Practice Time at Strehl for 2016
- Publish Date: Tuesday, January 26, 2016

As many of you may have read, SPAA will not be using Strehl Field (located at 6000 Hwy N) for games this year.  We have been told construction on Hwy N will begin soon which could limit the traffic to all eastbound or all westbound at times. 

 

The SPAA Board of Directors has decided to utilize Strehl for permitted practice time this year.

 

IN ORDER TO PRACTICE AT STREHL YOU MUST HAVE A PERMIT ISSUED THROUGH THE SPAA OFFICE. 

 

To obtain a permit you must follow the procedures and policies listed below.

 

  1. At the current time permits will only be issued to SPAA teams that have a team set up with SPAA for the 2016 season or board member’s teams.  Should we have extra spots available, we will entertain the idea of opening it up to any team.

  2. Beginning February 1 - contact the SPAA office either via email (stpeteraa@spaa.com); phone (636-397-3149); or in person (19 Main Street, St. Peters, MO.)

  3. All practice slots will be 1 ½ hours in length.  Beginning at 5:00 PM on weekdays and 8:00 AM on weekends.  THERE ARE NO LIGHTS AT STREHL.

  4. There will be no charge for practice times issued up until April 4.  From April 4 on there will be a $15 charge/slot and this MUST be paid when you reserve the field.  NO RESERVATIONS WILL BE MADE WITHOUT PAYMENT. *** Any reservations being paid by credit card will be $16/slot.*** 

  5. Each team will be allowed to reserve 1 practice time per week for 6 weeks (do not have to be consecutive weeks).  Once you are down to 2 times left, you may reserve another 6 weeks.

  6. Beginning February 29, you may pick up any open slots that there may be for the following week. 

  7. Teams are expected to clean up after themselves and keep trash in the trash containers provided. 

  8. NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE – ONLY CREDITS WHEN APPLICABLE

  9. In the case of inclement weather, a credit will be given for your practice time as long as you cancel at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time.  This must be done by email (stpeteraa@spaa.com), phone call (636-397-3149) or in person so a time stamp will be available.  Notification after your practice time was to begin will not be eligible for a credit.

  10. No credit will be issued for time scheduled and not used unless it falls under our inclement weather policy with proper notice. 

  11. Bases will not be out and fields will not be lined.  Mounds will be on the side of the field.  ABSOLUTELY NO METAL CLEATS ON THE MOUNDS.     

  12. Restroom facilities will not be available until the weather breaks and it is safe to turn the water on. 

     

    With this being our first time doing this, we will make adjustments as we need to and as directed by the SPAA Board of directors. 

     

    Teams are welcome to seek practice time and fields elsewhere.  This is just what SPAA can offer at this time. 

 
Umpires Needed
- Publish Date: Wednesday, October 7, 2015

SPAA is looking for experienced umpires to add to our already great core group of umpires.  SPAA pays top pay starting at $15 for a 1 hour game up to $45 per game for a 2 hour game.  Interested individuals should contact the SPAA Umpire in Chief, Bob Woodsmall, either by email at umpires@spaa.com or through the SPAA office at 636-397-3149. 

If you will be 14 by April of 2016, keep us in mind for a part time summer job next year.  Our training classes start in January.

Field Status
- Publish Date: Thursday, May 21, 2015

The "Status" box to the left is the field status box.  We will update field status by 4 PM on weekdays; 7:30 AM on Saturdays; and 11 AM on Sundays.  We have also added a feature that if games are canceled they will show at the top of this webpage.  If no games are canceled, there will not be anything there.  Please be sure and check this also, as on the weekend we may not cancel the whole day at one time. 

"Closed" means your field is not playing. (all locations closed means all SPAA fields are canceled)

A "Delayed" status means the field is still being checked or worked and we will updated again before the designated time.

If your field not on the list that means it is playing.

If you play in Lake St. Louis you will need to contact LSL at http://www.quickscores.com/nhybl

This box updates in real time, meaning as I put in a status for a field it updates immediately, even though I am still updating other fields.   Be sure and check the date and time at the bottom of the status box as I will update that when I am finished with updates for that particular time. 

 
Reschedule Instructions for Teams (except DH teams)
- Publish Date: Friday, May 8, 2015

The reschedule instructions for teams is in your manager's packet, but in case you have misplaced those, here they are again.

All teams will be rescheduling their own rainouts this year (with the exception of Girls DH).  Following are the instructions for this:

  1. Once your game is rained out you will get an email stating it is rained out.

  2. If you are the home team, you will be responsible for rescheduling the game.

  3. Go to the top right hand corner of the website and hit “login”

  4. Once you have put in your user name and password, go back to the top right and click on your name.

  5. Select your team registration

  6. Select the option “Reschedule games that have been postponed”

  7. If you were the home team of a rained out/postponed game, you will see the games available to reschedule.  NOTE:  if you were the visiting team, it will not be available for you to reschedule.

  8. Click on the game you want to reschedule.

  9. A list of dates/times will appear.

  10. DO NOT JUST “CONFIRM” A DATE AND TIME WITHOUT CHECKING WITH THE OTHER TEAM.  The best thing to do is to contact the other manager right away and together decide on a date and time.  

  11. You may reserve a date and time by clicking on them and then hit “click here to reserve this game date”.  You will need to click again on “temporarily reserve this game time” before it totally reserves it for you.  Be sure and follow the instructions on the screen to the end.

  12. Multiple time slots may appear for the same day.  You would need to select the EARLIEST time slot for that day so we can have a smooth schedule.  If for some reason you cannot play the earliest time slot of that day, please contact me to discuss the possibilities of using a later time slot on that day before reserving it. 

  13. 2 dates/times may be reserved at a time. Once you secure a reservation for one date you will be able to go back in and reserve a second date. 

  14. Once you reserve a date it is your responsibility to contact the opposing manager and get his approval.  A reservation will be held for 48 hours only. 

  15. When you both agree on a date, return to this location and “click here to reschedule this game now”

  16. Once you reschedule you will not be able to change the date, so be sure that is what you want to do.

ALL GAMES MUST BE RESCHEDULED WITHIN 7 DAYS OR THE SPAA OFFICE WILL SELECT THE DATE AND NO BLACKOUT DATES WILL BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION FOR EITHER TEAM.
