RALL Spring Baseball Tryouts - February 22nd, 2020


NEW TRY-OUT LOCATION !!!!!!!

The Terrace Sports Complex:
2525 Robb Dr.
RENO
NV 89523




Tryout Check-In Process:
 

Please do not drop off and leave your child. Plan on 30-75 minutes for check-in and tryouts. Length of time is dependent upon number of players for each age group. You may sit in the bleachers with your player or your vehicle until their age group starts tryouts. Parents are not allowed on the fields at any time. Please be sure to bring a coat for your player to stay warm! Thank you!

Who needs to attend tryouts?

REQUIRED: If your player is league age 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 and NOT a property player to the Major Division (Property Player = Player who played on a Major team for RALL in the Spring of 2019)

OPTIONAL: If your player is league age 7 and has played at least 1 season at RALL in our Farm or AA Divisions, or if you are new to RALL and played at least one season elsewhere in a machine or coach pitch division.

What do I need to bring to tryouts?
If you've not turned in your player's Medical Release form, it will be required before your player can get his tryout number. You can complete it ahead of time by downloading it here, https://www.littleleague.org/downloads/medical-release-form/ or we will have blank forms available to complete onsite.

We are having try-out outside on our regular baseball fields, so plastic cleats are encouraged. A baseball mitt is required.  Bats are optional, as we will have bats available for use.

What do I need to know about tryouts?
Tryouts are done by league age, not by division.

It is possible for your child to end up in a different division that the one you registered for, if there is a concern, please find a league official on Saturday to address that concern.
