WHAT TO BRING:

Parents: If your child is new to the League, you must bring a copy of your player(s) birth certificate. Also school residency form which is found below (exception: if you played on an all-star team in the 9/10 division or higher, no residency documents are required as we have your verified documents on file).

 

See the flier Residency and School Attendance Eligibility Requirements for details on what documentation is permissible.

 

Players: Players need to come in baseball/softball attire or other athletic wear and bring a glove, batting helmet, and bat. Boys are encouraged to wear an athletic cup. We will have additional gloves, helmets, and bats on hand if your child does not have this equipment.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Check-In Table: All Players must stop by the Check-In Table to turn in any paperwork and to get their player evaluation number sticker. This sticker will be placed on the player's back and must remain visible during the evaluation.

 

Evaluation Circuit: Each player will be given specific instructions at the field. In summary, each player will begin with a batting evaluation. They will receive live pitches and will be allowed to take 3 swings. On the 3rd swing, they will run from home plate to 2B. Once they reach 2B they will give their batting helmet to the volunteer that has their fielding glove. That player will then go to the SS position to receive 2-3 ground balls and will throw them to a fielder at 1B; then they will move into LF and receive 2-3 pop flys and throw those balls into the fielder at 2B. Each evaluation only takes 2-3 minutes, and the player is free to leave once they complete this circuit. 

 

Concessions: Snacks (chips/candy/popcorn/ice cream) and drinks (cold and hot) will be available at the concession stand both days.

 

NOTE: All players are expected to attend evaluations. Each Manager candidate will be viewing the evaluations for his/her division. We spend a considerable amount of volunteer time for evaluations because we strive to make our teams balanced and competitive for the enjoyment of all participants. It is very important for players to come during their respective division time in order to ensure that they will be evaluated by the managers for that division.

 

If your child does not attend evaluations, the Board will be in charge of rostering your player(s) via blind draw in order to ensure a competitive balance. This means that your player can not be drafted; instead, they will be randomly placed on a team.
