Good evening, Norchester families. We appreciate your patience as we worked through the details associated with our Fall-Ball offerings. Registration will be opened on the Norchester website this evening. We will be fielding three teams at the Junior Level. Those teams are 16U (Jr. Legion), 15U, and 14U (which includes any rising 13 year olds. We do not offer a program at the Senior level as coach Harrison plays a travel schedule in the fall with invited players. Players born in the following years are eligible to play for us in the fall (and then again in the spring):
2006, 2005, 2004, and 2003
Timeline and Information:
Registration: Will open tonight and close on Sunday, August 26th at midnight
Evaluations: There will be a one-night evaluation to be held on Wednesday evening, August 29th at 6:00 at the OJR High School field. This evaluation will be used to assign players to one of the three teams.
Cost: As with the past, the cost will be $50.00 for the Fall. Please note that each team will be looking to enter some tournaments. They will charge per player for those tournaments based on the registration cost.
Dates: All activities will take place on the weekends during September and October. In addition to tournament play, there may be other games scheduled for weekends and/or practices held with the goal of player development and, in particular for our rising players from Little League, getting them accostomed to the "big field".
Location: We are exploring our options here. We are hoping to bring the West-Mont field back around so it is playable. We will also be looking in to the Manatawny Park fields in Pottstown as well as Sundstrom Field.
Please spread the word as registration is only open this week and only those that played for us in the Spring are receiving this email communication.
Congratulations to the 2018 Jr. Legion Big Dawgs! With an 11-1 victory over Phoenixville on Saturday, July 14th, the boys became Twin County League Champions. They will host the Regional Tournament from July 21st-25th at OJR. Congrats to all the coaches and players.
For your advanced planning, please be advised that we will be making a slight change to how we register for our Summer Norchester programs. In the past, registration took place in February and March. We will be moving spring registration to the fall beginning in fall of 2018. Anyone wishing to play for Norchester in Summer of 2019 will need to register this fall. Additionally, only those that are registered for Norchester's Summer 2019 program will be permitted to play Fall 'Ball for Norchester and participate in our winter (indoor) workouts. We are also discussing moving our tryouts for our summer teams to the Fall. This will allow us to have a better idea of our numbers well ahead of the season. It will also (hopefully) permit us a bit more time to secure coaches for our teams. Finally, it will ensure that those participating for our Fall teams and in our Winter workouts are indeed committed to playing for Norchester.
