What to Expect at your Tryouts

What to expect at your tryouts

Age Level

Age cut-off is April 30th (or whatever your age is on April 30th, 2024) For example, if you are 14 years old right now and your birthday is March 3rd, you are considered a 15u because you turn 15 before May 1st.  Our high school (freshman - seniors) teams are typically made by graduation year.

What to bring ...

Tryouts are a relatively long day so make sure you bring water, snack and sun screen.  Please wear a full uniform including spikes and turf shoes.

What to expect ...

Expect a lot of players, good competition and a good baseball setting.  Each player will run a 60 yard dash (40 yard for 10u-13u), go through defensive work including outfield, infield, catcher pop times, batting practice and bullpens.

For some tryouts, after Day 1, we will post call back rosters for a Day 2 tryout that will include games.  Those "Call Back Games" will be posted on our site the same day as your Day 1 tryout.  Players will play a scrimmage where pitchers throw a controlled inning against hitters.

Posting Rosters ...

We will post rosters shortly after our last day of tryouts. 

Players who cannot make tryouts or who have to leave early ...

If you are a player who cannot make a tryout, you should come to the next closest age group to be graded out.  Please email me at: with your situation and we will make it work.

If you have to leave early, please let us know and we'll make sure we get you out of there as soon as possible - no problem !
