Parents and Players -
It is with great anticipation that we prepare for the upcoming 2021 season. Coming out of the "year of COVID," we find ourselves in a year of transition. The board has been restructured to meet what we've set as our Strategic Goals and Initiatives.
1) Player Health and Safety - COVID has reminded us that our primary goal is to ensure the health and safety of our players. We want to minimize incidents that cause missed playing time. We want to continue providing a structured activity where players feel safe to be themselves and play with their friends.
2) Player & Volunteer Development - our end goal is to better support our volunteers in order to make their role easier and help our players play at the level they are striving for, not only now but in their future as well.
3) Become a Leading Community Organization - achieving this goal would benefit the league, and our families, in multiple ways. Going forward, we will strive to provide community service opportunities to our players, participate in more community events, and align with community organizations to increase donations. This would help our players grow as individuals and help maintain registration fees to ensure baseball is affordable at every level for every player.
As the calendar changes to January, it is time to begin indoor practice for all of the Woodstock Heat travel teams. The teams will begin practicing at Woodstock's Sports City Academy as well as Crystal Lake's Trinty Academy. All participants ( players, coaches, and parents) should familiarize themselves with each of the facility's COVID-19 protocols. The January practice schedule times and locations will be updated as the month progresses. Parents and players, please check with your coaches for any cancelations or location updates.
