Little League Families,
Tryout and evaluation dates have been scheduled. Please save the dates- March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.  
All the sessions will be held at the Rye Elementary School gym (461 Sagamore Road).
All players will be asked to arrive 15 minutes early to their scheduled event. Parents are kindly asked to accompany their child to registration to ensure proper drop off, and all paperwork has been filled out, as well as to allow for an on-time process. A quick introduction to both parents and players will precede the tryout or evaluation session. Following the introduction parents can wait in the lobby, or run an errand if need be, but will not be allowed to watch the tryout. We ask this of parents so the players can focus on the tasks requested of them.  Board members, Julie Derderian and Sav Huskey, will oversee the registration and introductory meeting. They will take any questions that you may have. Board members, Jeff Ross and Steve McManus, will oversee the tryouts and evaluations inside the gym. 
Players should already be registered before arriving. All players will receive a tryout "number” upon arrival. Players should bring their own baseball gear (glove, helmet and a water bottle) and dress appropriately (sneakers, not cleats and athletic clothing) for baseball drills (throwing, catching, and batting).  
Please save-the-date based on your registration. RLL will assign each player a time slot when registration closes this week.
Players trying out for Major League- Day 1- MANDATORY
Monday March 2nd
This session is for players Little League age 9-12 that have had at least two years of experience at AAA and want to tryout for Majors. Your son or daughter will be assigned to one of the two times.  
We strongly recommend players come for two tryouts, Monday and Tuesday, as this will allow for a more informed assessment. Please note that the open spots for the Major League level are limited and not everyone trying out will make this level.   
  • 5:00-6:00 (Please show up at 4:45p)
  • 6:00-7:00 (Please show up at 5:45p)

Players Trying Out for Major League - Day 2- MANDATORY

Tuesday March 3rd
  • 5:00-6:00 (please show up at 4:45p)
  • 6:00-7:00 (please show up at 5:45p)
Wednesday March 4th
This session is for players registered to play AAA. It would be good for these players to have experienced at least one (if not two) year/s at the AA level.  AAA level requires the understanding of throwing, catching and hitting from live kid pitchers. 
  • 5:00-6:00 (please show up at 4:45p)
  • 6:00-7:00 (please show up at 5:45p)
Again to reiterate the Major League tryouts and AAA evaluations are required to determine skill level and readiness for league play and to keep all RLL teams evenly matched as well as to keep all players safe. Safety is our top concern to ensure all players are placed in the appropriate league. 
In 2019 we made the decision to move to 3 Major League Teams based on the number of children in town. This allowed the top players to remain motivated to play competitive baseball, but also kept the AAA league strong too, allowing these players to gain more confidence as they continue developing their skills.  
Players will be notified of team placement by March 20th and all registration fees will be adjusted accordingly. 
Rye Little League is very excited to start the 2020 season and we look forward to seeing you all and watching our kids play this great game!
