New Player Assessment / Evaluation Session

Dear NCLBL Families,
Are you curious about new practice techniques or ways you could be working with your child one-on-one? This winter we are excited to offer two FREE COACHING CLINICS with NCLBL alum and professional coach, Dan Blum. You do not have to be a league coach to attend. Please no players; just adults for these focused learning sessions.
Due to the March 8 Coaching Clinic, no majors clinic this week. The next majors clinic will take place on Saturday, March 17, 12 noon - 1:30pm at Peabody School gym, then back to Thursday 6:00pm the following week. Thanks for your flexibility as we work around limited gym time and space.
The next minors clinic is TOMORROW/Monday, March 5 from 6:00-7:15pm at Peabody School gym. These clinics will continue at the same time and place for the rest of March.
Thanks and hope to see you this week!

Recruit a Parent!
NCLBL is in need of coaches and parent volunteers. To keep the league strong, we need help with tasks ranging from special events to coaching. All you need is a willingness to play catch with the players; help with batting practice; coach bases. Next time you are there watching your son or daughter play, ask how you can help. This is how most of our coaches first got involved.
Do you run a local business or know someone who does? We welcome sponsors at all levels to cover league expenses. Sponsors receive recognition on website, Facebook, uniforms, etc. Let us know if you have any sponsor (or recruitment) leads.
Let's get excited for a fun season ahead, and remember to tell your friends!

ANNUAL BANQUET/PICNIC AND ALS SOFTBALL GAME
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH @ 5:30 PM.
This year we are again hosting an outdoor picnic with activities for players. The event is devoted to recognizing those who have helped us achieve another successful season. In addition to the first place team from the regular season and the team winner of the play-off tournament receiving trophies, select players receive trophies for sportsmanship and skill improvement. The outstanding volunteer of the year and fan of the year are also recognized, as well as our graduating 12 year old players with a NCLBL sweatshirt (must be present to receive). All NCLBL players attending will receive food and beverages. Parents and guests will pay a small price for food and beverages to benefit the ALS fundraiser. We will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers
This year we are combining this event with our annual (19th Annual) softball game benefit for the Angel Fund in Memory of Jimmy Neil, a former parent of two NCLBL players. ALL PLAYERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PLAY IN THE SOFTBALL GAME AFTER THE AWARDS CEREMONY.
