Nov 8th and 9th at Jenn Park CabinUpdated Saturday November 4, 2017 by OYO.
OYO 12U Softball Families
Mike Springer, Head Coach for the 2018 12U Red Storm Rec Travel team, will be holding informational meetings in November to discuss the OYO 12U Red Storm Rec Travel vision for the upcoming season. Parents of all girls planning on playing in the 12U Softball division during the OYO 2018 Spring Season and considering trying out for Red Storm are welcome to attend.
The hour long sessions will be held on Wednesday. November 8th and Thursday, November 9th, from 7-8pm, so please choose the time that best fits your schedule. Meetings will be held in the log cabin at Louis Jenn Park located at 10450 E. 63rd St. Most know this as the dog park on 63rd St. Follow that road past the dog park and around the pond where you will see the log cabin off to the right. There is plenty of parking available in the side parking lot as well.
Coach Springer, a long time OYO coach of Tiger teams at the 8U, 10U and 12U level, and a league commissioner for all 3 divisions, will explain the differences between our Rec Travel program and Full Time travel ball. You will leave this meeting with all the information necessary to make an informed decision about trying out for the 12U Red Storm. Topics to be discussed will include cost, time commitment, uniforms, try outs and cuts, winter workouts, tournament frequency and locations, coaches, styles of play, and the player selection process.
The Red Storm Rec travel team plays "after" the spring rec session and does not replace the OYO Spring league. In fact, spring season participation is a requirement to play Red Storm ball. By meeting now, our goal is to establish workout sessions all winter long. This will not only help to strengthen our prospective players for the 12U Red Storm team, it will also benefit your player by preparing for the regular spring rec season.
Come out and meet the coach and have all your questions answered.
