On behalf of the Coeur d’Alene American Legion Baseball Program, I would like to personally welcome all of you to the 2015 Season. This website will be the platform, along with social media, to better communicate with the players, parents, and general public regarding the program. In the meantime we have updated the current Legion board members and their contact information. Please feel free to reach out to myself or any board member with any questions you may have.
We will begin winter workouts on Sunday November 2 at Lake City High School. These workouts are open to any prospective player that resides in the CDA area. The workouts will begin at 5:00 PM and end at 6:30 PM. They will be held in the baseball facility which is located in the rear of the school by the baseball field. These workouts will be held every Sunday throughout the winter and will end on or before January 26, 2015.
We will field four teams this year, 14U, 16U, A, and AA. All four teams will compete locally as well as travel to regional tournaments. We are in the process of selecting coaches and hope to have an announcement soon regarding the coaches for the 2015 season. This year we host the Idaho State Legion Tournament in Coeur d’Alene. We are privileged to host this tournament which is great for our players as well as the community.
There are many options for competitive baseball in the Coeur d’Alene area, which we are lucky to have. The Legion Program is the only program that is focused on not only competitive baseball but developing community leaders as well. We work with local businesses and community leaders to help our players fund the costs of the program. By doing this there is a direct relationship between the player, program, and the community.
We have many Legion Alumni that are still very active in the program. To say this process is rewarding is an understatement. The Legion season is one of the most rewarding experiences that these players will have. I hope to see your son and family at Lake City next month and on the field next summer.
