ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS/TRYOUTS

Important!!! Please note that T-Ball players and 6 year old baseball players DO NOT assess. Challenger players, and 13-16 year old baseball and softball do not assess.

6 year olds that are wanting to play softball MUST assess to be considered for the Farm Division.


We reference "league playing age" quite often. That sometimes is NOT the players real age. To determine your child's playing age, please click on "player registration" and then click on "player

 league age calculator".

Who:

Baseball and softball players that are league age 7 to 12, should plan to attend assessments. 6 year softball players and 7 year old baseball players must attend if they wish to play at the Farm level.  If you have players that are borderline ages for Divisions (7 year olds Rookie/Farm, 8 year olds Farm/Minor, 10 year olds Minor/Major, and 12 year olds Majors/Intermediate), they will need to attend if they wish to potentially make the highest division possible.

Examples Below of Ages and Divisions they can play in:

A 7 year old can play Rookie or they can play Farm.

An 8 year old could play Farm or Minors.

A 9 year old could play Minors OR Farm.

A 10 year old could play Minors or Majors.

An 11 year old could play Majors or Minors.

Lots of fluctuation can happen. Remember, a player can not play at a division LOWER than they did the previous year. If they wish to achieve the HIGHEST division possible for the upcoming year, they MUST attend 50% of assessments.


Where:

All 2022 assessments are at the Nelson Sports Complex (Hood View Park) at 16223 SE Stadium Way, Clackamas, OR 97015. Email [email protected] if you have any questions.


When:

 February 20th and February 27th - See Assessment Schedule Tab for information.

Important Items to Know:

  • To ensure that we have your player on our printed assessment sheets, we ask that you have the player registered no later than the Thursday before the Sunday Assessment.  We can NOT guarantee that walk-ins day of will be included to assess due to high volume. Online registration "may" be turned off for divisions above Tee Ball during assessment weekends.
  •  
  • Assessments are vital for the league in determining proper placement of players at their respective levels. Minors and up-- use the assessment process for drafting players. Players are welcome to attend BOTH assessment sessions.
  •  
  •  If a player does NOT attend either assessment session, they will be blind drafted (Minors and Majors ONLY). Meaning they are placed on a team and a teams Manager/Coach can not select them personally.

    Again, PLEASE make sure you verify your child's "league age" on the official Little League website at the following link - https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/determine-league-age/

    We run assessments in groups, so check-in for a group is vital as we cannot accommodate players that show up in the middle of a group session.


If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you,
