SAA High School – Registration Change - Important

 

Parents,

 

We have cancelled the March freshman/sophomore high school basketball league because the lack of interest. We are still planning on having a Freshman/Sophomore only League in January as well as a Junior/Senior League.

 

With that, we have extended registration to December 10th. Please have your kids get the word out and have their friends sign up.

 

The high school leagues are going to be games only on Sunday nights for both leagues when they start. Please contact John Durkin at John.Durkin@saa-online.com if you have any questions.

RECREATIONAL SOCCER

 

Do you need a way for the kids to stay active, social and keep their soccer skills sharp? If so, SAA Rec Soccer has an indoor program perfect for you. We have Kindergarten through High School leagues available. Each team will have 1 game per week, no practices and games are held on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday on a rotating basis. Registration fees are $110 for K-8 and $80 for High School until 12/8/17. On 12/8/17, the early bird registration discount is over and the cost of registration increases by $25 to $135 for K-8 and $105 for High School. The season runs from 1/8/18 to 3/14/18. All indoor games are played at the Schaumburg Sports Center.


SAA Rec Soccer is also looking for indoor coaches. If you want to get involved and coach, simply register yourself as coach or assistant coach.


Finally, we are seeking hardworking, dedicated and fun-loving individuals to join the SAA Rec Soccer Board. We have been fortunate to have great people volunteer their time over the years. We want to keep the program going strong and that starts with you! If you love the program, give back. If you have ideas for improvement, join the board and work for those changes.


See you in January!

TRAVEL SOFTBALL

The winter training season is well under way with over 60 Sluggers engaged in hitting lessons at our Slugger Training Center.  Every team has weekly hitting practice at the center, and each team works on defensive skills at a local gym.  Older teams are creating and completing their skills videos as well.
 
November saw the Slugger Coaches attending their own hitting clinic, taught by Frank Hill.  Frank went through each step of the hitting process.  Older Sluggers along with Slugger Graduate Coach Andrea Starr both assisted with the drills and learned from the clinic.  Work was concluded with and analysis of Slugger Players’ hitting videos.  The club plans on conducting 4 more clinics on different aspects of the game, including pitching.
 
We are in the process of planning on a 2 week clinic for younger players interested in learning the skills of hitting.  The program will focus on not only some hitting, but also some fun activities involving hitting.  T-shirts will be given to each camper.  More information will be available in the January Newsletter.  The Head Softball and Travel Commissioners will be coordinating the event; Coach Dan Long will be the lead planner and instructor.
 
Our November Slugger of the Month Awards have been awarded:
 
14u Ackerman
The 14U Ackerman team honors Sarah Graham as their November Slugger of the month. This fall, Sarah led pitchers with 4 wins and 2 saves, and a team leading 19 rbi’s and a slugging percentage of .727.   She is a model Slugger. 
 
14u Lehnert
Lindsey Onnezi was voted by her team as the Slugger of the month for November.  Lindsey was chosen because she is always positive and never gives up even in tough times.  Lindsey is also known by her teammates as a hard worker.
 
Finally ,we all wish our whole SAA Family a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year!
