 YOUTH BASEBALL CLINIC

Saturdays: Nov. 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th

 

Fall ball has just ended and kids now have some down time to work on their skills off the field. For a player to be at maximum preparation for the spring season, attending winter training or clinics is so very important.

North Seattle Baseball  in conjunction with North Seattle Batting Cages have prepared a clinic to teach various age level players (our youth) the fundamentals of baseball as well as advanced material related to on and off the field.

Held at North Seattle Batting Cage, we are pleased to offer an intensive, action packed  2 hour 4 day clinic for youth 8-10 and 11-13 years old.

We will be helping each participant to better understand the game both mentally and physically. Joining us at this clinic will also allow players to further develop individual skills through instruction, individual and multi-player drills.

This is a great opportunity to get personal instruction at a very affordable cost. Our clinic has a low player to instructor ratio. This means each player will receive a lot of personal attention.

  • This is a great opportunity to have real pros work with the players.
  • We are pleased to have Cordell Greene to lead a crew of instructors. Cordell played for the University of Washington, Lewis-Clark State and the Milwaukee Brewers.
  • Steve Greene, drafted by the Cubs in 17th round and the Brewers 12th round out of Bellevue College, will assist Cordell. Some local High School state championship players will also support our lead instructors.
  • This clinic will help players in the most important aspects of the game. The player’s confidence on the field is driven by their learning experiences. 
  • Our instructors have a structured environment to better players in all aspects of the game.
  • After attending the clinic, each player will go home with drills and understand what they can do at home to continue to prepare for spring.

2 hour Sessions for 4 weeks  $289.00

2015 NSB Board of Directors

Reminder: NSB Annual Meeting October 13, 2014 at 7:00 at the NSB Batting Cage Facility

North Seattle PONY Baseball exists to provide exceptional experiences in youth baseball, sportsmanship, and teamwork that will help young people grow into healthier and happier adults. The quality of our programs and your child’s experience rely on the foundation of our organization: a strong volunteer program, and an effective Board of Directors.  

Over the past several years we have experienced an increase in player count and a correlative uptick in team-level volunteer interest and participation. Last year we had more interested, qualified, and experienced coaches than we had teams, and in 2015 we expect the league to grow yet again. Looking ahead, we’re confident that we can fill coaching roles from ages 4 through 19, but we have a need for Board of Director participation from qualified, interested, and committed volunteers.

The NSB Board of Directors meets once a month for approximately 1-2 hours, and is simply tasked with keeping the league running effectively and efficiently, and with stewardship for the needs of our players, parents, and community members.

The strength of our Board has always been the foundation of our organization, and as a result of a long history of commitment, sound planning and execution, and success, the annual program is largely ‘automated’. We do many of the same things at the same time each year, and the calendar and processes are codified and turnkey. In short, the heavy lifting is largely done, and at this stage of our league maturity, our Board has the luxury of being focused on continuous improvement and 'what else'?

Being a Board Member is more about making things better, looking for opportunities to improve programs, optimize processes, and basically insure that the baseball season is fun and fulfilling, and that the league is sustainable. Many of our current serving Board Members have volunteered for years, and in some cases, for over a decade. With the new season around the corner, it’s time for new ideas, new energy, and new Board Members.

The Board is actively recruiting NSB parents and other qualified community members who love the game of baseball, are committed to our NSB community and ideals, and can dedicate an evening a month to the betterment of North Seattle PONY Baseball. You may not think of yourself as a “Board” person, but if you have a child who has benefited from NSB programs and you’re the type to grab a rake when the field is wet, keep the scorebook in a pinch, or help clean up the dugout after the game, you absolutely have what it takes, and we’d love to have your commitment.

The benefits of volunteering as a Board Member are endless. One of the primary advantages our Board members recognize early in their service is the too-rare tendency for their social lives to parallel and overlap with those of their children. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground with shared interests and goals, and that is a great thing. Further, you’ll inform and drive the innovation and decision-making processes for the league, while modeling the value and power of community involvement for your kids. Finally, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to spend quality time with like-minded NSB families on and off the fields in a fun-filled environment. 

No experience is required to become a Board Member. Board roles require little or no training, and the best Board Members are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game and new and better ideas to the league simply by being themselves.

Many of you have students who are required to perform 60 hours of volunteer service each academic year. We’re asking for 24 to 30 from you as an NSB Board Member, so please, sign up, show up, dig in, and show them how it’s done!

Please send an email (include your name and contact number) to with BOD INTEREST in the subject line if you’re interested in serving on the NSB Board of Directors, or attend the Annual Meeting on October 13 at 7:00 at the NSB Batting Cages. All we ask from you is a one-year commitment, and your energy, ideas, and enthusiasm.

Thank you in advance for helping make North Seattle PONY Baseball an exceptional experience for all of our players and families. Let's work together to make 2015 our best season ever!
