**A message from our President**

Hello Chestermere Crushers Families:

Our league now has access to Big Al’s online training and development programs and resources for all of the Parents and Players in our League for 2020.

From Big Al:  “We are in the middle of some unpredictable and challenging times for players and their parents and we want to help you and the families across your baseball community. Scott and I have decided to provide every Little League in Canada and across the United States with free access to our online Parent 4-8 and Parent 9-12 programs and resources for the balance of 2020.”

These are the guys who took over from Al Herback and go all over the world teaching baseball fundamentals.  We are lucky to have this opportunity!

The parent programs include instructional videos of the fundamental skills that players should learn and practice at both the 4-8 year old and 9-12 year old levels. The online programs also include a Section called Practice at Home.  This section of videos includes lots of fun drills, games and challenges that you can practice at home so you can get stronger and improve your skills all season long.

There is also a section on strategy and positional play with roles and responsibilities for every player on the team in a variety of game situations.  These resources will help you and your son or daughter have fun, stay in shape and improve their skills at home over the next few weeks and all season long.

To have a quick look at what the programs include please watch the 2 short Parent Videos on the front page of www.bigalbaseball.com.
