Dixie Youth baseball sign ups to begin next week

-A A +A

Baseball is just around the corner. Dixie Youth League sign ups will be held on Feb. 16, Feb. 23 and March 2, Dixie Youth Board Member Wade Lawson said.
“We had over 500 kids last year,” Lawson said. “Which was really good for us.”
Signup forms can be obtained at the LaFollette Recreation Center, Lawson said. Lawson hopes to have them at some schools as well. Parents need to complete the information such as name, address and age of the child, Lawson said. Children who participate can find out information about coaches when they receive applications, Dixie Youth League coach Matt Murray said.
Applications should be turned into coaches, who organize their teams, said Matt Murray, Dixie Youth coach. Coaches collect applications and fees, Murray said.  
A coaches’ meeting was held on Feb. 10, Murray said.
“Just basically start early, try to get ahead,” Lawson said.
Not all the coaches and Dixie Youth board members attended, Murray said. However, the next meeting should be well attended, he said.
“March 8 is the next meeting,” Murray said.  “Should be a packed house.”
