2.  Q: How does the evaluation and selection process occur?

 

A: West Linn HS coaches/ Board Members are the evaluators and will select players for the upcoming season.  The tryouts will consist of pitching, catching, fielding, hitting and scrimmage.  Players are expected to attend both tryouts to be considered for the team. 

 

3.  Q: How much does 2021 Select cost and what does that include?

 

A:  The registration fee for WL Select is $250. ($50 is non-refundable tryout fee).  The total cost for Select is $1750 per player.  WLBA will have various payment options to choose from.

 

The fee includes insurance, chartering, league expenses pro-rata, practice fields, WLHS Winter Camps, WLHS Batting Cage time, equipment, tournament entry fees and full uniforms.

 

All players will also have access to attend winter workouts at WLHS batting cage, as well as HS field use.  The dates and times for winter workouts are in the process of being determined and will be scheduled for the upcoming season as COVID allows.

 

The goal of each team is to play 35+ games over the course of March – July with one-off games and tournaments.

 

4. Q: How long does West Linn Select season last?

 

A: Limited practice will begin in January and run through July (possibly August). All State Tournaments will be held in July.  All teams will play in the Northern Oregon Cal Ripken State Tournament.  Regional Tournaments for State Champions will be held in late July/ beginning of August.  Cal Ripken World Series has a path for all age brackets.  The World Series will be held in August for all three levels if Regionals is won.

 

5. Q: Where are the tournaments held and what kind of travel can I expect?

 

Most all tournaments are in Portland, Vancouver and Salem areas with exception for Regionals and World Series.  Most of the tournament happen on the weekend with limited amount of overnight travel.  Coaches will work to schedule games in the area.  There are plenty of local tournaments in the area to play in. 

 

6. Q: Are there other costs associated with Select Baseball?

 

A: Yes, there are additional costs associated with travel, additional fundraising, snacks, food, etc.  Travel cost for all parents and kids are covered by each family.  WLBA does not cover any travel or food costs.  Each team can fundraise to cover these costs.  Coaches are briefed on this prior to the season starting and can certainly raise money to cover some of these costs. 

 

7. Q: What is the time commitment on practice and game schedule?

 

A: Practice: Teams can practice up to 3-4 times per week.  The amount of time for each practice is scheduled by their individual coaches.  Some teams also hold some additional hitting cage slots over and above the practice time.

 

Games/Tourneys: Tournaments generally are held on the weekend but can start on Friday during the summer and conclude on Sunday’s.  

 

During the months of January – March 15th coaches can schedule practices, but on a limited basis.  Schedules will be set by the coaches.

 

8. Q: How many teams will we have at each level?

 

A: We will field up to 2 teams at each level depending upon skill levels and number of players to tryout. 

 

9. Q: What is the season is cancelled or delayed due to COVID or issues out of the control of the WLBA?

 

A: If WLBA is required to cancel all or a portion of the 20201 Select season, a refund will be based on expenses incurred by the WLBA and the “per player cost” associated with providing infrastructure for the Select program.

 

Thank you, stay safe, healthy and we can’t wait to start the next season!
