2014 CAA Softball Winter Membership Program at P2P

2014 CAA Softball Winter Membership Program at P2P

 

Chanhassen Athletic Association (CAA) Softball is excited to announce our 2014-2015 winter softball workout program at Pitch2Pitch.

 

Registration opens Sept 17th

Cost: 1 payment of $75 for the entire winter season

Dates: 9/21/2014 – 2/28/2015

Groups: 10U, 12U, West Metro Thunder

This is an all volunteer arrangement as CAA Softball is only purchasing access to the facility; so 1 parent per player is asked to stay and help as needed.

Each age group will be limited to 25 players.  To add flexibility; if a player has a conflict with their time, they are invited to attend a time for either one age level younger or one age level older to resolve the conflict.  Each age group will have 2 batting cage times scheduled per week, plus 1 turf session on Saturdays.  The Saturday session will include a lead Pitch2Pitch instructor and CAA/WMT coaches to lead the winter workout with the players.

 

The program runs 9/21/2014 – 2/28/2015

Registrations not paid in full will be deleted

Registered players will check in at the P2P front desk.  The front desk has a list of the registered players for each age division.  CAA Softball pitching machines are available for use inside the tunnels.  Balls for the machine as well as 11" and 12" softballs are availalbe at the front desk for check-out and use.

Age groups will have tunnel allocation within these times

2014-15 CAA Baseball Winter Program

2014 CAA Baseball Winter Workout Program at P2P

 

Chanhassen Athletic Association (CAA) Baseball is excited to announce our 2014-15 winter baseball workout program at Pitch2Pitch’s Chanhassen facility.  The program is open to all CAA Baseball players with 2015 baseball ages of 9 – 15, and will run from 9/29/14 – 3/29/2015 (~ 6 month program).  The cost is a very reasonable $179 for the entire winter season (~$30/month), and provides several opportunities each week to get some informal throwing/pitching, hitting and ground ball work in.

Each player’s age group will have 2 dedicated batting/pitching cage times scheduled per week, plus several “Open” cage times available for all registered players. Please see the Documents tab of the CAA website for the schedule.

To register and pay, please go to the CAA BB/SB Registrations page. We encourage you to sign up now as each age group will be limited to 25 players.


The Winter Program is an excellent opportunity to build your player’s skills…and is an integral part of the CAA player development approach.  This is an all-volunteer arrangement as CAA Baseball is only purchasing access to the facility; so 1 parent per player is asked to stay and help as needed (i.e. run pitching machines – which are included with the cages, organize “soft toss”, etc.).

This will be the only winter program offered and there will not be discounted sessions offered later in the winter/spring season.

Thanks…and here’s to a great winter baseball season!

eChecks vs Credit Cards
Hello CAA Baseball/Softball association parents.
We would like you to please consider paying with e-checks instead of credit cards for all of your CAA BB/SB programs.  It can have the net result of saving your association a significant amount of money over the course of a season.
The CAA web site accepts two types of payments, e-checks (bank transactions) and credit cards online.  
The payment system costs only $0.75 per transaction for e-checks and 2.8% + $0.30 per transaction for credit cards.
 
So, for a $300 registration, it would cost CAA just $0.75 for an e check, but in comparison it costs us $8.70 for a credit card transaction.  Multiply that by about a thousand boys and girls in the program and that amounts to a significant amount of money that we could use for something else.
 
Please investigate your banking situation and find out if you can begin using e-checks instead of credit cards this next year.
