Spring 2021 Baseball Evaluations Schedule

Registration is still OPEN for all Leagues but will close on January 23, 2021.

All evaluations will take place at Kelley Cofer Park (4529 North Park Drive, Tucker, Ga)

Weather Permitting Evaluations for the Spring 2021 Baseball Season at DHYS are scheduled as follows:

 

Major

(11-12U)

Saturday January 23, 2021

AAA

(9-10U)

Saturday January 30, 2021

2021 AAA Eval Info

A/AA

(7-8U)

Saturday February 6, 2021

 

We are not scheduling Rookie (5-6U) Evaluations for the Spring 2021 Season at this time.

These are evaluations and not try-outs.  All registered (non-waitlisted) participants will be placed on a team.  The evaluations help create evenly matched teams within each league, which provides more competitive games throughout the season and a more fun experience for the players and families.

League Directors will circulate a Sign-up Genius to all registered families starting approximately one week before the scheduled evaluation date.  (If you register within 7 days of the evaluation please look out for an e-mail with the sign-up link shortly after your registration is accepted.)

Players will sign up for a specific time on the evaluation date for their league.  Each time slot will be open to a limited number of players to avoid crowding and help maintain distancing at the Park.  Evaluations may last approximately 90 minutes and players will complete the process in groups using both the upper and lower fields at Cofer.

Each league will host a small make-up evaluation one weeknight in the days following that league’s assigned evaluation date above.  Specific information on make-up evaluations will follow from your league director.

A Sign-in table for evaluations will be set-up along the third base line of the small field close to the parking lot.  Players must arrive at the sign-in table NO EARLIER THAN five minutes of their evaluation time. Warm-ups for fielding, pitching (AAA and Majors only), and hitting as well as instructions on the evaluation process will be incorporated into each group’s schedule. So, do NOT congregate at the Park and begin warmups ahead of your selected time slot. In order to avoid crowds at the field, parents and guardians must wait in the parking lot during evaluations.

Masks will be required for coaches and parents at all times while at Kelley Cofer.  Players will be required to wear masks when they enter the park and between evaluations stations.  Players will not be required to wear masks on the field, in the bullpens, or in the batting cages.

Each player must have a batting helmet, as well as a glove and bat for evaluations.  Please review the DHYS bat rules here (http://www.dhys.org/Page.asp?n=116189&org=dhys.org).  Players will not be permitted to share equipment during evaluations or during the season.  Players will not need to bring catcher’s gear to evaluations.

More detailed information will follow from your League Directors closer to the evaluation dates above.  In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at the e-mail addresses below.  Look forward to seeing everyone at the park!  (from a safe, outdoor distance).

For Major:

Lev Vaysman -   

Tim Frilingos - 

For AAA:

For A/AA and Rookie:
