Skills Day Information!!

Skills Day Information:

Skills day this year will be on Saturday, February 8th, at Genesee Lower Playfield, located at 4316 S. Genesee St.  There are two football/soccer fields next to the off-leash dog park.  We will be on the lower field, closest to Genesee Street. There is a parking lot and restrooms next to the field.

Here is some important information for the day:

  • Skills Day is only for players planning to participate in our Rookies, Minors, and Majors Baseball Kid Pitch Divisions.  Tball, TnToss, Coach Pitch, Softball, and 50/70/Juniors players do not need to attend Skills Day.
  • You must be registered in order to participate in Skills Day.  Please register before you come out to Skills Day.
  • There are two time slots divided by Little League Age Groups (i.e. Players Age on August 31, 2020):
    • 10AM-Noon - 8-10 year olds
    • 1PM-3PM - 11-12 year olds
  • Players do not need to be there for the entire 2-hour slot.  Players will work through warm-up, fielding/throwing, and hitting stations. Depending on the number of people there, it should take 20-30 minutes to work through all the stations.  You can show up anytime during the two-hour window.
  • Players will only need to bring their gloves.  Bats, helmets, and balls will be provided.
  • In order to maintain a safe environment, no parents will be allowed on the field as players are going through stations.
  • Skills Day is strongly recommended for all players in our Rookies, Minors, and Majors divisions as it helps us to form balanced teams.  However, if players are not able to make it, we will still place them on a team.
  • This will be a rain-or-shine event.  We have intentionally reserved a turf field so that we are weather resistant.  The current forecast has a break in the rain for Saturday; however, players may want to wear raincoats.  As long as conditions are safe to play, we will hold Skills Day.
Finally, we are still in need of volunteers to help run Skills Day.  We have volunteer roles for anyone.  This would be a great opportunity for any teens that need to log some volunteer community hours.  Please reach out to [email protected] if you are interested.
