Summer Coach's Meeting
NVTBL Summer Coach's Meeting

  • For all Summer Team Coaches (JV, Varsity, PSLF and PSL)

    The Summer NVTBL Coaches Meeting will be held -

  • Sunday, May 23
  • 12:30 pm
  • 14325 Willard Road, Chantilly
  • (go around to back of building where the loading dock is located)
  • Bring a chair

    We will have a brief coach's meeting followed by distribution of the 2 dozen baseballs to each team in attendance.

    In order to receive the NVTBL game baseball incentive, you must have an individual representing each team. You can't have one person who represents multiple teams. The entire reason the coaches committee put the baseball incentive in place years ago was to ensure that there is a coach or rep from each specific team who engages with all rules, guidelines and protocols.

    This is the ONLY opportunity available to pick up the baseballs. The representative does NOT have to be a coach, although it is preferred.

    NOTE: If your team is a PRACTICE ONLY TEAM, you will NOT receive baseballs.

    **JV Teams who played in March-April-May will NOT receive additional baseballs. If you attended the coaches meeting in March, you do NOT need to attend this meeting.**
