Evaluations FAQ 

My child is eight years old and would like to play in the 9/10 (10U) division. Does he/she still need to come to evaluations?
Yes, they do. They must be evaluated prior to being moved into the 10U division and they should attend the 9/10 evaluations session.

My child played 11/12 (12U) last season. Does he/she still need to come to tryouts?
Yes, they do. We may need to reselect the 12U division this year.

Will my child be on the same team as last year?
If your child is selected to the 12U division or older divisions, they are subsequently placed on the team that selected them. If your child is in one of the younger divisions, you may request a coach or request your son or daughter be placed with a friend or neighbor. 

What does my child need to wear?
Your child needs to wear loose fitting clothes (sweats, warm-ups or baseball pants and a t-shirt) and NON-MARKING INDOOR SHOES. Your son or daughter will not be allowed into the gymnasium with street shoes. Additionally, please do not forget to have them bring their glove.  It will be used extensively in the evaluations. 

Can I be in the gymnasium with my child during evaluations?
No. Only coaches and league personnel are allowed on the gymnasium floor during evaluations. The observation level above the gym should be open for parent viewing.

What if I can’t make evaluations or my son or daughter is sick?
We are a league of volunteers, all with families and we understand life does happen and complications can (and do) arise.  If your child cannot make evaluations at the scheduled date and time (or at the "makeup" scheduled time, then we ask that you contact our League Vice President Mike Fetko via e-mail or phone ASAP. (
mikefetkojr@yahoo.com or (907)563-7922.)  

Can I register at evaluations?
Yes, you can. However, there is typically a long line and a lot going on during evaluations. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our online registration service before attending evaluations at www.farnorthysa.org.

Should attendance at the primary evaluation time not be possible, please plan to attend the make-up evaluation session listed below:

DATE:                      THURSDAY, APRIL 23rd & SUNDAY, APRIL 26th
LOCATION:       THE ALASKA DOME (6501 Changepoint Drive)
TIME:                7:00 – 9:00 PM - 9-17 YO Makeup Evals
                       (Only for those who couldn't attend the 4/19 Evaluations!)

Far North Youth Baseball Needs You
to Volunteer for the 2015 Season!

Are you passionate about youth baseball and softball and its future in our community? Do you want to become a part of a dedicated team who puts kids, young adults and their families first, one who really cares about and believes in what they do and loves to have fun while working together? If so, Far North Youth Baseball is a great place to give some of your time and energy!

Our organization is operated solely by volunteers with a broad, diverse array of skills drawn from their individual personal and work backgrounds, all of whom have but one common goal: the betterment and continued development of our league and the children and their families that are at its core.

Join the Far North Youth Baseball Board of Directors!

Far North has enjoyed great success in recent years by increasing the opportunities for all youth to play, extending the regular season and adding a Fall Ball program for extended, late season opportunities. The league was also responsible for creating opportunities that have provided maximum safety, development and fun through modified rulesets and playing fields.

Additionally, because the boundaries of our league comprises the entirety of the Greater Anchorage area, the Far North Board of Directors has a very unique opportunity to guide the future of youth baseball and softball for all of the families in our community. We are passionate about serving young athletes and making a difference in their lives by promoting opportunities for skill development, teamwork, leadership, friendship and loyalty, and because our board of directors is mainly comprised of parents and relatives of children currently involved in our league, new members are needed each and every year.

The next several years promise to be exciting ones for Far North, and we need your help to continue to have a positive impact on our community and membership, SO GET INVOLVED TODAY!
