Due to current field conditions and weather, “Try-Outs” that were due to take place this weekend (Sat. Feb. 28th & Sun. Mar. 1st) for the Spring NKYA Baseball 2015 Season have officially been CANCELED. There will be no “Try-Outs” this weekend for the Rookie, Minor, & Major Divisions. We will be accepting registrations online thru Sat. Feb 28th and we will also have a registration desk set up at The New Kent Parks & Rec Building on Sunday, March 1st, from 1 – 3. Any registrations that are received after Sunday, March 1st, past 3 pm will be considered “late” and roster spots will be granted on availability only.

Our league draft for the Rookie, Minor, and Major Divisions will be held this Sunday, March 1st, starting at 3 pm. The draft will be considered a “Blind Draft” since we are not able to hold “Try-Outs”. (T-Ball and Intro T-Ball Division rosters will be announced at some point next week.)
Several parents have asked about why we have tryouts and whether their child will need to participate.
Tryouts are for the Rookie, Minor, and Major leagues. There are no T-Ball tryouts.
Tryouts are set to occur on Saturday, February 28 at 10:00 am at the Historic School Complex Fields weather permitting.
All kids who register will be on a team. As a “Rec Ball” organization, we would not turn any child away who wants to participate in our league regardless of ability.
Tryouts are a means for coaches to evaluate kids’ skill levels so that they can be more informed of a particular player’s skills and abilities. This information can sometimes be helpful to managers during the draft process as children are assigned to teams.
