2016 Player Evaluations Information

To All Cal Ripken majors and minors players/parents,

In order to divide teams more equally and try to bring parity throughout the league as best we can, we will be holding player assessment / evaluations at the minors and majors levels this year.

Just to reiterate, this is not in any way a ‘try-out’. We are trying to determine the skill level of all players so that we can divide teams as evenly as possible.

Feel free to contact your town representative with any questions or concerns.

 

ConVal North (Bennington, Antrim, Francestown, Greenfield-Minors) : 

Minors evaluation has been postponed, new time and location TBD.

There will be no majors evaluation for ConVal North.

 

Conval South (P'boro, Temple, Dublin, Hancock, Greenfield-Majors) : 

Due to weather predictions and facilities available, we have decided to combine the majors and minors evaluations. The evaluations will take place on Saturday April 2nd from 3:00-5:30PM at SMS.

Even though the sessions start at 3:00, come at a time that is convenient for you. It should take no more than an hour for each player to go through the drills for assessment, we are just giving the 3 hour window because of the short notice and are trying to provide as much opportunity to allow as many players as possible to attend.

 

Thank you,

ConVal Cal Ripken Board
