15U Cavalry Travel Team Tryouts

Babe Ruth Families,


Tryouts for GMBL's 15U Cavalry Travel team will be held this Wednesday, August 16st at 6:30 pm on GMBL Field 6.  The 15U Cavalry travel team will participate in the NVTBL travel league as well as participating in the Dog Days (Labor Day weekend) and Halloween Havoc (Halloween weekend) tournaments at GMBL.  This will entail playing single games or double headers on Sundays at the GMBL fields or at fields around Northern Virginia/Maryland.  There will be additional costs (beyond the normal GMBL registration fee) associated with competing on this team, those include:  tournament entry fees, NVTBL registration and game fees, uniforms, team equipment and travel expenses.


The NVTBL travel season begins Sept. 5th and concludes on Nov. 5th. 
 
Anyone trying out for the team should be committed to being available for the Sunday NVTBL games, Sunday practices and the GMBL tournaments.  Tryouts are open to any players registered to play at GMBL for the fall season whose birthday falls between 05/01/2002 and 04/30/2003.  Please email me and let me know if you plan to tryout for the team.  If you have any questions about the tryouts or the team, please feel free to contact me.
 

Thank you,
BJ Sullins

Evaluations For Softball

GMBL Softball Families,

Our Fall Evaluations are coming up for Softball. As you know we use these evaluations to try and make the teams as even as possible.  Please see the dates and times below. 

Check-in – Please check-in for your evaluation near the snack bar.  Your child will be provided a number that will be used during the evaluation.

Equipment Needed – Your child will need their glove, helmet and bat as we will be evaluating hitting and fielding. If your player doesn't have the needed equipment, she can borrow a fellow players. 

Attendance – If your child will miss the evaluation, they will still be placed on a team as long as their registration is paid or you have made arrangements to pay the registration. If you have further questions, please contact the commissioner of your division.  The commissioner can be found under Board Members on the website. 

Updates – The best way to stay up to date with changes, cancellations, etc is to visit our website or follow us on Facebook (GMBLBaseball) or Twitter (@GMBLBaseball).

CPR / AED Certification for Coaches

Dear GMBL League Coaches,

GMBL has been offered an amazing opportunity to share with you reduced cost CPR/AED training through Florian CPR, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide low-cost CPR certification to Manassas area volunteers.  The organization was founded this July when our own GMBL Senior Babe Ruth League Member, Steven Smith, was saved by teammate, Paul Dow, after a freak accident during baseball practice as the team prepared for their Southeast Regional appearance.  Their story made Local, State, National and International news.   If you have not heard about the miracle, you can find the story link below as published by Babe Ruth Headquarters and local Inside NOVA:

Babe Ruth HQs Article

Inside NOVA Article

GMBL strongly encourages all league members to be CPR/AED certified as volunteers.  Do you want to Learn CPR?  Now is your chance! Florian CPR wants to help you. They will certify you in the life saving skills of CPR and the proper use of the AED for just $21.

Go to www.savewithcpr.org to learn more about them, sign up for a class or donate

All instructors and staff are volunteers.  The $21 pays for equipment, instructional supplies and your certification with the National Safety Council.  CPR and AED training saves lives.  Simply select the $21 – Volunteer Coach Pay for Yourself Option on the Class Sign-In, identify yourself as a GMBL Coach/Volunteer.  

Sign up today!  You never know when you may be able to save a life tomorrow!

Thanks,

Your GMBL Board of Directors
