WHAT TO BRING: Bring only your glove, sneakers, and bat (if you have your own). NO CLEATS (Bats will be supplied at the hitting station if you don't have one).
WHAT TO EXPECT: Players will be divided into several groups and will rotate through stations performing different drills including infield, outfield, running, throwing, and hitting. Expect each session to last approximately 60 minutes. Please note that parents will not be allowed inside the Evaluation area.
WHAT IS SKILL EVALUATION: Skills Evaluation results are used by Pomfret Eastford Little League to help the Managers structure balanced teams. Skills Evaluation results are also used to determine which division is best for your child. Each player will receive a total score based on the different stations. These scores are used to rank players and help the Managers structure balanced teams. The scores are kept completely confidential and players/parents will not be told their scores or final results.
Players should do their best at each station to allow a fair evaluation.
