Player Evaluations by Coaches
We ask all head coaches of Tadpole and Mosquito division spring teams especially to please use the Player Progress Reports in their Google Sheets Coach Workbook to complete a player evaluation to provide feedback to the player and the player’s parents. Other division coaches are also welcome to use it too.
The model can be used at any point in the season, however, it should be used at least at or near the end of the season (spring and summer).
This evaluation is another example of how we try to improve our players’ baseball skills, knowledge and sportsmanship to deliver on our core values.

Player Evaluations by Independent Evaluators (May/June and February)
The general evaluations are used primarily to help with next season’s team forming to keep teams balanced and to make sure players are playing in the correct tier/skill level within their division. The general evaluations are held for players who will be playing in the Mosquito division and older.
It is a fun hour and a half at the ballpark in May/June or February, if the May/June evaluation is missed, where players will go through a number of different stations not unlike what they would do during a team practice. The stations include fielding, fly balls, hitting and pitching. To be as fair as possible, the players are identified only by an assigned number and the evaluations are conducted by independent evaluators.
Summer Ball Evaluations
The Summer Ball Evaluation is an additional evaluation session held for players interested in playing summer ball. It is held after the general evaluations and is usually run by the summer ball coaches. In 2019, summer ball evaluations were by invitation only based on the general evaluation rating for the players.
