I hope this finds each of you well. The Mets' first practice and game will be this Wednesday, March 31. We will play at Horizon Field, which is behind the Horizons school at 4545 Sioux Drive.
With this being everyone's first time together, I'd like to aim for the kids and parents to arrive at 5pm so we can do a quick hello and introduction. We'll then practice from 5:15 - 6pm and then the game will begin at 6pm.
Our coaches kick-off meeting is this Tuesday, so I will likely send out more information Tuesday night regarding uniforms, etc., but for the moment, please plan for each child to bring a hat, glove and helmet (if you have one). If you do not have a helmet, I will have a couple on-hand for the kids to share.
Again, my only focus for this group is to have fun and learn the basics of playing the game. Especially with COVID impacting little league last year, I expect this will be the first time most of these kids are playing ball -- so I am just excited to spend time with everyone and give the kids a chane to be kids again on the ball field.
If you want a glimpse at the full season schedule, it is all loaded into the SBLL app, which can be downloaded from this link.
I look forward to meeting each of you Wednesday. If your child is unable to play on Wednesday, just let me know.
