SOFTBALL

 

Softball registration is still open go to saa-online.com and click the blue register button to access your
account.

Softball evaluations for for juniors, intermediates, and majors will be held February 10th at the Sports Center. Parents will be receiving a phone call of your daughters time on the 4th, 5th, or 6th. Evaluations are an important part of parity of teams so attendance is very important.

 

We also have the 1st annual SAA softball Candlelight
bowl registration open. The event will be held at
Poplar Creek Bowl on February 16th and starting at
7pm. Registration is $25 and includes a dinner buffet
of pizza, pasta, salad, soda, and 3 games of bowling.
Registration closes 2/9 so sign up early.

 

Registration is also open for the hitting clinic hosted
by the SAA Sluggers. Our 11am session is almost full
and there are about 10 spots left in the 9am session.
Register early to ensure a spot for this clinic that will
cover drills and techniques of hitting.

 

Do you know someone that may be interested in playing
recreational softball, if so let them know about the program.

Hopefully everyone weathered the cold temps and the
snowy start to January. The good news is softball is just
around the corner and we will be back on the fields before
long.

TRAVEL SOFTBALL

 

The Schaumburg Sluggers are hosting our annual Trivia Night at the Seville banquet hall in Schaumburg on Friday, February 15th, starting at 6:30 p.m. Unlimited food and beer/wine/soda along with a fun trivia game pitting each table of players against each other always make for a fun experience. Silent auction and raffle activities take place all evening, with all proceeds going for the benefit of the Schaumburg Sluggers organization, an IRC 501(c)(3) charitable entity. If you are interested in attending or sponsoring an auction item or table of attendees, please contact Sluggers Fundraising Commissioner Rachael Dolecky at rizzo21022@yahoo.com.

 

The Sluggers are also hosting our annual recreational league hitting, manager, and player clinics for SAA Rec league players in February, March and April. Our Spring PGF qualifier tournament is scheduled for May 11-12, and our Summer ASA national qualifier tournament is scheduled for June 7-9, both centrally managed and primarily played at Olympic Park (and other fields) in Schaumburg.

 

Our indoor training facility now features the SmartMitt training system, which provides for a unique training opportunity for players, particularly pitchers, through a real time, programmable workout experience, with results maintained for the player online and for use by individual coaches, even when the coach is not in attendance at the workout!

 

We continue to strive to provide the finest softball skills and mental game development activities, facilities, and training programs for our players in the off season. The results of the hard work the Sluggers and our coaches put in during the off season can be seen on the fields each Spring and Summer!

 

Please check out our website at www.saa-online.com/Sluggers. If you are interested in your player joining the premier travel softball organization in the area, please contact Head Commissioner Mike Maciejewski at mamltdlaw@aol.com for more information.

 

TRAVEL BASEBALL

 

Believe it or not, despite the cold temps opening day is only two months away (we hope). All 13 Flyers travel baseball teams already have one month of indoor winter training under their belts. Teams are looking sharp so far and our catcher’s are receiving great training in our Saturday clinics.

The month of February will consist of ongoing team trainings as well as MSBL and WSBL league scheduling meetings. Flyers teams are also booking their tourneys for the season. 12u Blue will be going to Cooperstown this July and several other Flyers teams will be doing out of state tourneys as well.

Please continue to keep checking our updated Flyers page on the website for training pics, organization and team updates, sponsor info, pics of new home jerseys for the whole organization as well as info on changes at Polk for the 2019 season.
