Spring Assessment Details and Appointments

Appointments are required!

We are thrilled that assessments are already here! Tremendous logistical planning goes into this event, which sees FCKLL host several hundred players over a single weekend at 2 separate sites. Full caregiver cooperation is needed to make this all work. Key to this is signing up for an appointment slot below, and sticking to that appointment time!

Please select your appointment slot here:

League Age 8-10  on Feb 25

League Age 11-12 on Feb 26

Skills Assessments Details
As per Little League's rules, FCKLL conducts skills assessments (aka evaluations) to determine the skill level of players and ensure that players are drafted at the most appropriate level and that teams are competitively balanced. At the skills assessment, the managers and coaches rate each player’s ability to hit, throw, run, field fly balls, and field ground balls. 

Timing and Dates

Plan for the skill assessment to last approximately 45-75 minutes from player drop-off. Only players, coaches and League officials are allowed at the assessment (we encourage parents to either remain in their vehicles or nearby - having dozens of parents watching kids assessing can create nervousness and we want this to be a fun activity!)

We strongly urge you to attend the date for your player’s age group. If you have circumstances that won't allow your player to attend the assessment for their age group or you have siblings in multiple divisions, please coordinate the date with our Player Agent

Who Must Attend?
Children who are League Ages 8-12, and who did NOT previously play on a FCKLL MAJORS team the previous SPRING, must participate in the skills assessment (i.e., rising 12-year-olds who played AAA last spring must assess; new players to the area must assess; returning Majors players do not assess). If you would like your 7-year old to have a skills assessment, please contact the Player Agent to discuss.

What to Bring
Residency/DOB documentation -- FCKLL asks you to submit all proof-of-residency documents, including three documents proving residency (i.e., property tax bill, rental agreement, utility bill, driver's license, etc.) and one document proving age (birth certificate or passport). 

Bat, Glove, Helmet, Water -- Players should come equipped to play ball.  Each player should bring his/her glove. Bats and helmets are normally provided, but feel free to bring your own bat/helmet, or contact the Player Agent to arrange for an un-shared bat/helmet.

Warm Clothing -- While the assessments will have portions indoors, players may wait outdoors for their appointment. For the assessments at Meridian HS, we will use both indoor and outdoor space. Please have players dress appropriately. 

Players will have a brief warm-up, conduct throwing, fielding, hitting, and running exercises. There will be instructors at each station, and a group of coaches observing and taking notes. Most players attending will be picking up a baseball for the first time in several months. There is no need to prep for assessments. 

Draft Eligibility
When the skills assessments are over and the scores are compiled, the Player Agent creates a list of players eligible for draft selection at each level by tabulating the scores each child receives for hitting, fielding, running and throwing.

Finally, and most importantly, please encourage your child to relax and enjoy the assessments. We promise to make it a fun experience!
