CARPOOL POLICY
Carpool requests will be handled as follows: you will be allowed to request 2 other girls that you chose to carpool with, BUT those other 2 girls must also have your name down and the other girls' name. For example, Sara needs to carpool with Jenni and Paula so she writes down their names. Jenni must then write Sara and Paula down on her registration form. And, Paula must write Jenni and Sara's name on her form.

If you are coaching with other people,  the other coaches' daughter needs to be one of your carpool requests.  If there are 3 people coaching together, that will be your carpool group.

If you request the coach's daughter, the coach must also have your daughter in his/her request.  You are not able to request a coach.  Teams must be made each year based on the ration of each grade level in the division. 

By following the above rules, it will ensure that carpool needs are granted. Teams will be formed to ensure fairness based on the ages of the girls on each division. New teams are formed every year and are NOT dependent on the year before. Please understand this policy and discuss it with your daughter before you sign up.

We will be offering pitching, hitting, and fielding clinics in April and May.  Please check back here for more details after the dates'/times are finalized.
