Region 85 teams will be entitled to two practice sessions per week at either Heroes or LFSP (LFSP/Heroes 4:00-5:00pm M-F & all other permited fields on the Fields page 4:00- sunset, do not require a reservation). When you are no longer utilizing your slot please email me here so that your slot can be opened up for another team.
We are really short on space, thanks for being courteous, showing positive coaching in action. Please show good sportsmanship in sharing our lighted fields (approximately 40 by 50 or about 1/8 of the full field at LFSP).
To reserve a time slot, click on Practice Schedule (Above^) to see the most current time slots available (the slots are updated a couple times a day- not live), then select Reserve a Practice Time (via this link or on top left side of Practice Schedule page), the message should inlcude the coach name, division, day, FIELD and time slot.

Please revist the schedule by day's end to confirm your reservation went through.
Note: At Heroes Park, please remain 100 feet away from each baseball field. At LFSP, we have grass field 1 (closest to Portola Pkwy). If any issues arise, please share the space but do not take matters into your own hands, kindly remind them of the permit we hold (please ensure that you keep a copy of our permit in your bag) with the City; get their organization and contact name and email to Tim VanWoerkom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The UK Fall Clinic schedule is now available! Ideally, each team will take the opportunity to attend at least two of these valuable and unique sessions during the fall season.
To reserve a slot send an email to email@example.com.
Please submit both a first and a second choice with the coach name, division, team# and requested slot#s. The coordinator will assign slots on a first-come basis and post it on the website within 24 hours so you can see confirmation your slot has been assigned.
Coaches are required to attend the sessions with player medical release forms. It's a great opportunity to learn some new techniques and training exercises that you can use throughout the year.
If after 7:00 pm on Fridays any slots for the following week are unassigned, those slots will be opened to all coaches to sign up. Coaches may send a request to the UK Clinic Coordinator and they'll be assigned on a first-come basis. In this manner, you may attend as many clinics as you like.
