Evaluations

The Spring Season will kick off on Sunday, March 27, 2022, with our annual player evaluations.

For those new to AGSL or Evaluation Day, this is not a tryout so there’s nothing for your player to worry about, it’s just an opportunity for our coaches to assess skill levels so we can build balanced teams for the season. 

This year the evaluations will take place in the Andover High School Field House.

Evaluation Schedule by Division

Juniors (3rd/4th grade)
11:00 AM-12:45 PM evaluations

Majors (5th/6th grade)
12:45-2:30 PM evaluations

Seniors (7th/8th grade)
2:30-4 PM evaluations

If you cannot make your division’s time slot, e-mail registrar@andoversoftball.org to come at another time slot or be evaluated during our season kickoff clinic on March 20.

Tee Ball and Minors will not have evaluations.

What Players Should Bring

Players should bring their bat, glove, and helmet. If your player will not have access to that equipment for Evaluation Day, e-mail registrar@andoversoftball.org ahead of time and we can make arrangements to use AGSL equipment. 

Players should wear comfortable but warm clothing as it may be a little chilly in the field house.

Players should NOT wear softball cleats.

Players can bring a water bottle.

Arrival and Departure

Please enter at the Field House doors closest to the tennis courts.

You will be asked to provide your completed documents and register for your player’s Evaluation Number Bib. Please assist you player in attaching this bib to their clothing in the Front. We will have hand sanitizer at the registration table for players to apply.

Players will be exiting the Field House at the door closest to the back of the building.

NOTE: Please make sure players have used the bathroom before coming to the evaluation since there may not be access to the fieldhouse bathrooms.

Equipment Drive

On Evaluation Day, AGSL will be collecting gently used bats, helmets, gloves, cleats, catchers gear, pants, and softball backpacks/bags, especially equipment for use by our Tee Ball and Minors players.

So if you are doing some spring cleaning and have unused softball equipment cluttering your closets, help us out and bring them with you!
