Raptors Nation - Thank you for being apart of our Raptors inaugural 2017 season!! Together as an organization we are so proud of each and every single athlete, as well as grateful for the support throughout the season from our coaches and you as parents. Although we encompassed some challenging moments unexpectedly across the AYL this season, I would like to acknowledge how upstanding our organization is, the diligence and care put forth on your behalf, and the respect shared amongst other territories.
Special thanks to Scott Burgess and Jim Potter as these guys who support me for you volunteered above and beyond behind the scenes with AYL meetings, communication, scheduling, as well as umpiring. As an all volunteer board, I am proud of what we do for these athletes in our community while supporting a sport that we all enjoy seeing our athletes play.
If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback that you wish to share please feel free to reach out. We look forward to seeing you all in 2018!!
