Player evaluations are critical for establishing draft pools. These draft pools allow managers to draft balanced teams, which will make for a more enjoyable and competitive season. While player evaluations are often called “tryouts,” it is important to note that every player will be placed on a team. If a player does not attend an evaluation session, that player cannot be drafted to a team, but instead will be randomly assigned to a team within the lowest division the player qualifies for after the draft.
Who Needs to Attend?
Any player who will be playing in a competitive division (10U and up), or any player wanting to play up in a division. For example, an 8-year-old wanting to play in the 10 U division would be required to attend a player evaluation session.
Date and Location of Player Evaluations:
January 21, 2023, from 9:00AM – 1:00pm
January 28, 2023, from 1:30PM to 3:30PM
All evaluations will take place at Phelan Elementary. Players only need to attend one of the sessions.
What Should the Players Bring?
Players should bring their glove, cleats, and a hat. They are encouraged to bring a bat and helmet if they have them. Boys should wear a protective cup. All players should dress in comfortable athletic clothing.
What to Expect
Players will be evaluated in running, agility, fielding ground balls, fielding flyballs, throwing and hitting.
