PLAYER EVALUATIONS FOR AA, AAA and MAJORS BASEBALL 


Saturday, February 16, 2019


Perfect Performance (also called Tysons Playground)

8502 Tyco Rd. Suite B, Tysons Virginia, 22182

 Great Falls Little League Baseball will be holding its annual skills evaluations on Saturday, February 16, 2018 for AA, AAA and Majors divisions. Players should wear sneakers (no cleats!) and comfortable clothes.  No food or drinks will be allowed in the facility.   

The facility is behind the Tesla dealership on the right side, towards the back of the building.

**Parking is not allowed in front of any open retail establishment and towing is enforced**. Please use the large lot behind the building if necessary.  See map at bottom of page.

Know your role as a parent!  For safety reasons, the building owners have requested that parents DO NOT enter the building.  Please bring your player to the front door, where GFLL adult volunteers will take your cell phone number so we can call/text you when your player is finished with their individual tryout. We will lead all players through check in and the individual tryout stations of fielding, batting, and pitching.  When they are finished - which will be approximately 40 minutes later, depending on how many players show up at any given time - we will have a volunteer with them at the door until you arrive.  No player will be allowed back into the parking lot without a parent.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but safety is paramount.

Spring team assignments will be announced after the player evaluation, draft selection, and team assignment process is completed.  This process ensures that players are evaluated for safely playing at the right level, and all teams are fairly balanced to maintain appropriate competition.  Team rosters will be communicated within 7-10 days of the evaluations.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who should attend the player evaluations?
All players who registered for AA, AAA and Majors are required to attend the scheduled evaluation session in order to be placed in a division.
  Evaluations are organized by the division you registered for and first letter of the last name.

What to bring?
Each player should bring their fielder's glove, not a catcher's mitt or first baseman's mitt. Bats are optional, and will be provided if a player doesn’t bring their own. If a player has his own batting helmet they can bring that, too, otherwise one will be provided.  Please remember that every Little League player must use an approved USA Bat this season, including at player evaluations.  

**All personal equipment should be labeled.

Why are there player evaluations?
The purpose of the player evaluation is to assist the Player Agent and League Commissioners in properly placing players at the level most appropriate level for their skills and experience. Little League regulations require every player playing AA or higher to be assessed prior to placement.  The skills evaluation also helps the team managers’ plan for the AA, AAA, and Major league drafts. All players at AA, AAA, and Majors are selected for their teams through a draft process by the managers.

What is expected of the players during the evaluations?
Players will be evaluated on their fielding, throwing and hitting skills. Players may be asked to demonstrate pitching skills, if desired. It is probably a good idea to spend some time working on these skills prior to the evaluation. It may not be a good idea for the evaluation to be the first time the player has picked up a baseball since last spring or last fall.  The evaluation process may take up to an hour.

How can my child be prepared for the evaluation?
Arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your evaluations window.  Wear appropriate baseball or exercise attire, arrive with plenty of time to sign in and do some light stretching. Relax, have fun, and do your best!

When and where will the evaluations take place?
Player evaluations are being held on Saturday, February 16that Perfect Performance in Tysons Corner, behind the Tesla Dealership. The address of the facility is 8502 Tyco Rd. Suite B, Tysons Virginia, 22182.  **VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Parking is only allowed in the spaces in front of Perfect Performance and behind that building.  DO NOT PARK in front of any other building.  They aggressively tow from these spots.**

What time are the evaluations?
In order to decrease wait times and make the sessions move faster, we are organizing the evaluations by level that the player is registered for and further breaking it down by first letter of the last name.  Remember, there are no tryouts for Tee-Ball and Coach Pitch.  Specific times are listed in the tables above.

If your schedule prevents you from coming at the time assigned, please come to another time slot for your division.  If you are unable to attend the skills evaluation or have any questions regarding the process, please contact Rachel Troy at [email protected].

Can parents watch the evaluations?
No. We limit the evaluations to as few people as possible – league officials, managers (or their proxy), and volunteers assisting with evaluations.  Not only does this provide a less stressful environment for the players, it helps keep the flow of the process moving along during this busy day.  It also helps keep the number of distractions at an absolute minimum.

What if I know someone who wants to play baseball, but has not registered? 
Walk-in registration will be available for players who have not yet registered – but pre-registration is much preferred. Be sure to tell all your friends and neighbors!  A late fee will be assessed at the time of registration.

When will my player find out what team he/she is on?
You will hear from your child’s manager within 7-10 days of the evaluations.
