5 DIAMONDS/STIKS ACADEMY ROOKIE ELITE LEAGUE
The past few weeks have undoubtedly provided more questions than answers pertaining to virtually all aspects of our day to day lives, and our league calendar has been no exception.
凯发体育网址During this unprecedented time, now more than ever, you are looking for a lens into the future. This email will give you a definitive road map that you can begin to plan around as we move back towards normalcy.
凯发体育网址Below you will find our 5 Diamonds complex update on what we have learned over the last few weeks, what we are doing with that information, and what we need from you.
What We’ve Learned
-The newest order has restrictions in place until May 26th.
凯发体育网址 -We are comfortable betting on the possibility that we will have baseball by mid June.
What We Are Doing About It
Our team has worked tirelessly to recreate our league calendar. We had two primary goals throughout this process:
-Registration has been slow with concerns over the virus. We will begin recruiting players once again once it looks like we are close to being able to get on the field again.
-Offer families a plan that you can confidently commit to.
凯发体育网址 -Make preparations at the facilities being used to ensure player safety once we come out of this
凯发体育网址Currently, we will be moving the start of league to June 8 . We will begin practicing as well as starting up clinics hopefully that week (more details to follow as we get more information). With the hope of starting games the week of 6/21. That would have us ending 8/14 and have the year ending tournament 8/15-16. If we can move that whole time frame up with improving conditions we will do so at that time.

凯发体育网址Our goal for this league is to enhance younger aged children’s baseball experience and get them ready for elite travel baseball. We will accomplish this through preseason and in season clinics that we will limit to 50 players per clinic with the help of the STiKS Academy. We will also have all our coach’s teach the same skills and practice drills that will be taught to them in a preseason coach’s clinic. Players will have the ability to learn at an accelerated pace due to 1-2 practices per week as well as the clinics and with the ability to play ALL games because we will move games indoors if weather becomes a factor. Meaning you will get more for your money than any other program out there today. We will also be the ONLY program in the area to have the players experience playing under the lights which is a unique experience that all will love. With our connection with STiKS Academy players will have a leg up on other players coming from other programs if interested in continuing in travel baseball. ALL in ALL we believe we can offer a better overall experience and teach more to your player than elsewhere. For the last 8 years we have lead the area in advancing the game more than any other.
