Adopt-A-Team Program (Adult Division)

February 7, 2012

Dear Senior & Intermediate Teams:

This year with your assistance, Softball Newfoundland and Labrador are excited to implement the Adopt-A-Team Program.

Softball NL will select various teams from ages 8-14, and designate a Senior or Intermediate team to mentor that minor team for the 2012 softball season.

Some of Your Responsibilities include:

-Commit to mentoring a young team for the 2012 season
-Cheer for their adopted team in at least one tournament
-Designate 2-3 players to assist the team with a some practices (minimum of 3)
-Guide/assist coaches with proper skill training

In return, the minor teams will have to agree to watch at least 2-4 adult games throughout the season. This would give our young girls and boys a chance to see what softball is like at the highest level in our province, and provide coaches with needed support and guidance. This will bring experience to our minor players and coaches and allow our adult teams to give back to the game.

If your team is interested in participating in the Adopt-A-Team Program please contact Lee Cose (Adult Director) or myself via email.

As Minor Director, I am very excited about this program, and I believe nothing but good things will come of this. Many thanks to our adult teams for signing on and good luck to you all in the upcoming softball season.

Kindest Regards,

Sherry Maher
Minor Director
