Player Assessments

SomeĀ players may be required to attend assessments. If so, you must sign up in advance for an assessment time slot. Please read the information below carefully, and click the button below to sign up. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Please note: if you are new to Madison LL, you will also need to provide the required new player documents, which can be brought to Assessments. Players who are new and League Age 7 or younger, only need to bring the new player documents - they do not need to sign up for an Assessment time slot.

What we look for

  • 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 wear a face covering, and bring their fielding glove, bat and batting helmet (if they have a bat/helmet).
  • Players must wear sneakers (no cleats).
  • Players who are new to Madison LL will need to provide the required proof of residency and proof of age documents. Please bring the original documents - they will be reviewed and immediately returned to you.
