What is the purpose of assessments?

  • Assessments allow us to collect performance data for the player draft, helping to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of talent across all teams in a division.
  • Players are evaluated on fielding, hitting, and pitching.
  • Evaluators look for form and strength relative to other players of the same age.
  • Players' assessment scores are confidential to Madison LL and are not published or otherwise made known beyond the evaluators and the MLL Board members and coaches involved in the player drafts.

What to bring

  • All players must bring a fielding glove.
  • Players may bring their own bat and batting helmet; these items also will be available at the assessment.
  • Players must wear sneakers (no cleats).

Procedures on assessment day

  • Please arrive five minutes before your scheduled time to check in.
  • Park in Lot 2 on the far side of Madison HS (near the soccer fields, not the tennis courts).
  • Enter through the gym lobby entrance.
  • Parents are not permitted in the gym during assessments.
  • Parents should not leave the premises - the assessment should take less than one hour.
