Evaluation Day and Spring Travel Team Tryouts for Grades 2/3/4 and 5/6 on October 29&30

Attention all players, Grades 2nd-6th, Needham Softball will be holding Spring Softball Evaluation Day in OCTOBER!!!

Evaluations are used to ensure all spring recreational league team rosters are fair and balanced. The criteria will also be used to establish Spring/Summer Tournament Teams.

You must already be registered to play spring softball with Needham Baseball and Softball in order to attend Evaluation Day and to tryout for a travel team. 

Dates & Times: 

Saturday 10/29

Sunday 10/30

Grades 2-4

12:00-2:00pm

Grades 5&6

2:00-4:00pm

Place:  Claxton Field Equipment: Glove, Bat, Helmet, Cleats (if you have them)

It is important for ALL players to attend one of the sessions. All players wishing to play spring recreational softball will be placed on a team. No one is turned away. We encourage beginners to register and attend. You do not need previous experience to play spring recreational softball. Only players wishing to tryout for travel teams will be evaluated on tryout criteria. Players trying out for travel teams must be registered and play on a recreational spring team to be eligible. 

Schedules and Commitments:

Grades 2/3/4 can expect to play twice a week, in town with a third practice day.  Grades 5/6 should expect to play twice a week in a travel league in the surrounding communities.

7&8 Grade Softball will be a full Needham Public School sponsored program and will be handled through the Needham Schools Athletic Department. There will be no 7/8th grade NBS evaluations. We will monitor interest and our numbers to see if we can support a secondary, recreational team once the middle school team is set.

Reminder - SPRING REGISTRATION OPEN - TRYOUTS - SEPTEMBER 24-25

 

NEEDHAM BASEBALL 2017 SPRING LITTLE LEAGUE REGISTRATION OPEN AUGUST 15th

TRYOUTS - SEPTEMBER 24-25

 

Reminder returning Majors players must register by Sept. 23rd 2016


The following applies to those planning to play in Needham Baseball's AAA or Majors baseball programs in Spring 2017.  There will be a separate email for Babe Ruth Registration and tryout dates.

In order to tryout for the 2017 Spring season, the player must be registered by Sept 23, 2016 using this link.
 
If you are planning to coach in the 2017 Spring Season, please register yourself as a coach using Coaches & Volunteer Registration on the bottom of the page on this link.  
 
Eligibility for tryouts is based on "Little League Age" or LL Age.  Use the Chart below to determine your Little League Player’s Age.

The age chart looks a little funny for the 2005 players.  This is because Little League has changed the age cutoff date from April 30th to August 31st.

If you want to read more about the age change go to: Click here

Players who are trying out for Majors do not need to tryout for AAA.  However you can attend both tryouts if you want to. 

All other players are required to tryout (even eleven year olds and returning AAA players).  We do this so that we may properly balance the teams.  

If you cannot make your tryout time slot you may show up at any time during the tryouts.  We use the schedule above to alleviate long lines. 

If you cannot make the Saturday tryout you can attend the Majors Tryout on Sunday September 25th.  Just mention when signing up at the tryout that you are here for AAA tryout. 

If you cannot make either tryout date there will be a supplemental tryout.  Contact Dave Lambert at   for Date and time.

Notes:  Players who were in Majors last year do not need to tryout for Majors again this year.   All other players are required to tryout (even twelve year olds), so that we can properly balance the teams.  

If you cannot make your tryout slot you may show up at any time during the tryouts.  We use the schedule above to alleviate long lines. 

If you cannot make the Sunday tryout you can attend the AAA Tryout on Saturday September 24th. Just mention when signing up at the tryout that you are here for a Majors tryout.
