Travel Tryouts / 2nd-4th Grade House Evaluations

Travel Tryouts AND 2nd - 4th Grade House Evaluations will be held March 20-21, 2021.

Mark your calendars!   

All travel players will need to tryout on these dates.

House players in 2nd-4th Grade will also be attending these tryouts. 
(There will be another evaluation for any house players who cannot make evaluations this weekend)

Travel tryouts will be held this year at the new Elk River Multi Purpose facility (the old Olympic ice arena).  We are excited about this new space, and will give us much more room for tryouts, and the ability to also evaluate all 2nd – 4th graders for travel or our kid pitch leagues.

New to 2021: ALL kids in 2nd – 4th grade will attend Tryouts/Evaluations.  If you indicate that you want to play house, or do not make a travel team, your scores will be used to place you appropriately into one of our 2 kid pitch house leagues.

Countdown to Tryouts!

ADDITIONAL HOUSE EVALUATION

We will have an additional house evaluation day in April.   This will be attended by the following groups:

ALL 1st Graders who select to play house kid pitch (National League).

ALL 2nd-4th Graders who cannot attend the travel tryout / evaluation weekend.

ALL 5th Grade and above House players.


NEW LEAGUES FOR 2021

The Elk River Youth Baseball Development Committee has repurposed our house leagues for kids 4th grade and younger.  We are very excited about this change,  and the goal is to make sure kids in this age group are placed appropriately based on ability, not necessarily age.

Our leagues for 4th grade and under will be the following:

  • Minors (Coach Pitch) – Prek – 1st Grade, this is an introductory coach pitch league.
  • National League (Beginner Kid Pitch) – 1st – 3rd Grade, this is an introductory modified kid pitch league
  • American League (Advanced Kid Pitch) – 2nd – 4th Grade, this is an advanced kid pitch league

Each league is a progression, to help kids move up and be prepared for competitive and/or travel baseball.

Kids from PreK – K will start in our Minors Coach Pitch League.

1st Graders have the option to play coach pitch or our modified kid pitch league if they are ready.

2-4th Graders will register for either house or travel.  These kids will be evaluated during our travel tryouts/evaluation weekend.  Kids who opt to play house, and kids trying out for travel, but not making a team, will be placed in either our National (beginner kid pitch) or American (advanced kid pitch) league based on their evaluation scores.


Indoor Training Facility Rental

Are you looking to get a few more cuts off a tee? Would you like to take some swings at balls from our pitching machine? Maybe you want to work on some fielding and throwing. You can rent time in our indoor training facility. Please read through the baseball facility policies to understand all the rules and regulations to be followed. We have 2 batting cages for hitting and a wide turf area to work on fielding, throwing, etc.  If you are interested in renting time in our facility, email Dave Lodermeier to schedule your time in the facility.

2nd - 4th Grade Travel Notes

Travel teams for kids in 2nd-4th grade will be as follows.

All 3rd & 4th graders are eligible to try out for Traveling Baseball.  We encourage all 3rd graders to consider trying out for travel baseball, as they will be placed in an entry level travel league.

2nd graders must request permission from the traveling director.

ALL traveling teams will compete in the MYAS leagues.

2nd - 4th grade teams are dependent entirely upon how many players are trying out, as well as ability.

Our goal is to have the following travel teams at this level:

  • 9U – this team will be made up of the top 3rd graders who are trying out
  • 10AAA – this team will be made up of the top 4th graders who are trying out
  • 10A – The top scoring kids not making 9U or 10AAA will be evenly split into 2 10A teams.

Note that the above is our goal, but talent and number of kids trying out will factor into how these teams are ultimately formed.

Anyone not making one of these teams will be placed in our National or American House league.
