Herndon SELECT Tryout Information
 
HERNDON SELECT BASEBALL
 TRYOUTS ANNOUNCEMENT
 
 
 
HOYB Families,
 
You are invited to have your child try out for a place on our 10U and 9U SELECT teams.  The schedule of tryouts is listed below. Only players league-age 10 or younger are eligible to participate.
 
Players will be selected only from among those who attend at least one full tryout.  It is strongly recommended, but not required, that players attend both tryouts.  Only a player's highest scores will be used when he/she attends both tryouts.
 
 
A player may try out for more than one SELECT team.  When trying out for a SELECT team in an older age group, he/she must be rated among the top eight players in order to be eligible for selection to that team.  This rule does not apply when a SELECT team is unavailable for a player's age group.  For example, an eight year old would not have to be rated among the top eight players because there is no 8U team.
 
The top eight players on a SELECT team are chosen by the cumulative ratings recorded by the evaluators in attendance.  The remaining players are chosen at the sole discretion of the SELECT manager.  An evaluator's ratings for his/her own child are not counted.
 
Players will be evaluated on a variety of skills including (but not limited to) fielding, throwing, hitting, running speed/quickness, pitching, and attitude/hustle.
 
SELECT activities will be scheduled so they do not conflict with regular season games and practices.  Once the regular season is over, SELECT activities will be held during the week (evenings) and on weekends.  Activities include practices, scrimmages with area teams, and participation in tournaments.  Typically, the SELECT season runs from early May through late July or early August.  Each manager determines the length of his team's season and schedule of activities.
 
Since HOYB is a member of the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Program, we participate in the BR/CR tournament chain, beginning with our district play.  This is a very important part of the SELECT season.  Our district is comprised of the Pioneer, Arlington, Brentsville, and Herndon programs.  The Cal Ripken District Tournaments will be held near the end of June or in early July.
 
The registration fee for SELECT players is $175.00.  This fee will help cover the costs of uniforms and tournament fees.
 
The SELECT program requires a higher level of commitment from its players and, of course, their families.  The rewards for participation in our SELECT program are significant.  Players will be exposed to more intensive and individualized baseball training and will play at a more challenging competitive level.
 
If you have any questions, please contact the manager of the SELECT team for which your child will try out.
 
Players should arrive 20 minutes early to register and warm-up prior to the start of a tryout.
