Skills Evaluations Reschedule for 3/16

Thank you for your understanding and patience with our cancellation.  We explored several options, but determined the best option is to reschedule our skills evaluations for this Saturday, March 16th.   The evaluations will be held at Hit Dawg Academy.  2050 East Center Circle, Building F, Suite 300, Plymouth, MN 55441.  All 10U, 12U, and 14U players should attend. If you are unable to attend, please let us know in advance. 

Volunteer Deposit Check:  If you did not provide us with a $100 check at the parent meeting to secure your volunteer commitment, you can bring it to Evaluation Day.  

Uniforms:  If you are returning a jersey as part of the uniform exchange program, please bring it to evaluation day.  We will also have jerseys available in all sizes if players would like to try on and compare sizes.

A few logistical items to note:

What equipment do we need to bring?

Players should bring their glove, bat, helmet, and fielding mask if they prefer to wear one. We will also have bats and helmets available for use.  

The evaluations are on turf.  What shoes should should be worn?

Players can wear plastic molded cleats, turf shoes, or tennis shoes.  Metal cleats will not be allowed at Hit Dawg.

What is being evaluated?

All players will progress through ground ball, fly ball, and hitting stations.  Defensively, they will be evaluated on their fielding ability, arm strength, throwing accuracy, and defensive fundamental skills.  At the hitting station, they will be evaluated on bunting (not 10U), hitting, and swing mechanics. They will also be assessed on attitude, hustle, and effort.    

Can I watch?

Access to the evaluation area is limited to players, evaluators, coaches, and designated workers.  The lobby at Hit Dawg is relatively small, and we want to ensure we have room to check in the next group of players while they wait for access to the gym.  We would encourage you to come back at the conclusion of your daughter’s evaluation time.
