Much discussion was had about how to get teams to play in areas where there is no youth slowpitch now. Pierre is in need of more diamonds, which is being worked on now, Aberdeen has only one girls team at this time. Mitchell is beginning to have more interest in the slowpitch program and we will be working with them for next year’s season.
Background checks are mandatory for any bench personnel, along with one coach MUST be ACE certified.
A new area commissioner was appointed for the Huron and surrounding area. We welcome Amber Lonas to our board and look forward to working with her.
