Important: KLL 2017 MANDATORY Pre-season Assessment Information for all KLL Players wishing to play Minor A and Majors Divisions
Before starting the season, KLL must evaluate ALL new and returning players wanting to play in Minor A and Majors so they can be drafted onto teams in their respective divisions. Only players wishing to play Minor A and Majors need to be assessed.
These assessments help us to place your child appropriately. Please bring your player dressed in suitable clothing (T-shirt and shorts are ok) with good running shoes (no baseball cleats). Don't forget the required batting helmet and baseball glove.
Independent assessors will run the stations and rank the players in the following areas:
2. Throwing and Fielding (catching, but not fly balls)
3. Batting (bunting may be added for the Majors players)
KLL Minor A and Majors coaches will observe.
For Minor B players hoping to move up to Minor A, these assessments are required. For parents and players new to the assessment process, please be assured that assessments are not try-outs. Once all the players have been accessed, the players' scores will be used by the League to determine draft position, suitability for respective divisions, and team balancing. There will be a Majors Draft and Minor A Draft once the assessments are completed.
Players who assess for Majors, and are not drafted to a Majors team, will be drafted to a Minor A team. How much space is available in Minor A for Minor B players wishing to move up will not be known until the completion of the Majors Draft.
Assessment Dates and Times for the 2017 season:
Saturday, Jan 21, 2017: 10am -1pm (Richmond Oval)
Sunday, Jan 22, 2017: 1pm -5pm (Richmond Oval)
These are fixed times and KLL is unfortunately unable to accommodate other dates. The assessments will be divided by age groups with times emailed to players once registration is closed.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
