This week
by posted 05/03/2021

Hi, everyone. This is a busy week for the Panthers! We have games tomorrow and Wednesday at 6:00 and pictures Thursday at 8:00. 

Tomorrow: For those available to come early, Kim and I will be at the field by 5:00. We'll have the girls do some batting and practice sliding on a mat. Stealing and sliding are important in 12U, and we want the girls to feel comfortable. If you have time before tomorrow, Google or YouTube sliding videos. This one is a little long, but good. No worries if your daughter can't make it there early. 

Thursday: Our time slot for pictures is 8:00. Please arrive by 7:45 to fill out an order form.

First game - Wednesday night
by posted 04/26/2021

Hi everyone. 

A few people have asked if we have a game tomorrow night. We do not. We originally had one scheduled, but then some games were shuffled around. Our first game is this Wednesday, April 28, at 6:00 on field 3. Please have the girls to the field by 5:30.

You can find our schedule on the GAGSA website and in the SportsSignUp Play app. (It used to be called the SI Play app, and I've used it in the past with GAGSA teams. I just had to log out and back in to see the Panthers.) Please let us know if you have any questions.
