Attention Baseball Coaches Parker, Castlerock, Lone Tree, Aurora, Franktown Colorado

The current 2008 10u AAA Parker Cyclones Baseball Club (1st place AYL 10U AAA division; 3rd place (of 20 top state teams) in the USSSA 10U AAA State Championship) is growing and now seeking experienced and dedicated players to complete our rosters. For the 2009 season, the club will be comprised of 2 age divisions – 10U and 11U – and will be competing in tournament baseball, as well as participating in league play through Arapahoe Youth League (AYL). Quality players interested in competitive baseball, are invited to reserve an appointment for selection tryouts. Parker Cyclones Baseball Club (a feeder program organization) was created to offer talented and motivated youth baseball players a greater opportunity for future recognition and to play against other competitive teams at a higher level. We are looking for talented, well-rounded and motivated players wanting to play and committed to staying together for several years, forming not only a winning Feeder baseball club, but friendships and memories that last a lifetime. Parker Cyclones Baseball organization is dedicated to more than just developing baseball players. The goal of our program is to create an environment that fosters development of a high level of playing skill and character values, promotes true sportsmanship, encourages teamwork, and instills a passion and dedication for the game of Baseball and life, all in a fun, competitive environment. All players will be considered for all infield and outfield positions and can earn a minimum of 2 positions of play. As our recognized players move into high school play (the foundation purpose of our program), they should be very well prepared (to feeder guidelines) and fully capable of playing at the necessary level. Players will have opportunities to improve their individual baseball skills, as well as learn team strategy, the dynamics of the game itself and advanced fundamentals of play with an emphasis on the teamwork, dedication and perseverance needed to play competitive baseball. A maximum of eleven boys will be chosen for each team. Limited roster spots are available.

Tryouts are held by appointment or August 4-9, 2008

Baseball Coaches Parker, Castlerock, Lone Tree, Aurora, Franktown Colorado

Coaches, Hello, My name is John Hart and I am one of the assistant coaches for the Cyclones baseball organization out of Parker, for 10 U. We are a new team this year with players from Castle Rock, Parker, Franktown, Lone Tree, and Aurora. Primarily comprised of 9 yr olds playing up and early 10 yr olds. Most of the boys have come from competitive level AYL teams, including my son. We are playing AYL 10U and tournaments, I am contacting coaches for two reasons, one would be to extend the offer of scrimmages if any teams would be interested (obviously great practice and learning for the boys), and two is to see if anyone(coaches) know of any 9-10 yr olds that need a team, we need 1 ball player to round out our roster, as a couple of our boys are not available to play Sundays due to religious preferences. So we would be shorter on Sundays for tournaments, but would entertain a kid playing just league, just tournaments or tournaments and league. So if you would like to scrimmage or would know of any kids needing a team, feel free to call me or have them call me direct on my cell @ 303-434-5711 or You can also reach Warren Jablonski @303-435-1983. I look forward to meeting you all. We wish you all a wonderful season and hope to see you out on the ball fields.

Best regards !!! Take care!

John
