To all members of the Indians baseball Club,
Firstly, hello and welcome to another fantastic season of Indians Baseball – and if you are new to the club, it’s great to have you on board !!
With the junior season commencing this weekend, the club is now in full swing and so we will soon be turning to players and parents to assist the committee and ensure the club runs smoothly. We don’t ask for much, but I can assure you that running a club of our size is no easy task - so please consider this whenever you are approached for help.
UMPIRING DUTES – SENIOR PLAYERS;
At some stage throughout the season -all senior players will be rostered on to umpire either a junior or lower grade senior game during the season. Let me be clear - this is non-negotiable and is a requirement whenever we are the home team so all senior players will need to take their turn at fulfilling their duties. Once the roster is issued, players must turn up and do the duty – If you cannot do your rostered spot, then it’s your responsibility to arrange a swap with another player. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES JUST NOT SHOW UP – this is extremely unfair to the teams playing.
PLEASE NOTE: SENIOR PLAYERS THAT FAIL TO TURN UP FOR THEIR ROSTERED UMPIRING DUTY WILL BE SUSPENDED FROM PLAYING THEIR NEXT GAME, AND I ASSURE YOU THAT ALL OUR SENIOR COACHES WILL SUPPORT THIS STANCE.
CANTEEN – JUNIOR PARENTS/SOME SENIOR PLAYERS;
When the club has scheduled home games (at Stirling) we are very keen to open our canteen facility – this not only provides a source of food and beverage for players and supporters of both teams, but is also a very valuable source of much needed revenue for the club.
Clearly, this task also requires the help of many volunteers and so a ‘Canteen Roster’ will be prepared and issued soon asking for your assistance. This will be co-ordinated and communicated to all junior teams via your respective coach.
Please note, the roster will involve parents of all our junior players and we ask that you commit a couple of hours as per the roster and contribute to the club’s ongoing success. Again, if you are rostered on to do a duty then you must attend or arrange a swap with someone else – this is your responsibility so do not assume it will be taken care of regardless.
Finally, please understand that as a committee we do try and make these volunteer rosters as fair and equitable as possible, so your assistance in fulfilling your allotted duties is greatly appreciated.
