    10 Items That Should Always Be In Your Coach’s Bag

    At some point, Coaches should just say "Feminine products are in the ___ pocket of so-and-so's bag. Take one if you're ever in dire need." Or leave them with the Team Mom.

    10 Items That Should Always Be In Your Coach’s Bag

    I was going to suggest feminine hygiene products but didn't want to cause a commotion. But you WILL need them at some point for someone (and almost always on a "white pants" day). And the parks never seem to have those machines in the bathrooms.

    Softball vs Soccer people.

    My daughter had a brief stint in AAU basketball in fifth and sixth grades. I have NEVER seen such abhorrent behavior from parents. Jeering the 12U players, "in your face" gestures to parents from the other team, and cheering when girls went down crying (which seemed to happen to every player...

    In honor of Fred Willard...watch the movie All Stars

    My kids and I were literally watching "Best in Show" yesterday and dying laughing at his ridiculous commentary when my phone buzzed with a notification that he had died. Sad.

    Riverside becomes first school in Georgia to cancel fall sports

    Uh, our team has practiced in person already in GA and we're not the only ones (have seen teams on the same field before and after ours).

    Interesting post on Facebook Group about Stay to Play

    OR, you (of course) draw the 8:00 AM game and, since your STP hotel is 30 miles from the park, you have to leave the hotel at 6:00 AM and they don't put breakfast out until 7:00. So, you get nothing.

    Any info on NCAA dead period extension

    Nope according to this from OnDeck Softball. Can someone please explain to me the logic here? My DD is a 2022, which is bad enough, but the 2021s are getting ROYALLY screwed on many fronts.

    Interesting post on Facebook Group about Stay to Play

    Stay to play hotels are often up to 50 miles away from the park. And I can virtually always find an AirBnB that is half the price PLUS I get a kitchen and more than one bathroom. So, you're never going to be able to sell me on the idea that it's easier/cheaper/more convenient for parents.

    Will the 2020 USFA World Series in Panama City Beach take place July 4-11? Opinions?

    We were supposed to be playing in the PGF State Championship weekend of 5/16-5/17 and the PGF ATL Memorial Day Classic 5/23-5/25. Both have been moved to June.

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    We thought it was great. Especially for all the DIII schools/Ivy League. She got a lot of individual attention and has maintained contact with several coaches from last year (2022 also).

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    Look at the Headfirst Honor Roll Camp for this. We did the one on Long Island last year and are signed up again for the one on Long Island in August. Who knows if it will go forward, but they also have one in FL in November (conflicts with our showcase schedule or else we would go there instead).

    Ecstatic parent after home run

    Remember that this kid is only 4! Dad is seeing dollar signs/scholarships in his future.

    New Guidelines For The Team ~ What will your team do? What to expect.

    In APA Style (7th Edition), this would be as follows (dang, my hanging indentation won't "keep"): Sagedr, O., & Attar, P. (2020). Effects of petty Internet squabbles on post deletion and ban impositions by site moderators. Journal of Fastpitch Discussions, 1(1), 1-12.

    Giving seniors an additional year not gonna be easy

    4 years of ripple effect from this. Bama is my alma mater, but I'm glad DD (2022) didn't have her heart set on it.

    Thoughts on Guest Playing During Covid?

    Yeah, it's been hard enough on the kids. They cannot help it if they have a parent who is high risk or a grandparent living with them. If the parents decide it's too soon to play, that decision should be respected (and I mean respected, not grumbled about behind their backs). The kid...
