SOFTBALL

2018 PLAYER ASSESSMENTS

Assessments are necessary to establish basic abilities to catch, throw, hit & run.  Assessments will be used to rank players and establish A, B or C levels.  

All players will assess with their age group.  Any player (including 8U) wishing to "play up" must declare their request in writing to the softball commissioner (softball@arsports.org) by February 23rd.  Ability to play up will be determined by the board with input from coaches & parents.  Players registered at the appropriate age level will not be bumped to accommodate younger players.  

Players who do not assess at the March 4, 2018 player assessments are not guaranteed placement on a team.  Teams will be formed with equally skilled players to allow advanced players to continue to advance and allow equal playing time and the development of all players.  Special circumstances will be considered by the board on an individual basis and must be requested.

If you are unable to attend player assessments on March 4, 2018, due to a conflict with another sport, please submit a request to assess at a (TBD) alternate date to softball@arsports.org.   

REMINDER:

Uniform fittings will be held on March 4, 2018 during assessments.
