Update email sent to coaches

Coaches,

I wanted to update you on the baseball and softball season.  We have 5 different plans and 5 different schedules we have already done. These can be adapted to many different scenarios including but not limited to: schools going back April 10, schools going back May 11, schools being canceled completely, schools going back and extending to July for classes.  We have secured more game days. game time slots, and more fields.  In a league with teams playing each other game schedules impact everyone not like a select team playing a tournament. A lot of attention is required.  We are following the guidelines per the Presidents press conference this week.  To give you an idea we can start May 11 and finish games by the end of May based on what we have reserved.

As more clarity comes through we will immediately release the schedule. No one knows or can predict what will happen tomorrow or in 4 weeks.  People will want to get back to normalcy. The first steps will be churches, schools, restaurants,  and youth sports.  We know the kids will be anxious to play, see friends, and get out of the house. When the time comes we will ramp up very quickly. TFL has used many white boards, computer screens,  and software programs to get this done.  I want to thank Tina, Ashley, Leslie, Alan, Sherry, Jon, and Mary for all their time working on this. Additionally the guys at Uscore soccer working with us.

These are bizarre times that no one has ever lived through before.  We all will have interesting stories to tell regarding this years from now.  I am a cup half full guy and even though there is a lot of pain and stress with everyone’s job, family. There is going to be some good that comes out in the future from this. Personally I was surprised how China makes most of our drugs, I find that ridiculous.  This will pass. We will be better & learn.  No one wants our kids to deal with this when they become moms and dads.     

In regards to the park we have plenty of toilet paper, purell, no germ could survive what we did in the bathrooms, and everything here has been cleaned (bleachers benches). Alex and Oscar have done a fantastic job on site.  Also since no one has been here the grass is now a thick jungle ready for games. We hope to get to use the rye more before the Bermuda starts coming in.

We realize youth sports is a small part of life in America.  However, for the kids playing it is a special part of their childhood and time with friends & family.  Parents also make lots of friend connections from youth sports.  They learn a lot about themselves and teamwork on a field. You can tell them we have a plan and they will play again soon!

Coaches we like communicating with you first so you are aware we are ready when we get the OK.  Please relay this to your teams.

Any questions feel free to contact me either by email or cell.  

Thank you

   Schedule sync -  There are 3 ways parents can view the schedule and their field locations.  A)  go to "Standings" tab and click their team name  B) go to the "Calendar" tab and select the date and see everything going on at the park that day   C) subscribe to your team.    Schedule Sync is where you can select your team name and click subscribe - and you are done.  All your team info will be sent to Outlook, any calendar program, or your phone.  This is an excellent way you can keep up with the team throughout the year.  Anything that changes on the master schedule is automatically updated on your calendar.   Go to this link http://www.thefarmleague.com/baseball/schedule-scores/ and in 2 clicks all games are on your device.   This is a very cool ap and you will like it.


    Twitter and Facebook - We use these aps to get information out quickly.   We will post rain outs, game info, and photos of teams here.  With twitter, set it up where the tweet is sent to your phone as a text. This way you will know immediately of a status change to the games.  EX: You are on a sales call in the galleria and the weather is fine there. However, raining in Klein.  You will get a tweet about the game.  This is a very fast mass texting system we use.   Facebook is meant for the kids and parents to use to highlight their players accomplishments.  Pass along any info and we will get it up.    I have attached a twitter how to guide which makes it very easy to create an account. Please make sure you have the TFL tweets go to your cell phone as a text.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Farm-League/292643040754221 ////  https://twitter.com/Thefarmleague
