Important March Dates by Program

Late registration period is now over and we are moving toward team formation and pre-season work on the fields.  Next up: March 14th is tryout day for our major and minor programs .  There, coaches will get a look at players for placement at the right level followed by the drafts intended to fairly distribute skills across teams.

TRYOUT DAY, MARCH 14

Major Baseball:  8:00am - 9:30am – Saturday March 14th
New players and those league age 10-11-12 who played minors last year must report.
Returning Major level players do NOT need to report. 
(For baseball, Little League "league age" is player age as of August 31 of this year.)

Minor Baseball:  10:00aom - 11:30am – Saturday March 14th
CHANGE:  All returning league age 8-9 as well as new league-age 8-9 coming up from Coach-Pitch must report.  This is due to changing the number of teams and adding new coaches so all teams will be re-drafted to try to best maintain player skill balances across the league.  League-age 8 year olds who have played at least 1 year of Coach-Pitch should try out to be placed either in Minors or in Coach-Pitch - level assignment will depend on coaches assessment of the best placement for continued skill development.

Major Softball:  12:00noon – 1:00pm – Saturday March 14th
New players and those league age 10-11-12 who played minors last year must report.  
Returning Major level players do NOT need to report.
(For softball, Little League "league age" is player age as of December 31 of last year.)

Minor Softball:  1pm - 2pm – Saturday March 14th
League-age 8-9 coming up from Coach-Pitch must report and any new players ages 8-9.
