January 10, 2018 Issue

In this issue:

  • Countdown to Spring!
    • New Member Check In & Tryout Info
  • NEW - Sports Parenting Resolutions
  • C5T Baseball Academy Winter Camps
  • Call for Minor League Managers 


COUNTDOWN TO SPRING!

Registration is Open - Don't Wait!

We are counting down the weeks until registration closes, tryouts begin and Opening Day is here! If you haven't already, visit our website at vll.org to register your player. 

Mandatory New Member Check In

A 'new member' is a player of any age who has not yet played a spring season in Vienna Little League. Since we do not collect age and residency documents during Fall Ball, every player must submit these during his or her first spring season. If you have previously played in VLL but skipped one or more seasons, you are not required to produce documentation again. Players are not required to attend.

Check In Dates: Wednesdays, March 14, 21, or 28th at 6-7:45pm (attend only one; arrive at any time)

For complete information about documentation and other New Member details, click here. 

Mandatory Tryouts for New Majors Players and all AAA and AA Players 

Tryouts will be held on Monday, February 19th and Sunday, February 25th. Be sure to check the website to know which date and time your player should attend. Click here for all tryout details.  

 

PCA CORNER
Your Sports Parenting Goal for 2018

At the beginning of every year, many people make resolutions and set new goals. In youth and high school sports, PCA encourages coaches to strive for two goals: winning and teaching life lessons.

As 2018 gets underway, we encourage sports parents to let coaches do the coaching and to focus on your more important role of ensuring your child maximizes the inevitable life lesson opportunities that emerge throughout the season.

We know this won't always be easy, but we hope these Top 10 Tips For Sports Parents, from PCA National Advisory Board Member Carol Dweck, will be helpful in that effort. Happy New Year from all of us at Positive Coaching Alliance!
