Reminder 6-8 yr old Makeup tryouts, and WHEN WE find out what team your player is on
Reminder – 6 to 8 yr old makeup tryouts tonight, Tuesday the 14th:
Where? Jackie Robinson Park/Center — 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave
6:00-7:00pm: 6-8 year olds (6-YEAR OLDS ONLY IF TRYING OUT FOR AA — IF 6 AND T-BALL, THEN NO NEED TO TRYOUT)
Residency and age verification will be available as well both days. See past “Announcements” on our homepage for what this entails. If you have any questions, please contact President David Mathias firstname.lastname@example.org
Question: My player was sick this week – do they still have to tryout?
Answer: Not for TeeBall. But we need to make some general rating for most of the 6-10 year olds if possible for the AA and AAA Divisions. Please contact League President David Mathias email@example.com regarding scheduling an alternative trout.
Question: When will I know what team my player is on?
Answer: Majors (11-12 yr olds) and AAA (9-11 yr olds) do a formal draft of players to insure parity in teams.
The Majors draft is this week — the 2014 Majors Managers will contact players as early as end of this week regarding being part of their teams. Practices can actually start as early end of this week. Don’t panic if you hear nothing through the weekend as the Mangers need to balance work/coaching etc to provide your players with the optimum experience on the field. Assume at least 2 practices a week.
The AAA Minors draft is next week — the number of teams is still being worked-out as of this writing. Usually by Feb 1 your player will be notified by a AAA Manager regarding being part of the team, and possible practice schedule. Assume 1-2 practices a week.
For AA and TeeBall — Teams are assigned, and that assignment may not be made until Feb 1 (and even mid-Feb for TeeBall). Once we hit February 1, we will send out another information email regarding AA and TeeBall.
Thank you all for reading and being part of our Happy League!
