Again, a big thank you to all of the past board of directors and volunteers who help make EYBS a success!
|We as a board understand your frustrations with our valleys weather in the spring. We just wanted to say thank you for supporting your kids and our organization throughout the spring months. A lot of questions have been asked about why we don't run our seasons in the summer? We will try to give a couple of reasons:|
1)With this being a college town, a number of our participants are either children of students and/or faculty members. If those players are removed from our league, the number of teams per division would decline.
2)Vacations and conflicts become even harder to schedule around during the summer months. We would hate for a T-ball game to be cancelled because only 4 players are in town to make a game in the summer.
3)Slightly warmer, but no guarantee of better weather. For those of you lucky enough to have games on the warm days and nights of the past couple of weeks you can attest to those being magnificent baseball/softball days. The wind still tends to blow in the summer, and can still result in poor playing conditions. (This is just how our valley is).
4)Keeping the seasons together. Our main focus is to give as many kids as possible the chance to play this great game. Running the season during the same time period, allows siblings and parents the chance to play during the same playing season. Our volunteers put in countless hours to make these leagues a reality. We run our registrations to try to minimize mistakes and changes. We operate on a very tight timeline on going from registration, to team formation, to practices, to games. Late registrations and delays in this process would really effect our ability to organize our league.
Hopefully you are all enjoying yourselves, and lets all hope for warmer weeks ahead!!
