Some Important Dates – Not Long Now!

It’s almost baseball time again at Castle Hill Knights.

I’m not sure what is busier: the actual baseball/teeball season itself over spring/summer or all of the preparation work and representative commitments over autumn/winter? Either way, we’re sure all you parents are running around relentlessly trying to keep up with your child’s extra curricular activities with whatever they’re doing whenever they’re are doing it. Keep going, you’re doing a great job. The Knights committee thank you for your support and effort.

**These are the important dates we would like you to note in your diaries. Please read thoroughly**

TRY TEEBALL Days:
Sundays 6 & 13 August, 10am to noon.
Castle Glen Reserve.

This is awesome fun for all 5,6,7 year olds who want to come and see what all the excitement is about with teeball. This is where we need all our current members help. Please spread the word and invite parents and kids along to these Sundays. We also need helpers on the day to support Shane Holt our teeball coordinator. Email him to let him know you can be there. teeball@castlehillbaseball.com.au

SPRING TRAINING in winter. (No Cost)

Friday 21 and 28 July, 6pm to 8pm.
Knightsfield, Fred Catterson Reserve.

For players going into u10s, u11s, u12s, u13s (Little League), u14s (Junior League)

This is not compulsory. This is something the club puts on for two weeks prior to grading to give your athletes the opportunity to get back into the baseball rhythm. Please email Matt Watson vpjuniors@castlehillbaseball.com.au with your child’s intention of going. We may even put on a $2 sausage in a roll and open the canteen.

All Castle Hill representative players that have been playing and training all autumn/winter are not expected to turn up to Spring Training or Grading or the Squad Training sessions on the following two weeks.

AGE BASED SQUAD TRAINING.
Two weeks only.
Knightsfield.

This will begin the week of 7 August. Exact days and times to be announced.

At this point teams and coaches have not been officially announced. All players will train in their age groups for two weeks only. Players will be told what teams they are in by Friday 25 August and will then commence training the next two weeks before the season starts with their official team. Meticulous care is given in the grading and your child will not be judged only on how they performed on Grading Day. Any issues or questions about your child’s grading you can call Matt Watson on 0407 414 899 or Mark Maguire on 0452 663 473.
