IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TRYOUTS
As a result of Orange County “purple tier” protocols and Little League rule changes inspired by the events of last year, the logistics of GHLL player evaluations will be slightly different this Spring. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we make sure that we protect the children of Golden Hill and safely launch the start of our season.
DO NOT ATTEND TRYOUTS IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY COVID SYMPTOMS OR HAVE BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS COVID. PLEASE VISIT THE FOLLOWING SITE TO UNDERSTAND COVID SYMPTOMS
PLAYERS MUST APPEAR PERSONALLY AT THE CHECK-IN SO THAT THEY MAY BE ACCOUNTED FOR & TEMPERATURE CHECKED BEFORE TAKING THE FIELD
PLAYERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A FACE COVERING UPON CHECK IN. THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR A FACE COVERING DURING THE ACTUAL EVALUATION.
IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE CROWDING, 1 PARENT/SPECTATOR IS PERMITTED TO ACCOMPANY PLAYER AT EVALUATIONS. ONLY PLAYERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER PAST CHECK-IN TABLES
**ALL players, except those registered for T-Ball, are required to attend player evaluations.
**To limit participation numbers, the children of GHLL approved managers & 1st coaches should NOT attend evaluations. (LL 2021 only)
**It is possible that your child might get drafted into a division that they have already played.
**It is possible that players who are Little League Age 6s & 7s will not be drafted into the Rookie division and thus placed on a T-Ball team.
****ALL PLAYERS WILL BE PLACED ON A TEAM****
All draft eligible players will go through the following :
Outfield : 3 pop flies in LF position and throws to 2nd base
Infield : 3 grounders in SS position and throws to 1st base
Batting : 3 pitches from a pitching machine (speed varies by age). Last pitch, player will run the bases after swing- regardless if ball is put in play.
***Players need a baseball glove, LL approved bat (USA stamped), and helmet. Because of COVID protocol, helmets and bats will not be provided to the players this year. Athletic attire and cleats are advised.
1. All draft eligible players are placed on teams via a draft
2. Draft eligible players are not allowed to request a division to play in. Draft determines placement
3. Must draft situations : LL Ages 13-15 must be selected in Juniors, LL Age 12 must be selected in Majors, LL Age 11 cannot be drafted below AAA, LL Age 10 cannot be drafted below AA, LL Age 9 cannot be drafted below A, LL Age 8 cannot be drafted below Rookie.
**In some cases, LL Age 6s & 7s will not be drafted into Rookie and will be assigned to T-Ball. These players will receive a refund for the difference paid between T-Ball and the upper divisions.
4. It is possible that players could be drafted into a division that they played in a previous year. Note that last year's shortened season does NOT count as a "year of service" in that division.
***We understand that many parents would like their players to repeat a division because they did not get a season last year. However, all players are in the same situation and in order to balance the division with the proper level of age and skill - a draft is utilized to shape that instead of via request***
Drafts will be completed by 2/28 and the manager of your team will be contacting you by that evening to inform you of team information and practice schedule for March.
