Players will be evaluated by independent evaluators in the following skills:

THROWING
U8 level will play regular catch with no pitching.  They will be evaluated on how they can throw and catch from approx 15′.   U10/U12/U14 will be evaluated during fielding drills.

PITCHING
U10/U12/U14 ONLY: if your daughter has interest in pitching we need to know at the sign-up table when they arrive.  Each player will get 15-20 pitches total from the regular pitching distance in the pitching lanes.

FIELDING
Each player will make 3-5 throws to 1st base from each of the infield positions.   U10/U12/U14 ONLY: will get 3-5 fly balls in the outfield and will need to demonstrate the ability to catch the fly ball and throw to 2nd base.

Go Vikings!
