PLAYER EVALUATIONS

Dates and times are listed below. It is important that your child attends player evaluations unless they are returning to the baseball or softball age division they played in last year. On occasion, even players returning to the same age division will need to attend evaluations. The evaluation is a skill assessment only, and all children will be selected for a team. Bring your child’s glove with you. Bats and balls will be furnished.

We use these evaluations to assess player's current skill levels to help us create team parity. We understand that not all players will be able to attend. If your child can not attend, they will still be placed on a team.
