January 4, 2015 - We've shaken off our post-holiday lethargy and are ready for some baseball. Attached to this article is a memo with lots info on the upcoming season and details on tryout/evaluation weekend (click on the article heading and scroll down to see all the attachments to this article). We are also attaching the detailed player evaluation and tryout schedule for January 24-25 for age groups 6-12; the Pony schedule will be sent direct to Pony parents this coming week. If you will either be out of town or absolutely cannot come during your assigned time, see the memo for details on what to do. But please do everything you can do be there during your assigned time so we can keep things orderly that weekend as we have over 1,500 kids playing with us this spring.
We're also attaching a separate document with our list of the Top 10 questions we get about tryouts - hope we answer most of your questions. Plenty of info there on finding your tryout number, figuring out when and where to go, what to bring, what happens if you have a direct conflict, etc, so please refer to this before sending in any emails.
Finally, we are re-attaching the 2015 calendar but read the memo for some important info as well on starting dates for games and how we will schedule around the breaks.
Open Space/Wait List information: We have a few open spaces as of 1/4/15 in our Pony program (ages 13-14) as well as our 5U Shetland Blue league and 4U Small Ball leauge. We have also just opened up a new team in our 6U Shetland Red league and have a limited number of openings now in that league. Spaces will fill up so register ASAP if you are interested (you will initially be waitlisted but we can let you in as space allows). All other age groups are currently full but we have either no or short wait lists in some age groups. As spaces open up, they will go to players on our wait list, so please register online if you are interested. We will provide a full refund if we cannot clear you from the wait list or if you decide to withdraw from the wait list prior to your child being admitted off the wait list.
We will update right there should there be any changes. Tryouts will go on unless we have extreme weather conditions and we'll be sending out updates as we get closer to that weekend. See you in three weeks! Thanks, NYO Baseball
