Part 1: Coaches Evaluations from prior season
Every travel team head coach and two assistants will submit a collaborative player evaluation for each player on their roster from the prior season. This evaluation will identify players into tiers A, B, C with A being the top tier and C the bottom tier. This player evaluation will be used as part of the overall score for the current year’s tryout, excluding 10-year olds.
Coaches will evaluate players in the following categories to aide in putting them into a specific tier:
Part 2: Tryouts
Tryouts will be held in order to assess each player in the skill areas mentioned below. Please see LBA by-laws for more specific eligibility information.
Skills Evaluated (% of tryout score):
Base Running/ Agility (5%)
All three timed runs will be equally weighted
Players will receive their score 1 through 5 based on what tier their score for each run ranked amongst all tryout participants. Tiers will be grouped as close to 20% tiers unless there are equal times which may make the tiers slightly more or less than 20% of the participants
Part 3: Team Selection
Players will receive a final score after tryouts that will be comprised of their prior year rank and tryout score according to the weightings by age level listed below:
*Players ranked by their prior seasons coaching staff in the (“C” Tier of AAA and “A” Tier of AA) and ( “C” Tier of AA and “A” Tier of A ) will receive the same prior year score that gets factored into the calculation of their overall final score (excluding 10’s)
Cuts: Cuts may be made after tryouts have been completed depending on the number of teams, players and skill level at each age level. Players who are cut will be notified and asked to sign up for the LBA house program.
Once tryouts are completed and players final scores are calculated the team selection process will follow these rules.
