2017 WSBL tryouts
Dear Parents and Players,
In preparation for our 2017 Western Suburban Baseball League (WSBL) Spring Baseball season LJAL Baseball will be holding tryouts for teams starting at 9U through 14U based on your age as of 4-30-2017.
We want to encourage all eligible Livonia and Clarenceville school district baseball players to attend tryouts scheduled for the first weekend in August for teams playing against other local communities including Canton, Garden City, Westland, Wayne, and more.
Our goal is to establish 2-3 teams to represent Livonia in the WSBL and each age group offers a different number of potential players so we encourage all players to attend the free two day tryout on Friday/Saturday and invitation only Sunday tryout.
Please review the following times and make sure your player arrives 30 minutes early for check-in. Players will have time to warm up scheduled into the tryout start times so your player should be on the field and ready to go promptly at their assigned time.
Friday August 5th
9U is the first level of WSBL teams for Livonia and will be evaluating as many players as possible with the goal of creating two new teams.
Saturday August 6th
Rotary #1 9am 14U/13U
Rotary #1 12pm 12U/11U
Rotary #1 3pm 10U/9U
All age groups will be represented today and will be the last day for open tryouts.
All players are strongly encouraged to tryout for their designated age group regardless of potential team openings as players will be evaluated by a representative from every WSBL coaching staff for the opportunity to attend the final invitation only evaluation on Sunday, August 7th.
All players selected by LJAL Directors or WSBL Coaches to attend the final evaluation day on Sunday, August 7th will be notified immediately after the conclusion of their age specific tryout during an event ending meeting.
All players not selected to attend the Sunday tryout are strongly encouraged to continue to refine their skills and abilities in the LJAL House Program.
Sunday, August 7th INVITATION ONLY
The Sunday WSBL tryout will include all players specifically invited from tryouts Friday and Saturday as well as many returning players from the previous 2016 WSBL season.
The goal of the invitation only Sunday tryout is to allow potential WSBL players to practice alongside returning WSBL players in order to provide WSBL coaches with the best reference for choosing the best representatives for our LJAL baseball teams playing in the WSBL.
All returning 2016 WSBL players are strongly encouraged to attend tryouts Sunday, August 7th during their age specific time.
Sunday August 7th
Rotary #1 9am 14U
Rotary #2 10am 13U
Rotary #4 11am 12U
Rotary #1 12pm 11U
Rotary #2 1pm 10U
Rotary #4 2pm 9U
An age specific draft will be scheduled the following week and players attending the invitation only Sunday tryout will be contacted with their individual draft results.
All players drafted by WSBL teams may be expected to provide a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to secure their position as well as additional requirements including but not limited to winter practices and tournament commitments.
