Tryout Process (Alvinston Minor Ball)

PrintTryout Process

It is the intention of the Alvinston Minor Ball Association to provide all players with an opportunity to attend tryouts for their respective team. All players are welcome and encouraged to tryout.

Players trying out for an OBA or PWSA team are reminded to please only attend if you are willing to make the commitment and dedication for the full season to your team.

Tryouts will begin September/October for the following season with tryout dates posted to our website.

A minimum of 3 tryout dates will be scheduled. Players are required to attend two of the tryout dates but encouraged to attend all to achieve their highest evaluation.
If you are unable to attend the minimum 2 dates, please email [email protected] and we will try to consider an alternative solution.

Players will be assessed and scored separately by three individual evaluators, one of which may be the coach with at least one outside individual not associated with the team acting as an evaluator. Players will be evaluated on the fundamental skills of baseball including catching, throwing, fielding, hitting and base running. Attitude and teamwork will also be considered.

At the completion of tryouts, the player’s highest evaluations will be used in selecting the team. Consistent scores from all tryouts will be a contributing factor in selecting players for a team.

We thank all players for trying out, those who are not successful in making an OBA or PWSA team will play for the Riverhawks at the River League or Lambton Central Girls Softball League levels.


Refund Policy:

All registration refunds will be subject to a $25.00 administration fee, and do not include any tryout fees paid.

This tryout process has been adopted by the Alvinston Minor Ball Executive – for the 2024 season
