gmetcalf18@gmail.com
Team Info:We are looking to build a team of multi sport athletes who will be 8 years old or younger on 4/30/2021 who want to focus on baseball during the spring and summer. This will be a transitional team to bridge the gap from parks and rec coach pitch to federation kid pitch baseball. For 2020 we plan to train with a core group of kids to prepare them for the upcoming season of 8U Federation baseball, if there is enough interest we would like to run two teams and incorporate intrasquad scrimmages into our training regimine, as well as scrimmages versus other developmental teams in the immediate area. Our baseball season will run from the end of March thru the End of July with optional training sessions before and after these time frames at various indoor and outdoor facilities throughout Oakland County. Transparent monthly accounting will be provided for all families involved, no coaches, managers, or staff of any kind will receive any type of compensation or discounts, all families will evenly split all financial responsibilities to ensure costs stay as low as possible for all participants at this early stage in the game. We will discuss the possibility of playing in one local tournament in 2020 to get a taste of the 8U division and how the games are played at that level but this will be a local team made up of like minded families who want something more than parks and rec ball but aren't quite old enough for federation ball in 2020. Anyone with any interest in helping coach please reach out, we currently have 5 dads with vast playing and coaching experience on board but at this age we'd love to have as much help as possible ensuring each and every future Rockie is getting the most individualized attention as possible in the very valuable years to their development into lifelong ball players!
Tryout Notes:We're looking for anyone who is looking for something more than Parks and Rec ball but still need another year before they're old enough for the 8U division in NOBF. All positions are available, coaches are welcome to join on if you share similar ideas we'd love to work with you! PLEASE CONTACT COACH GARRETT FOR MORE INFORMATION AT 248 904 0340 OR GMETCALF@GMAIL.COM
