HOUSE EVALUATIONS – FEBRUARY 26th
House evaluations will be held on Saturday, February 26th from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm at Lord of Life Church in Ramsey. The goal is to have every player attend evaluations, as this is our only tool to help balance out house teams (formed via a coach’s draft process). Players that do not attend will be randomly placed on teams by the Baseball Board.
Please make sure your child is registered before evaluations. You can find registration details at www.arsports.org/baseball

U9 Tournament Team:
We are pleased to announce that we will be organizing the U9 Tournament Team. This team is NOT to be viewed as a traveling team; it is simply an extension of the House Program for players that have a strong evaluation on February 26th. In previous years, this group met to practice outside of their house team events on Wednesday evenings with OPTIONAL practices on Sunday evenings. This team also had an opportunity to participate in two tournaments through Gopher State. If the team has success at one of the tournaments, there is a chance of earning a berth to one of the two state tournaments offered at the U9 Level. As a part of the evaluations, players that are currently in 2nd and 3rd grade will be eligible to be invited to the U9 Tournament Team.
If your child wants to be considered, he or she must attend evaluations during the time slots provided for this grade level. Players will be contacted individually, and a separate registration will be required.
Note: All House teams, including the U9 Tournament Team, will be drafted by selected coaches the week of March 21st.
* If you cannot make your scheduled time slot above, please contact Adam Byrd, Senior House Director
VOLUNTEER AND FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENTS
1. Volunteer Requirement (DIBS): 4 hrs of volunteer time per registered child or a maximum of 8 hrs per family per season, or pay a $250 volunteer buyout option at registration per registered child.
