CPFA Board Member Application

Are you interested in making a difference in the community? Are you interested in helping to develop our young ladies into leaders and athletes?

 

We are seeking a new board member to add to our Champlin Park Fastpitch Association Board of Directors. The positions are a 3-year term. The specific accountabilities will be determined during the November board meeting.

 

Joining the board is a great opportunity to help grow the program. Over the past year, we have heard some good ideas on things that people would like to see done. By joining the board, you can assist in helping make some of those changes and work to make the experience for the girls the best it can be. It is also a fun way to see how the Association works and get to know a lot of parents at all levels.

 

Board member level of commitment:

 

  1. Attend a monthly board meeting, typically the 2nd Sunday of each month
  2. Help in Association events such as clinics, tournaments, and league games
  3. Help promote the Association in the community

To be considered, please complete the application at the link below. Once we receive all applications, the board will vote for who they feel is best to represent our association as a member of the board. We will contact new members prior to the November board meeting and will then post on the website. Please reach out to a current board member if you have any questions!


Please apply for our open CPFA Board Position.


Covid 19 Update

Obviously, there will be some changes in how practices and games will look with the new MDH COVID19 safety protocols. Please take some time to review the Back to the Diamond Safety Guidelines attached below as well as all of the information on the Minnesota Softball site (link below).



Covid 19 Update

The Minnesota Youth Athletic Services/Gopher State Baseball, Metro Baseball League/Minnesota Baseball Tournaments, and USA Softball Minnesota/Minnesota Softball have joined together to submit a “2020 Back to the Diamond” proposal to the Governor regarding how to safely get our ball players back on the field. The Champlin Park Fastpitch Association is currently awaiting word regarding this proposal. When and if this proposal is approved, we will be ready to begin safely practicing. If you would like more information on this proposal, please see the full press release below.



2021 Spring/Summer Fastpitch League

Thank you for your interest in Champlin Park Fastpitch!

Fastpitch with CPFA is a competitive traveling organization. Games are broken up between home (at Champlin Park High School) and away (in surrounding communities).

Practice is based upon the coach, but many teams will practice two nights per week. There are also weekend tournaments that are determined by team/coach. The Association will hold a player/parent meeting before the season starts so teams can get to know each other and their coaches. In this meeting tournament schedules can be determined.

 

SEASON EXPECTATIONS:

Try-out process

  • No refunds after team determination - Tryouts will be held in late Feb/early March.
  • Closed try-outs (parents cannot watch)
  • Coaches observe try-outs, but do not evaluate
  • Evaluators are independent volunteers

Schedule

  • We will begin practices as soon as we can get on the fields (usually mid-April)
  • Games begin early May (coaches will provide exact schedules)
    • Expect one game/week while school is in session and two games/week at the end of the season once school is out of session
    • Games are double headers beginning at 6:15
    • You will have to travel to games in other communities within our Northwest region
  • Practices are at the coach’s discretion, but usually twice per week
  • Tournaments
    • The Association fees include registration entries into our home tournament, one tournament at your coach’s discretion, State qualifiers, and the State tournament.
    • Your coach may choose to register for additional tournaments. The team covers these fees. Higher-level teams typically enter an additional 3-5 tournaments; the lower teams do fewer. The individual fees depend on how many players are on the team and how much each tournament costs. 

2021 Dates TBD

2021 Fees TBD

 

Volunteer hours

  • We are a volunteer-based organization and rely on families doing volunteer hours to manage our fields, concessions, and our tournament
  • We will offer an option to “buy out” of your volunteer obligation
  • We will have more information on this at the player-parent meeting

 

Fundraiser

  • We do have a mandatory fundraiser that funds field improvements, new training equipment, and to help control registration fees

Please see the Player Development and Registration tabs for clinics and other training and development opportunities for your child.
