PANTS SALE!!!!!

Majestic Pants Sale. (Ends Sunday May 10)
The club has purchased a limited amount of MAJESTIC white baseball pants at a heavily discounted rate. They were one of the top professional baseball pants in the USA and all Australian team players wore these pants in world tournaments. 
If you are wanting a pair or two or three you need to measure precisely. Do not go by what your previous pants size was. The pants range we have are from Youth medium to 3XL. Please, don’t guess your size, you will get it wrong. The sale price is half the price that you would pay for these pants at retail. These pants will not fit most under the age of 12. 
All you need to do is measure up, email or text me with your order, bring your credit card and drive by my home at 4 Falkirk Court Kellyville. Ring me once you’re here and I will deliver the goods to your window (corona free)
The club has a few hoodies and coaches slickers as well. The hoodies are larger than the normal size. Perfect now for winter if you don’t have one.
Again, this is all you need to do:
1) Know your exact measurement; do not guess from previous pants.2) Send me, Mark Maguire, an email or text message with your order and approximate day (morning/afternoon/evenng) you’ll drive by to pick up.3) Bring your credit card to tap on the clubs terminal.4) Text or ring when you are in the driveway of 4 Falkirk Court, Kellyville5) Pants will be given to you in your car.
***There are limited numbers in some sizes and they may go quicker than others***
All the best

LL MINOR TRIALS

Trials for the 10-11 age Representative team, formally known as Minor LL, will commence on Saturday 1st February, 2020, Sunday 9th February .

The age range for this Competition is slightly different to that of the Hills’ Competition. The eligible age range is September, 2008 to August, 2011. To be eligible to trial players must be playing in a ‘live ball’ Competition, Bergan, Leonard or Catt Leagues.

There is confusion re the eligibility of nine year olds to play. My guess is that this will be their final year of eligibility.

Hills will enter two teams in this Competition, the teams will be of equal strength. Only 12 players will be selected in each team. This is a ‘trade off’ between two less players having the opportunity of selection and greater participation for the 24 selected players. Otherwise, the minimum participation in LL Championships is one ‘At Bat’ and one Fielding Innings. There is no use thinking that this won’t happen to your child because it most probably will.

Players are required to pre nominate to trial. Nominations to johnyardhere@yahoo.com.au, information required is Player’s Name, DOB, Club and two preferred playing positions. Pre registration by 29th January, 2020.

Players who have changed Clubs or Associations, without changing Residential Address and do not have ‘Friendship Status’ under the Hills Rules are ineligible to trial. Players with dual Membership with two Associations may also be ineligible to trial.

Date of State Championship is 16th to 19th April, 2020 at Aquatic Reserve, French’s Forest. Cost is estimated at $120. There is no National LL Championship for this age

Players who unsuccessfully trialled for LL Representative team are eligible for Selection.

This will be Hills’ most competitive age this Season as there a number of age eligible players to trial who are already playing in both Divisions of Catt League (13U)
