Evaluations, Pants Fitting and Parent Meeting

On March 11th at Blackberry Creek Elementary School KYSLL will be holding evaluations, pants fitting and parent meetings. See below for specifics on each.

Evaluations

Evaluations will be conducted for all Spring Minor A, Majors and Juniors players at Blackberry Creek Elementary School in Elburn. Evaluations will be held between Noon and 4:00 PM, but players will only need to attend the one hour session they are assigned. For player assignments and more information visit the Evaluations Page.

Pants Fitting

The pants fitting will be on the between Noon and 4 PM at Blackberry Creek Elementary school in Elburn. 

Your player has an opportunity to try on the pants size they ordered, you will just be trying pants on, not picking them up. Their actual pants will be delivered to their coaches with the rest of their uniform.
   
It is important to attend this event because softball pant cuts are not quite the same as regular pants and do not always fit the same as pants you would buy in the store.  If you cannot make this fitting then the size that you ordered is what will be delivered with your uniform
.

Parent Meeting

A parent meeting will be held in the Multi-Purpose room sometime between Noon and 4, the actual times will be posted here once final evaluations times have been set. The intent of these meetings is to give parents an overview of the upcoming season, set expectations and to answer any questions they may have. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Season Timeline

Team Formations
