Message from AGSA Board President - 

Eric Hogan

March 3, 2019

Dear AGSA Members

My name is Eric Hogan and I'd like to take this time to introduce myself as the new President of AGSA. I am excited for my nomination to this position and am looking forward towards carrying on the great tradition of softball in the city of Ankeny. I'd like to thank our out going President, David Billings, for his years of dedication and service to our association.

Softball season is just around the corner. I want to extend a WARM welcome to all of you on behalf of the Board of Directors. Before too long, the snow will all be melted and we will be outside playing this great game of softball! As a parent and coach in this program, I understand the joy of watching our young players grow and improve through out the years. These memories will last a lifetime and it is my hope that you can look back on these times fondly.

Our association is over 300 members strong between the ages of 7U -18U that prides itself on providing a positive environment on developing sportsmanship, character, and skill at all levels. Our board is run by volunteers who are working tirelessly to improve the association. Last year, we as an association decided to put an emphasis on improving player development. In the fall we implemented the Developmental League for the 8U-12U age groups. Through the Developmental League, we spent six weeks working on skills and drills to establish a foundation for our players future growth. We also recognized that a lot of our coaches within AGSA, who are also volunteers, needed coaching support and we used the Developmental League to help our coaches further hone their skills by teaching structured practice plans utilizing the drills we held during this process. Also, during this process, we used the six weeks to evaluate players for team placement. This allowed us to eliminate the tryouts we held in the past. We felt that this helped the players out tremendously by eliminating any anxiety that they would have had previously. Evan though the Developmental League was a success last fall, we as an association learned a ton from this and will be discussing ways to further improve upon this in the upcoming months.

In closing, I'd like to remind everyone that softball is a game that is meant to be enjoyed by our young players. This spring/summer, please do your best to represent Ankeny well by providing a positive atmosphere around the girls. Show good sportsmanship and respect to all players, coaches, umpires and fans and this includes your opponents as well.

Good luck to all of teams this upcoming season and have fun!

Regards,

Eric Hogan

AGSA President
