Have a safe Halloween – trick or treat
Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the family and friends of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. We urge all Nationals to display our Canadian pride and spirit with the display of the traditional poppy from now through Remembrance Day. Thank you to everyone who represent and protect our citizens on a daily basis.
Current MLB player and Chair of the 2014/15 North London Nationals Coaches Selection Committee Jamie Romak is pleased to announce the first round of Head Coaches. On behalf of Jamie we are thrilled to report the following appointments:
Minor Rookie – Coach Sean Jeffries
Rookie – Coach Patrick Blain
Minor Mosquito – Coach Shawn DesRoches
Mosquito – Coach Anthony Gatt
Minor Peewee – Coaches Mike Marquis & Gregg Sweeney
North President Jeff Scott reports that he is thrilled with the selections that the Committee put forward. These appointments are the first steps in what will most likely be one of the most exciting and rewarding seasons for Nationals baseball. The continued improvement in our program, the partnership with Centrefield Sports for Coach Development for ALL of our coaches from JR T ball through to Senior Bats is a clear indication that the association is dedicated to continued registration growth as well as providing the best available instruction for our Coaches which will relate to an improved positive experience for our players. There are many more exciting developments in process and we anticipate the second round of Coach appointments in the very near future.
Ho ho ho !! While hard to believe it will soon be that time of year when the weather turns and the countdown begins to the holidays. Last year we participated in the London Santa Claus Parade and are considering doing it again this year. We participate as a walking group and we need to know if you would like to be a part of this fun event. Please email Sean Jeffries who is the lead Elf for this project at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Last year parade members were picked up by bus from the North London diamonds, delivered to our parade entry spot, picked up at the end of the route and returned safe and sound to their vehicles backat the North diamonds. We look forward to the largest group possible, please email Sean today.
The first segment of our competitive Coach interviews will take place this week for our minor rookie to major peewee divisions. Indoor training sessions are tentatively set to start the first week of November. Stay tuned for announcements of Coaches as well as developments for minor bantam through to junior programming.
