2017 Brooklyn Bulldogs 14 Showcase
Balance of Pre-season workouts (through March 31)
Since the weather looks to make fields unplayable or the weather simply too cold, we are not going to be outdoors this coming week: Monday – Friday March 20-24 (and possibly the following week subject to the weather) and the workout schedule in the evenings at PS230 workouts will remain as before – no change.
So to be clear, the evening PS 230 workout schedule that we have been operating under remains unchanged from March 20-24. For the following week, March 27-31 we will let you know by the end of next week.
There will be no further practices or lessons on weekends at K142, PS58, PS177 & Ps230 starting March 25-26.
If the weather breaks, we can use Van Voorhees during the weeks prior to April 1 (grass fields are not open until April 1). It will be up to the manager to make that decision. The teams allocated to those fields prior to April 1 are listed below as it will be same for the spring season.
Season Scheduling (April 1+)
Once we go onto the fields, the weekday night schedule at PS230 will change to the following (starting Monday April 3):
Mondays: 10 Orange 6:00-8pm
Tuesdays: 10 Green 6-7:30; 12 Green 7:30-8:50pm
Wednesdays: 12 Orange 6-8:00pm
Thursdays: 13 Orange 6-7:30pm
Fridays: 9 Orange 6-7:30; 13 Green 7:30-8:50pm
Tournament Schedules have been provided to you by your admins. We won’t go into that here.
Spring schedules for leagues and our internal play during the week and some weekends is still uncertain as we have to rely on the other organizations to create their schedules or to make teams available for us to play games with them.
For the Bulldogs teams who are playing many tournaments on the weekends, on the non-tournament weekends and weekdays they will be scheduled in our in-house games or against opponents we are working on obtaining. Other Bulldog teams are playing in outside leagues.
9 Orange – we’ve requested games for Saturday no earlier than 1pm
10 Green – – we’ve requested games for Saturday any time
These games are supposed to be in Brooklyn or nearby boroughs.
Kiwanis – 12 Green – doubleheaders on Saturdays, Weekday game on Mondays. Most games are in Bay Ridge, near the VA Hospital and Poly Prep.
13 Green: Sunday doubleheaders in WBA (except Saturdays 5/13, 5/20 and 6/10 at Parade Grounds 2pm start time). For weekday games in the PPBA Super Bantam division, we have requested Tuesdays.
Internal Play (or against opponents we arrange):
We have set aside the following days for this category of play starting the first week of April through the end of June.
To that end, we are independently booking games with other organizations or using the slots to play between our teams (when they are not playing in tournaments). Teams will be grouped for the full time period (such as 1-7pm). We will allocate them to specific times within the full time period as soon as we can (such as 1pm-3:30pm and 3:30pm-6pm, for example):
Saturdays Van Voorhees 1-7pm: 10 Orange, 11 Orange and 12 Orange
Sundays at Van Voorhees 1-7pm: 9 Orange, 10 Green
Sundays at Bush Terminal 2-6pm: 13 Orange
Mondays at Parade Grounds 6-8pm 13 Orange
Tuesdays 5:30pm+ at Van Voorhees field: 10 Orange & 11 Orange
Wednesdays 5:30pm+ at Van Voorhees field: 9 Orange & 10 Green
Wednesdays 5:30pm+ at Van Voorhees field: 12 Orange & 12 Green
This is the proposed layout of our schedules. It IS NOT set in stone. It is to give you an idea of what we would like based on many factors including managers’ availability. We’d like to be more specific but are not in control of the other organizations that we need to complete the schedules. You will be informed of the final schedules as soon as we know.
Thanks for your patience and understanding. Unfortunately, we appear to way ahead of the scheduling curve among our opponents, especially since the season starts for most leagues on April 1. Many leagues are still determining who is playing with them.
