Player Skills Assessment

 
For all baseball players ages 9-12 who were not on a Major Division roster in Spring 2020
(if your child was not drafted to a majors team in the regular season they must attend the assessment) a player skills assessment for baseball will be held on Sunday February 28, 2021 from 10:00am - 3:00pm (makeup is Monday, March 1st from 7:00pm - 8:00 pm) at ATI (Athlete Training Institute) located at 14 Alcap Ridge Cromwell, CT.

All players will be evaluated in hitting, throwing and fielding drills by Major and Intermediate Division coaches.  Regardless of the division of play a child intends on playing all players MUST ATTEND the Skills Assessment.  The process allows each coach to assess the basic skills of each eligible player to aid in the player selection process. This process is designed to promote equity and competitive balance across each league. 

Baseball Players not selected for the Majors division will be assigned to the Intermediate division.
