Academy Updates


Sports Zone May Updates

I am sure everyone is ready to get outside and play games. Thank you to all who are sending me practice updates and videos on the progress of your kids over the last 7 weeks. We are all really looking forward to playing again and seeing the kids. When we do start up (which will be soon) we will try to play as many games as possible. Depending on if tourneys get cancelled, we may have to reschedule events to a different date or location. As of now, very few tournaments have actually cancelled summer events. Our schedule, starting Memorial weekend through the summer, are still on. I’ll keep you updated on any changes to that. We are planning on a very busy Summer and Fall season. Therefore, please make sure everyone is staying in shape physically and athletically. If you have been doing very little or don’t have the equipment to do much – please take at least a half hour each day and go outside and run sprints in the street. Once we get the go ahead, we will be playing a lot. We want everyone to be physically ready to play once we get the green light. Netflix and Video games don’t get you in shape although they are fun and addictive! Baseball/Softball skills we can get back sooner than we can getting our bodies back in shape. It looks like many states will possibly be playing ball before NYS opens up. Therefore, we may have to schedule or update tourneys to where we can play. Hopefully, we will know more May 15th.

You will be getting more regular communication as we approach June. Here are a couple notes of interest:

1) Please make sure you are the booking the hotels that need to be booked. We can alway cancel them.

2) Rainbow lettering will be setting up a link to purchase custom Sports Zone face mask. They are really cool. Ill tweet out a picture once they send the final version over to me. It has the players name and number on them. SZ twitter is @sportszoneacad. Our twitter is also linked to our website so you can view there. This Face Mask link should be set up for this weekend. We will message everyone once the store is available.

3) Kristin will be sending you another message of a day/time to pick up all your Sports Zone gear you ordered for this spring. All pickups will be next week. We will spread it out so all the teams do not show up at 481 at the same time/day.

4) If you go to our website you will see a bunch of updates to the actual site. We have a lot more to update and change. Eddie Gray has been doing a great job with some of the changes to the website already.

5) We have made and are making a few changes at 481 that will make our practices, indoor leagues and group trainings better. I’ll keep you updated on our progress.
