CV Baseball Spirit Wear & Fundraiser Thank You / Update 2019-05-09

Here is your reminder that our Spirit Wear Store will be closing soon so make sure you check out the gear that is available at the Conestoga Valley Baseball Spirit Wear Store.  The store closes on May 12th.  There are some great products to show off your CV pride at baseball games and events.

Here is the link to check out all the offerings: http://davcoadvertising.tuosystems.com/stores/cvbucks2019.

We also want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for your efforts with the Fundraiser.  We're still compiling the numbers, but we sold A LOT of sandwiches that should lead too good profits to cover the expenses of the program.  This past year we refurbished the fields at Witmer and bought a lot of new equipment.  The funds above registration fees are how we cover these expenses.  THANK YOU!

Please plan to have your player there around 8.45a to meet up with your team along the 1st Base line near the outfield entrance to the Witmer 1 Field. We’ll begin promptly at 9a. Please don’t park in the front of the church as it is reserved for WHMC. Additional parking can be found at Locust Grove Mennonite School across the street. We’ll have a great Opening Ceremony and then get you off to games starting at 10a.

Fundraiser

This year, as in past years, CV Baseball will be selling R&K Subs and Sandwiches! We will have a full month to sell and help raise funds for the CV Baseball.  The fundraiser is a HUGE part in covering the expenses of the program so we can keep registration fees low.   Please be sure to have your orders AND money turned in to Andrea Mull by May 5th at 5 pm (this is a Sunday). I will be at Witmer fields until 7:30p on May 2nd if you wish to turn everything in then, otherwise, please make arrangements. Checks can be made out to CVBA. Please have all totals written on your sheets, and the money along with it in an envelope. This will help us to stay organized. Please also put your contact phone number and your child's name and team on the form.  Click HERE for the sub form.

Delivery will be on May 15th. You may pick up your subs/sandwiches starting at 6.30p, unless other arrangements have been made. We are looking for volunteers to help sort sandwiches (many hands makes for lighter work!). If you can help, or if you need special arrangements for pick up, please email Andrea at ALD244@psu.edu

2019 Spring CV Baseball Updates / Update 2019-03-08

It's hard to believe we're just a few short weeks from the start of our 2019 Spring Baseball Season.  This email is to provide you with some key information for this upcoming season.

Teams

Travel teams have all been announced.  10U Rec, Rookies, and Tee Ball teams are being assembled.  We need coaches for 10U Rec.  Please reach out to us if you're interested in coaching.

We would like to get teams announced in the next week or so.

Spring Training / Field Day / Opening Day

The weather will play a large part of how soon we'll be on the fields.  Your coach will be communicating the schedules and locations for practices once they are determined.  Spring training will begin no later than the last week of March, but may start sooner for our travel/older teams.

Field Day will be Saturday, March 23rd at 8a.  We will announce where to go once we get closer to that date.  Many hands make for light work.  If you can give an hour, we'll take it.  We're thinking through ways to make it as efficient as possible.  We're also excited about some improvements we're making to the Witmer complex for our 10U players.

Conestoga Valley Baseball will be holding Opening Day on April 27th at 9a at the Witmer Heights Mennonite Church Fields.  Even though games in the LCYBL will have started, this Opening Day event is for the whole program.
