CSJBA Presidents Report
After what seemed a long build up to the season, we have round 2 in the books and ready to bring on round 3. I have managed to check in to 8 grounds so far and looking forward to my next Saturday road trip to see more happy faces and plenty of good baseball.
Sydney Cup and Association Cup got off to an earlier than usual start, many thanks to everyone who helped with the selection process and those who took on coaching and team management roles. Best wishes to all teams and hope everyone enjoys the pre-Christmas representative program.
I’m sure most of you will have noticed an improvement with our social media content and activity, many thanks to Julie for her hard work and prompt attention to various requests at all hours of the day. It’s great to see photos coming in from clubs and rep teams, please keep them coming.
We have a CSJBA team of LL age girls travelling up to Queensland in December to compete in the Queensland Girls State Championships, keep an eye out in coming weeks as they will be not only training hard but also undertaking fundraising activities.
Details of the Archer Cup were released last week, this is an opportunity for LA 10, 11 & 12 Girls to participate in a tournament on 26 November at Kelso, hosted by East Hills Baseball Club. Registration links can be found on CSJBA and East Hills Facebook pages.
Onto a few housekeeping matters;
Memo to T-Ball Coaches
Every season more time is spent at Monthly General Meetings, Exec Meetings, and Rule Committee Meetings talking about T-Ball than all other age groups combined. We have more blow-ups, complaints, umpire abuse, spectator issues, confusion, and general angst with T-ball than any other age group. Ironically never has the blow-up, complaint, umpire abuse, spectator issue or general angst come from a player.
The players are not the problem.
What is the problem?
Spectators, Mum's and Dad's
I'm sure there are other aspects I could have included in this memo but I'm also sure you get the gist.
