PLAYER EVALUATIONS FOR 2015
FEB 7th Marlboro High Gym
As we prepare for our upcoming Spring softball evaluations on Feb 7th at the Marlboro High School gym we are continuing with the way we did it last year. Pitching and Catching are critical skills, yet they are also the most difficult to evaluate. We are going to include special tryout sessions just for aspiring pitchers and catchers.
To do this, the following will be the sequence of tryouts: We are only holding tryouts one day this year so please make every effort to attend as it will go a long way in dividing up the teams as equally as possible.
9:00am-10:00am Minors evaluations (All NEW Minor league players must attend, even siblings if you are new to minors this year. If you played in Minors spring season last year, you don’t need to attend)
10:00am-10:45am Minors pitchers/catchers (regardless of whether or not you were in Minors last year, if you want to pitch or catch you should attend) Note: NEW MINOR PLAYERS ONLY. You still need to be evaluated as an overall player so you will need to attend evalautions between 9am-10:00am and stay for the pitching/catching session if you are a pitcher/catcher.
10:45-11:30am Majors pitchers/catchers. (regardless of whether you were in majors last year, if you want to pitch and or catch you should attend) NOTE: NEW MAJOR PLAYERS ONLY You will still need to be evaluated as an overall player so you will need to stay for overall evals after pitching/catching session.
11:30am-1:00pm Majors (all NEW Major league players ages 13-15 if you are new to the league or moving up from Minors you must attend) If you played Summer or Fall Ball last year but are new to Spring Ball this year you need to attend as well.
The main goal of the pitching/catching tryouts is simple: Let the coaches see who is interested, and how they have progressed.
This will lead to better decisions during the draft and to better balanced teams.
Thank you, we look forward to seeing you at tryouts!
NOTE: Evaluations are done on a first come, first served basis. We take the girls in groups of 5 and run them through a short series of drills, hitting, fielding, throwing and running. It takes approximately 20 minutes per group. Once they are done they can leave, they do not have to be there for the whole time unless they are also going to do the pitching/catching evals.
If they have their own bat, and or helmet they are welcome to bring them if not we will provide them for use. We will also have catchers gear for those being evaluated as catchers They should have a glove and wear sneakers, NO CLEATS. Gym type clothing is also best as they will be moving around and running as well.
If you have any questions or are unsure if you need to attend please contact me Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for registration to guarantee a spot is Feb 1st. Evaluations will be held Feb 7th for those required to go so it is important to get your registration in before Feb 1.
