Hello 6/7th Grade KMS Baseball Parents,
My name is Kevin Costigan and I am the Baseball Coach this year for the 6/7th grade KMS team. I am sorry that I haven't sent out a note earlier but I'm new and still sorting everything out.
For those of you who don't know me, I have been an executive board member for Tempe South Little League for 28 years and I have coached my own kids on several club teams up to the 16U level. I'm excited by this opportunity to coach at my neighborhood school and I recognize many players on the team who have been in the TSLL program over the years. Mike Rowley will be assisting me this season. Mike's son is on the team and Mike has many years of baseball coaching experience. I am happy that he has made himself available to help this season.
I have sent this note to the email addresses forwarded to me by the school. If you would like me to include additional e-mail addresses in the future, please let me know.
The uniforms are available for pick-up when you pay the participation fee at the office. Please pay the fee this week. Our first game is Monday next week and we need the fees paid prior to your son's participation in the game. The players should all wear white pants for the games. Socks and belts should match the team's shirt color - green.
Safety is important this year and the players will be required to wear masks while they are in the dugout. Please insure that they have a mask available for games.
Our goals this year are to have fun, improve every day and be competitive. I have told the boys that playing time will be dependent on their attitude, game awareness and skill levels. We have 13 players on the roster and we may not be able to get every player into every game. Please know that if your son puts in the effort, he will have opportunities to play.
The weather is getting hot and you may want to consider providing a larger water bottle for your son. Some players only have 20 ounce containers and that may not be adequate for two hours in the sun.
I have attached the games schedule to this email and the games begin at 4:15. As mentioned earlier, our first game is Monday. For away games, your son will be transported to the games on a school bus. You will need to bring your son home after away games. There is no return bus ride.
Practices are generally 2:50 - 4:50pm, except on early release days, 1:50 - 3:50pm. The practice schedule is attached. Please be prompt when picking up your son as I have other commitments that I need to attend after practice.
I look forward to the season. If you have questions, feel free to e-mail or call me. email@example.com 602-809-9959
I'll see you at the field.
