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. Here is a link to SignupGenius for the Nutcracker Fair slots on Sunday the 3rd of December

All Good Things…

Must unfortunately come to an end.   A challenging year with the weather and finding ourselves but a cohesive supportive team and it all gelled at the end. A very strong finish in the Region Tournament, but even more important was the belief and perseverance in each and every one. In the words of Arnold -“We will be back!!”  On to summer ball and the chance to improve our skills more and maybe see the sun.

Donation and BOTB

First – we have received an incredible donation from AC/DC Electric to support our power needs at the Field. This will be a multi year addition to our program!!!!  Please thank them profusely

Second- BOTB is being reworked at the moment because of a cancellation from Eielson. Stay tuned

Parental Support

This is a “crunch time” to prepare for our first home game in 9 days and Bash on the Bay tournament in 11 days. We have muddy fields, no infrastructure and lots of work to make us presentable to the teams coming in. Unfortunately, the team will be gone  this week and I will not be available for administrative direction,  There will be work days on April 30th and May 1st. -and whatever troops we can gather on May 2nd and 3rd. 

It is HERE

After six weeks of indoor practice the season is about to crash over us. We still have much field work to do but will be travelling for games next week, then returning to JGP for two weeks of steady games. We need lots of volunteer and parental support for our initial tournament this year- The Bash on the Bay.  Please sign up here

First Week Done

A good start to the season with new players. Looking forward to Spring Break week 2 for all that can make it and then we get serious on the 13th of May. Hang on, it is going to be a wild one.
