The Minnesota Fastpitch Mentoring Clinic Series is back for the 2016 Winter season. The clinics are offered to all youth softball coaches of all experience levels and have found the series are especially valuable to the 8U-14U age coaches…and may be the most important clinic you will attend this year. As coaches you are setting the foundation for a players future career!
We are making plans for the 2016 season. Our first meeting will be Monday February 8th at 7 pm at the Hopkins VFW. Located at 100 Shady Oak Road, Hopkins Mn 55343

It is your responsibility to attend all of your games. This is a travel league. You showed up to a meeting, agreed to a schedule, and need to show up no matter the distance of travel.
You potentially jeopardize your team's participation in the Suburban League Qualifier, State, and Nationals by skipping games.
You also cause a hardship on the host team. They assume you are coming to play. They get to eat the umpire fee when you do not show up.
Remember you get to travel once maybe twice to these locations. Those teams get to travel every time and are happy to do it. Be a good partner in softball.
2. Individually register your players to receive rosters and insurance. Prior to league play. For 2015 one generic roster will be produced that will be used for league, weekend invitational tournaments, qualifiers and State. This will cover ASA, NAFA and USSSA rosters. Go to MN ASA to find your PDF Roster. **This IS your official roster**
3. After you individually register your players/team proceed to step 3. Follow the steps for ACE Certification and Background Checks. Prior to league play. For both services the fee is $25.00 for year one, $20.00 year two and on. If you only need a background check the fee is $10.00
4. Make sure you've taken the concussion awareness on-line course and print off certificate for your coaches book.
