DORR REC COMMUNICATION
We will always try to post cancellations on facebook and the website but the best way to sign up is our Remind 101 service that sends alerts via text or email. This is the same app used by some of the teachers in the school district.
If you have previously signed up (last year), you do NOT need to do again. To sign up for text or email notifications please the instructions below:
TEXT: text @dbaseball to 81010. You can optout of messages at anytime by replying, 'unsubscribe @dbaseball'. Trouble using 81010? Try texting @dbaseball to (616) 232-6915 instead.
EMAIL: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To
unsubscribe, reply with 'unsubscribe' in the subject line.
PRACTICES Practice schedules and cancellations are managed by coaches within required safety parameters (ie. lightening, warnings, etc.). Please look for communications from coaches via email, phone or text. If you're unsure how your coach communicates please feel free to inquire.
Once games start, cancelations are made by the advising board for the home team within the league. For example, if you're playing in Dorr then Dorr will make the call, Hopkins then Hopkins makes the call, etc. Its important to note that weather can be drastically different even between Dorr and Hopkins therefore each call is made individually. Please don't assume that if Dorr makes the call that another location will do the same because if our teams don't show it will be considered a forfeit.
If you have any questions please contact us via private message or email at email@example.com
Dorr Rec is a non profit organization, run entirely by volunteers. We organize all of the youth sports activities in our community, and strive to create the best environment possible for the enrichment of our community's youth.
Dorr Rec is not connected with any of the township offices. Our positions are not on the township ballots, and we are not voted into office by the residents of the community. Our board members and trustees are 100% volunteer, giving of their time, energies, and gifts in support of each of our programs.
Our meetings are open to the public and fall on the last Wednesday of each month. If you wish to get involved, become a trustee or board member, we don't require a petition with a minimum number of signatures. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, come to our monthly meetings, and tell us where your passions are to get involved with our youth activities.
A Statistical Analysis of Youth Football Players Aged 9-13 Years. An April 2002 study by the Sports Medicine Center at the Mayo Clinic shows, among other things, that “the risk of injury in youth football does not appear greater than other recreational or competitive sports.” While many studies have been done on football players in the past, most of them focus on the high school age or older. As outlined in the report, “the purpose of the project was to determine the risk of injury in youth football games.”After receiving written consent from all of the parents, the researchers studied over 900 youth football players, ranging in age from 9-13, for an entire season. The study concluded that “youth football injuries are uncommon. Most injuries are mild.
