Please read this entire email message as it contains detailed information regarding Tryouts for Summer and Fall Travel Teams.  

 

Please note that on Thursday, May 28th the SLL will be conducting TRYOUTS FOR SUMMER TRAVEL AND FALL TRAVEL teams (details below). All players wishing to play in the Summer on a 8U/9U/10U/11U/12U or in the Fall on a 10U/11U/12U/13U who would like to play on a Summer or Fall Travel team are required to attend the tryout session.  Getting a jump start on the process will help the League better prepare for the Summer and Fall season and give the players a better opportunity to make decisions about their Summer and Fall plans. 

***Please note in years past SLL held Fall Travel Team tryouts in early September.  This year SLL will be combining the Summer Travel and Fall Travel Team tryouts into this one spring session held on Thursday, May 28th.  As such, no separate Fall Travel Team Tryouts will be held in September.  Please note this significant change from past years.

What to Bring and Wear?

Players should bring a glove, cleats, bat (if they want), and water.  Prior Scarsdale Travel and club team (e.g., House of Sports, Pro Swing, New York Nine, Hardball, Frozen Ropes, etc.) uniforms, hats, and gear are not allowed. Players violating this rule will be asked to remove the item(s). 

Checking in

Only registered players may participate and will be provided with a numbered bib to wear for identification.

Please arrive 30-minutes prior to your tryout session for processing and to allow time to warm up.

Evaluations

Players will be evaluated on several skills—including hitting, fielding, throwing and speed by third-party professionals. Additionally, players may be voluntarily evaluated on either pitching or catching. The evaluators are members of New York Nine Baseball, the same organization that has run the clinics sponsored by the Scarsdale Little League for the past year. Many of these professionals have played professional and/or college baseball and are skilled with evaluation criteria.

 

Scarsdale Little League’s goal is to field competitive travel teams that maximize player development.
