EVALUATIONS
TBD
Evals are ONLY for AA, AAA and Majors on March 9th.
NO evals for PeeWee or Rookies
Evals for Juniors and Seniors TBD

*Evals are scheduled for 1 hour.
*Each player will hit 5-6 live pitches from a coach and then, they will pitch 5-6 in the bullpen at the field. 
*If the player is not batting or pitching, they will shag balls and play catch w coaches.
*The coaches (and volunteers that are asked) will evaluate the players.  At the end of evaluations, the league coordinators will get together and determine if any player should be moved from one league to another based on evaluations.  This is not expected to occur, however if it does, all league coordinators will work together for what is best for the player.
*Example - if a 10 year old is registered for Majors, but they rate low and should be in AAA, then we will move the player to AAA.  The goal is to get the kids in the league that is best for them.
*If players are moved to a different league than they registered for, a credit will be issued or if a balance is due, that balance will be issued to the account.

PRACTICES AND GAMES
All leagues will have one week night practice and a game on Saturdays.  There will be games scheduled in the evenings after the end of the school year. 
Practices and games can be held at our various facilities:  AJAA Baseball/Softball park located at CR 625 and 100 S, Avon Middle School North fields, Avon Middle School South fields and Light & Life Church on 100S.

GEAR REQUIRED
AJAA will provide players with uniform shirts and hats.  Players are asked to purchase gray baseball pants, a fielding glove and a batting helmet.  Cleats are encouraged (non-metal) but not mandatory.
