Strike Zone practice field parking instructions:

Two fields are on the private property of Strike Zone coaches and in their yards and neighborhoods. They have been kind enough to let Strike Zone build ball fields and use their yard for our teams practices. With that comes some responsibility and appreciation for that.
If players and parents do not follow the expectation they will not be allowed to come to practice and then will not be invited back to the team next year. I cannot loose the right to a ball field for all teams to practice because we do not follow a drop off pick up procedure.

Harding Field: Strike Zone instructors and Head Coach only can park at the metal out building in left field. park to the sides and not in front of any Bay doors. the workers need access to get in and out of the building with trucks and trailers.Everyone else park at Horizone Elementary School 7210 Chouteau, Shawnee KS. if you are dropping off do so at Horizone Elementary. do not drop off or pick up in front of the field. the ball field is located past the tree line on the south west corner of the school.

Smith field: 5959 Woodland rd Shawnee KS: do not pull in to or park in the neighbors driveway on the south side of the house that goes back by the field along the property line. all cars will drop off in the driveway and allow they son to walk to the back ball field. if the driveway is full make a circle in the neighborhood across the street until there is an available space in the driveway. do not park in the street. Shawnee cops are up and down that road constantly and will ticked you and tow you for parking or stopping in the bicycle lane.

Smith field practice rules: there will be balls that go in the neighbors property to the south. make sure they all get picked up. They do not want to hit baseballs with their mower. coaches will have to pick them up. there is a large gravel pile that is not safe for the kids to be on and the property owner does not want any players past the gravel road near the rock pile or metal out building.

Turner field: address 5805 Metropolitian ave KC KS there is a full parking lot to park in.  Field is on top of the hill on the south side of Metropolitian ave directly across from the Turner USD 202 maintenance building
