Little League Baseball Canada is pleased to present The 2017 Teaching for Tomorrow Roadshow. The Teaching for Tomorrow Program offers quality coaching resources and materials to Little League coaches right across Canada. It is also designed to help to teach the game of baseball to their local Little League players in an efficient and effective manner as well as develop qualified coaches with the confidence to mold our young Canadian ballplayers on and off the field. The program is packed full of quality coaching information, and baseball specific drills to incorporate with your own Little League team. There are 14 Teaching for Tomorrow clinics scheduled from coast to coast in 2017. Little League Baseball Canada’s National Coach, Jesse Sawyer has assembled a committee of coaches from across Canada to help him deliver coaching clinics in each region. Each of the 14 clinics will be hosted by at least two members of the National Coaching Committee and they will present to the coaches who attend as much information about the program as possible including all the resources, and materials that will help them become more confident on the field whether they have been coaching for years or they are just starting to coach in 2017.
Park Clean up is this weekend. Please bring shovels, rakes, gloves and any other tools we might need to help prepare all of our fields for Ball Season.
We are looking for some team leaders to help with clean up day and keep people on task and equipped on each of our fields. We are looking for the following:
-Team Leader for Blastball Fields
-Team Leader for T-Ball Field
-Team Leader for Jaalaid
-Team Leader for Barbour
-Team leader for Milner for 7
-Team leader for Milner for 8
These Team Leaders would be great if they were from those age groups so that they can work on the fields they will be using. Please let me know if you or anyone you know is interested in these positions. Have the email me at firstname.lastname@example.org their name and contact information.

• All players are required to attend one Saturday session and one Sunday session. (please note your session so you don’t forget!)
• Players are requested to arrive 15 minutes before evaluation times to register and warm up. This will be critical to our efforts to get the players in and out as fast as possible so please be on time.
• When you arrive please look for the sign in table and have your player sign in. Your player will be directed to a warm up area. We ask parents and siblings NOT to be in the evaluation area during evaluations. This eliminates congestion and addresses safety issues.
