Evaluations for Spring 2024 will take place on January 19th for 6 year-olds and January 20th and 21st for the rest. Your child will be assigned a date and time in advance of evaluation weekend.
All children in the PPBA program must be evaluated before being placed on a team. The evaluations are simple: players must field a few ground balls in the infield, shag a few fly balls in the outfield, and swing against a pitching machine. The evaluations don't take much time, but the time spent at the evaluation is primarily determined by when your child starts the process and how many players are in front of you.
IMPORTANT: Players must bring their baseball gloves and bats, wear a baseball hat, comfortable sports clothes, and (preferably) sports cleats.
This day allows the PPBA Board of Directors to evaluate each player's baseball skills and experience to help provide for a balanced allocation of players to each team. *
* It is crucial that the kids arrive already warmed up because there won’t be time or space to do it at the park.
* There will be hundreds of kids trying out this weekend, so once your child is finished, they should plan on leaving the park so that we don’t have too much congestion throughout the day.
