2016/2017 Season Practice Schedule

Directions to the New CORE Indoor Practice Facility

Important Reminders:

  • Please take ownership in your club’s facility. Keep it clean and safe for all!
  • The core is a dangerous place for siblings as there are a lot of activities going on during a practice. Please bring siblings when absolutely necessary – if they must be in the building please make sure they stay well behind the netting in the public area and are well behaved to eliminate any safety concerns. They must NEVER enter the workout area.
  • Do not enter the workout area until your designated time begins unless there is no other team practicing.
  • Players may use the facility whenever they wish as long as they do not interfere with a team practicing.  Please talk to the coach of the team practicing before entering a batting cage.
  • ALL TEAMS, COACHES AND PLAYERS, MUST LEAVE THE PRACTICE FLOOR IMMEDIATELY AT THE END OF THEIR ASSIGNED PRACTICE TIME.
  • At no time may a non-diamonds player or coach be allowed to use the core unless they are attending a special Diamond’s function.
  • Absolutely no cleats in the core and please wear clean dirt-free shoes.
  • Pitching is only allowed in the designated pitching areas or you must use a “portable pitching rubber.” Do not pitch on the turf as this rips/tears the turf. 
  • Always wear a helmet in the CORE when a bat is being swung – a helmet must be worn in the batting cages!
  • Make sure you have signed a CORE release form before entering the workout area of the CORE.
  • It is every team’s responsibility to check the restrooms and workout area prior to leaving to make sure they are clean and everything that needs to be put away is in its correct spot.
  • No real softballs can be used in the new core unless you are in a batting cage. Only softies, wiffles, and dense rubber balls may be used on the open turf/field.
  • Machine balls need to stay with the cage they are in at all times. Don’t mix them please as we try to keep an equal number of balls in each cage.
  • To help protect the facility please when warming up throw east and west.
  • Make sure that all lights are off when leaving.
  • DO NOT TOUCH THE THERMOSTATS-they are set at 53 degrees year round so have your players dress accordingly!
  • For additional team practice times please contact Sandy – You cannot switch your practice times or add a pitcher/catcher practices without prior approval.
  • Coaches need to communicate with each other as which side of the building and which batting cage they will be using during their designated practice times.
  • When in doubt – COMMON COURTESY will go a long way!  Ask questions – do not make assumptions!

New practice schedules reset October 1st and run to September 30th of the following year.
