Multiple Teams · This Week in Crestwood Baseball: Week of March 9th


Practice:

Our practice schedule and game schedules are available on Google Calendar. Weather looks promising this week, players should prepare accordingly to be outside everyday. We also have our 1st scrimmages on Saturday with V @ Twinsburg & JV Home, both 10AM. By the end of the week we will let players know what team they will be scrimmaging with. Here is our practice schedule:

Snap! Raise Fundraiser Deadlines:
Email went out Friday and players were given a sheet to help them get an idea for what emails they should be obtaining. Monday I will be checking their email list and on Wednesday Snap! Raise’s Coordinator will be coming to setup our page from 3:00-3:30 and shoot a short video of the players for the pages and then the campaign lasts 28 days. It is similar to Go Fund Me, we will be sending out a message from team along with video asking people to donate. We will also be sharing our page on our District Athletic Website, Our Website and Social Media Accounts. Players should bring the 20 emails on the notes app on their phone.
Here is an example Canton Central Catholic Baseball is currently running.

Grade Checks:

We had our first grade checks and had a combined 10 D’s and 10 F’s. The marking period ends on Friday, March 20th and players must have a 1.50 GPA and pass 5 classes (gym counts only as 1/2 course), for thoseplayers this serves as their warning. We will have another grade check this week due on Friday again. Those in jeopardy of failing will report to practice but work on their grades the week of March 16th.

NATR/Fundraising Meeting:

We are down to the final two weeks of preparation for the NATR. We will have another meeting to discuss planning it on Tuesday, March 10th 7:30PM Jake’s Eats for those who wish to help. Thanks to all who have been attending, we have been making huge progress but still have a ways to go. Attached is a letter about our group.

Each family is expected to donate a basket that will be raffled off. Here is a link to sign-up for which basket idea you will bring: 2020 Crestwood NATR Basket Sign-Up

We currently have 77/200 tickets confirmed, 62/100 horses sponsored, and 11/11 races sponsored. 2020 NATR Spreadsheet

Team Meals:

Our first team meal was a success thanks to Cheryl Bascombe, Peggy Rowe, Tracy Shenkel, Jenny Dustman and Kim & Ken Plechaty for all their help that day and everyone else who helped with donations. We will look to hold another one within the next two weeks.

Baseball Belts, Socks and Pants:

These need to be purchased by families if they have already not done do. We wear red belts, red socks and solid white pants (no color line down leg) for both JV and Varsity.

Team Spirit Wear:

These arrived this week and we will be handing out hats and game day shirts this week, please make out checks out to CASB for following amounts below by Friday, April 10th. We did not get new hats this season, that is why 1st Year Players costs are higher.

Catching Equipment Clarification:

If your son is a catcher the chest protector equipment is no longer compliant and will need a new set that is NOCSAE certified. Every piece of equipment must be NOCSAE certified, some helmets and shin guards are already but the old chest protectors most likely are not. CASB has agreed to purchase two sets for the program for players to use this spring.
