April 2017

Dear Players and Parents:

We are pleased to announce the AWJGBC tryouts for the 2018 season. As in previous years, we will not be accepting players from outside the Anthony Wayne Area School District.   

All players that want to be considered for a team must attend at least one tryout so they can be evaluated. Each age division will have two tryout sessions. Please note, it is the age your son is on April 30th, 2018 that decides which team he should tryout for. For example, if your son is 13 on April 30th, 2018, he should tryout for the U-13 Team. One other consideration is your son’s grade. For example, if your son is in 7th grade in the 2017-2018 school year, you should consider having him try out for the U-13 team, even though he might be able to play U-12 from an age standpoint. You want to try and play with your grade if you can.

All tryouts will be held at Bluecreek Fields on the corner of Providence Street and Stiles Road in Whitehouse, Ohio. 

Note: Each team reserves the right to hold additional tryouts. 
 

Each player must register on the AWYF Website.  All players will be evaluated by using the same rating system.  There is no guarantee that a player who was on one of the AWJGBC teams in 2017 will make the 2018 AWJGBC team for next season.  Once the tryouts are completed, coaches will select the players.  Please note, depending on interest and skill, if we have enough players at a certain age level we may have two teams. 

The player fees for 2018 will be $650 and due in two equal payments of $325 on September 15,2017 and December 1,2017. Players will not be allowed to participate in the winter practices until the fee is paid.  Each team will play approximately 30-40 games which will include up to 4 tournaments. We start winter practices late January. We encourage our players to play other sports and their winter sports come before baseball.
