Change Team: 
First week of practice!
by posted 04/12/2021

Hey team,

This week is our first week of practice, and we are excited to meet everyone and begin learning and having fun!

 

First practice: Thursday, April 15 at 6:30pm at Kraft Meadows - KM3

Second practice: Saturday, April 17 at 9:30am at Caledonia Elementary - 1

 

We've had some questions about gear for this season.  The league has supplied us with 3 batting helments, two bats, a tee, bag of t-balls (softer than baseballs), catching gear, and first aid kit.

 

You child will need a glove, water or drink labeled with their name (we are not sure if there will be water fountains operational at the fields so make sure to fill up prior to practice), facial mask, and athletic clothes.

 

If your child owns a bat or helmet, feel free to bring it.  Please label personal items and let us know if they can be shared, or need to only be used by your child.

 

There is an option under your profile on this site to receive reminders regarding practices or games, I recommend selecting that b/c life is busy and hopefully it will help remind folks where and when we will be playing.

 

Hope to see everyone on Thursday!  If you cannot make it, please email or feel free to text Amanda or myself.

Welcome to the team and contact info
by posted 04/05/2021

Hello, and welcome from your CBSL T-ball coaches!

 
A little about us... I'm Amanda Terpstra, the coach of record but my husband Ryan Terpstra will be co-coaching as well. We have years of experience coaching youth of all ages. Ryan grew up playing baseball and has coached youth basketball teams. I'm a little light on the baseball side of things, but I'm getting up to speed!  I do currently coach a middle & high school equestrian team, and have been involved in 4H for many years. Our son is named Holden and he will be joining us on the team as well. We live in Middleville, and this is our first year in CBSL. We're excited to get started with the season!
 
We could use some volunteers to assist with safety and drills. If you have any interest let me know and we will get you the background check link. If you'd like to help out - but need a smaller time commitment this is a great opportunity. You need not be at all the games/practices to lend a hand. 
 
 
Some quick notes on the season:
 
Notes regarding COVID-19 protocols.  These have been supplied to us by the league and we are copy/pasting:
 

CBSL uses fields that are owned by Caledonia Community Schools and, therefore, we are required to follow all protocols issued by the district.  Currently, this includes the following

  • All guests at our facilities are required to wear masks (including parents, players and spectators)
  • Parents must complete the COVID-19 tracking log for their child prior to each practice and game.  Please include the link below with all your practice/game email reminders.

 

CBSL COVID-19 LOG:   http://covidlog.caledonialittleleague.com/

 
-Please be to games :15 minutes early
 
-Please label your kids gloves, water bottles, and any other items.  We have the gear supplied by CBSL which includes a tee, balls, helmets, two bats, catcher gear, and first aid.
 
-Both my husband and I work 8-5, we'll try to respond promptly to texts and emails when we can. 
 
Our expectations for the kids are pretty simple: try your best, show good sportsmanship to everyone, and HAVE FUN!
 
Our first practice is scheduled for Thursday, April 15 at 6:30PM at Kraft Meadows, KM3. The league has mentioned that practice and game times/locations can potentially change, so make sure to reference the website when double checking the schedule.  If you print it out and put it on the fridge, it could change!
 
Can't wait to meet everyone and have a fantastic season.  Below is our contact info.  Please email both of us if you prefer that method.  We are very receptive to text messages.
