Welcome to Sr Rookie Division (ages 7-8) for Moose Jaw Little League!
REGISTRATION 2019 remains open.
Evaluations were held at Yara Center on March 16 - DON'T WORRY - if you missed the evaluations you will still be drafted to a team. Accurate player ratings are important for the player and the team to help ensure that the teams can be drafted evenly. We may need a bit more information regarding skill ratings, so please assist where possible.
COACHES MEETING and TEAM DRAFTING - Sr Rookie will be held on APRIL 2 at 7:00 PM in the ball shack at Bell Park. All players will be placed on a team according to the team draft process. Benefits of the draft process are many, including: even team competition, player development, multi-position play, and more.
COACHES - Thanks to those that have expressed their willingness to help coach. COACHING CLINIC will be on APRIL 7th and is highly encouraged for all of those intending to help with coaching - a refresher for some and a great place to start for new coaches - this clinic is free of charge (more details to follow). We continue to receive the odd 'heads-up' when we hear that there is a parent that is willing to help with coaching - this is OK too - THANK YOU. Coaching youth sport is a very rewarding experience, especially in hind-sight - please consider helping out, or perhaps a gentle nudge and support for someone you know that is 'on the fence'.
VOLUNTEERS - if you are willing to be of assistance but maybe not ready for a coaching job, please let us know and we can inform the coaches that they have willing helpers.
UMPIRE CLINIC - This one-day clinic will be offered on April 6th and 7th. Those that have expressed an interest in umpiring will be contacted with more details.
EQUIPMENT SWAP - the City of Moose Jaw hosts an open house for drop off and/or grab a deal on used baseball equipment will be on April 19th (tentatively). More details will follow.
SR ROOKIE PLAY SCHEDULE - the house league schedule will be finalized after the player draft, but here is a bit of information to help with your calendar planning: Sr Rookie regular league play will be on TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS at 6:15 pm. The Sr Rookie HOME HOUSE TOURNEY will be May 31-June 2.
INPUT AND FEEDBACK - many of our parents and volunteers have experience with 'what worked well' and 'things that could be improved'. Please consider this your invitation to get that feedback in to the coordinator, and thus the MJLL board. Let's get the 2019 Season off to a smooth and well informed start - and your feedback is invaluable to this goal. QUESTIONS or SUGGESTIONS can be directed to the Sr Rookie coordinator email at email@example.com
SPONSORSHIP - We are so fortunate to be supported at the Sr Rookie division level by the Kinsmen Club of Moose Jaw. Please show your appreciation to our Kinsmen with your support for their efforts in return. In addition, there are always opportunities to help with financial support of our teams and players - whether it be team or apparel sponsorship, selling and/or buying the latest fundraiser promotions (we all get it) - know that your support is recognized and is truly appreciated by our players, parents, league and club.
Next MJLL Board Meeting is scheduled for March 26th.
Thanks for your interest in Moose Jaw Little League. The 2019 Season is approaching fast!
