Coaches' Corner

All-Star Coaches wanted

Coaches,

With the introduction of All-Star teams for the 2019 season, CBGSA is searching for coaching candidates for our 10u and 12u All-Star teams. It is the first preference of the board that  head coaches NOT have a daughter on the team they are coaching, but parents are welcome as assistant coaches on any team. Coaching an All-Star team will not conflict with the regular CBGSA season. 

Later this season, we will assemble an All-Star coach selection committee that will conduct brief interviews with interested candidates and select head coaches from the teams. Head coaches will then work with the board in selecting their assistant coaches. 

If you have questions about the All-Star program or are interested in coaching a team, please contact our President, Tiffany Vehrs. 

 
Things To Plan For:
 
Thank you to our sponsors!

We want to thank Business Interiors and Equipment for the support with our registration. BIE produced and provided for us our paper information forms that went out to all our area schools. Thank You BIE!


 

A big thanks goes out to Michelle Boetger Graphic Design for the design and formatting of our Discount Cards. The new layout and bright logos really make our card stand out!


Upcoming Events:
Posted Apr 16, 2018

 CBGSA Youth Day - Hosted by BBCC Softball: Saturday, April 27th.

The BBCC Lady Vikings will welcome the players of the CBGSA as they continue their playoff push with doubleheader against the Treasure Valley. Players are asked to wear their team uniforms, as those in uniform will get free hot dogs and snacks, get to take part in fun activities, and even join the Lady Vikings on the field between games. The first game begins at Noon, with the second game scheduled for a 2 pm start.

Sun Basin Early Bird Tournament (Select/Travel team tournament) May 18-19th.

CBGSA hosts 2 tournaments during the season, and the first is rapidly approaching. May 18th and 19th, we will welcome 14u, 12u and 10u teams to town for this tournament which continues to grow in popularity. For the 14u and 12u divisions, we are at capacity and accepting WAIT LIST teams only. We still have a couple spots open in the 10u division, see our "tournaments" tab for registration information.

All-Star Tryouts: Week of Tuesday, May 28th to Friday, May 31st

Tryouts are tenatively scheduled for the following dates: 12u - Tuesday, May 28th. 10u - Wednesday, May 29th. Approximately 12 players will be selected for each team, and the player cost for the All-Star season should be approximately $100, which includes uniforms and tournament entry fees. There will be a fundraising opportunity for players to help offset the cost of their All-Star player fees.

All-Star Practice and play: June and July. 

Practices are expected to take place 2-3 times per week (typically 2 general practices and 1 additional pitchers/catchers practice). We are scheduled to play in 2 weekend tournaments (one in Moses Lake and one in Selah), and also hopes to schedule scrimmages with local tournament teams.

Check our website or follow us on Facebook for more information on these events as they approach.
