Tryouts for our 8-14 YO Competitive teams take place once per year in mid-September. This year's tryout is Sunday, September 16, 2018 at Evergreen High School baseball field. Find tryout times on our home page.
This skill evaluation tests players in a number of areas: hitting, fielding ground balls, base running, catching fly balls, long toss, and pitching.
Coaches typically start drafting teams in mid-October...these teams will play the following Spring. Practices can begin anywhere from January to March, depending on the coach. Games start the end of March and go through the end of June. As a courtesy to your teammates, their families, and the opposing teams, it is important that WJBB players/families follow through with their baseball commitment each year and complete the scheduled season they sign up for.
Registration for tryouts generally opens in August. Attendance at these tryouts is required for all players seeking to find a spot on a competitive West Jeff Baseball team. The fee for competitive baseball is $275. This fee includes game and practice fields, umpires, skills clinics, equipment, and insurance.
League games are typically played on week nights; half in the Evergreen area, half at fields in the Denver metro area. This leaves weekends open for those teams that wish to participate in tournament play.
Players can become part of the Competitive league starting at age 8. They must be 8 by April 30 to play with the 8-yr-old division. However, RMJBL rules allow players to join teams that reflect their grade age, even if they've not met the age cutoff.
