The Destrehan Booster Club, it's Board of Directors and the entire community

thank you for your continued support of youth recreation.


Parents please remember that if you are not the head coach or two of the assistant coaches that

have completed the proper paperwork required by the Board of Directors, you should not be interfering

with the conducting of practices or games for any sport. We ask that you let these coaches coaching. We

are asking that all parents (mothers, fathers, and grandparents) to stay off the practice fields while the

teams are practicing. The coaches out here need all the space and time with each player. They do not need

interference from parents. Please remember that all of our coaches have volunteered their time and we

appreciate that. These coaches do have baseball experience and have the best interest of each player in

hand. Parents are not allowed on the field during games. There should only be a head coach and his

assistant coaches allowed on the field at all times including practices and games. So if you are not the

head coach or an assistant coach please do not stand on the side lines or in the dug out with the players.

The head coach will ask for assistants when needed from parents.

So parents please have a little faith in the coaches and let your children enjoy baseball/softball/tball.

Thank you! If any parent has concerns, please contact your coordinator for your age group.


Track Registration will be held on Saturday, April 26 at 10:00 am at the Destrehan High School
