Opening Tourney Time !!!

As we move into tournament weekend just a few things to remember...
First, winning is nice but in the end these are just kids who love to play. The memory of the experience usually lasts far longer than the glory of the win. Let’s make it a positive learning experience for the girls! 
Second, please help to keep dug outs, bleachers, and parks cleaner than we found them. Please also feel free to hop on the fields in between games to groom and sweep them and maybe add a little chalk! This would be incredibly helpful for everyone! 
Third, umpires are a critical part of our organization and a valuable part of the game. It is a tough job and also very difficult to find personnel willing to be an umpire. Please remember they are human too!
Fourth, check pool play and bracketing online periodically. They are subject to change. 16u SINGLE ELIM has changed some. Please note changes. 
Finally, your ALL VOLUNTEER organization involves working countless hours across the county to provide what we hope is a quality experience for your young ladies. Consider not only asking a volunteer which includes our board members, our snack bar and spirit wear personnel, and our coaches if they need anything...little things definitely matter even if it’s just a simple THANK YOU. Those small simple words mean so much and keep us going even when the tank is empty! 
Otherwise, let’s have a fantastic weekend of softball!  Thank you!

Jamboree and Pictures

So many thank you's to everyone who made our Saturday South and Sunday North Jamboree and Pictures happen!  It truly takes a village and I am so grateful to mine who continually steps up and adjusts as elements and things out of our control get sent our way!  Special thanks to Parky's Pics for being a part of our league and processing two days of pictures for our 400 softball players and their families across the county!  Lotus Mountain for continually designing kick ass sweatshirts year after year after year!  And, to Josh Miraglia, South County Regional Rep who oversaw all the details of the South Saturday event as well as to Ray Turner, North County Regional Rep, who oversaw all the details of the Northern Sunday event today.  All were supported by various volunteers around the county including Mike and Rachel Minton, Equipment and Uniform Coordinators respectively, Shanna McCracken, Graphic Designer, for designing and processing the uniforms with the information she had from registration, Field Crews including Casey Box, Bob Pinard, Joe Brown, Ivan Driggs, and Pete Bartoo as well as Raffle Coordinator Jen Pinard!  This also includes many of you, parents, coaches and players alike, who jumped in and helped also!  You are very much appreciated!  

With that being said, you will find attached the much awaited schedule for April to Opening Tournament.  It is a multi-page document with the Master Schedule first and then the various age brackets broken down respectively.  The remainder of the schedule is pending interleague play with Redwood Fastpitch and once both boards approve the proposed scheduled games we will be happy to release the remainder of the schedule!   

Thank you for choosing Humboldt Fastpitch!  We look forward to seeing your young ladies play ball!  

Kelly Helms, President

Thank you to everyone who attended the assessments yesterday and registered with our league!  Wednesday night the board will be getting together to start the team distributions!  Our goal is to have teams rockin' and rollin' the week of March 18th.  Jamboree and picture day is much earlier this year so mark your calendars for April 6th if you are South County and April 7th if you are East and North counties!  Because our meeting will not occur until Wednesday we have decided to keep registration open until 11:59 p.m. on March 5th!  So, if you know anyone who is thinking about signing up but thinks they have missed the deadline please let them know ASAP!  Thanks so much!

Don't forget the 2019 Humboldt Fastpitch Softball Registration deadline closes this Sunday, March 3rd at midnight!  If you have not yet registered, please consider pre-registering online, however, computers will be onsite at assessments for your convenience!

Assessments will be held March 3rd at McKinleyville High School, rain or shine!  Please bring cleats and tennis shoes for both conditions.  8u players DO NOT assess UNLESS they are petitioning to play at the 10u age bracket.  Any player petitioning up should attend the time bracket of the age division they would like to play.  Otherwise all players from 10u, 12u, and 14/16u are expected to assess.  Outlying areas, however, like Hoopa, Willow Creek, and Southern Humboldt are exempt from attending the assessments.  

 The time break down for the assessments at Mckinleyville High School are as follows:

10u = 9:30 a.m.

12u = 10:30 a.m.

14/16u = 11:30 a.m.

 Thank you!
