Answer: This week we will be working with the people who have signed up to coach to get teams selected and players assigned. If you are registered in our system to coach you should have already gotten a separate email from us regarding the coach selection meeting this Sunday. If you did not, please contact Heather Byers - 515-240-7111 - firstname.lastname@example.org so she can make sure you are properly registered in our system.
Also, if you are interested in helping out in a coach, assistant coach or board member role but have not yet signed up, please let Heather know as soon as possible. Our league is made up 100% of volunteers and we can always use more help.
The coach selection and team assignment process can take a few weeks so please be patient. You should all be contacted by March 15th at the latest (hopefully earlier) with your team assignment and coach contact info.
For those of you in Majors and 50/70 we will be discussing the possibility of tryouts and a draft with the coaches this weekend as we have two teams at each level. Please watch your email on Sunday night and/or Monday for information regarding this.
Please hold off on purchasing baseball pants until you have heard from your coach as there may be a specific color they ask you to purchase. Also, Little League will be changing all of the bat standards in 2018 so please don't go and purchase any expensive bats this year as they will not be able to be used next year.
Finally, looking forward in the future, practices for Tee Ball and up will begin around April 1st or shortly before or after (weather permitting of course). For Bam Bam, your first practices will be closer to the end of April. Our opening ceremonies will be April 22nd, so mark your calendars.
If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask!! ...
Do you want your voice to be heard? Do you have great ideas on how we could improve our Little League? Consider joining the 2017 Pleasant Hill Little League Board.
We are having a meeting tomorrow, Sunday, February 19th at 5:00 PM at The Social in Pleasant Hill (655 NE 56th St.)
Little League, by design is a 100% volunteer organization.
As such, Pleasant Hill Little League relies on the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers. There are various different positions throughout our league where we always need help and so we encourage you to give of your time and talents and consider volunteering today.
Being on the board doesn't have to mean that you are at the park 6 days per week. We have board member at large positions in which you attend board meetings and are assigned a night in the park maybe twice per month. We also need volunteers to help get sponsorships, order uniforms, pick up items for the concession stand, help with Bam Bam programs, etc. There are lots of roles in our league and we would love for you to consider helping out in any way you can.
It is important that we continue to get new volunteers because without new people stepping up to the plate our organization won't be able to continue moving forward and continue to provide all the kids of our community with an amazing Little League Experience.
Please consider attending the board meeting tomorrow night to see what it is all about and to help make your voice heard and improve the experience for all the kids in our league.

Conflicts arise between parents and coaches for various reasons, but high on the list is lack of playing time. Everyone wants their young athletes to be on the field instead of on the bench. So, how to best accomplish that?
