Player Evaluation Information

Although often referred to as “tryouts”, Player Evaluations are conducted merely to ensure your child ends up in the division that will allow them to excel and most importantly, have fun playing the game of baseball.

Evaluations help the league balance its teams during the subsequent Major and Minor division player draft. Balancing teams in each division of play promotes competitive balance and enhances the overall Little League experience for every child in the league. It is important to note that a child's performance in Player Evaluations will never cause a player to be excluded from participation in the league. All registered players will be placed on a team in a division suitable to their skill level.

2020 Player Evaluations will take place Saturday, March 14 and Saturday, March 21 at Starkey Park North, Field 2. Players only need to attend ONE of the evaluation sessions.

Please make plans to attend March 14, if at all possible. Our hope is to evaluate the majority of players on March 14, using March 21 to evaluate players who were unavailable on March 14. Times are listed below, but first, a few notes about who needs to attend and who does not need to attend. All ages listed below refer to a child’s “league age”, which is their age on August 31, 2020.
