On behalf of the entire 2015 board, I would like to say welcome back to our returning families and welcome to the families that are joining us for their first season at Seaview. Our goal for this season as in all other seasons in the past is to provide a safe, fun and positive learning environment for our children. Too often in today’s youth sports programs the importance of sportsmanship takes a back seat to winning. As we look forward to the upcoming season, please think of what YOU can do to support the volunteer managers, coaches and umpires to create an environment where we are making better citizens, not just better baseball players.
The SVLL board does everything in our power to keep the registration fees as low as possible and as you begin the registration process, you may ask yourself what is included in the registration cost. Here is what your registration dues pay for.
• Field usage fees (paid directly to HBCSD)
• Opening day pancake breakfast
• Field maintenance (partial)
• Picture package
• Trophies and pins
• Playing equipment costs (partial)
Along with the registration fees, our league needs to do a large amount of fundraising to bridge the gap in all of the other costs that are not covered by what you pay for your player. We need help from our entire community-not just with dollars but with donations of time and services. This is an ALL volunteer league and we can’t provide the great fields and environment for our kids without everyone getting involved. If you have a business or a service that you think SVLL can benefit from, please contact me to see how it can help us to continue to provide the best fields and playing experience in District 62.
I look forward to seeing all of you in the upcoming months and to this spring when we can all say Play Ball!!
