All Play and No Work

Now that ball season is approaching fast, my commitments as Director of Softball have increased. I had clinics over the weekend that I had to attend as well as drafts for a couple of the age groups. Tonight is the draft for the girls Majors. the level that Speedy E. plays. My wife is one of the managers but cannot make the draft tonight so I get to do it in her place. I'm not sure if there is a conflict of interest involved but someone would have to do it for her anyway. I am going to try and get a free pick for her team because all of the other teams have multiple coaches with kids on the team while Mrs. PE's assistant doesn't have a child on the team. We should be able to pick first in my opionion. We'll see what happens.

I'm also looking to find coaches for next year's traveling teams at 10U and 12U. I hope we can find someone to step up and run a team. There are plenty of kids that want to play so all we need is someone to take over the program. I will coach the 12U team if we don't find someone but that isn't really my first choice. I think we have someone already but I need to confirm before doing cartwheels. The 10U team will be a little harder but I'm sure some parent will step up and do the job. We have someone who does all the scheduling so all they need to do is coach.

So no Skills for me tonight and no Riverchasers on Thursday more than likely. We shall see.
