Schaumburg Boomers Your Hometown Team!

 

 

 

OCTOBER 2017

 

FOOTBALL

 

SAA Football continues to have a very successful 2017 season. We have several teams in the tops of their respective divisions in the TCYFL. Come check out a game, the Vikings have a winning atmosphere and the games are very competitive and fun to watch.

 

We had an awesome homecoming weekend. I want to thank everyone who helped put it together. We had great weather, great games, and a lot of fun.
Great Job SAA Football!

 

I would also like to give a shout out to SAA Cheerleading for cheering at our home games epically homecoming. It definitely adds to the excitement of our sidelines.

 

Conant High School would like to invite SAA Youth Football and Cheer to the Conant Varsity Football Game on Friday, October 6 vs. Schaumburg High School. It would be great to see SAA families there supporting their teams.

BASEBALL                  

 

 

Hello SAA Families,
SAA Recreational In-House Baseball is pleased to announce participation in the Part-Time All-Star (N60) Baseball program for 2018. This program is being offered by SAA as a member of the newly formed Northern Illinois All-Star League (NIASL). The NIASL is a competitive, part-time baseball league that features teams from various northern Illinois communities. This program will replace the SAA All-Star Tournament teams that have competed since 2011.


WHAT is Part-Time Travel (N60) Baseball?


The Part-Time All Star (N60) Baseball program was designed to provide in-house players the opportunity to experience more competitive baseball, on a part time basis.
This program is perfect for those players interested in playing more competitive baseball, in addition to the SAA in-house baseball league. It provides an opportunity for the player to play scheduled games against other communities with competitive programs in a Southern Division of the NIASL including Bartlett, Arlington Heights, Palatine, and possibly more. There will also be an opportunity to play against the Northern Division teams in Lake, Cook, and McHenry Counties. The program also includes the participation in two competitive tournaments in the area.


WHEN are games played?


From the beginning of April, through June, N60 players will play 12 to 15 N60 level baseball regular games, plus one or two tournaments, in addition to their regular in-house games with SAA (playing on an in-house team is a requirement). All N60 games will be played on Sundays, with the potential for double-headers, and will attempt to not interfere with SAA in-house schedules. Players will have to travel to the surrounding towns for all Away games. Home and Away games will be approximately 50/50 within the schedule. Practices will be on Fridays.


N60 players will be expected to practice an additional 1-2 days a week, on top of any practices they may have with their in-house teams, if applicable. (NOTE: in-house games take priority over any N60 games and practices)


WHO can sign up?


The opportunity to participate in the Part-Time All Star (N60) Baseball program is open to all registered SAA 8U-14U baseball players. Tryouts to be held the weekend of October 21st-22nd at the Hausermann/Sharon Fields complex at 1025 Sharon Ln, Schaumburg IL, 60193 . An exact tryout schedule will be posted in a few weeks once we have coaches committed. The intent is to create teams of 12 from each age league. These teams will practice starting at the end of October 2017, have a winter break when the weather becomes unplayable, and resume in January when the indoor facility opens. They will be registered for the in-house 2018 spring season in October of 2017.


Note: There is a possibility for more than 1 team at an age range if the number of kids trying out and talent warrants it, vice versa we could have an age range with no team if numbers are not sufficient.


COST:
The estimated cost for participating in the Part-Time All Star (N60) Baseball program is $300.00. This includes all scheduled games, umpire fees, tournament fees, and travel uniforms. (Note: cost of program is in addition to SAA in-house league fees). The $300.00 is due upon formation of teams indicating commitment to the roster.

CHEERLEADING

 

October marks the start of our cheer competition season. All the squads will be participating in a minimum of 3 IRCA cheerleading competitions. The first competitions will be held at Dundee Crown High School in Carpentersville, IL. All of our teams are excited to show everyone what they have been working so hard on the past few months.

The Cheerleaders continue to cheer at Football games and wish them good luck for the remainder of the season!

Cheer continues its fundraising program to help support the Cheerhouse. Cheer and Travel Soccer partnered for the annual Mum fundraiser and it was a great success. Thank you for all the support.

TRAVEL SOFTBALL

Player Clinic & Program Practice Huge Successes
The Sluggers conducted a Program Practice which was organized by Coach Swiatkowski and run by the Slugger 16u and 18u teams. “My favorite part was when we celebrated winning a national championship,” said Kim Kolodziej. Hannah Oh had fun teaching the younger Sluggers: “I think all of us older Sluggers felt great about helping our younger Sluggers.” 7 teams and over 80 Sluggers executed warmups together, the Slugger Way. For 2 hours, the Sluggers practiced several softball skills and concluded with practicing something 18u Gold Champion Coach Tony Rico preached: “Make your games movies. A good movie is one where no one wants to go to the concession stand. Keep your games spirited and fun for all, especially you.” Concluded Coach Phil Falcone, “Judging by the excitement all of the kids showed, the practice was a great one.”


Later in the month, 35 teams from different age groups competed in our annual Fall Slugfest. “It was a lot of work for us putting up temporary fences at our different fields, but watching the kids compete made it worth the effort,” said Coach Greg Dolecki. In addition to coordinating setup and takedown work, Coach Brett Lehnert made sure all equipment and supplies were at each field. Pool play began on Saturday morning and concluded that evening. “It was really a hot weekend. I was proud of our Sluggers as they played 3 games in the heat and gave it their all,” said 12u Coach Brandon Simmons. Every Slugger team earned a victory in pool play, the most successful the program has been so far. In the Championship game at the 16u level, the Sluggers 16u team prevailed over the Lemont Sizzlers. “We played 7 games in 2 days and stayed strong throughout the weekend,” explained team member Maggie Trotter. Mike Maciejewski, one of the tournament directors, concluded, “Our volunteers did an extraordinary job-from putting up fences, to field preparation and reporting scores, to handing out trophies and taking down fields. The strength of our program is in our members.”


October begins with our teams from 14u up going to local and regional college recruiter tournaments. Outdoor practices will continue until the weather changes. At that point, Sluggers go indoors to work on hitting and the mental game. “I’m really enjoying both working in the Slugger Program and working with my team,” said Coach Vince Ackerman. Coach Jeff Ardito summarized the fall season: “Championships are won in the fall. Our girls worked hard this fall to realize their dreams.”
