  • Grasshopper – players aged 7-8 and some select 6 year olds.  Players aged 8 may play up to biddy level only with a recommendation from their previous coach as well as 2 year of grasshopper experience or attending Biddy Tryouts and scoring on a level consistent with biddy aged players.

 *  Players are eligible to play up to their grade level without regard to their birthdate

** Leagues selected for each age group will vary from year to year to assure proper competition levels for our players

 

Note:  Tryouts are an open competition to field the most competitive team in the highest levels that each age group will participate.  Unless notified prior to the selection of the team(s) (at the completion of all tryouts), players participating in the tryout process understand that they may be selected to a travel team.  If selected to a travel team and the player declines, the request of the player will be fulfilled and they will be placed in the non-competitive league for the season.

 

Fall Baseball – Player Placement – If leagues are splitting into competitive and rec levels for the fall season, player selections will be based off of spring scores as well as coach input from the spring season.  If a volunteer wants to run fall tryouts – then scores from tryouts will be used to help with player selection.  If there are no tiered levels of play, players will be divided into teams through coach selection.
