Player Packet

Player packet as PDF

 

Parents,

In case you lose or need another copy of player packet hand out, please see .pdf attachment.

File contains: Welcome letter, Waiver, Conduct agreement, Uniform & Clothing order form, schedules, sample budget and sponsorship forms.

Please note: we need the signed Waivers and Conduct Agreement along with your child's birth certificate ASAP.  You can not play or be on site without these items on file with the Vipers.  Once everything has been submitted to Core Concepts, not just the head coach,  your child will be added to the roster and will be eligible to play.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE KIDS AND THEIR FUTURE NOT THE COACHES AND WHAT THEY DID NOT ACCOMPLISH AS A KID. LETS GIVE OUR BEST TO THESE KIDS AND DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO SET AN EXAMPLE OF GENTLEMEN SPORTSMANSHIP AND CHARACTER.  LETS HOPE PRAY AND TEACH OUR KIDS IN A MANNER THAT HELPS THEM GO FURTHER FASTER AND BETTER THAN WE EVER DID OR COULD

  • Which team does my son need to play on?
    The season starts on August 1st and ends July 31st the following year. The cut off date for all age groups is May 1st of the season. For the season starting August 1 2013, May 1st 2014 is the cutoff date. The easiest way to explain it is your son's age on May 1st determines what team he should play on. If he will be 10 on May 2nd 2013 then he would play on the 10u team for the next year

  • When does the season end?
    Vipers break our schedule down into 2 seasons. Spring season is March to July (Summer World Series) and Fall is Mid-August to December 1st (or Winter World Series). We take off during December and January and a month in Summer (mid-July to Mid-August). But your team may do things differently as they choose.

  • How is our schedule determined?
    Each team is responsible for all their activities, guided by their head coach. In most situtations, each team will look at tournaments that they can play in and decide as a family when and where. We hope and encourage that as many Vipers teams play together in same tournament as possbile to encourage the family and supportive atmosphere.

  • What skill level does my son need to have?
    At lower age groups, such as 8 through 11u, your son needs to be able to understand the speed of the game and that this is a whole level higher than rec ball. If your son is 9, it is helpful to consider if he can play well with 10 years olds and not fall behind. If so, then maybe he is ready for 9u travel. If your son is 12 and up he needs to be able to bat at a minimum 250 to 300, see a pitch at 60mph and handle the speed of game. Otherwise, you need to speak with the coach about him being a developmental player who will get experience but may sit as a sub on Sunday. (Saturday play determines where team is seeded on Sunday and we play all if we can).

  • Why are the coaches always taking positive and smiling?
    Because that's the way it should be done! Kids are fun to work with and worth the work.

  • What kind of parent do we NOT want?
    You know "that guy" (or that mom)... the ones who yell at their player for making a mistake. Who can not relax and stresses everyone else out. The ones who come on the field and argue with umpires (we see it at every level including the local middle school). Well "that guy/mom" is what we don't want. If you love to cheer and be passionate and get into the game positively...great! Be encouraging, be a parent, but don't be "that guy/mom".

  • How much does it cost?
    Realistically, it costs about $500 to $700 for a kid to play one season of travel ball. That includes fields, insurance, equipment (we go through hundreds of balls a season), tournaments and uniforms. We do everything we can to keep the per family cost down by looking for sponsors and donations. We also do at least one big fundraiser each season.
