News and Announcements

Hello SMGSA Families!
Just a quick reminder that the 2018 Spring Season parent meeting is tomorrow, Saturday Feb 17th at 12:30pm at the Sierra Madre Rec Center at Heasley Field. Lots of questions have come our way in the last week so we’ll be sure to cover all of them tomorrow.
Right after that meeting ends, every team’s “Team Parent” is asked to stay for a brief 20 minute meeting on how best to help the managers and coaches with the season.
We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
