My name is Amanda Pikala (Miles' mom) and I volunteered to be the manager for the Community 12/13 Sky Chairs team! Here is some really important information.
Field Clean up was scheduled for 4/9 but we were just notified that due to field conditions, that is cancelled and fields are unavailable for use until 4/18. We cannot have our 4/15 practice so that practice is cancelled. Regarding 4/13 practice at Freeman Batting Cages, we don't know if those will be ready for us by then. I'll let you know as soon as I know.
Picture Day is April 23rd at St. Therese Elementary School in the Cafeteria. Timing is TBD. Ordering will be online. I'll keep you posted with those details.
Opening Day is Sat, May 7th from 10am to 4pm at Bennett Family Park. There will be games, giveaways, etc. More details to come.
The annual golf tournament fundraiser is on Mon, June 20th at Deer Run Golf Course. There will be a silent and live auction, a dinner only option, etc. More details to come.
Another rule is that the players and coaches cannot have sunflower seeds, shelled nuts, and gum on the field or in the bench area during games. This is for everyone's safety; to avoid choking and allergies. We ask that players and coaches do not eat during the games or practices unless medically necessary. Fans can eat.
Allergies. Does your kiddo have any allergies? If so, please let me know.
Just a reminder to label everything. Water bottles, gategrade a play might bring for during a game/practice, bats, everything!
COVID. If a player tests positive for COVID, please contact the coaches as well as the MBA Safety Team: Meghan Selinger at firstname.lastname@example.org AND Charlotte Wheeler at email@example.com. They will walk you through the steps to take in accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnetonka School District.
Volunteer shifts. Each family needs to complete one volunteer shift throughout the season for each player. You'll receive emails from the league directly about this as they are the ones that organize and track this. More information can be found here.
Please utilize the RSVP function for games and practices in the Sports Signup Play App. If you have trouble with the app, please reach out.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to the coaches or myself with any questions or concerns. It's going to be a great season!
