Evaluations


2023 Fastball St. Albert Player Evaluations (U11, U13B/C, U15B/C, U17B/C)

This year we will be using sign up genius to help multi sport athletes and those with busy schedules select an evaluation time that works best for them. Make-up date options will also be added as needed at a later date. Players will need to attend the sessions below or the 1 alternative make up date provided in order to be considered for a competitive B team or in the case of U11 competitive A team. At the U11 age group, there is an A level and then all remaining teams with no letter category. The U13 age level is where B and C levels are introduced. This is in alignment with the structure of GEMSA and Softball Alberta.

We will share the sign up genius link as soon as it is available, for now, save the dates!

Please note the following:

  • Team level and how many teams at each level there will be will not be determined until evaluations are complete - these decisions are made based on data collected at evaluations
  • Any athlete who is not concerned with making an A team (U11) or a competitive B (U13/15/17) team is not required to attend evaluations. Attendance is helpful in order to balance teams however not required. If you prefer not to attend evaluations, please send notification to evaulationdirector@fastballstalbert.ca This will help our resource planning to know in advance!
  • Once the initial evaluations have occurred, coaches will be selected based on applications received and the player evaluations of applicant's athlete (where the coach has applied to coach their child). To coach at the B level the coach's athlete needs to evaluate in the window of the B level athletes. The A(U11)/B(U13/15/17) coach(s) will be selected and a subsequent evaluation(s) is to occur to make a final team(s) selection at the A(U11)/B (U13/15/17) level. In some cases there may be more than 1 additional evaluation, particularly where there is more than 1 coach/team at that level to be decided on.
  • Once the A(U11)/B(U13/15/17) level team(s) have been finalized, all remaining coaches will be selected and remaining teams formed.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this process which has many moving parts and can take some time. We aim to have all teams formed by late March.
