We are excited to announce that the Jr. Chargers Baseball Club will be expanding in 2020 as we will be combining with the Jr. Chargers Softball program. Our Jr. Chargers Baseball Board met last month and unanimously agreed that it was the right time to expand and help grow the youth community select softball program for the Hamilton School District. This is great news as it provides mutual benefits for both organizations and the participating families.
The Jr. Chargers Softball program was established this year by Marquea Goike as a feeder program to the Hamilton High School softball team. Jr. Chargers Softball had one team in 2019 at the U10 level and will be wrapping up their season in the next couple weeks. After one year of serving as the head coach for the U10 team as well as the head softball coach at Hamilton, Marquea is taking on a new coaching role at Bryant & Stratton college this fall and is stepping down in her role as president of Jr. Chargers Softball. I'd like to thank Marquea for pioneering the program and establishing the foundation for a new wave of youth softball in our community.
Our Club's preliminary plans are to elect and add a Director of Softball to our Board of Directors with a Softball Committee to support and report out on all softball-specific operations. If you have an interest in assisting with the softball committee in any way, including coaches for all levels (U8, U10, U12, and U14) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
at your earliest convenience. The 2020 Softball Tryouts are scheduled for July 22 and 23 and we would appreciate anyone who is available to help (including our baseball coaching and tryout staff) to assist. After the tryouts and the softball players for 2020 are selected, we will be reaching out to the parents of those chosen to help us further build the program. Check out the Jr. Chargers Softball Facebook page (link below) and please contact me for more information.
More details to come as we finalize the transition in the coming weeks and look to either evolve our website and add softball-specific content or establish a separate new softball-specific website in the next 60 days.
Baseball Families - Please join me in welcoming the families who are a part of the 2019 Jr. Chargers Softball program and feel free to share this information with anyone in the area who may be considering a community select softball program in our area.
