I will have more info later concerning drawings we will be having at each meeting. I will block off at least an hour of the meeting to allow any questions/concerns/suggestions/complaints from coaches. We have much to go over at these meetings so please make sure at least 1 coach from your organization/team will be in attendance. Please ONLY email me letting me know how many are coming to the meeting. DO NOT text me this info. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 16th.
We want to Thank all of Got Game Nation for their support of us this season. We are honored that you choose to play part of your Travel Ball season with us. We are working hard to do our best to make 2015 an even bigger and better tournament experience for all teams. I wanted to let teams know that may have checking on GAMETIMES today for updated scores that I had an issue with that page today. I was unable to update games once they were complete. We will have this fixed this week. I will have results from todays tournament posted tomorrow. Thanks again for all your support. Kristie, Larry and Tim
I wanted to let coaches know that our Virginia Coaches meeting for 2015 will be on Saturday, January 24th at Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville, VA. The meeting will begin at 11am. I am working on a date for our NC Coaches meeting. It will probably be January 31st in Greensboro NC. I will have more details on both of these soon. I am also planning our Umpires Meeting and it will be in the Greensboro NC area. I am planning on having it January 25th at 4pm.
I wanted to let teams know that our 2015 Elite Umpire Clinic/Showcase events are set for July 24-26 and August 14-16. More information on parks to be announced next month. I am also working on a Showcase event in either the Roanoke Valley or Lynchburg area for next year as well. Will post info on that when I have more details. I will also have more details on format but as of now I am leaning towards 5 or 6 Game Guarantee. Teams will know ALL their Gametimes by Monday before the event. Games will be 1 Hour 15/20 minute Drops (finish batter). This will allow coaches to know approximately when players play all weekend and can come out to see them play.
I wanted to let teams know that next season we will be offering a “Play 10 Tournaments, Get 1 Free” offer. Teams will need to email their 10 Tournament list by March 15. I will verify with them that the dates I post online to Who’s Playing is correct and then save a copy of their list. If a team must alter their original list, they can add another date to replace the one they drop. The FREE tourney can even be 1 of our 3 Day events. I will have more details at beginning of 2015 season.
I had a couple games that I had entered wrong so all ages please check Gametimes again. As a REMINDER, ALWAYS check Gametimes on Friday evening before every tourney in case of changes. I will add a post if I make changes but please make it a habit to always check them the Friday evening before a tourney. Thanks to all the teams playing this weekend. We will have several contests going on at the parks and we encourage teams to bring candy to distribute to teams. Teams are allowed to wear costumes as long as they are not baggy. Coaches that have not already done so, please VERIFY your times to me. Thanks.
We would like to Thank Allen Dressler and the City of Covington for their hospitality this weekend. We were treated so well and Allen, the park staff and concessions staff were so hospitable to myself and our umpires. We loved being there and the teams also had a great time. Things went so well we have already been awarded 7 dates next year at this complex. Jackson River Sports Complex has 5 fields so next year we hope to bring in 25 to 30 teams at each event. The dates for 2015 at this Complex are April 4 (Easter 1 Day), May 2-3, June 6-7, July 25-26, August 22-23, September 26-27 and October 11-12(this will be our Paint it Pink 3 VA event). Allen also wanted me to let teams know that our events in the summer months will have a free concert at the Amphitheater every Saturday night. Thanks again to the City of Covington for a great weekend.
The Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Greensboro NC has a special Got Game rate of $79 a night for the 1ou and 12u teams that are playing at Pleasant Garden Community Center for our November 8,9 Taylor Foster Memorial tournament. Please call Trish at 336.841.0140 and ask for the Got Game rate.
Many of you came to Pleasant Garden Community Center this weekend and saw the work that Megan does. She does a great job with the bows that she make and many have been asking me how to get in touch with her so I felt the need to post this info. Until her website is up and running, you can contact her at email@example.com.
