Purpose and Goal of Skills Assessment 

  • Falls Little League approved Board Members and 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.
