Evaluations

SAVE THE DATES- EVALUATIONS START MARCH 9th

We will be following a new evaluation format this year to make sure that players are on skill appropriate and balanced teams.  Evaluations will be mandatory for players wishing to play this year on Tier 1 or 2 teams in the U10- U14 divisions. We request that all other players attend but it will not be mandatory. Calgary Minor Softball has requested that all teams for each age division be tiered. Evaluations will consist of two components. ALL players will take part in the Skills Evaluation sessions. Based on their overall skill evaluation standings, some girls will be invited to the Game Play Evaluation sessions. Teams will be finalized by April 6, 2019. Your team coach will contact you. 


The Fury will also hold separate evaluation sessions for potential pitchers this year. These sessions are for those players who would like to play on the top Tiers or travel teams. Only U10 and U12 pitchers with experience need to attend these sessions. All U14/U16 pitchers must attend. Pitchers need their own catcher for warm up.


Girls MUST try out for, and be selected to play on a Tier 1 or Tier 2 team. Girls MUST be registered for Spring play in order to evaluate.  If your daughter is interested in trying out for a Tier 1 or Tier 2 team, they MUST attend the below scheduled evaluations for their age group. Once selected to play on a tiered team players must be completely committed to their team for the duration of the season.** Please read and bring completed Tier 1 Evaluation Form to evaluations.


Any players who are interested in trying out to “play up“ (in the age category above where they belong) are invited to do so. Please note:

  • Girls wishing to play up (or down) MUST contact fury@foothillssoftball.ca and inform of their wishes. **Please note that we must balance teams, and any player who wants to play outside their category MUST evaluate to ensure they can safely play with older/younger girls. There is no guarantee that a player will be granted a spot on a team for an age category above or below where they belong** 
  • Girls can only try out to play up if they are second year of their current age category.
  • For a girl to be play up on a tier 1 team they must evaluate overall in the top 3 of the age group they wish to play in.
