HD Instruction School

Howard Daniel Instructional School will be meeting at Legion West starting May 2 from 9-11:00 am for 6 weeks. Opening day is April 25.  If you like your child can come and march on the field with all the little leaguers.  Hope to see you all there  

 

Dear Howard Daniel Instructional League Parents,

Welcome to Vernon Rockville Little League Baseball. We have exciting news. Kim Derosier has been appointed Director of the Instructional League. She has a wealth of knowledge about baseball and is currently a coach for one of our Triple AAA teams.  Kim as well as the coaches of the Major Leagues will be working with your children to teach them the basics of baseball. 

Each Saturday, beginning on May 2nd from 9AM to 11AM and running for 6 weeks.  We would like to meet with the kids at Legion Field on the West Field, which is the back left field when you pull into the park. We will separate the kids into groups of 6. Like every level of baseball in the league,Vernon Rockville Little League relies on parent volunteers to assist  with the coaching of the kids. We will need 10 parents (or more) so that each group of children can be provided with instruction and practice. The league will provide parent helpers/coaches with everything you need to teach our youngest players.

What you can expect:
Parents can expect their child to practice running, catching, throwing, hitting off the tee as well as learning some of the basic rules of baseball. 

If you would like to volunteer and help to make this season great for our newest players, please contact Kim at  .

Thank you!

Kim Derosier

Opening Day VRLL Inaugural Season

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Opening Day for baseball and softball is just a few days away. The fields are ready and the Little League Board of Directors has spent a great deal of time organizing the day.

Please have your son/daughter arrive at Henry Park this Saturday April 25th at 10:30AM in their respective uniforms, this includes Howard Daniels Baseball School, also known as instructional league or TBall.  If you have not signed your son or daughter up for Baseball School yet it is still ok for you to bring them as they are our future and we want them to enjoy the experience. Your sons/daughters manager/coach will be instructed where to go from there. 

All of our Board Members should be wearing the same color TShirt with the saying "its all about the kids" on the back so if you have any questions please grab one of them for assistance.

At 11:00 teams will begin the walk to Gill where the Masters of Ceremonies Jeremy Albert, Vice-President of Baseball and Rob Silver, Vice President of Softball will welcome all to Vernon Rockville Little League and begin the schedule of events.

Games will be played throughout the day at Henry, Legion and VCMS.  Snack Shacks at all fields will be open and serving pizza, snacks and drinks.

This is an exciting day for all of Vernon Rockville. We hope you will join us. Let's play ball!

Thank you,
Vernon Rockville Little League Board of Directors

VRLL Umpires Clinic

Happy Spring to all we are extremely excited given that this will be our first season as a merged league.   We have more games and players which means that we need an even larger pool of umpires for the AA and AAA games. We are looking for former little league players and fans of the game to step forward and help us make this the best season possible for the boys and girls of VRLL.  We may have contacted you already to solicit help from older siblings of current players but we are reaching out again to find out if there are other adults or young adults ages 13 or older that would be interested in helping us fill the much needed holes in our umpiring schedule.  With school sports and activities, we need a larger number of umpires to make sure all games are covered. 

 

No prior umpiring experience…… NO PROBLEM…. 

 

If interested, there will be an umpire clinic at Legion Field this Thursday 4/23 at 5:30 – 8:30.  It will be a one night clinic that will go over rules as well as get the boys on the field for proper positioning, situations and overall umpiring techniques.  VRLL will provide pizza and drinks to help hold attention spans for 3 hours.  The clinic will be held by the District 8 trainers and we encourage participation from all even if they have done it in the past.  I am sure that each person will pick up a few things that was missed in previous sessions….. 

 

Maybe equally as important, our season kicks off this week and nobody had a definite date because of the late winter, condition of the fields and lingering snow.  I have attached the April Little League schedule which includes games on the 21st and the 23rd (same night as the clinic).  Understanding the boys can’t be two places at the same time, I would love to hear from some of our senior umpires to see if they could cover these games as well as other games in April.  Once the process is set up and I have a good database of umps, we can release the rest of the dates and divide up games as needed. 

 

Thank you again for all of your support with little league and as usual, please do not hesitate to contact me directly or call my cell phone below.

Baseball Update

A message from the VP of Baseball*****

Good morning parents,

First I would like to apologize for the lack of communication from me the last week or so.  I wanted to have all coaches secured for all teams in all divisions before I sent an update which caused a bit of a delay.  I was informed yesterday evening that we have now secured at least one coach for each Single A team (5 total) but still need volunteers as each team should have 2-3 coaches. If your son/daughter is in single A this season and you have time to help please consider volunteering.  As you all know our league is made up of volunteers and I understand completely how busy everyone is but our league will only be as good as the volunteers we have in it.  My point is we need a lot of help, I thought with the leagues merging, securing volunteers would be an easy thing to do, but we have found that the opposite has occured as we have a lack of managers/coaches.  We strongly urge you all to please help in any way paossible. If you can help out in any facet please contact our Single A director Chris Kozak (email: )

If you have not received a call from a coach yet please do not feel that your son/daughter is behind.  We have setup the first couple weeks of our Single A and AA divisions with more practices to get the kids prepared for games.  The Single A coaches will be contacting their teams within the next couple days, but if you do not hear from your coach by the end of this week please let me know.

Howard Daniels Baseball School (also known as instructional league) will start Saturday May 2, 2015 and run for 6 weeks.  The instructional league will be from 9AM to 11AM however we have not decided on a field yet.

I understand that some of you feel that your son/daughter is not in the correct division and as I stated in my email to you all back in March we know our process is not perfect and we may have gotten some kids wrong during evaluations but we will resolve those issues within the first 2 weeks of the season.  I've asked for patience a lot this year and continue to ask for patience as we work to get the season going.  We are in our first year of a merged league and are trying to make it as smooth as possible, however we fully understand that we have some processes that need to be improved. 

I take full responsibility for any "imperfections" we have this year and I promise you these issues are being actively worked on and will be corrected and improved for next year!

Our motto during the whole merger discussions was "it's all about the kids" and that mindset has not changed!! 

Thank you,

A message from the VP of Baseball

 

Good morning parents,

I hope you all are getting ready for some baseball and enjoying seeing the snow on your lawns melt away.  I know it just snowed all day yesterday but let's not let that discourage us, right!

I would like to provide you with an update regarding baseball.  We are close to finalizing our AAA, AA, A, and instructional leagues so you should receive a call from your son/daughters coach by Wednesday April 1, 2015.  

While I believe we have the majority of the kids assigned to the correct leagues I do understand our evaluations are not perfect and we may miss on some.  I want to assure you all that if we have made a mistake in placing a child we will correct the placement ASAP.  I ask for patience the first couple weeks while we (managers/coaches and league directors) decipher what changes (if any) need to be made.  Please keep in mind this is our first year as a merged league and we are all adjusting to changes that will ultimately make our league better.  I do realize these changes effect us all differently and emotions are a part of it but I again ask for patience as we try to perfect the process.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding baseball please direct to myself or the folks listed below.

Chris Burkhart    # 860-490-3098      Parent Rep
Keith Morehouse # 860-647-1333     Player Agent
Pete Gardiner # 860-558-6692           Player Development

Thank you,
