SUPER MINORS 9-10 YRS

A MANDATORY SKILLS ASSESSMENT WILL BE HELD IN MARCH!

CLICK HERE FOR SKILLS ASSESSMENT SCHEDULE

The boys skills assessment day will be the afternoon of March 11.  The girls skills assessment day will be the morning of March 11.  Players will be asked to throw, catch, and hit.  Pitchers will be asked to pitch a few.  Coaches are required to attend and teams will be drafted following the skills assessment.  PLAYERS YOUNGER THAN 9 BY THE LITTLE LEAGUE AGE CHART THAT REQUEST TO MOVE UP TO THIS DIVISION  MUST ATTEND OR THEY WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A MINORS TEAM. Keep checking the website for more info!!

The super minors division will be player pitch. This division may include traveling for the girls teams. Girls Super Minors will travel to Joburg and possibly one other location, and some of the games may be scheduled on Fridays or possibly Saturdays. For Super Minor girls this is a change from previous years.  The reason for the change is to allow teams to play full games (this rarely happens Monday-Thursday as there are always back to back games and we run in to a time issue) and to see other competition prior to All-stars.  Attendance to games and practices will be required. Your coach will ask that you participate with him/her 3 times a week. This could be 3 games or 3 practices or any combination of the 2 depending on game schedules.We realize things come up but with technology at our fingertips coaches should know as soon as you know if your child is not going to make a practice or game. At this level, parents are asked to volunteer to umpire the games.  Please consider if a coach asks you.  There is an "Umpire Resources" tab on our website if you need to learn the rules of the game.  Remember, the success of our league depends on parents like you volunteering.

Some basics you should expect your child to get out of playing Super Minors are:

1.       Basic pitching fundamentals

2.       Home plate catching fundamentals

3.       More position specific fundamentals

4.       Communicating with your team during the game

5.       Dugout behavior and good sportsmanship (COACH WILL NEED HELP)

Playing the game:

1.       Have team meet at the ball park 30 minutes prior to game time for warm-ups.       

2.       Have your lineups ready 10 minutes prior to game time.

3.       Umpire is scheduled by the home team, and the home team will supply a new game ball.

4.       Be aware of the time... if you are the first of two games, do not start another inning if it will likely not finish before the second game is                 supposed to start.

5.       Three outs or five runs in an inning ends the inning; this will help with time and pitching frustration for the younger children.

8.       Line kids up after the game to slap hands say good game.

9.       Have two volunteers (NOT COACHES) rake the infield.

During the game please be supportive to the coach, players, and volunteers. Please ask the coach if they need help with anything.

**These rules are consistent with what other leagues are currently doing as well. However, house rules can apply so please keep this in mind when traveling to other fields. The coaches and umpires will review the rules prior to the game. If you have questions or concerns regarding how a game is being played please speak with your coach. We are representing Gaylord Little League and would appreciate if you and your child conduct yourself using manners and sportsmanship. Everyone who participates with Little League does on a volunteer basis!
