OK, coaches and parents. Tomorrow is our official RGSA player draft at the Charlie McVay Memorial Softball Complex. Here is a basic run-down.
Each player will need to check-in at the concession stand before the draft begins. For the draft skills each girl will be given a number which will be pinned to her back. The number will be used by the coaches as each girl runs through the “skills”.
Here are the age division times.
Check-in is from 10:30am-10:45am
Skills are from 10:45am-11:30am
Check-in is from 11:30am-12:00pm

If you are a coach and will be drafting your entire team or just need a pickup a few players to complete your roster here is a simple spreadsheet that may help. Along the left edge are the girls’ draft numbers. As each player works through the skills you rank their abilities on a scale of 1-3 (3 being the best). You may notice the “P.-3″ column in the center of the sheet. The “P.-3″ line is the “Parent Factor” and is a -3 points. This is for those sideline coaching parents that like to bark at the girls. We don’t mind cheers but yelling and negative comments don’t help the girls so we try our best to prevent any of that. You may choose to not use this column while picking your team but for the Sluggers we try to keep those type of parents out of our bleachers.
