Happy Holidays from the TELL Family
Hello TELL Families,
This is Casey Van Zutphen, Director of Player and Coach Development on TELL's board. As the season approaches, we are working to enhance the TELL Family experience for the upcoming 2020 season. Over the coming weeks, we will have more updates for you on exciting news around interleague play, our game schedule, and various events planned for the season. But today, with great pleasure, we would like to announce TELL's inaugural Preseason Workout program. In previous years we have had great success with our "Knock the Rust Off" practices held one week prior to tryouts and have decided to expand this into Saturdays starting November 30th. Each practice will focus on specific core baseball skill sets. Below you will find our schedule of practices. The great news is that these practices, run by current TELL coaches, are available at no cost for all players who have registered for the 2020 season.
Our TELL way of baseball life is about having fun, developing our players as young athletes and citizens, and enjoying competition. We hope to see your player out at the fields for our Player Development Pre-Season Workouts.
Happy Thanksgiving and see you on the fields!
P.S. TELL a friend!
Welcome to the 2020 TELL season. As we begin preparation for next year, we want to communicate our updated volunteer program that is designed to communicate the numerous ways that you can contribute to the continued success of our league. As you may know, TELL is a non-profit organization that relies on our dedicated volunteers to keep our league going strong. It takes a diverse group of individuals with a diverse set of skills to help maximize the impact we have on our kids.
As we do each year during registration, we will be asking you to inform the league of where you can commit your time for the categories listed below.
For this season, we are implementing a credit system that will bring focus to key areas of need. A total of six (6) credits per player will satisfy the volunteer commitment. Credits are based on the approximate time commitment for each of the associated responsibilities. Below is the list of duties and their associated credits:
Board Member – 6 credits
Team Manager – 6 credits
Team Parent – 6 credits
Team coach – 3 credits
Umpire – 3 credits (Single A thru Majors)
Snack Shack – 3 credits
Scorekeeper – 1 credit (Single A thru Majors)
There will be opportunities throughout the season to earn volunteer hours for working special events and field days. Some of the fun things we do that require help are Opening day, Grandparents day, Pancake breakfast, Closing ceremonies and field days prior to the season starting and during the season.
If your schedule does not permit, you may choose the option of a $250 tax deductible donation to the league, per player, to cover the six credits. The donation for a family with more than one player is $350.
Our board members will be working with managers and coaches to ensure that the volunteer work is spread as equally as possible between all our families.
An important reminder is all volunteers must complete a volunteer application each year to be used for a background search.
Volunteer obligations must be scheduled by April 15th for scheduling purposes.
Thank you very much for taking the time to volunteer. Your involvement in the league is so important to our growth and success.
We look forward to seeing you all soon at our fields.
