Dear Parents and Coaches,
With the success of having our parade on Friday night in recent years we are going to continue this tradition. This year our opening night parade and opening ceremonies will be held on Friday, May
12, 2023. It will be a "Yukich Only Parade".
We ask that parents drop their
girls off at the football/soccer concession stand in the NW corner of Yukich Athletic Complex starting at 6:00pm. The concession stand is located behind Aldi and there is a parking area there.
The girls will meet their team, and at 6:30 the lot will be closed off by the Evergreen Park Police Department. The girls will march through the parking lot around to Yukich's Y1 field
for our Opening Ceremony. This will be followed by The Major League Baseball Hit, Pitch and Run Competition for age levels.
Please make plans to hang out and meet
the other EPGSL families for a great night of softball and community. The EPGSL concession stand will be open for refreshments.
Parents are asked to drop the girls off
and then try and spread out through the parking lot so that there are spectators all along the "route" and not just at the end. This will also make the parade more visible to anyone not there
for the parade as they are leaving. There will be signs up at the park early in the day informing everyone that no auto traffic will be allowed from 6:30 to 7:00 so everyone is aware of the
restrictions for the parade. EPGSL will make sure that we hold off the Opening Ceremonies for a little bit to make sure everyone can get there from their parade viewing position.
Girls can make signs and bring balloons to cheer on their favorite EPGSL
Stick around after the Opening Ceremonies for the MLB Hit, Pitch and Run
Competition. All EPGSL players ages 7-14 are welcome to participate if registered online prior to the competition. See the MLB Hit, Pitch and Run link on our website.
