Expect to play 1 to 2 games per week.

Evaluations and Uniform Fitting

Evaluations

Evaluations will be conducted for Minor A, Majors and Juniors. Evaluations will be held on the first Sunday in March between Noon and 5 PM, but players will only need to attend the session they are assigned. More information can be found on our Evaluations Page


Uniform Fitting

The uniform fitting will be on the between Noon and 3 PM during the evaluation session. 

Your player has an opportunity to verify the uniform size they ordered is correct, you will just be verifying sizing, not picking up your uniform. Their actual uniform will be delivered to your players coach.

We will have various sizes of pants and jersey samples to try on in order to check the sizing.
   
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
