SMGSA Visors

Posted by Sierra Madre Girls Softball Association at Oct 5, 2017 9:39AM PDT

Hello Parents,
If you are interested in purchasing a visor for your daughter for the current season, we are getting ready to place our final order early next week with our uniform vendor. We just need to know how many to order. There is a one week turn around time on their production. If you are interested, please email uniforms@smgsa.org no later than Sunday, October 8th.

Hello SMGSA Families!
There are still about 7 spots at each hitting clinic available for tomorrow. Link to sign up is:

Our fielding and fundamentals clinics are going to change around a bit for the 2nd half of the season. Because these are ongoing clinics, players are now going to be separated by skill level in order to get everyone the appropriate help.

Beginner – intermediate players: 6:00-7:00
Intermediate-advanced players: 7:00-8:00

Both groups will cover similar skills. The first group will offer more detailed instruction with more reps per skill set, whereas the advanced group will move at a faster pace and work on more advanced plays and skills. Both classes are open to all age divisions based on skill level, but an 8U or a 10U who chooses the second session has to be able to receive hard throws coming from older players. Please talk to your team manager to be advised on which session your player should attend.

Fundamentals Clinic w/ Coach Lucinda – This week, Coach Lucinda is out so Coach Nate Covey and League President Jeff Reisbeck will be hosting a catcher’s clinic at Heasley Field. This clinic will be for those that are catcher’s or want to learn to be a catcher. There is no charge for this clinic and the league Manager’s will be present. If you have catcher’s gear, bring it. If not, we will have some there for use. Times are as follows:
8U – 6pm-7pm
10U/12U – 7pm-8pm

Hello SMGSA Families!
This afternoon, and every Thursday until the end of the fall season, our league sponsored fielding clinics will begin at Heasley Field. Led by Alverno Softball Coach & SMGSA’s Director of Coaching, Lucinda Buchan, all players are encouraged to attend to work on skills and techniques. There is no cost for these and times are as follows:
6U/8U – 5pm to 6pm
10U – 6pm to 7pm
12U/14U – 7pm to 8pm

All managers of their respective divisions will be in attendance. No sign-up is necessary, just show up!

Our hitting clinic will still be going on every Thursday at Heasley Field, hosted by Jelly Felix. The cost of that clinic is $15 and going forward, checks need to be written to “Angelica Felix” rather than SMGSA. We still ask that you check your daughter in before she walks to the clinic. One of the concerns that has been brought to us about these clinics is that they aren’t ending on time however that is largely due to not everyone showing up on time. Please be prompt for your reserved spot as these clinics will begin at their respective times: 6pm to 7pm and 7pm to 8pm. Signing up via our SignUpGenius is required. A few spaces actually remain for tonight. Here is the link:

Our pitching clinics, hosted by Ashley Lopez, will also continue on Thursday’s at Heasley Field however this evening’s pitching clinic has been cancelled. The cost of the pitching clinic is $20 and checks should now be made out to “Ashley Lopez” but again, please check in beforehand. Clinic times are 6pm-7pm and 7pm-8pm. Signing up via our SignUpGenius is required. Here is the link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d4aa8aa22a7f58-smgsa1

We have done our best to make it possible for anyone that wants to attend multiple clinics in one night to be able to do so. Please email us at smgsa@smgsa.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Lastly, tomorrow, Friday, September 8th, is the final day to sign up to work the one hour shift per player at the Heasley Field Diner and receive your $25 deposit back. After tomorrow, the league must go out and hire people to work the unfilled shifts. The link to sign up for the diner is: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d4aa8aa22a7f58-fall

We look forward to seeing everyone one Sunday for their first games.
