The purpose of this email is to provide a status update on tournament team selection and team announcement.
Tryouts for 9-11 Tournament teams and 13-15 Metro teams concluded on Tuesday. 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, signed in kids, and chaperoned groups – we couldn’t have done it without you!!!
Since the conclusion of tryouts, the player agents and age directors have been working feverishly to complete the team selection. At this time, we believe that we will be in a position to post many of the teams to the website by today (Friday, 24 March) at 5:00 PM.
The teams that will be announced include the following:
a. 9-11 year-old Tournament – all levels
b. 13 year-old Metro – all levels
*15 & 14 Metro teams are still pending the final high school team selections, and will be announced as soon as possible (2 April is the target date).
The following teams will be announced in April:
a. 5-8: Following the draft targeted for the first week of April (Still looking for coaches!!)
b. 9-11 In-house: Following the draft targeted for the first week of April (Still looking for coaches!!)
c. 12/13 Community Teams: Mid-April
d. 14/15 Community Teams: Mid-April
e. 16-18 SYBA: Mid-April
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 a safe and fun spring break, and your teams the best of luck for an outstanding 2017 baseball season.
Thank you for your support of Chanhassen Athletic Association Baseball.
