This is a TENTATIVE schedule. Much of this depends on the weather and what space we are allocated in the building. I will post times as soon as I know them on the website for each day. Tryouts could range from 1 ½ hours to 3 hours depending on what we have available. If we are indoors, it will be in the gym and wrestling room.
Tryout Requirements: In order to tryout, all players must have the following turned in by Thursday Feb. 15:
-A current VHSL physical to the training room
-An Emergency Care Card turned into Coach Ford
-Both Parent and Student Concussion Education Completed
Tryout Needs: Glove, Hat, Baseball clothes, Protective gear, Running/Indoor/Turf and Baseball shoes, Proper Outdoor Clothing. I do not have lockers to give out. You may need to look for ways to store your equipment during the school day (classroom, office, older players car, parents drop it off)
Tryout Procedures: Our goal is to have all players will tryout together however that depends on space. Our intention is to try and give players the maximum amount of opportunity to show us how they are as a baseball player. Each player will be evaluated by all the coaches in the program through our evaluation sheets. All coaches will participate in deciding each team. Tryouts can last 3 days if deemed sufficient, but may take more days. It is the player’s responsibility to take the opportunity to tryout in whatever positions you play.

The Baseball Program had an interest meeting on Thursday Oct. 5 afterschool. Information regarding our program and upcoming workouts was discussed. The following information was passed out:
Baseball Interest Meeting 10-5-17
-Please use www.chantillysports.org for information updates. You will need to check the Varsity or JV Baseball “News for Team” section for important information. Green Day (Out of season practice) and/or Conditioning days will be added at the beginning of every week if they are going to occur.
-Fall/Winter Green Days (Skill Work)-Practice days and times will vary. In-season athletes may not participate until their season is complete. Fall and Winter skill sessions are open to everyone but you must have the necessary paperwork turned in. You must check the websites for announcement of days. Green Days involve baseball activities and you will need baseball clothes and equipment for these days. We will designate some Pitching days and Fielding days. If you are a pitcher or a catcher, please try and make the Pitching days. Anyone can come and hit on either day.
-Green Days are an opportunity for everyone to get better, push each other, and begin to work together. These opportunities do not affect tryouts. Baseball is a sport that requires skills and fundamentals developed through maintenance and consistent practice in order to improve. We will be working on individual skills during these days. The coaches will be looking to provide players with instruction to help them become better players. There is a dead period from Nov. 7-Nov. 16 where we are unable to meet.
-For Green Days each player must have:
1) a current physical turned into the training room
2) an Emergency Care Card turned into Coach Ford in order to participate in any Skill Workouts.
