2017 Baseball and Softball Assessments

 


Baseball and Softball Assessments

Granby Little league will hold baseball assessments on Saturday, March 11th from 9:00 to 2:00 at Suffield Academy,185 North Main Street, Suffield.  This is required for all little league baseball players, baseball age 8 to 12.  Failure to attend can have an impact on the level your child plays in.  Juniors baseball assessments will be scheduled at a later date if required.  We are staggering the start times to decrease wait time – please attend the scheduled time outlined for each age.

  9:30 – Baseball 12 (born 5/2004 to 4/2005)

10:15 – Baseball 11 (born 5/2005 to 8/2006)

11:00 – Baseball 10 (born 9/2006 to 8/2007)

12:00 – Baseball 9 (born 9/2007 to 8/2008)

12:45 – Baseball 8 (born 9/2008 to 8/2009)

 

Softball assessments will be held on March 11th from 1:30 to 5:15 at the Wells Road School Gymnasium.  This is required for all little league softball players, softball age 8 to 12. Failure to attend can have an impact on the level your child plays in. Again, we are staggering the times to decrease player and parent wait time – please attend the schedule time outlines for each age.

1:30-2:00 – Softball (born between 1/2004 to 12/2004)

2:00-3:00 – Softball (born between 1/2005 to 12/2006)

3:00-3:45 – Softball (born between 1/2007 to 7/2007)

3:45-4:30 – Softball (born between 7/2007 to 12/2007)

4:30-5:15 – Softball (born between 1/2008 to 12/2008)

 

Please dress ready to play with your glove.  If you have a bat and helmet, you can bring those as well, however we will have bats and helmets on site.  The main purpose of assessments is to ensure we have an even distribution of skills when selecting teams.  Our goal is to have “even” teams, allowing for close games and similar records at the end of the season.  The primary criteria for which players play at each level is age.  If necessary, we will use assessment scores to determine how to round out teams at each level, but this will be minimal.

During assessments, we’ll give the players a chance to warm up.  They will then be run through some drills to assess their skills at fielding, catching, throwing, and hitting.  Please remind your players that this is not a “test.”  Everyone will make a team, and again, the main reason we do this is to draft equitable teams.  

Please be sure to register prior to assessments for our pre-season clinics.  You must be registered on the Granby Little League site in order to attend pre-season clinics or assessments – click here to register:  www.granbyll.org  and to find out more information about the clinics and Granby Little League.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Challenger Division available for Granby residents

Challenger Division
 

The Challenger Division was established as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide.  Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.



One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field, but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed.Parents and teenagers are strongly encouraged to become involved in this uniquely-rewarding division of Little League. 






Below are some details about Simsbury's Challenger Division:
 

  • Practices start in late April with practices on Sunday afternoon lasting for one hour.  

  • Games are generally on Saturdays although sometimes a week night game is scheduled.  

  • Games are 2 innings long, and every player bats each inning. 

  • Players hit coach pitched balls or off a tee. 

  • Buddy's in the field assist the players when needed.  

  • Players are encouraged to participate, but never pressured.

  • A typical season is generally 10 games.  

  • Simsbury plays Challenger teams from other area towns, with half the games on the road.

  • There are no residency or school requirements to play in the Challenger Division.  Players from both Simsbury and neighboring towns are welcome to join the Challenger Division.

  • To register click here:  Simsbury Little League


If you have questions about your child's eligibility, or the league, please contact one of the manager's for the 2016 season:
