2008 Tryout Schedule

First off, keep in mind that the term "tryout" here is a bit of a misnomer. It's actually more of an evaluation to help determine the appropriate league for each child. No one is omitted from participation based on this evaluation. We use the term "tryout" regardless, so bear with us.

To determine your child's official Little League Age, use their online age calculator here. Please use ONLY this official Little League age when considering which tryout session to attend.

If you have not shown your child's birth certificate at sign-up, please make sure to bring it along to the tryout.

Please notice that only kids in certain situations need to come to tryouts. Read the conditions below carefully. If you find that your child does not fit into one of these situations, then there's no need to come to tryouts. Get it?

Here is the schedule for tryouts: (Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot.)
