Player Evaluations

What are Player Evaluations?

  • Player evaluations consist of assessing players in their ability to catch, throw, field, hit and pitch.

Why do you hold player evaluations?

  • To ensure players are placed at the appropriate level and to create parity among the teams. Occasionally we have parents request a level of play for their son or daughter. Although we understand the many different reasons for the request, we encourage parents to trust this process and the value of skill evaluation. Over the years what we have discovered is through using the evaluation data for placement the player benefits, has higher success and a better overall experience.
