That’s a Wrap

The 2024 Season has come to an end. Always such a sad time to say goodbye to this wonderful group that has bonded and struggled together for the last 4 months. Successes, tribulations,  unexpected challenges, newly discovered intensity all blended together to hopefully send these athletes out into the world as stronger adults. Thanks for all the support from the parents and community, Gratitude for honoring the life and spirit  of Bri, smiles for seeing their individual and personal growth. So many wins that are not reflected on the traditional scoreboard. Thank you all.

On to Regions

The Regular conference Season of 2024 is in the books. We were 6-5-1 in Conference play and head to the Region Tournament in Palmer on May 22nd. Please see the Regions page for more details but likely Gamechanger and MaxPreps will stay more current. Thanks for all your support. It was a crazy season with weather and cancellations but we have high hopes for this tournament. 

On the Final Round of the Bases

Season is moving fast. Thanks to all for the Bash on the Bay help. Lots of kudos from our visitors and some great ball games with thrilling comebacks. Schedule has been continually revised with the weather changes and we still have a lot of travel ahead of us ( as well as graduation, Concerts, Solo-Ensemble) and our final exam at Regions. This week we have two away games, our last two home stands and also a memorial to Bri Hetrick, on May 11th at 11am at the field. Busy athletic contests but a chance to remind ourselves of the bigger perspectives of living in a world with all too pervasive and unacceptable tragedy. 

Homer Softball Happenings

The Homer High High School Season will start off shortly with games in Homer and Sitka. Exciting to see what these groups of experienced and brand new players will do this year.  The summer Tsunami Season for players 8-18 has opened registration until May 18th – information on the Tsunami page. 

It Begins

Mariner Softball has a busy four weeks ahead. Once we start the season there will be no breathing. We need to build a well oiled machine in that time. 

Practice Schedule 4/18 to 4/23  …Monday and Tuesday 5:30-7 at HHS Gym, Wed, Thur, Friday 4-5:30 at HHS Gym. Sat- TBD.

PARENT MEETING Wed 4/20 at 6pm in the HHS Library. Please attend or run the risk of being assigned a position. 

Requirements for Practice

Prior to attending practice all players must have fulfilled the KPBSD Requirements. You must be enrolled in Planet HS to show that you have met the physical, TAD, Concussion and Parental forms. I am also including two forms – one for Demographics and one for information on the communication that should be kept handy at home. These should be returned to me as soon as you can but do not need to be filled in to practice. These can be downloaded and brought to the first practice.  They can be found on the Team Page

Season is Starting and so is Elsie!

Practice officially opens on March 4th (time not yet posted). We are pleased to welcome Elsie Smith, an alumna of the program, as our new assistant coach. She will bring her skills and perspective to this new season – the 24th of Mariner Softball. Plans have been underway for several months with uniform purchases, schedules, travel and recruitment.

On  a more somber note, we will be honoring the Memory of Bri Hetrick this year, one of our recent players who died last Fall under tragic circumstances in an attempt to wrest a positive lesson for the players from this horrifying incident


Seasons Starting

It is the time of the year that we are starting several seasons- Holidays, New Beginnings and the 2024 Softball Adventure. One of our responsibilities is to help cover the Concessions for the Booster Club, which adds to our share of Travel Monies for the season. This is our next opportunity.
