INFORMATION ABOUT EVALUATIONS
T-Ball players are put on teams with children from around their neighborhood. Boys and girls in all other age groups go through an evaluation and are selected to teams in a draft as to even out all the teams. *Please refer to the evaluation schedules on the back of this letter and note the number your child should wear on his/her back to evaluations. NO OTHER NOTICES WILL BE SENT.
Players keep their uniform after the season is over. Uniforms are passed out during the last week of April. Your coach will keep you informed as to the date/time of uniform handout. Contact your coach immediately should your child have uniform issues.
The 2018 season will extend from the beginning of May to the end of July, with some leagues starting and ending before others. The length of specific leagues will be based on the number of games to be played and the start of the league. This will be reflected in league specific schedules given out by team coaches.
