2021 with Optimism

Please feel free to do some Dome time on your own or with one bubbled friend. We have had to postpone groups for now with the meteoric rise in disease transmission. Follow the guidelines, take a few swings and a few throws and dream of a healthy spring. 

Hope Springs….

Starting to gear up for some weekly practice times in the dome. Please let me know times that work and particular skills that you want to work on. Please also share with me your ideas for mitigating our risk. Join the split the pot raffle for the Booster Club    https://go.rallyup.com/e3b345/7YT77K

Sadness and Heart Break

With a heavy heart we received the news from ASAA that all spring sports are cancelled. This is a heartbreak for the entire team, but especially to our seniors-Annalynn Brown, Kaitlyn Johnson, Becca Chapman, Aspen Walli and Rayanna Vigil.  We have had so many great years together as I have watched you grow and had so many dreams for this year. We will carry you and this season in our hearts. Sometime soon we will have a great party and game when we can all get togher for one last team hug. 

Isolation Update

Trust that everyone is staying busy, working on some fundamentals and hoping that we will at least have a truncated season. If you did not investigate the Online Softball school at Packagedeal.com   please give it a look. I have put incentives on the FB or What’sApp pages to make it more enticing. Hannah is continuing to send out daily exercises and I have recommended the 30day plank app to build up that core. Take time with appropriate social distancing to throw a ball with a friend or hit a ball off a Tee in the Dome ( no heat please). A special thanks to all the businesses in town ( and thank them when you see them) who have faith in us and sending in sponsor support. It will all be held in escrow until we are sure we have a season. Keep the Faith, no different than being down 3 in the bottom of the seventh with two outs. We can do this. #LND 

Limbo

We are currently on hold for practices and game schedule pending the School District decision on Covid19 mitigation.  Stay tuned

It Begins

The week of Spring Break we officially have the HHS Gym from 6-8pm. Hannah and I will be there on Tuesday and Thursday for anyone in town and are open to doing more if there is interest. Please have all your Planet High School requirements done before practice ( permission, physical, etc) The next week (March16)  we will be at HHS gym 5:30-7, please gather by 5:15 to start warm ups. Bring water bottle, soft shoes, etc. We will go to SPARC on Wednesdays, please fill out the SPARC permission form that is in the Team Information section or on their website- it is under register for account, at the bottom. There is no excess charge to players for this  SPARC Registration   Can’t wait to get this season going. 

We are Growing

Palmer High School – the Moose- will be joining the Northern Lights Conference this year taking us to 6 Teams. Homer will be going to Sitka for a 4-6 team tournament on Easter Weekend.  Looks to be an exciting season as we are in pursuit of our Four-Peat on the Region Championship. 

Winter Plans

Schedule for teams is close to finished- See varsity Schedule and assume that JV is very similar. Hannah is in Dome on Tuesdays and Thursdays after School. I am in the Dome on Sundays by request. MJ is at ATR after school for you to get in shape and muscle up – check with GG, AB, DH. This can be the year if you all believe and work for it.
