    Field Status

    Fields will be reviewed daily (Weekdays between 3:00 and 4:00 pm) and (weekends prior to 0900) to ensure they are dry enough to play.  Fields will be closed any time there is a weather warning in effect in the county.  Fields will be closed when the wind chill temperature is below 40 degrees. If you have any questions about Field Status, please reach out to one of the Executive Board Members or Becky Whitman.

    Field Status will be "Open", "Pending" or "Closed"
     
    • "OPEN" - Fields and Cages are Open for Play or Practice. Coaches, please ensure fields and mounds are properly raked and dragged after use.
    • "PENDING" - SYB will review the Field Status for play based on the given times above. 
    • "CLOSED" - All areas "Closed".  No Practice or Play is allowed.

    In the event, Rain has occurred in the past 24 hours or the fields were "CLOSED" the previous day, the Field Status will show as "PENDING"until an SYB Board Member can check the Park.

    Ballpark Update - Friday 3/26/2021 @ 12:20PM

    SYB Friends and Family,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the Newnan, Sharpsburg, and surrounding areas who experienced damage and loss in last night’s storms. We suffered some damage at the park and posted some photos below. The top fields are wet and in need of some TLC, but the back fields are not playable at this time. Coweta Parks and Rec has already started removing some debris. We have decided to close the park tomorrow and cancel all games to allow everyone to recover and make sure the park is safe. We will keep everyone updated as soon as we make decisions for next week. Check our website for any updates and everyone, please stay safe!

    Thanks,
    SYB Board of Directors

    Spring 2021 Update

    • All teams have been rostered online.  You should now be able to log into the Sports Engine app or SYB website to see your team.  You can even contact your coaches from there.  From the SYB website, go to the “Organization” drop down to view you team and team page.  We encourage everyone to download and log into the Sports Engine app as well.  This is how many coaches will communication with you through the chat feature.  Please be sure to turn on the alerts for the app.  This will also be the best way for you to get the game schedules once they are posted in a few weeks.  There is even a way to sync the game schedule to your smartphone’s calendar. 
    • Also, with the Sports Engine app, we have always had an issue with only one on parent’s info showing up for the coaches to see.  Well, I finally have the solution.   From a PC, log into the SYB website, click into the “My SportsEngine” page (the icon/avatar/profile pic at the top right).  Then go to Household. Once there, click on your players tab.  From there you should see yourself and a plus sign to add a second guardian.  Please be sure to fill out as much info as you can for all guardians.  This is important for our coaches to be able to contact you about practices and games, but also if there is an emergency.  We ask they you add all contact that may be used to get your players to and from the park.  For more detailed instructions, please visit the Sports Engine help page here:  https://help.sportsengine.com/en/articles/314-how-to-add-guardians
    • Next, we have posted the practice schedules below.  Please note that this is current as of today, but practice are ever changing.  Use this as a reference, but please always make sure you confirm with your coaches before heading to the park. 
    • Lastly, we all know this time of the year is crazy for GA weather.  What is forecasted as a storm in the morning, may never rain a drop at the park.   We always try to open the park whenever possible, so we often wait until the last minute to decide when to close.  We will update the park status online and send a message to the coaches as soon as a decision is made.    The board members (who by the way, all have full time jobs) as well as a team of volunteers do their best to prep the fields after it’s rained.  When the park is closed, we ask that everyone honor that, and do not use the park. If there is ever a case where the batting cages are open, but the fields are closed, please honor that as well and do not get on the infield or outfield.  Dirt is easy to repair, but soggy grass divots very easily and that is not easy to repair.  We do not want players or siblings on the fields when they are closed for their safety and the maintenance of our fields.

    We also want to thank our partners MPH Throwing Academy for running a very smooth tryout for our players.  Their professionalism gave our players the best opportunity to "show their best" to our volunteer coaches.

    INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

    C. SYB INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY SYB INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY will apply to all SYB Practices, Scheduled Games or Tournaments

    The cold weather policy is fairly straight forward: If the “feels like temperature" is below 40 degrees during any game play or practice times we will not permit players on the fields. SYB will make every effort to make decisions related to this policy as far in advance as possible on game days & for practice times.

    Umpires, Coaches and League Officials shall monitor for the signs indicating that thunderstorm are developing. Since the average distance between successive lightning flashes is approximately two to three miles, ANYTIME that lightning can be seen or thunder is heard, the risk is already present. If lightning is imminent or a thunderstorm is approaching, all personnel, athletes and spectators shall evacuate to available safe structures or shelters.

    WHAT SHOULD I DO AS A COACH, PARENT OR PLAYER IF IT IS RAINING?

    The most important thing a Coach, Player or Parent you can do if it is raining outside is be patient.  SYB will make every effort within reason to play all games as scheduled.  

    In the event it is raining outside, SYB will make every effort to evaluate the fields by 4:00 pm on the day of the event.  Please monitor the website for the latest information.  It will always be the first think we update in the events of a cancellation.

    Ball Park reminders...

    Parents, Players and Coaches,

                   Now that the season is underway, we wanted to ask that you continue to remember the following items of concern so we can all enjoy the season. 
     

    Concession Stand

    First off, we want to give a shout-out to our concessionaire, Brenda Kay, for the great work she and her team of helpers have done the last few seasons and continues to do for our families this season.  They work hard keeping the concession stands stocked, grilling burgers and hot dogs, and then working during the games so you, the parents, can watch your kids play ball instead of having to take turns working in the concession stand. 

    In order to ensure the success of our concession stand, the SYB Board is asking that you please do NOT bring outside food into the park.  We invite you to enjoy the food they sell in the concession stand... see below for the menu!  The more we can support the concession stands, the better chance we have of keeping them each season.  One cooler per team is allowed for after game drinks and snacks...  With that being said, we have worked out a deal with the concession stand where you can purchase after game drinks and a snack for $2 a player.  This will eliminate each parent having to remember to buy drinks and snacks and then lug a cooler to the game.  If you choose to do this, please let them know ahead of time so they can be prepared.  They can be emailed at sybfood@gmail.com.

    CLICK HERE FOR MENU


    GUM

    Please ensure your players are disposing of their gum properly.  No one should be discarding their gum onto the ground ANYWHERE.  Please remind them to throw it in a trash can.  If they are seen discarding it onto the ground they will be asked to pick it up and discard it properly.  

     

    OTHER “HOUSEKEEPING” ITEMS:

    1. No smoking, vaping or tobacco products allowed at the park – We are a county facility, and this is a county ordinance:
      1. Sec. 2-1. - Tobacco use in and on county-owned properties. Smoking, the use of tobacco products and the use of any smoking device that produces smoke, steam or vapor, is hereby prohibited on all public properties and in all public areas owned by Coweta County, including, but not limited to, county-owned government facilities, buildings, vehicles, playgrounds and athletic fields. This prohibition shall not restrict smoking in private vehicles parked on county property or public rights-of-way;
    2. Seeing that we are a County Facility, we must also all adhere to the Coweta County Park and Recreation codes that can be found by CLICKING HERE
    3. Please help keep the park clean and be sure that players pick up trash and bottles in the dugouts after every game.
    4. We also ask that everyone remembers the code of conduct that you all agreed to during the player registration and coaches application process: 

     

    Parking

    We know that there is a limited number of parking space.  It is something we try to take into consideration when making the schedules, but sometimes, mainly on Saturdays, there are a lot of folks coming in and out of the park.   Please obey the law and use the Stop Signs as they are posted and DO NOT park in a handicap spot illegally.   Also, use some common sense.   Try not to cross the line and take up two spots and if you are going to jump the curbs, be careful and do not block someone else in.  See below for some good examples of how NOT to park.

    Sorry for the "RULES" email, but we want to make sure everyone is aware so that we can all enjoy our time at the park.

    Hope everyone has a great season!

    Thanks,
    SYB Board of Directors.
