My name is Bryan Grosnick. I'll be helping coach the Orioles (Machine Pitch division) this year, along with Jason Chapman, Greg Kuhr, Garrett Long, and Ryan Millea. We're looking forward to meeting everyone, learning more about baseball, and–most importantly–having a lot of fun. If you're interested in helping out the coaches this year, please don't hesitate to let us know -- the more the merrier!
If you access the Avon Little League website, you'll be able to see our schedule. Our first practice is Saturday, April 10 at 1:00pm at Sperry #3. I've started scheduling some practices and all the games are up on the site. Provided the weather is good, we'll stick to this schedule, and I'll finish setting up our May/June practices this week. We'll reschedule as needed based on rain dates.
Due to COVID, there are a few extra rules that we're required to follow this year. Some of the basics are:
1. When not on the field kids should keep distance between one another and wear a mask.
2. Kids are encouraged to bring their own helmet (with facemask) and bat if possible and keep that for their own personal use. (We will have team equipment for those who need it.)
3. Parents and spectators are asked to spread out and maintain safe distancing while also wearing masks. (This is important in order for the town to allow us to have a season).
Please let us know if you have any questions. With many kids not having played in over a year, we're going to work hard to make practice fun for everyone -- no matter how familiar the kids are with the game. Let's have a great season!
