There will be no sort-outs for the 2017 season due to the fact that unforeseen circumstances have made the facility unavailable. Teams will be formed using the information that the league and its coaches already have in hand.
The first step towards this balance is a sort out. Sort outs are not try outs, and are only applicable to the Novice, Junior and Senior divisions.
|Rookie & Novice||Saturday April 22, 2017 – 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM|
|Junior||Saturday April 22, 2017 – 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM|
|Intermediate & Senior||Saturday April 22, 2017 – 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM|
The dates/times for sort outs for the 2017 season will be posted as soon as they are available. Please check back, they will be in April.
Skill areas station order:
Each player will be put through 5 key skill areas and given a mark out of 10.
|Distance and power|
|Balls thrown straight on and over both shoulders|
|3||THROWING FOR DISTANCE AND ACCURACY|
|Arm strength and ability to get it to another person|
|Balls batted directly at players and to either side|
|Speed and ability to touch base while turning the corner.|
Coaches will then use this score along with requests to play with friends to create teams for the season.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE LEAGUE TO SEE WHICH TEAM YOUR CHILD IS ON – A COACH WILL CALL YOU – BUT IT MAY BE THE NIGHT BEFORE. Please check back for schedules on this website that will describe which game night early in May that the season will begin. These will be provided as soon as the city confirms the fields that we will have available to the league this year. The intent is to have teams that are balanced.
