Hello Machine Pitch Team3!
My name is Michelle Campbell and I will be your daughter's coach for this upcoming softball season! It was really fun to see some familiar names on the roster this year! With everything going on right now, I'm not sure what that season is going to look like but we continue to plan, hoping for the best! Keith and the league will keep us posted with any changes or updates.
First, I'm really looking forward to coaching your girls! I played fastpitch through college and love the game and team sports in general. We will work on developing basic skills, being a team player, and mostly having a lot of fun!
Every week we will have two games (Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons) and one practice. We are waiting to hear back on the specific date and time for our practice. Practices were scheduled to start the week of April 6th, and games April 18/19. With the govenors announcement today, I'm sure this will be ajudsted somehow. We will keep you in the loop!
Here is a link to more information and rules for the league, if you're looking for some extra reading! http://www.mtkagirlssoftball.org/Page.asp?n=14170&org=tonkasoftball.com. You dont't need much for the season outside of a glove, helmet, and water bottle.
I hope you are all staying sane, safe, and healthy while we all adjust to our new normal these next few weeks. If you can, get out and play catch, throw some BP in the yard, but mostly - stay safe!
Any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. Looking forward to meeting you all soon!
