Heat Wave

Hi All.     Here is the guiding to playing outside in extreme heat. 

Heat Anytime the temperature is above 32 degrees C, provide plenty of water, shade and rest periods during games and practices.

Encourage players to drink small amounts frequently. If you observe any player exhibiting signs of heat related illness (cramps, fatigue, light- headedness, nausea, vomiting or headache), you must remove the player from the field immediately, place in shade and hydrate. If symptoms do not improve immediately, seek prompt medical aid.   Drinking Guidelines for Hot Day Activities  Before: Drink 8 oz. immediately before exercise  During: Drink at least 4 oz. every 20 minutes After: Drink 16 oz. for every pound of weight lost  Dehydration signs: Fatigue, flushed skin, light-headed.  What to do: Stop exercising, get out of sun, drink  Severe signs: Muscle spasms, clumsiness, delirium I recommend that you break down your practice so they have a water break every 15 mins.   

Thanks Your 2021 SCOLL Executive Committee!

A Message From Our President.

PLEASE READ – WE PLAN ON PLAYING, BUT WE NEED HELP

My name is Martin Talbot and I am the new President of Stoney Creek Little League (SCOLL). I started volunteering with SCOLL 6 years ago. Started as a coach, then a convenor and the last 3 years as Treasurer.


Due to Covid, our past board of director members have other commitments and will not be returning. This leaves SCOLL in a difficult position for the upcoming season. 
Currently we have a President and a Vice-President. Thank you to Tim Simmons stepping up in this role. However we cannot run SCOLL with 2 people.
So we need your help. Some of you of have already reached out to me and thank you. but we need more people for the following positions. Secretary, Treasurer, Uniform/Equipment Manager, Field Maintenance Manager, Convenors.These positions need to be filled before we can even look into getting coaches for the kids.
From there, we can strategically plan for the upcoming season.
We want to begin the week of June 28 and run until possibly Labour Day Weekend. Of course we cannot play games, we will look at running practices and if games become a possibility, we will look at running some kind of playoff at the end of the season. 
Again, this is only possible with help from you the parents. 
If interested in being a board member please send me an email, (scollprez@gmail.com).

The plan would be to hold a zoom call Thursday night at 7pm and discuss some of the positions and what that entails.
Thank you all, Let’s play Ball

Martin Talbot

President Stoney Creek Little League
