Evaluation Process

FGYB Evaluations 2018

Evaluations for 2018 are on Saturday March 10th.  

Evaluation Times on March 10th:
Midgets "Check in 9:30am" - Evaluations begin at 10am
Juniors "Check in 12:30pm" - Evaluations begin at 1pm
Seniors "Check in 2:30pm" - Evaluations begin at 3pm

Evaluations are a 3 step process that allows our evaluators and coaches multiple looks at each ball player to make the most informed placement possible.  Our goal at FGYB is to have each of our youth playing at a level that is appropriate and most beneficial for the growth and development of each individual.  

All players who sign up will make a team.  There are 3 levels to play; National (instructional/competitive) American (competitive) Federal (highly competitive)

Below is a breakdown of how Evaluations work.  Also, see our "Dates to Remember" page for more details...


Step 1 Evaluation Day:

This is our first mass evaluation day that all ball players are evaluated on hitting, throwing, catching, fielding, and running.  This first step allows for a baseline of our placement process.  There is no coaching during the mass evaluation day.

Step 2 Sunday Workouts:

Sunday workouts follow our mass evaluation day allowing for a couple weeks going through drills and working on skills in the gym along with other ball players of the same age.  Coaches are not only coaching players during these workouts but are also keeping an eye on skill levels to assist in the placement process.

Step 3 Federal/American "Call Backs":

Players are "called back" by invitation only and have the opportunity to tryout for the highest level of play (Federal).  Some will make the Fed level and others will play at the American level which is also a competitive level.  

All Teams will be selected following step 3 of our evaluation process.  Coaches will notify parents/players as to what team they are on and begin the communication for the season.  As always FGYB recommends teams to use Game Changer for all team communication, practice & game schedules, scorekeeping, and much more!
