My my My my
12+ in-house tryout information
In years past, CAA has held a practice for the 12/13 players and the 14/15 players.  At this practice, the coaches for the teams will watch the players and then they will draft their team.  
An email will go out to the parents of the in-house player's notifying them of the try-out practice date, time and location.

Currently at the 12/13 level, we are looking at having either 2 or 3 teams.  We currently have 30 players registered, 6 more would be prefect in that we could form 3 teams of 12 players each.
At the 14/15 level, we are looking for at least 3 additional players to round out 2 full teams.  We currently have 21 players registered.

If you by chance know of any families that are on the fence regarding playing this year, please let them know that we are still looking for more players.

2015 Baseball Team Selection Handbook

Dear CAA Baseball Families,

This past off-season CAA Baseball had a goal of creating a document that outlines the tryout/evaluation process.  Many hours of work and discussion went into ensuring players/families feel confident that the process is fair, balanced, and unbiased.  Transparency is important for CAA and this document should answer questions about how teams are formed and how data is used for player placement. 

This information will be covered at the parent meetings, so please reserve your questions for that time

The document can be found on this page, under the DOCUMENTS TAB.
