FGSA News week of January 4

January 5, 2016
OPEN GYM, WEEK #5 = FRI 1/08 & SAT 1/09
===================================================================================
Happy New Year!
 
For the first time in FGSA history, we will be offering Open Gyms on 2 different days of the same week.  That starts THIS WEEK!  This is being done to provide additional opportunities for our girls to learn and grow, and also to allow those girls who have another activity that keeps them away from Softball on Saturday mornings to still get some Softball gym time.
 
Fri 1/08 - Fleetwood Boro
Pitching and Catching (10U and up)
 
Sat 1/09 - Fleetwood Middle School
6U/8U/10U - 9am-10:30am (7th/8th Grade Gym)
12U/15U - 10:30am-noon (7th/8th Grade Gym)
 
Coaches/Helpers, I trust that you will work together with the other coaches/helpers in the age group you've been working in and (1) make sure someone will be there to lead these efforts, and (2) make sure that there's a game-plan for the practice.
 
Parents, If you feel at any point that these practices are disorganized and coaches are showing up without seeming like they have a plan, please let me know.  I will keep it confidential.
 
I need a volunteer parent or 2 to sit at the entrance of the gym, and receive registration forms, and hand out Lotto calendars.
 
 
 
OPEN GYMS FOR GIRLS PLAYING SCHOOL BALL IN SPRING
===================================================================================
If there are girls who plan to only play for Fleetwood Middle School in the Spring or only part-time for FGSA splitting your time between both, you are still more than welcome to come to the FGSA Open Gyms.  You're still part of FGSA, and we assume we'll see you back in FGSA for the Fall season.  Come out and join the fun!
 
 
 
 
MINOR TIME CHANGES FOR OPEN GYM ON SAT 1/23
===================================================================================
If you have Open Gyms marked on your personal calendars please note the following change...
Sat 1/23 - Pitching/Catching has been changed to 10am-11am (5th/6th Grade Gym)
Sat 1/23 - 10U has been changed to 11am-Noon (5th/6th Grade Gym)
Sat 1/23 - 6U remains 9:00-10:30 (7th/8th Grade Gym) - NO CHANGE
Sat 1/23 - 8U remains 10:30-Noon (7th/8th Grade Gym) - NO CHANGE
 
 
 
COMPOSITE BATS & COLD WEATHER DO NOT MIX!
===================================================================================
A lot of people are spending a lot of money on their bats these days.  Just a reminder that if you want to protect your investment, you should be sure to keep your daughter's bat indoors during the winter months.  If it's left in the car, there is a chance of damage to the bat if it's taken out of the car and immediately used at our open gyms before it has a chance to return to room temperature.  Better safe than sorry.
 
 
 
REGISTRATION
===================================================================================
Just a reminder that registrations are due for the 2016 season by the end of Sat 2/06.  Still plenty of time to get everything in of course.
 
Also just a reminder that FGSA affords ALL girls an opportunity to play regardless of ability to pay.  If you are financially unable to afford the fees, no worries.  Please contact me directly and we'll work it out.
 
 
 
 
DECEMBER MEETING MINUTES
===================================================================================
The next meeting is Thu 1/14, 7pm, at the Keystone Villa.
