For Parents & Players

Answers to many common questions can be found in our Parent/Player Handbook

Please click the icon below to view this informative document!

Parent Involvement

Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.

Volunteer Information

All Forest Lake Fastpitch Families will be required to volunteer for one DIBS session per family. Those who opt out can have their volunteer check cashed, but we would prefer the assistance. 

Available volunteering opportunities will become posted on our "DIBS" page once available. 

Some volunteer examples are below:

  • Fundraiser sorting and handout
  • Fenway field clean-up day
  • Fast and Furious Tournament
    • Field raking/chalking
    • Working in the concessions trailer
    • Set up/take down tents and/or dugout canopies
    • et cetera
  • Parent Rep
    • Possible duties: emailing/coordinating schedules or team photos, getting parent signatures on tournament forms, importing events into SportsEngine, et cetera

Fundraiser Information

All FLAFA Families (8U - 16U) are required to fundraise up to a certain dollar value that is set by the board each year. 

More information about fundraising will be coming soon!

Sports Engine Help for Parent & Athletes

Parents and athletes need to manage their SportsEngine accounts to ensure they get the most out of their Forest Lake Area Fastpitch Association experience during each sporting season. With their accounts properly configured, athletes and their families will receive communications according to their preferences and be able to complete registrations more efficiently.  SportsEngine has created a Team Management Guide for Parents and Athletes that will help our members with frequently asked questions about our website and mobile app.
