BASEBALL

 

Our Spring 2019 Baseball Season is in full swing! While the weather hasn’t always cooperated, we’ve still been able to get many games in during the month of May. During Saturday games, please consider stopping by our Concession Stand near Hauserman Field– we have food, drinks, bathrooms, and friendly faces! All proceeds go to support the SAA Baseball program.

 

The Schaumburg Slam continues to roll! Six teams comprised of players between 9U and 14U have been playing exhibition games against other youth baseball leagues around the area such as Gurnee, Huntley, Crystal Lake, McHenry, Lake in the Hills, Elgin and Arlington Heights. During Memorial Day, the six teams participated in the GTAAA Memorial Day Tournament in Fox Lake. They will also be participating in the Brian Kruger Memorial Tournament in July. GO SLAM!!!

 

Join us for SAA Night with the Boomers! On Friday, June 7th the SAA Recreational Baseball League will be the special guest of the Schaumburg Boomers at their game. Links for tickets and more information is available on the SAA Baseball Facebook page. Come out and support the players, families, and our community!

 

Mark your Calendars for All-Star Weekend! Our annual All-Star Weekend will be held June 28-29 in Campanelli Park at 1024 W Weathersfield Way in Schaumburg. Our 13U and 14U players will be playing at Boomer Stadium on Saturday, June 29th, as well! Besides the all-star games, there will be plenty of activities and concessions available. Come join the fun!


Fall Ball Registration Begins in June! If you like our Spring Baseball program, please consider our Fall Baseball Program. Fall Ball is a great way for your players to get an additional 9 more weeks of baseball), and transition their skills and learning from the spring season through the fall. Look for more information and registration details coming soon!


Want to be more involved with the SAA Baseball Program? We are looking for more board members to help support the program. Please reach out to Jake Wilson at jacob.wilson@saa-online.com if you would like more information.

TRAVEL BASEBALL

 

The Flyers travel baseball season is almost two months old and mother nature has still not let up. However we are very fortunate to call Polk Brach our home field as we are one of the only non turf locations that has been able to get in games on days where other programs fields are not even close to being ready. Having lights on both fields is a big advantage we have as a program as well.

 

All Flyers teams have been involved in numerous tournaments as well and have had great showings. 9u Blue, 11u Blue and 12u Blue all traveled together over Memorial Day Weekend to the beautiful Louisville Slugger Complex in Peoria and competed in a USSSA sanctioned tournament. A big congrats goes out to the 13u Orange team for winning the Bartlett Wood Bat Tourney. The pitching and defense dominated over that weekend. Several other Flyers teams have brought home hardware from tourneys as well. Feel free to check out our travel baseball page in trophy room for pics.

 

As mentioned in the previous newsletter article, if you are interested in becoming a Flyers coach please contact me to discuss the process. We will also have an 8u team as well so if you are a rec coach currently and are interested let me know. This process gets completed by the end of June as tryouts will be in mid July.

RECREATIONAL SOCCER

 

2019/20 SAA Rec Soccer Registration is open. We have Kindy-8th grade and a recreational girls fall high school league (Blackmore) available. Please visit the SAA Website to register. We need coaches and are looking to provide coaches training.

 

Also, sign up for the June 10-14 or August 12-16 evening Summer camps led by Soccer in the Community.

 

Thank you to all for participating in our 2018/19 Rec Soccer Season. Without the refs, volunteers, commissioners and coaches, we would not have a program.

SOFTBALL

 

The beginning of May kicked off with opening day at Olympic Park. The weather couldn't have been better and the girls looked great marching in the parade with their team. A special thanks to Menchies, Lou Malnati's, and Chick-fil-A for the coupons for the kids.
Also a big thank you to Matthew from the Bartlett
Challengers for throwing out the first pitch for us and
getting the games officially started, and Ashley Rodriguez
for singing the national Anthem.

 

On May 18th SAA Softball once again hosted the Bartlett
Challengers buddy ball tournament at Olympic park.
The day was a huge success with our softball girls helping
the challengers to play some baseball. A big thank you to
Paul for bringing the kids over to play and to our girls for
spending the afternoon helping out for a great cause. We
also want to thank the softball and players from
Schaumburg High School that came out and volunteered
their time. We are already looking forward to hosting the
tournament next season.

 

 

Registration for fall softball is open and will be closing
June 22nd so don't delay register early. Some leagues
may have a wait list, once we have enough girls on the
wait list we will open up another team for that league.
The fall season runs from the second week of August
through the second week of October with no games
Labor Day weekend.

 

Just a reminder to drop your raffle tickets off at Veterans
concession stand while you are playing a game there.
Please do not drop them at Olympic concessions as
they will not be able to accept them.

 

Softball will be hosting it's first annual movie in the
park on June 22nd. Come out to Veterans park and
join us for "A league of Their Own". The event starts
at 8PM with the movie starting at dusk. Admission
is free and the concession stand will be open.
