Volunteers - 
There was some frustration voiced last night from the 6:30pm group that we didn't have enough volunteers.  RYBA is a volunteer organization that relies on parent volunteers: to be board members, to run this house program (I do not get paid in anyway to do this), to help with tryouts, to coach.  Going into tryouts yesterday afternoon, we were short 6 volunteers overall.  We needed 5 volunteers alone for the infield station.  For the 6:30 group, we had 3 kids (ages 11, 10, and 8) on the field helping the 2 adults running the station.  The first thing that was cut due to lack of volunteers was the 2nd hitting station.  (A big Thank You to the parent that did step up and help us get the 2nd hitting station running!)  We did the best we could with the resources we had.  If anyone would like to be part of the solution and volunteer to help us with tryouts on Monday, that is an email I would welcome!  

Speaking of volunteers, based on current numbers, we are looking at approximately 10 teams between majors and minors.  There are currently only 5 people signed up to be a head coach for grades 6/7.  The season will not start on 05/20 if we do not have enough coaching volunteers.  Please consider volunteering to coach your child's team.
