Jr. Sabers Tryout Frequently Asked Questions

Updated Saturday August 6, 2016 by Franklin Little League.

How do I register for the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team tryout and skill assessment?

Print and fill out the one-page form and bring it 15 minutes prior to your assessment window.  This form will be collected by the coordinator and then given to the manager/coach who will be performing the assessments.

What is the age level an athlete should try out for the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team?

We follow the Little League rule for age ranges in both baseball and softball for the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team.  An athlete cannot be older than the “Little League Age” age they are trying out for.  If you have any questions on ages please inquire prior to the tryout and skill assessment date.  On the tryout and skill assessment date, our volunteers will only be collecting completed forms and conducting the actual skill assessments to make the process move as smoothly as possible.  

Please do not attend another age group's tryout session as you may miss your own time try out time and will not be assessed during a different age group's time.

What do I need to bring to the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team tryout and the skill assessment?

We encourage all athletes to come to the fields prepared to play, just like you would on a game day.  Please also consider bringing a water!

How much does it cost to try out for the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team?  

It is free to try out!

When will I find out if I made the Jr. Sabers Tournament Team?  

The manager will make initial offers within 5 days of the final tryout date.  This is done via email, so please make sure you fill out the registration form legibly and with an email that you check on a regular basis.  If an athlete declines or does not respond within 2 days of the offer, the spot will be considered “not accepted” and the manager will be allowed to move forward with his/her next choice.  These timelines will be strictly enforced to allow consistency, predictability, and fairness to all athletes.  Please do not ask if the rules can be altered to meet your personal circumstances.
