Lake Zurich Baseball & Softball House League Evaluations
Parents & Players
We hope you are all having a fun and safe winter. We wanted to send an update on our House Baseball & Softball leagues for the Spring 2021 season.
For our older leagues, we work to ensure that all teams can be evenly matched making the spring season as fun and competitive as possible. In order to do that, we hold a player evaluation in February in which players’ skill levels can be assessed. These sessions bring hundreds of players through a gym or training center over a short period of time. We then utilize those evaluations to hold a player draft with the team managers.
In 2021, we have chosen not to attempt the evaluation process due to the larger number of players to be evaluated in this CV 19 environment. However, in order to keep the competitiveness in the leagues, we will still hold drafts with managers. The evaluation materials used for players assessments will come from a variety of sources that we feel will enable the managers to understand most players skill levels.
As a reminder, guaranteed spots in our house league end on February 28th (except Rookie and Challenger) so please register soon!
Thank you and see you all in the Spring
