Modified Tryouts for 2021 Competitive League Season

September is typically when we hold our 8-14 yr old Competitive League tryouts for the following spring season. We are planning for a healthy and successful Spring 2021 West Jeff Baseball season. In the interest of keeping our players, families, coaches, and volunteers safe, we will not be holding regular tryouts this fall, but will instead be honoring tryouts and team placements from the cancelled 2020 season. 

Due to the unique circumstances surrounding the Competitive League 8-year old and 9-year old teams, we will be holding a modified tryout for those age groups. These modified tryouts on Saturday, October 3, will be for players who did not participate in tryouts last fall, and who are interested in playing 8-year-old or 9-year-old Competitive baseball in spring 2021. More details on the modified tryouts, and the safety precautions we’ll adhere to, will be released soon.

What Does This Mean for Returning WJBB Competitive League Players?
Your team placements for our cancelled 2020 season will be honored and carried over for the 2021 season. Any player who would like to be considered for a different team placement (wanting to play in a higher age bracket than they normally would be playing, wanting to be considered for a higher-ranked team within their age bracket, or are interested in playing for a different coach) can indicate that during the registration process (which will be detailed in the weeks ahead).

WJBB is working on coach commitments; we will keep you posted on that information as it becomes available.

    —   Note for current 8th graders: Historically, WJBB players who are currently in 8th grade are eligible to try out in the fall/winter for local high school summer baseball programs. Evergreen and Conifer High Schools and WJBB anticipate working together again in the 2021 season to coordinate efforts between the EHS / CHS baseball program and booster clubs and the WJBB 14U team(s). Details to come.

What Does This Mean for New Competitive League Players?

• 8 yr olds (or current 2nd graders) moving into the Competitive program for the first time, will have the opportunity to participate in the modified tryouts on Oct. 3.  If we exceed participant numbers for one team, we will look to build additional teams.

• 9 yr olds (or current 3rd graders) moving into the Competitive program for the first time, or who did not try out last year, will have the opportunity to participate in modified tryouts on Oct. 3.

• Other players new to WJBB or the community – information about players and their experience will be gathered by the general manager and shared with the coaches to make our best attempt at matching skills and team placement. 

After much consideration, the WJBB Board voted unanimously for this plan. Watch for more details in the coming days and weeks ahead regarding Registration for the Spring 2021 season. 

We are excited and committed to get your kids safely back to playing baseball in the Spring!
