Little League Tryouts This Week!

If you haven’t already registered for the 2015 season, now is the time to do so. You can register by going to our website (www.chandleramerican.com) or by clicking this link: https://www2.jevin.net/goto/Tb.go

Tryouts for the Minors and Majors divisions will take place this week. The purpose of tryouts is for the coaches to assess the abilities of the Minors and Majors players so that they can then attempt to create competitive balance among the teams for the 2015 season. All players who intend to play in these divisions are required to tryout.

All tryouts will take place at Nozomi Park (behind the aquatic center on Kyrene/Frye).

The first tryout will be held Wednesday, February 11th, starting at 6:00pm. All players are required to show up 30 minutes early to check in and warm up so that we are ready to begin promptly at 6pm.

The makeup tryout will be held on Saturday, February 14th starting at 9:30am. Again, please show up 30 minutes early.

All 8 year olds who would like a chance to play in Minors are required to tryout. Any 8 year old who does not try out will be placed in the Farm division.

All 10 year olds who would like a chance to play in Majors are also required to be assessed. Any 10 year old who does not try out will be placed in Minors division.

The League That Offers The Most Bang For Your Buck!

Chandler American Little League has always been a great place for your child to learn and develop his/her baseball skills in a fun, supportive environment but many people don’t realize how much each player gets with his registration fees (especially compared with similar leagues/club teams around the Valley).

Each player is provided with the following:

A full uniform including a jersey, hat, belt, socks and pants.
A full month of practice (minimum twice a week) on reserved fields.
Dedicated coaches and assistants who have volunteered hours of their time to help develop each player.
16-20 games (plus playoffs in Farm, Minors and Majors divisions).
Free Team Pictures and Individual Pictures (with the option to purchase more if desired).
Participation trophies for Tball and Farm players.
Tournament trophies for Farm, Minors and Majors.

All of this is included in registration fees which are $80 for Tball and Farm and $130 for Minors and Majors. A family cap is set at $250.
