Tryouts

Our goal is to provide a tryout environment that is fair to all players and allows them to demonstrate their abilities to a group of neutral parities. The tryout drills are predetermined and are intended to demonstrate specific skills for the evaluators on a point scale. 

Tryouts will be held at Ojibway Park September 15th, upon signing in at her age appropriate time, each girl will be assigned a number. She will then go into the complex to be evaluated, Parents are not allowed inside the complex during the evaluation process. All evaluations are recorded based on the numbers assigned at check-in. Each girl will be evaluated in the following general skill areas: Infield, Outfield, Throw, Catch & Hitting. Girls will have the option to tryout for pitcher & catcher positions upon completion of the general stations. The girls (based on the numbers assigned at the beginning of the process) are ranked based on their evaluations.
