NKLL Fall Ball 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 04 August 2014 07:45

NKLL Families,

We'd like to invite everyone to register for NKLL's Fall Baseball program this year.  It will run for 4 weeks, 2 days a week, from August 4th to August 28th.  For a player to be eligible for fall ball, they must have played in North Kitsap Little League during the 2014 regular season (baseball, softball, or T-ball), AND be planning to play during the 2015 Little League season.  

We will be dividing the players into different age/ability groups, meeting at the fields as described below.  The groups aren't hard and fast and we'll figure out what works best for each kid on a case-by-case basis.  The registration fee is $30.

Online registration should be up and running by 7/31/14.  An email will follow this one announcing the availability of online registration. You can also register in person on August 4th and August 5th at the Snider Park Clubhouse beginning at 5:00 p.m.  Forms will be available at the clubhouse.  Because we are late getting the word out and registration up and running for our program this year, it would be appreciated if you would please reply indicating your interest in the program.  We especially need word from any parents that are willing to volunteer.  This program has been successful and fun for the past few years and we would like to see the same happen this year.

Below is a description on how the program will be formatted:

Group 1:  A Field, Mondays & Wednesdays, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM: For kids playing AAA/Majors Baseball (kid pitch leagues) next year, typically ages 9-12.  This level is geared especially for kids who are planning to move up from the machine-pitch to the kid-pitch levels in 2015.  Since this has been a large group in past year, this group will also use B Field as-needed.

Group 2:  C Field, Mondays & Wednesdays, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM: For kids who played A or AA Baseball (machine pitch) in 2014 and are planning to play A or AA ball again in 2015, typically ages 7-9.

Group 3:  D Field, Mondays & Wednesdays, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM:  For kids who played T-ball in 2014, or who don't want to jump right in with Group 2, typically ages 5-7.

Group 4:  NEW THIS YEAR!!  A Field, Tuesdays & Thursdays, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM:  This group is for SOFTBALL girls who played AA, AAA or Majors Softball last year.  This level is geared especially for girls who are planning to move up from AA to AAA, or AAA to Majors.
Depending on interest level, we may open a baseball intermediate (50/70) level on Tuesdays/Thursdays as well, for boys 11-13 who are interested in trying that division.  Please let Matt McNamara know if you have an interest in leading that group!
For all groups, each session will be a combination of practicing age-specific drill(s), going over some specific baseball situations, and scrimmaging.  There won't be set teams like there are in the regular season; this gives everyone the flexibility to miss a day as needed for vacation, etc.  Our goal is give the kids an opportunity to have fun, develop their skills, and get a good head start going into next season.
To make this all work, volunteers are crucial and welcome! Anyone who is able to help us out this fall should contact Matt McNamara - the more volunteers we have, the more time we'll be able to spend with each player working on individual skills and improvement areas.  Also, if there are any questions about whether your child is eligible or whether the Fall Ball program is suitable for them, don't hesitate to contact Matt.

The Team section has a feature that managers may find useful.  There is a statistics module that will track the players individual statistics.  This article will give you a short primer on how to enter the data and what the different items are.

Great coaching is no accident. It starts with a love for the game. It grows from a strong desire to give children the tools they need to succeed on the field and in life. And it can happen in any league, with any team, anywhere in the world.

How Many Logins Do I Need? PDF Print E-mail

You registered on the Main NKLL.com site and then had to do it again to register your player.  The two didn't look at all the same and what worked for one didn't necessarily work for the other.

What a nuisance huh?  The challenge is that we are using two systems and they both require user identifications and passwords.  We are working on developing a way to integrate the two so that you can have a single login for the whole site.  That unfortunately is a ways out right now.

Here is what is going on.  The main NKLL site includes the ability to create users with varying access levels for website management and access to articles, to download documents, or to post messages in the bulletin board system.  We are also making use of a service called Manage Your League (MYL).  This service is what we used for the online registration of the players, the team assignments, broadcast emails, and game scheduling.  Part of MYL is the team page system.  There are some really neat features that we can make use of.  In order for the MYL side to be secure it needs a user identification system too.  Since this is a different piece of software it requires its own user login system.  At this point the two systems are not interconnected for the user login.
