FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
Dear SEA Families, 
Did you know that once the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620, they lost almost 50% of the original 102 colonists? With the help of the Indians, the remaining Pilgrims survived the harsh winter and yielded a bountiful harvest that sparked a three-day celebration, a ‘thanksgiving’ festival. Today, for many of us, the meaning of Thanksgiving usually includes feasting a delicious meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn and pumpkin pie. Alongside our delicious feast, Thanksgiving brings long weekends, Thanksgiving football games, family reunions, black Friday shopping, and the beginning of the Christmas festivities.  [Click here to finish.]

BASEBALL TRAVEL TEAM
Training and practice have a meaningful impact on the development of a player. Games are great and we all enjoy them.  However, there are not enough repetitions in games to develop the player to be a
better player and an athlete that can play at the next level. Practice time is when improvement occurs. Click here for our philosophy. Click here for our schedule and here to sign up.
