HLL wanted to communicate some important dates to remember as we start the 2019 season.
For Minors and Majors players, we will have assessments on Tuesday, March 5 at JBT field house located next to In the Net. The JBT field house is connected to the Klick Lewis arena. Assessments will run from 6 pm to 8 pm and we encourage your child to attend if possible. This allows the coaches at these levels to assess skill levels before entering the player draft and helps us keep all teams competitive. In addition, we will have a table set up to do uniform sizing that night.
For Colts level players we have a Colts Clinic set up for Saturday, March 9 starting at 10:00 am. Despite today's weather, we're planning for the clinic to be held outside at the North/South/Memorial field complex. In case of inclement weather we will move the clinic into the gym at the ECC if necessary. We will also conduct uniform sizing, player assessment and skills development at this event.
While we encourage all players to attend the league appropriate assessment please be assured that your child will be assigned or drafted to a team regardless of their participation in the assessment/clinic.
Practices will start for Minors and Majors teams the week of March 11. Practices for t-ball and Colts will start later in March.
Opening Day for HLL is scheduled for Friday, April 5, Minors and Majors teams will start playing games at that point. For t-ball and Colts, games will start a few weeks after this date. But everyone is encouraged to attend opening day events on April 5.
If you have any questions please let us know.
