Shelby Youth Ball Tryouts THIS FALL

Dear Shelby Softball and Baseball Parents,

Please see below for important information for tryouts for tournament teams for Summer 2023:

Evaluations will occur THIS FALL on Saturday, Oct. 15 and Sunday, Oct. 16 at Hillview Fields (time TBA) rain date October22/23 for the following teams:

*10U softball

*12U softball

*14U softball

*16U softball (this is a new league that will be added next season)

*12U baseball

*13U baseball

*14U baseball 

The rationale for fall tryouts is:

- Having players tryout in October will allow less teams to be evaluated in the spring. This will negate the need to schedule and reschedule multiple times as we had to do this year. 

- Having teams picked in the fall will allow coaches the opportunity to look for and sign up for tournaments in the fall and winter months.

- Teams can work out together during open gyms and non mandatory practices throughout the fall and winter months

- Registration for fall tryouts will open on September 2nd. An email will be sent out when the link is live. Your child MUST be registered and paid in the computer system to be evaluated on Oct. 15 and 16 (rain date Oct 22/23)- no exceptions! If a player is not selected for a tournament team, registration information and fee can remain in the system for a non-tournament team, or a refund can be requested.

-Registration will open early in 2023 for players not wishing to be on travel teams. 

Important: If you child is not interested in being on a tournament team your child does NOT need to attend the fall evaluation. Registration for non-tournament teams will be available in early 2023.

Watch your email for more details in the coming weeks and thank you for your interest in Shelby Youth Ball!
