SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT WAITLISTING  FOR THE FOLLOWING AGE GROUPS:

Triple A Baseball, Minor Baseball, Majors Baseball, Junior Softball, Senior Softball

  • Each of these age groups have been set-up to start a waitlist after a certain amount of registrations have taken place (Please see individual registration for details). 
  • We have done this based on registration levels over the previous 3 seasons and the fact that we have run into an issue where we don’t have enough kids sign up to form another team at a particular level.  This has led us to either place too many kids on a team or we had to turn away kids after they have already registered.  Both of which we feel are not in the best interests of our program.   That said once we get enough players on the waitlist to form another team at that particular level we will certainly do so as we want as many kids playing in our program as possible.  
  • Here is an example to illustrate what we are talking about:
    • Senior Softball will start a waitlist after 13 kids (Note: Each age group listed above will have their own waitlist number specified).  If we have 11-13 girls on the waitlist we will form a 2nd team.  Once we have 26 girls registered we will move them from the waitlist to being officially registered and then start the waitlist at 27 girls. 

 

Player Evaluations

Player Skills Evaluations will take place on Sunday March 11th, 2018 at the Vernon Hills High School Fieldhouse. These skill evaluations are not mandatory but highly recommended so that we can form as evenly balanced teams as possible. (To get to the fieldhouse please enter through the main gym doors which are located at the South end of the building.  Walk past the swimming pool on your right and make a right turn at the first hallway.  We will have a table set-up to greeet you)  The schedule is as follows:
