ESLL Pitch Count Thresholds
In app, go to Events, select date, then click on Health Status
Welcome to the first week of practices! By now everyone should have received communication from their team and been invited/instructed to download the Team Manager App.
Using Team Manager App is a requirement for this season to be successful:
Coach/Team Parent must add all players and parents to roster
Coach/Team Parent must add all events to the events schedule
An Event = any practice, game, or other organized team gathering.
Parents must select their player’s availability (yes or no) before each event
Parents must complete the Health Screener before attending every event
Coach/Team Parent must confirm players Health Screen before every event.
You Must be a "STAFF" member in the app to view all players' health status.
Note - If you are using Shutterfly, the old Game Changer app, or relying on emails/text to coordinate player availability….Please discontinue that now and use Team Manager.
Team Manger (iOS Android) is the new app that replaces 'Game Changer". ESLL will be using this new version to score games, perform COVID screenings, and to manage team communication. Please see the attached on how to familiarize yourself with setting up your team.
The Team Parent is responsible for setting up your team and making sure all players' families are added. Additionally, for division AA-Majors, someone in attendance needs to be assigned to score every game with the app. Please familiarize yourself with the basics.
Note: Even if you're already a pro, please review at least step 1 to learn how to properly name your team. This will help ensure opponents can easily find your team and will save wasted time in having to manually enter every opposing team roster.
Hello ESLL Families,
We’re getting excited and based-off the inquiries, we know you are too! As always, things can change instantly, but here are some answers to some common questions...
Q: When does the season start?
A: The season officially begins March 20th, but you should be hearing from your managers this week.
Q: Will there be “real” practices?
A: YES! The “two-touch rule” is gone and we have permission for regular practices.
Q: Will there be “real”games?
A: YES! We plan to have the first two weeks of the season allocated for practices and scrimmages. THEN after Spring Break, the plan is to start the regular season with regular games.
Q: Will all the fields be available to use?
A: Fingers crossed that the answer is yes. We have access to Brett Field currently and the School Board is doing what they can to get approval for ESLL to use school fields. We will know more in the coming weeks.
Q: What happens if ESUSD doesn't vote in favor of allowing ESLL field use?
A: This would be a bummer and we’d look to find creative ways to schedule more games at fewer fields. We are looking at all the field space available to us.
Q: Will new safety protocols be in place?
A: Yes, we will have measures to help ensure safety. This will include COVID screening/temperature checks, sanitizing before, between and after innings, masks and social distancing. All Managers and Team Parents are required to attend a training session to get up to speed.
Q: What might a weekly schedule look like for a team?
Rookie: One 1-hr practice and one 1-hr game per week, one team will have a bye each week.
Single A: One 1-hr practice and one 90-min game per week.
AA: At least one 1-hr practice and at least one 90-min game per week. Aiming for two of each, but depends on field space.
