The WYBSL conducts 2 different types of player assessments based upon league of play (there are no Tee-Ball assessments):
  1. Play-up Assessments: MANDATORY for those who registered to play in an "older" age division league.
  2. Skill Assessments: are not mandatory but participation is strongly encouraged. These assessments are conducted to help balance team selection either by draft of staff assignment.

Skill assessments are only conducted for certain leagues:
  • Blue Hat Softball: these assessments help league staff balance team selection.
  • Green/Red Hat Softball: assessments are used for coaches to draft teams.
  • Green/Red/Blue/Black Hat Baseball: assessments are used for coaches to draft teams.
  • Players who cannot attend their skill assessment are assigned to teams using a blind draw/“age and alphabet” assignment or by Staff.

Assessments are scheduled for Saturday, March 27th. The rain date will be Sunday, March 28th with times 3 hours later than the Saturday schedule. Should this also rain out, the next make-up will be April 10th.

Please see our newsletter to reference important Play-up and Skill Assessment details on p. 6. You can also find times and locations for each league on the calendar on p. 8.

Things certainly seem to be improving but please remember, it's everyone's responsibility to help prevent the spread of COVID. The WYBSL implemented COVID Safety Guidelines last fall and will once again be following them this spring. Please keep in mind, these are subject to change due to State and Local requirements.
