All players will be required to attend “Player Evaluations” Mid-April after which equal strength teams will be created.
We will have 2~4 equal strength house teams that will play in a league with other Interior House Teams.

If there are enough Players Interested, a Summer All-Star team can be formed to continue playing through Jul/Aug.
• Double-AA Single Season $450 – This offers a great opportunity for players to play ball at a higher more competitive level from late Mar to early Aug
Interested players are required to indicate their interest by Feb.12 and will have to attend Try-Outs in March.
Players trying out but not selected will have to attend house player evaluations and will be placed on a house team.
