Player Evaluations and Tryouts for the 2018 Season

Below is the schedule for Player Evaluations and Tryouts for the 2018 Season.

Who should attend evaluations?

Boys ages 9-14 interested in playing in a competitive baseball league.  Saints Baseball participates in the Eastern Iowa USSSA league which is a competitive league.  Boys interested in participating should have baseball experience and have the necessary fundamental skills to participate in a competitive league.

Saints Baseball forms tryout teams for age groups 9U-14U for those boys that are ready for a more competitive game and schedule. 

Tryout teams participate in either the AA or AAA divisions of both league play and tournament play.  Saints Baseball limits 11 players to our tryout rosters in age groups 9-14. Players that accept roster positions on the Tryout teams are required to pay an additional annual membership fee to practice in our indoor practice facility - St. Rita's.  

Non-tryout teams are limited to rosters of 12 players. These teams participate in the single A division of the Eastern Iowa USSSA League. These teams may also play in some local tournaments. Team schedules are ultimately up to the coach and the team parents. Members of these teams are strongly encouraged to join St. Rita's.There is an additional annual fee to join St. Rita's.

Under certain circumstances the board reserves the right to alter the number on rosters.

USSSA rules for eligibility are age based not grade based.  Therefore in order to register you must first determine the appropriate age group for the player.  The birthday cut-off date is May 1st. For example, 10U for the 2018 season means players who turn 11 on or after May 1, 2018 are eligible for a 10U Team. However, if a player turns 11 prior to May 1st then that player must register for 11U.

Players registering for 7U Coach Pitch and 8U are assigned to teams by school, friends, requests, etc.... Saints Baseball does not form tryout teams for age groups 7U or 8U therefore we do not hold evaluations for these age groups. Registration for 7U and 8U will be announced in August via school email. We will form as many teams as possible to accommodate those that register.

All players going into 9U - 14U must attend evaluations regardless of desire to play on a competitive/tryout team. This allows the program to assess all players in order to build both tryout teams and competitive recreational teams. Players currently on a Tryout team are not guaranteed to be on the tryout team the next season.  Subject to player skills, field and facility availability, Saints Baseball will attempt to form as many teams as needed in order to place as many players as possible.

Evaluation Schedule - Read Carefully:

July 11th: 9U tryouts and evaluations will be held at St. Pius Field. Registration at 5:30pm. Evaluations from 6:00-7:30pm.

July 12th: 10U tryouts and evaluations will be held at St. Pius Field. Registration at 5:30pm. Evaluations from 6:00-7:30pm.

Saturday July 22nd: 9-12U at St. Pius Field. Registration at 12:30pm. Evaluations from 1:00-2:30pm.

If your son is unable to make his age group tryout he is welcome to attend the tryout for the age below or above him

Saints Baseball will make every effort to announce the tryout teams prior to July 31st.  Online Registration for those teams will open immediately following the announcements.  Once the tryout team rosters are completed then online registration will open for the Single A teams. Those teams will be formed after online registration closes.
