Spring 2018 Evaluation Information

Evaluations – All You Need to Know

Northside will hold the Cal Ripken Division evaluations on this Sunday, February 25th, from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  All players in the Rookie, Minor, and Major divisions will be evaluated with the goal of building competitively balanced teams in these divisions.  Players should come with a bat, glove, and water bottle and plan to show up at least 15 minutes early to warm up and line up.  With the uncertainty of the weather, it is possible that our evaluations could be inside or outside, so players are asked to bring both cleats and sneakers.  Evaluations are MANDATORY.  If you cannot make your appointed time, please contact the commissioner of your player’s division to discuss alternatives.  Commissioners’ emails are listed below.

*Due to the structure of the Jr Rookie Division, the Board has decided that evaluations are not necessary for this very young age group.  Also, we do NOT hold evaluations for our T-Ball division.    

Evaluations for the 13-15 division will be held on Friday, March 2nd at 6:30pm at Burley Middle School.  More information about times will be communicated next week.

Please read below for your player’s time.

Reminder about Player Evaluations

Mandatory player evaluations for Jr. Rookie, Rookie, Minor and Majors will be held on Sunday, February 25th.  We have to wait to see what the weather conditions will be before we can set the time and exact location.  If the weather is cooperative, we’ll hold evaluations outside starting earlier in the day on Carson Raymond Field.  If the weather is unfavorable, we’ll move inside to Sutherland Gym later in the day.   More information will be available the week prior to Evaluation Day.
For our 13-15 age group we will hold evaluations outside at Burley Middle School on Friday, March 2nd at 6:30 PM.
Evaluations are mandatory for all registered players.
