The following information describes the Player Tryout and Team Formation process:
This year we are excited to partner with Flexxball for player evaluations.
The evaluators have the knowledge necessary to evaluate a player's skills. Players will be evaluated on running, infield, outfield, throwing accuracy, and hitting and bunting skills. Pitching and catching skills are evaluated separately.
Once tryouts have been completed, teams will be formed to create as many competitive teams as we have players based on like abilities. We often host a "second look" by inviting some players to come back for further evaluation from coaching staff.
Head coaches of teams will be determined after tryouts.
All coaches and team managers will be required to complete a background check and online concussion training (please see Certification under the Coachezzz menu).
Questions should be directed to Nikki Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is leading the Player Evaluation Committee.
Prior notice must be given if a player will miss the regular try-out session. A make-up session will only be used if a conflict is unavoidable. Please make every effort to try-out on the evaluation date.
6U & 8U teams are formed based on school and friend requests.
10U & 12U Travel Teams are selected based on the following:
The intent of EGFA for its Travel program is to field the most competitive travel teams possible. In order to accomplish this, players must participate in a skill evaluation and selection process.
Selection from eligible players based on tryouts (see tryout criteria)
Players desiring to “play up” if the guidelines are met
Players from outside the eligibility area if needed to field a team (see eligibility)
Team selection is the ultimate decision of the Board. A committee may be appointed to review tryouts and all other available information and select teams, subject to Executive Board approval. This committee may include potential coaches at that age group but will always include at least one Board member (without daughters at that age group) to ensure a fair process is followed in team selection.
14U teams are formed based on number of girls registered
Player Evaluations (Tryouts) are complete and teams are formed.
Playing in another age group is not permitted except for circumstances approved by the governing Board.
If players are needed at the next age level as a result of position play (i.e.: pitcher, catcher) or team size, the Board will identify player(s) to be invited to play up. Consideration will be made regarding impact to teams at the player’s actual age level.
The Board can make exceptions to the above on a case-by-case basis. Any changes must be approved by majority vote of the Board members, excluding any Board member parent of the player.
A new team will not necessarily be created in order to accommodate players at the higher age level.
After evaluations (tryouts), the Board will take all information into consideration and make a final decision.
