2019 Softball Evaluations Date

Little League requires players to attend at least one evaluation for Divisions where teams are formed by draft. KNLL's Local Rules specify that all Softball players Little League Aged 9 and above must attend an evaluation. This includes players registered at AAA, Coast, Majors, and Juniors. All players attending evaluations must be registered in KNLL before they attend to be covered by our league insurance. Failure to attend at an evaluation session could result in a player's forfeiture of league eligibility for the season.

At Coast and higher, when there is more than one team, KNLL uses its best efforts to form teams of parity. To do so, we must evaluate all players intending to be pitchers and catchers during the season in addition to evaluating those players at fielding grounders and pop flies, throwing, hitting, bunting, and running. Evaluation scores are then used to determine at which Division players will play and then draft order to build teams of parity.

This year's Evaluation will be for KNLL players only.
