Sign up for St. Benedict’s T-Ball league is taking place now. This league is designed for children ages 3 – 6 years (pre-school – Kindergarten). The league gives our rising stars the opportunity to learn the fundamentals in a noncompetitive environment while giving our families the freedom to enjoy most of the summer.
We play on Saturday morning (9:00AM – 1:30PM) at the Kolmar Playlot at 4143 Kolmar which is the corner of Berteau and Kolmar. We have scheduled 5 games at the Kolmar Playlot and one fun packed picnic and trophy day. The games begin on April 27th ending on June 8th with a picnic.
Naturally, we will need many parents to be involved with this sport. Each team needs at least 12 players and a minimum of 4 parent volunteers. As a volunteer you can coach at the tee or in the field or help supervise the players on the bench. We don’t keep score but we do need someone on each team to handle the batting line ups and to ensure safety on the bench.
I am looking for a volunteer (or two) to help with organizing and operating the t-ball league this year. This entails helping with team division and parent communication. It also includes helping with game-day operations and organizing the end of the season picnic. If you are interested in helping, please let me know. Thank you!!
Please complete the online registration form by Friday, April 19th. Sorry we may not be able to accept late registration. All money will be collected via FACTS so please do not send money to school.
We are looking forward to another fun season!
