Senior Softball - Dome Ball Update
Oct 26, 2021, 2:44 PM
Almost time to turn the clocks back and turn the calendar forward to November which means it’s time to start thinking about winter, snow, and the start of the 2021-2022 Senior Dome Softball season. At this time, the dome committee has been in contact with Michael Sheggeby, the RCTC dome director, to find out when setup for the dome should take place and what COVID protocols may be in place once the dome is up. When we do have these answers from Michael, we will be sending out an email survey to determine the number of players we will have for Mondays, Wednesdays, and possible Fridays in the dome. (Very) Preliminary conversation with Michael is pointing to an early to mid-December starting date.
We will be operating the league in the same format we have used in previous years. Mondays and Fridays (if we have enough players sign up for Fridays) will consist of a batting practice followed by a scrimmage/game for all who choose to play. These days will be more for the senior recreational players looking to stay active through the winter months.
Wednesdays will again consist of drafted teams playing scheduled games with a short warmup/batting practice taking place before the first game. Players wanting to play in the Wednesday league games will declare themselves eligible to be drafted for each session, and the season will be split up into several sessions with a draft taking place prior to each session. In the same manner as the RMSS summer league, the Senior Dome Softball winter league will focus on fun, fitness and fellowship.
Players will be required to fill out and submit a player registration/waiver form prior to participating in practices or games. Attached is a pdf file of the player registration/waiver document. This document may be completed and then returned as per the instructions shown on the bottom of the page.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you in the dome soon! Also looking forward to another fun and successful Senior Dome Softball season!
