2020 SKILLS ASSESSMENT  |  CHIEF KANIM MIDDLE SCHOOL  |  32627 SE REDMOND-FALL CITY RD, FALL CITY 

On Sunday, January 26, 2020 we will host our annual skills assessments for ALL Baseball and Softball League Age Players 8*, 9, 10, 11, 12.  

*If League Age 8 player, you must have requested "play-up" in your registration submission and attend a League Age 9-assessment period for AAA evaluation.


Purpose and Goal of Skills Assessment

Falls Little League approved Managers facilitate the skills assessment to evaluate and score the skill set of all players. All players will be rated on throwing and catching, ground balls, pop-ups, pitching and hitting. The data is aggregated and utilized during the Draft process for AAA, Coast, and Majors teams to ensure parity across all teams, all divisions. This is not a try-out. All registered players will be selected to a team.
