TUJUNGA LITTLE LEAGUE TRYOUTS/ASSESSMENTS/EVALUATIONS


Are you ready for some Baseball!

We will be holding 3 options to attend Tujunga Little League Try outs/ Assessments. For all dates tryouts will begin at 10am and end by 1pm at Tujunga Little League.  These tryouts are for Farms, Minor, Major and Junior Divisions only
  • Saturday January 8th
  • Saturday January 15th
  • Sunday January 16th (note: begins at 11am)

We ask that you attend 1 of the 3 in order to assess your child to make sure they are placed in the correct division. We ask that you pre register before attending. Please visit our website www.tujungalittleleage.com to register.

What Exactly is Assessed in Tryouts?
Players will be evaluated in each of the following 5 areas:

  1. Batting
  2. Fielding Ground Balls
  3. Fielding Fly Balls
  4. Throwing / Pitching
  5. Running

What to Wear to Tryouts

  • Comfy Clothes – make sure your child is wearing some sort of comfortable clothes (baseball pants are okay, but not required)
  • Cleats
  • Cup – only for boys, of course
  • Hat – to block the sun

What to Take to Tryouts

  • Glove
  • Helmet 
  • Bat
  • Batting Gloves – only if you have them
  • Water

What is the Evaluation Process?

  • Check-In -Your child will receive a number to attach to the front and/or back of his/her shirt
  • Warm Up -Kids will start warming up and playing catch with each other while they wait to get to the stations
  •  Rotate Through the Evaluation Stations
  • Go Home - After your child is finished at the last station, they will be free to leave

How Can You Prepare Your Child for Baseball Assessments?

1 – PRACTICE WITH THEM

  • It is a good idea to knock the rust off the old baseball glove a little sooner than in the car on the way to evaluations.

2 – ENCOURAGE THEM

  • Assure them that they will make it on a team, regardless of their performance at evaluations
  • Remind them that all the other kids are just as nervous as they are
  • Encourage them to HAVE FUN!!!!

3 – SET THEIR EXPECTATIONS

  • Although tryouts typically last a couple hours, each child gets very little time to show what he or she can do. For example, each child will likely only field 3-5 fly balls and grounders
  • There will be a LOT of waiting and standing in lines
  • Encourage your child to always be focused and paying attention to where their group is headed so they don’t get left behind
