Please note, SLL has transitioned from a grade-based to an age-based structure for both evaluations and league formation.This change has been implemented to conform with Little League International rules, the governing entity with which SLL is affiliated.An age-based structure has been demonstrated to be a more successful construct for skill development, competition and safety.
The following players MUST be evaluated:
Players baseball ages 13 and 14 (as calculated above) who wish to be evaluated to play on the 13U and 14U travel teams.
All players baseball age 10-12 (as calculated above) must be evaluated. The evaluations are necessary for placement in the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions, for forming balanced teams in both Atlantic and Pacific, and for those who wish to be considered for Travel teams. The Atlantic Division is Scarsdale Little League’s premier league for 10-12 years old and offers a more competitive and challenging experience than the Pacific Division.
Players baseball age 9 (as calculated above) who are highly skilled and interested in the challenge of playing up with older players in our Pacific League (which is comprised primarily of 10 and 11 year olds). Please note that only a very few 9 year olds will be invited to play in the Pacific League.
We are planning to have 10u – 14u Travel Teams.

13 & 14 yr olds interested in playing 13/14U Travel
Please note that if you are 13 or 14 and wish to play Junior League but not travel, you do not need to attend any evaluation session.

Players are required to attend both sessions on October 29th and November 5th.
Players will be asked to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the tryout session to allow for proper warmup and registration.
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 Hardball NY. Many of these professionals have played professional and/or college baseball and are skilled with evaluation criteria.
Travel teams and Atlantic teams will be selected based on a combination of the Evaluation results and prior coach ratings.
