Practices

Whether we are inside or outside, you will need to wear long sleeves (unless told otherwise) and either baseball pants or something similar.  If we are outside, you’ll also want to have some warmer clothes available like sweats and a sweatshirt. Always bring 2 pairs of running shoes (one for indoor, one for outdoor-that can get dirty) and a pair of baseball spikes.  A Pius X baseball cap should also be worn both inside and outside.  We will go outside every day if it is at all possible, so BE PREPARED FOR ALL TYPES OF WEATHER!  Put your name on everything!  Listen to the daily announcements or check the message board for practice times and general information. If we’re outside, we most often will practice right after school till 645 or so. If we have to practice inside, we sometimes will practice right after school, other times we won’t start till later.

Make sure your shoes are clean BEFORE you take them in the school or locker room.  DO NOT clean them off in the building.  Keep the lockers, locker room, and restrooms clean.

If you are going to be late or absent for practice, notify Coach Charf PERSONALLY!  DO NOT send word with someone else or assume that we KNOW that you were gone or absent that day.  If you can not locate Coach Charf, find Coach Hain or Coach Book, or leave a note in the high school office by 3:00.

YOU WILL BE EVALUATED ON AND PLAYING TIME WILL BE DETERMINED BY:

- Arm strength, accuracy, and throwing mechanics

- Fielding ability and mechanics

- Footspeed and endurance

- Bat speed and contact, as well as mechanics

- Bunting ability as well as mechanics

- Attendance, including tardies

- Attitude

- Team player

- Level of work

- Academic issues

- Conduct on and off the field

- Overall character

-COACHABILITY: with such things as the following being considered: following directions, following rules and regulations on and off the field, safety and care or equipment and facilities, hustle, knowledge of the game and leadership qualities, ability to make adjustments

-Level of work put in:  just because you are bigger, faster, stronger, “better” than another person at your position doesn’t mean you will play.  YOU MUST WORK TO EARN A SPOT

    *more times than not, we practice all together as a TEAM. This provides for the best evaluation and maximizing the coaches
