All returning players are required to attend tryouts with the exception of 15U-17U.  15U-17U returning players DO NOT need to attend tryouts.

 

If you have multiple kids trying out, please make sure to register EACH player that is trying out. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your tryout time. If evaluations should be cancelled due to weather, please check back here (on this page) for updated dates and times.  Tryouts will cost $25  this year and is a non-returnable fee.  Payment for tryouts will be online through our registration process. Players will not be allowed to try out if they have not paid the tryout fee.  If you plan on trying out, please make every effort to register online, we plan our evaluator's availability based on the confirmed number of players.  We have 5 sessions, each session will include different age groups.  Please make sure to sign up for the session that is for your 2023 age (see age explanation below).

Tryouts are for the 2023 summer season.  If you would also like to participate in the 2023 spring season, we will have a signup sheet at tryouts for you to sign up for consideration for spring teams.  We will not be offering a "spring only" option at this time.  Players must be selected for a summer team to participate with a spring team.  Due to WIAA restrictions with high school sports, spring option is not available for 14U-17U players.

 

Feel free to respond to jbaclutch@gmail.com with any other further questions.  We look forward to seeing you at the 2023 tryouts!

What players can expect at Tryouts

Players will be evaluated and graded on the following skills: fielding ground balls, catching fly balls, throws from shortstop to first base, throws from the outfield to home plate, hitting, baserunning, and if a player is a pitcher or catcher, those skills as well.  The evaluation will be done by multiple coaches in the JBA organization.  All evaluation grades will be kept confidential and will only be shared with the coaching staff to determine overall try out results.  Please make sure that players are loose and have stretched or have thrown before their tryout. There will be designated areas available for players to warm up.
