3A and 4A Division Player Evaluations Jan 28 Ortega Park

Hi SGSL 3A and 4A families,

It looks like we’re going to luck out with a stretch of good weather, so we’re planning on holding our player evaluations this Saturday at Ortega Park. The times for each division are as mentioned before;

  • Division 3A – 10:00 to 12:00
  • Division 4A – 1:00 to 3:00

Here’s what you need to know and do for the evaluation.

Arrival Time, Registration, and Warmups

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your division’s scheduled start time. Your first stop should be at the Snack Shack, to pick up your evaluation number and to confirm your registration details. We have a number of volunteers lined up to help with registration, but if everyone arrives 5 minutes before the start time, we’ll never get everyone processed. So, we suggest that you get there early, and use extra time before the evaluation to warm up. We’ll have balls and coaches there to help with warming up.

Jersey Sizing

There is one other important piece of information we need to get from you during the evaluation – your player’s jersey size. Each girl will be directed back to the Snack Shack during one point in the evaluations to try on jerseys to make sure we order the right size. Since sometimes players get lost or distracted between stations, please check with your player at the end to make sure she got her jersey sized. If she didn’t, stop by the Snack Shack and we’ll figure it out.

Pitcher Evaluations

Everyone who wants to pitch during the season should go through the Pitcher evaluation, which will be at the end of the evaluation schedule. Once we’ve finished hitting, we’ll start the pitchers warming up. Since we don’t have enough coaches to warm everyone up in a timely manner, we ask the parents to catch their daughters’ warmups. So, please bring a mitt (or a sibling who wants to catch) to the evaluations.

Conflicts and Makeup Evaluation

Finally, I’ve heard from a number of people who have conflicts on Saturday. If you haven’t yet told me about a conflict, please drop me an e-mail (PlayerAgent@sunnyvalegirlssoftball.org) to let me know. Every player needs to be evaluated, so we’ll hold a makeup session – probably on Monday – for those who let me know they can’t make it Saturday.

 

Thanks again for your patience with the weather, and please let me know if you have any questions.

Go SGSL!

Blue Jays Win 12U South Interleague Silver Championship

2016-blue-jays
Sakamoto Elementary School, South SAN JOSE CA, May 14, 2016 – The 2016 SGSL 12U Blue Jays had an incredible run to the Interleague Silver Bracket Championship. Having lost two of the three pool play games the prior week, the Blue Jays were, nonetheless, slated in a very high interleague bracket due to their close loses, and high run total in their only pool play win. As the fourth seed, the Blue Jays had to play the number one team in the bracket, the SSJ Adrenaline, on their home field. In an extremely close battle, both teams played nearly flawless softball with outstanding pitching, defense, and hard earned runs. The Blue Jays pulled away in the bottom of the fourth and held on with some outstanding defensive plays to secure the win.

The Championship game was between the Blue Jays and yet another SSJGS team, The Blue Angels, who were the number two seed in the bracket. This game lived up to what an expected Championship game is supposed to be – two of the best teams battling it out in a game for the ages. In a back-and-forth battle, the Blue Jays won a walk-off victory in the bottom of the fifth inning after time had expired.

A quick shout out the South San Jose Girls Softball League and teams for hosting an awesome event, and congratulations to the Blue Jays on a great season.

2016 Summer Shockwave Teams Announced

Thanks to all of those who tried out at the respective divisions, its always tough when we can’t accommodate all of those who wished to play. We do have relationships with other leagues and so if your player is truly interested in playing this summer, we will be sending out some options as they come available. The Shockwave committee would like to thank all of those coaches and Division Directors who helped volunteer on Sunday to conduct tryouts along with their time in team-formation meetings to help offer feedback and information to assist in the selection process. Sunnyvale Girls Softball has long been one of the more inclusive leagues when it comes to summer team formation, taking into consideration pitching and coaching to try to maximize the number of opportunities we have while balancing the fact that these are competitive teams playing in competitive tournaments all summer.
