A: Yes, for all players except tee ball! Our coaches must evaluate players for proper team placement.

Q: What day, and what time, will my player be evaluated?

A: Players will be evaluated by age group, and will only come on one day/one time (with 30 minutes between sessions for sanitation):

Saturday March 6th:
    • 8:30-11am:   13 – 14 y.o.’s

      • Tee Ball players do not need to attend. Only 6-year-old players who want to try out for a Rookie Team need be evaluated.

Q: Where are evaluations being held?

A: Evaluations will be at Madison Middle School, on the turf field.

Q: What should my player wear to their evaluation?

A: Players should wear baseball attire/athletic clothing. Baseball hats are recommended. Players should wear running / athletic shoes, but no cleats, as we’ll be on turf.

Q: Will evaluations be indoors, or outdoors?

A: Evaluations will take place outside, rain or shine. Players should dress weather appropriately.

Q: Do tee-ball players need to be evaluated?

A: No, however, families who wish to have their 6-year-old(s) evaluated for a Rookies team are welcome to be evaluated. Evaluations do not guarantee a position on a Rookie team. Tee ballers who are evaluated, but not placed on a Rookie team, can still play tee ball.

Q: What precautions are being taken to protect families from COVID-19?

A: The Willamette Valley Babe Ruth league, including NEBR, is required to follow city and state social distancing and sanitation requirements. These include:

    1. Players must wear masks throughout the entire event, as 100% social distancing will not be possible.
    2. Spectators are not allowed at evaluations given capacity restrictions due to COVID-19.
      1. Note: If evaluations are at Maxwell fields, spectators will be allowed, but must remain in their cars
    3. The number of coaches, volunteers, and participants is limited to 30 people per session. Depending on the number of registrants, we may extend registration by a 3rd day (March 13th)
    4. There will be 30 minute gaps between evaluation groups for proper cleaning & disinfecting
    5. Additional requirements will be added as needed, based on city & state guidelines on March 6th & 7th

Q: When will we know what team our player(s) will be playing for?

A: This year’s evaluations are different from prior years, and so timeline for finalizing rosters is to be determined. The NEBR coaches and board will communicate teams as soon as possible.

Q: When do we pay our player(s) fees?

A: Once players are placed on a team, invoices will be emailed to parents. All fees must be paid within 1 week of being assigned to a team/rostered.
