Evaluation Day Complete!

Thank you to all the coaches, board members and volunteers who gave their time today.  We also appreciate all the players who participated - the evaluation process is used to help create balanced teams.  The Spring 2015 Season is going to be exciting!


Next Up - Drafts and Team Formation

Now that evaluations have been completed, the next step in the process is to conduct the drafts for the Junior Rookie, Rookie, Minor and Major Divisions.  These drafts will occur this week.   Although we do our best to honor special requests, our primary focus is to build balanced teams, and we cannot guarantee that requests will be honored. 

T-Ball teams are formed geographically, by Elementary School district.  We also do our best to honor familes' requests.  
All families should hear from coaches by Friday, March 6th with your team assignments and schedules. 

Practices will begin on Saturday, March 7, 2015.  
Opening Day (first games) are on March 28, 2015.  


8U Tournament Team Info


Bill Owens will be managing an 8U Northside Tournament Team for Machine Pitch (players born 5/1/06 or later living within Northside’s league boundaries are eligible for consideration).

Tryout date is Sunday March 8th, from 2:00-3:30 on Hollymead Lower Field.  The raindate is March 15th, from 2:00-3:30 on Hollymead Lower Field.
The team will focus on skill development and having fun.  The team will normally get together just once a week on Sundays for either practice or game.  The cost for the team (if any) will be determined at a later date based on actual number of games and uniform costs.  Activities won’t conflict with regular Northside Spring league play and players are required to also be registered for local Northside spring play to be considered for the Tournament Team.
If interested in being considered for the 8U Northside Tournament Team, contact Bill Owens at .  Bill will also be available during the Evaluation Day to answer questions.
