5. Other Important Information

While we appreciate your investment in your child, all tryouts will be closed to spectators to avoid additional pressure and distraction for all children.

If at the end of tryouts a child is released from a team we strongly encourage the child to continue to work on their skills and come back next year. Many of the area recreational departments run baseball and softball opportunities as well as local baseball and softball camps.

If you would like to speak to a coach after the tryout process is over you can contact the athletic department at 775-8730 and I can assist you to reaching a coach.
