March 6th - MAC 6pm - 8pm
Volunteer Checks will be collected ($250/family)
There will be "Try on Jerseys" to make sure you are ordering the right size.
Athletes should arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time to register. Each player will need their own glove, bat and helmet. Athletes should wear tennis shoes as the surface is a basketball court.
Athletes will be evaluated in a number of categories. Evaluators will consist of high school coaches from Irondale and Mounds View, and it will also include MVSA's team formation committee.
Athletes that registered as a pitcher and/or catcher will be evaluated at the end of their tryout session. It is recommended that pitchers arrive to the tryout having completed their pitching warmup routine at home. We will allow a short warm up period at tryouts but it will not be feasible to allow the pitcher to go through their full routine if longer than 5-10 minutes. Catchers should bring their own equipment, but we will have equipment for those that need it.
Parents will be allowed to assist their athlete with the registration process, but all parents will need to leave the MAC during tryouts.
We look forward to seeing your athlete at tryouts!
