SBR NEWS!

OK time to do a quick update. The board is now in place (except one position -- anyone for concession stand manager?). I want to thank all the new members for stepping up and being a part of the board of directors. We have a great year ahead and now we need to get down to work. On that note we have a board meeting this Thursday. Everyone is invited to the meeting and I would like to see all the board members there. We have a large agenda to get through and limited time to do it. We need to get down to business. We are looking for members for step up and become part of a concession stand fund raising committee. If you are interested please let me know and I will put your name on the list.

Fall Ball Update. Well as the manager of the 10u team I would like to tell my girls how proud I am of them. We started the season at 0-4-1 and ended the season on a win streak and a record of 3/4/1. You girls worked hard, improved every game, and played with real heart. You each made coaching a pleasure and I cannot wait until next year! I know Coach Jim and Coach Corinne feel the same way. I also would like to congratulate the 12u Fall ball team on thier win this Saturday. I know coach Kim and Coach Mike feel the same way about you!

Field cleanup was last Saturday. I would like to thank everyone that showed up to help out. We were able to get everything that we needed to do accomplished and more. We did so well that we are scheduling a second day to go back and clear some brush. We will be having another field cleanup on November 1st from 9am until we stop. We would like to clear out more brush from areas around field A. We will need people to come down and load and unload the brush as well as cut it down. Please let me know if you would like to be part of the fun!

Thank you!

2015 Elections!

Elections will be held this Thursday. If you were a head coach or a current board member, you have a vote and we need you there to elect the next SBR Board of Directors. Elections will be held at the Somersworth Middle School Cafeteria on Thursday September 25th. Meeting will start at 6pm with the reading of the Annual Voting Procedures and opened up for any further nominations to the ballet. The voting will start at 6:30pm.

The SBR Board is still accepting nominations for all positions. Concession Stand Manager is still open and we need someone to head the concession stand, and others willing to step up and help. I would love to fill this last position with nominations before September 25th. I hope to see many of you at the meeting on Thursday night.

I just want to let everyone know that even if a position has someone nominated for it you can still put your name in for that position. I want to see the day that parents are lining up to get on to the Board of Directors. SBR is the league for your daughters and it would mean a great deal to them that you want to be a part of what they are doing. I do understand that the board may not be something you want to do, that is ok we have plenty of positions for volunteer work during the season.

I also want you to know that everyone is invited to the school this Thursday. You can meet the new (and old) board members. See what being a part of the board is all about, and even bring up concerns you may have once the new board is in place. Thank you all for a great last year, I am hoping that next year is even better!

Thank you!

Welcome back 16u Division!

SBR Girls Softball has decided not to waiver with the Dover league for the upcoming season. The 16u division (girls age 13 through 16 at the end of this year) will be playing spring softball at Malley Farm. All girls 16 years old and younger from the SBR district will register with our league this year. We are excited to have that age group back with us.

2015 Season Board Of Directors!

Thursday we will be having a meeting at the Somersworth Middle School Cafeteria to nominate candidates for board positions. The meeting will start at 6:30pm. We have a number of positions that need to be filled as we lost 5 board members this year and need to fill 5 other positions. If you have any interest, please come out and consider volunteering for the Board of Directors. It is a great way to get involved with the league.

If you are interested but cannot make the meeting please email the league and let us know. We will be taking nominations up to election night in September. I would love to have a full board going into next year as I believe it will be the best year yet. Please consider being a part of SBR Girls Softball helping to make this a great season for the girls!

Thank you!
