Player Assessment

The 2019 Skills Assessment will be held on March 8th and 9th (Baseball and Softball - no Tee Ball) to ensure the most compatible player to division placement. While mandatory, the sessions are not “tryouts” as all players are placed on a team.

The sessions are run by the JAA Board with division specific coaches assessing the players. The sessions involve the players demonstrating their skills at various baseball drills including hitting, fielding, throwing, pitching (Triple A and above) as well as overall attitude. The sessions are also the first opportunity for the players and coaches to meet.

Please contact the JAA Board if you feel your child needs to "play-up" or play-down" a division for special consideration. 

Team Formation

Teams are formed in March at division drafts attended by all coaches in the division. Based on the Skills Assessment, players will be drafted into the most appropriate division and team. The goal of the team formation process is to create an equal distribution of skill level within the division helping to ensure the best overall playing experience.

Once selected to a team, each player is making a commitment to attending scheduled practices and games.
