Uniforms: Uniform samples will be available for sizing at both evaluation days. We will have a list showing the sizes you've requested. This is your last opportunity to make changes!

T-Ball: T-Ball players do not attend these evaluations. Girls who are six years old (as of Jan 1 2019) and have already played at least one T-Ball season are eligible to attend the 8U evaluation.

10U & Middle School: If your daughter wants to play catcher and has her own catcher's gear, please bring it with you.

Uniforms: The uniforms are the same as last Fall. You will receive a uniform shirt only. We strongly recommend trying them on to verify the sizes you selected in the registration form. Samples are available at evaluations.  Pants and socks will be decided by individual teams.

Playing up: If your daughter is trying out for an older age group, she must attend an evaluation for the older age group and an evaluation for her registered age group. Whether a player can move up depends on two things: there must be room in the older age group, and she must be drafted by a coach in that age group. If there's no room, or she doesn't get drafted, she will stay in her registered age group.

 

Q & A

We've answered a number of frequently asked questions about evaluations below.

Why is there an evaluation?
Teams in 8U and up are formed by a draft. The evaluations give the head coaches an opportunity to see the players in a few basic drills before they draft their teams.

Do we need to attend both evaluation days?
No. A player only needs to attend once.

What equipment is necessary for the player evaluations?
At a minimum, players should wear athletic clothes and shoes. We recommend baseball/softball pants and cleats (soccer cleats are acceptable). We are limiteIf she doesn't own a glove, bat, or batting helmet, she can borrow league equipment during the evaluation.

What drills will the players be asked to do?
Just the basics: running the bases, fielding grounders and fly balls, hitting and pitching. The drills will be age and skill-level appropriate.

My daughter doesn't know how to pitch. Does she really have to pitch at evaluations?
Yes, every girl needs to throw a few pitches. It's OK if she doesn't know how. Yes, the coaches will be looking for girls who can already pitch, but they're also looking to see who they might be able to develop into pitchers. Keep in mind that the league offers pitching clinics throughout the season, and we want to develop as many pitchers as we can.

Will players be sliding during the player evaluations?
They won't be required to slide, but they can if they want to.

What happens if we don't attend evaluations?
Your player will be placed on a waiting list. She will only be assigned to a team if we still have roster spots available in her registered age group.

Does my T-Ball player need to attend?
No. You're still welcome to come by as we'll have uniform samples available, and we'll also be accepting payment for registration fees. The only reason a player who's already registered in Tball would need to attend is if she's trying out for 8U.

Can I register on the day of evaluations?
No. You must register online by 6pm the night before. We will not be accepting player registrations at the evaluations.

Can my player try out for an older age group?
Yes. She must attend the evaluation for her registered age group and the evaluation for the older age group. If she doesn't get drafted onto a team in the older age group, she'll enter the draft for her registered age group. Players must check in at the desk prior to each age group evaluation.

Is this a try out? Is there a chance my player won't be placed on a team?
No, every player that attends evaluations is guaranteed a place on a team in her registered age group. It's only considered a "try out" for players hoping to play in an older age group.

What's Next?
We'll form teams in the 8U through Middle School age groups after the second day of player evaluations, and then you'll be contacted by your head coach. T-Ball will be formed after the older teams. Practices will start soon after the teams are formed.

Contact   if you have any questions.

 

Coaches Wanted

We still need head coaches in all age groups. For the 8U through Middle School age groups in particular, if we don't have enough coaches by the draft date, league representatives will draft additional teams as necessary to keep the team sizes reasonable, and the parents on these teams will have to take over. Now is the time to volunteer so that you can do your own evaluation of the players and draft the team you want. Also, if you'd like your daughter to play up an age group, coaching a team is the only way to guarantee that will happen.
