Registration is OPEN for the 2016 season.
The MBSC would like to thank all the sponsors, beer vendors, wine vendors, whiskey vendors and to all those that attended.
It is because of the generous support from our community that this event was a success.
The MBSC Softball Committee is excited to announce a change to our team formation process for 2016.
In past years, as many of you are aware, players were given the option at the point of registration to choose if they wanted to be evaluated for one of our competitive teams or play in our recreational league. While this has worked well over the years, we feel that we can improve the overall experience for the girls by making the following change.
In order to have a better understanding of the overall skill level of the girls in our Middleton program and to allow the girls an opportunity to gauge where their skill level is compared to others, we would like to have all registered players ages 9 through 15 participate in the evaluation process on March 13, 2016. So, when you go through the registration process this year, you will simply indicate the player’s age as of Jan 1, 2016.
Another reason for having all the girls participate in the evaluation process is to assist our program leaders in placing the girls on the level of team where they can be most successful and best fits their developmental path. As in the past, we plan to field 1-2 competitive teams at each age level and field as many teams in the rec program as we are able to fill rosters.
We will spend time with parents and players at the evaluation day on March 13th to provide an overview of the competitive and recreational leagues. We will also explain the time commitments and fees related to each. Evaluation times are yet to be determined and will be communicated in a future email.
Families will certainly have the opportunity to opt out of the competitive team consideration after the evaluation process and league overview meetings have been completed on March 13th.
For players who are not able to attend the evaluation on March 13th we will do our best to place them on the appropriate team.
Also, we recognize that there are families and players who are absolutely sure they want to play in the rec league and do not want to participate in the evaluation process. To help us plan for the evaluation day attendance, please contact our recreation league director, Brenda Ziegler at email@example.com prior to March 1st.
Lastly, please note that both baseball and softball online registration will open on January 1. More information on registration will be provided in a separate email from MBSC.
Thank you for your continued support and participation and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
