Practice Fields

Southern would like to clarify the following regarding practice fields. First we would like to thank the teams for their cooperation in moving their practices yesterday and today from the JC West field as the softball schedules were released late and games started last night. During the season, which has started for softball and starts tomorrow for baseball, we encourage you to continue to practice once a week. This can be done by using the batting cages, securing Lakeside or using another site. Please contact your league director for suggestions of other sites.

Reminder: The JC East field is no longer available to Southern for practices or games. That field is exclusively used for soccer. The city of Grand Rapids has been gracious in leasing the JC West field to Southern as part of a growing need for our field space. Please do not use the JC East field even if nobody else is on it. It simply is not for baseball or softball use.

Lastly the city of East Grand Rapids has asked that all Southern coaches contact Southern regarding any use of fields in East Grand Rapids. We have a working relationship which grants Southern permission to use Lakeside for practices thru the end of May. No other fields are available for reservation thru EGR as they are used by multiple sports programs. Please respect the request from the EGR Recreation department and address your requests thru your league director.

On behalf of everyone at Southern have a Great Season!!
