If your player wants to play for a VLL Majors, AAA, or AA team this Spring, a tryout is mandatory.
(Click here for more information about levels of play in VLL)
If your player is league age 11 or 12, and was on a Majors team last Spring (2018), they do not need to attend another tryout, as they will be returning to their same Majors team this Spring, after completing a paid registration by February 1.
8yo players who do not want to be eligible for the AA draft also do not need to attend a tryout, and will be assigned a lower level team after the drafts conclude. Note that most 8yo players in VLL play single A.
All other players ages 8-12 must have a paid Spring 2019 registration completed on the VLL website before attending a tryout, to be considered for a draft league this Spring. (AA, AAA, Majors)
Players only attend one tryout date (not both). The tryout day and time options are listed by age (not by baseball division / level). Given the number of players that need to attend a tryout, please attend at your designated day/time, and do not show up early or late!

Know your role as a parent! For safety reasons, the building owners have requested that parents DO NOT enter the building. Please bring your player to the front door, where VLL adult volunteers will take your cell phone number so we can call/text you when your player is finished with their individual tryout. We will lead all players through check in and the individual tryout stations of fielding, batting, and pitching. When they are finished - which will be approximately 40 minutes later, depending on how many players show up at any given time - we will have a volunteer with with them at the door unti you arrive. No player will be allowed back into the parking lot without a parent. We apologize for any inconvenience, but safety is paramount.
Make sure your player is properly equipped. All players must be dressed for baseball with a glove, helmet, and athletic shoes. Please do not bring a bag, bat, water, or cleats - as they are not allowed in the facility.
