If it is raining, it is the coaches' decision whether to hold practice or not. For games, information will be posted on the home page or Facebook by 4:00 pm whether games will be played or not. If it starts to rain while games are in progress, the board member on duty and/or the umpire will have the responsibility to call the game.
In March MGSA holds a coaching certification. The certification is through the National Youth Sports Coaches Association. All coaches are required to attend this training. The cost is paid for by MGSA. The hour long training provides MGSA coaches liability insurance. The date of the 2018 training is: TBD. If you are coaching for the 2017 Season, MGSA will reimburse you for the cost of your membership renewal. Please contact a MGSA Board Member on draft night or email us for arrangements.
Coaches certification will take place first, followed by the player draft. All coaches must attend the draft night.
