Softball Skill Assessments & Uniform Fittings (Ages 4-12)
February 17th, 2018
James River High School Gymnasium
700 James River Road, 23113

       

 

 

 

Seniors Softball Skills Assessments & Uniform Fittings (Ages 13-16) will be after High School tryouts on Saturday 2/24 at HLL.  Field Location and Time are TBD.  

 

 

Schedule 
The updated schedule showing time slots for each age division will be posted at the bottom of this message closer to the date of assessments.  
 
 
IF you need to attend a different time slot due to a conflict OR you can't attend at all PLEASE email 
 
*IF you are requesting to play up you must attend both division time slots to be assessed by both sets of coaches.  Placement in a division out of your age range will depend on 1) skill level assessed  2) number of kids needed to balance rosters across divisions. 
 
Purpose Of Skills Assessments
Skills assessment results are used by Huguenot Little League to help the managers draft balanced teams at the Machine Pitch(7-8), Minor(9-10),  Major(11-12), and Senior(13-16) levels in Softball.   Skills evaluation results are used to determine any pending “play up” or "play down" requests as well. Players in the machine pitch division and up will be scored on hitting, throwing, fielding, and speed. Girls that want to pitch will also be assessd for the minors division and up.   These scores are used to rank players and prepare draft information to help the managers draft balanced teams.  The scores are kept completely confidential and players will not be told their scores or final results. Players should do their best to allow for a  fair evaluation heading into the draft. 
 
4-6 Year Old Coach Pitch does not do skills assessments but they do need to try on uniforms during skills assessments. 
 
Uniform Fittings 
During skills assessments players will get fitted for uniforms to be sure the correct size is ordered. Parents are encouraged to help their daughters get fitted correctly. 
 

Volunteers are needed to run different stations at Skills Assessments. Please visit the link to see how you can help! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084bafad2ba57-hllsoftball

Game Pants

All HLL softball players are required to wear black game pants for games. These are included in the registration fee for Coach Pitch (4-6) and Machine Pitch (7-8) and will be available to try on at assessments to be sure correct size is ordered.
