Dear all prospective players I would like to inform you that our 2014 tryouts have concluded, however I would like to let you know that we will more than likely continue our tradition of mid-season tryouts for those that were not here to participate. In the meantime if you would like to join a team please continue to use the contact us form and the forums to engage prospective teams.
The 2014 pre-season tryout was the best turn out that we have had in the last 4-5 years and best of all over 85% of the people that attended have joined their teams. A couple of people choose to not be drafted because of the wood bat division filling up their rosters pretty quickly, however if they would have been ok playing with aluminum bats we would have hit 100%.
I hear rumors that the schedule was released at the coach’s meeting this past Sunday, we look forward to posting it soon.
Rain of Shine!
Seattle NABA will be holding tryouts on Sunday, March 9th at Lower Woodland Park, on the corner of 50th and Green Lake. This is one of Seattle’s finest fields with a new and improved layout, overseen by the Seattle Mariners field crew personally.
What you need to know and bring on the 9th:
1) Any and all sporting equipment that you feel is necessary for you to perform optimally at your position. This would include your glove, bat, helmet, glasses, etc. if you are a catcher and would like to tryout for this position it would be well advised to wear a cup and bring your gear if you have it. We will have minimal equipment on hand, though we will have bats if you would like to use one.
2) Please be prepared to pay your $395 league fee via cash check or chard. You will not pay unless a team picks you up, however we try and find a team for everyone. If for some reason you are not drafted your name will be placed on a list for teams that are looking for additional players.
3) Bring a bright and cheerful smile as we will all continue to be the boys of summer in our hearts as we partake on the 2014 season together.
4) The field opens up at 5pm sharp on Sunday March 9th, Please arrive a little early to fill out paperwork, remember it is daylight savings so please be on time.
