I was able to add 4 practices starting this Thursday March 30, 2023 at 5:30-6:30 and every Thursday until April 20, 2023 at the same time on field R1. Below is a screenshot with R1 circled for reference :)  I will reach out tomorrow with some standard things to consider for practices and more information on many other things : )

Tampa Bay Ray's Kickoff!
by posted 03/26/2023

Ray’s Parents!

My name is John Helbling and I have volunteered to be the head coach this year! I will be joined by Ryan Buszek our assistant coach!

As you may be aware by now.. we are the Tampa Bay Rays! We just had our coaches meeting and we are ready to kick off the season! This is the my second year as a coach. I am excited to meet everyone new and see those who will be joining me again from last seasons ragball team :) Ryan and I coached basketball together this winter and decided to do T-Ball this year together too! We will do our best to make it a blast for everyone!!

My cell phone is 513-668-7344 so feel free to call or text. You can also reach me via the borosports.com website.

Again, we had our coaches meeting today so I wanted to pass on some information 😊

  1. All games/practices will be held at 3500 Lower Springboro Rd, Springboro, OH 45005. Field will be R1 or R4 or overflow grass areas R2 and R3…
  2. Practices – Ryan and I both agree one practice per week will be sufficient for this age group. We could add up to one more practice a week if need be. We think Wednesday or Thursday nights 6:30 - 7:30 based on availability would be the best days and times.
  3. We will be scheduling practices tonight once they open up the portal! You should emails from the Borosports.com website tonight regarding the practice dates and times.
  4. Opening day is 4/22/2023. I will send out more detailed information on this soon. In the meantime, you can check out the schedule here: http://www.borosports.com/Default.asp?org=borosports.com#533586
  5. Dick’s Sporting Goods Discount Days – If you need equipment (ie glove, pants, cleats, helmets with a mask) this would be the time to get them. The coupon is good March 31 - April 3 for 20% off. My understanding is we will get an email with this coupon soon. This coupon can be used online or for in store purchases.
  6. I need to ask if anyone would like to volunteer to be a Team Parent. This would be another coaching position. Duties would be bench coach, team snacks, basket coordination. Here is the link on the website explaining the position - http://www.borosports.com/Page.asp?n=29701&org=borosports.com
  7. The Game Schedule is posted - http://www.borosports.com/Schedule.asp?org=borosports.com .. You might need to select Tee Ball > Tampa Bay from the filter
  8. Start thinking about what we would like to do for a team basket this year. This will be for our team to donate for the raffle on opening day. I will send out a more detailed email soon regarding this.

This is all I have for now. Please reach out if have any questions or would like to become a Team Parent. Thank you so much for your patience as I was waiting for this meeting to send out our initial email. I will be in touch very soon with more information!

My best,

John Helbling
