12-Year-Old Metro Teams

To Chanhassen 12 Year Old Baseball Families:

The purpose of this note is to provide a status update on tournament team selection and team announcement.

Tryouts for the 2018 12 Year Old Metro Teams concluded this past week.  Our goal was to create an environment that was as consistent and fair as possible for all of the kids, and we feel that we accomplished this goal. Special thanks to the volunteers who worked stations and signed in kids – we couldn’t have done it without you!!!

Since the conclusion of tryouts, the player agents and I (as acting age director) have been working feverishly to complete the team selection, and we should be in a position to post teams to the website by 10:30 PM tonight.

The teams that will be announced include the following: 2018 12AAA, 12AA, and 12A.

We appreciate your patience with this process. While we acknowledge that no tryout system is perfect, our goal is to create a method that recognizes and balances past performance and tryout performance, and is supported by the appropriate checks and balances. Our desired outcome is to place kids on teams where they can make positive contributions, develop their skills and confidence, and continue to fuel their passion for the game. And while we think that we've accomplished this goal, our success ultimately depends on the support of you as parents. Your leadership sets the tone for how your kids will handle team placements, and in making your son's season the very best it can be. 

We wish you and your families the best of luck for an outstanding 2018 baseball season.

Thank you for your support of Chanhassen Athletic Association Baseball.

Play ball!

Summer Red Birds Clinic

Hello! My name is Brandon Arnold, I want you to know about a great opportunity for your child to be involved in this coming summer. The Chanhassen Red Birds, which is the local amateur baseball team is putting on a 3-Day Youth Baseball Camp. This camp will be spearheaded by a couple current Red Bird players.

Lead Instructors:

1) Brandon Arnold- I am a 2012 graduate of Chanhassen High School where I was heavily involved in athletics and the community. After graduating I went to Saint Cloud State where I played college baseball for 4 years. I was a 3 year starter as an outfielder. My senior year I was named to the All-Conference team as well as an All-Central Region team. I graduated in December of 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education. Currently I am a private hitting instructor, Starters Baseball Academy coach, and a Varsity High School baseball coach.

2) Zach Hoffmann- 2011 graduate of New Ulm High School. Zach went on to play college baseball at Saint Cloud State where he was a 4 year starter at DH and First Base.
