INDOOR TRYOUTS FOR OUR RESPECTIVE SELECT TEAMS CONTINUE THIS SATURDAY IN THE GYM AT HARBORD COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE
Tryouts for the 2016 Toronto Playgrounds Select teams in the Rookie Ball (2007-2008), Mosquito (2005-2006), and Peewee (2003-2004) divisions will continue this Saturday, January 23. The times are listed below by year of birth.
For players and parents who require more information as to how we operate our Select program, please click on the following link for a description of the TP Select Baseball program .
The select teams will play one game a week and have one practice (or some weeks two) in addition to their participation in our house league program. Players who make the select teams but who then do not take part in house league will forfeit their spots. In order to take part in our select tryouts, players have to be registered in our house league program…that means a completed registration form has to be handed in and the fee has to be paid. If you are planning to attend a Select tryout this Saturday and you haven’t already handed or sent in a registration form, please return the registration form with payment to the Bob Abate Community Centre (485 Montrose Avenue) by this Friday, January 22 at 5:00 p.m. If that is absolutely not possible, then bring it to the Harbord gym on Saturday.
This year we are going to require the house league fee to be paid prior to attending a tryout. If you haven’t already paid and you are not able to pay the entire fee by Saturday you will still be required to pay a $25.00 fee before participating in the tryouts. This fee will be applied to your houseleague registration, so if you pay $25.00 on Saturday you will owe the registration fee minus $25.00. If you paid this $25.00 fee last Saturday you don’t have to pay it again.
Please note that our regular refund policy, which is described on the registration form, does not include this $25.00 fee. In other words, if you register for houseleague, attend select tryouts, and then withdraw from house league before May 1, you will be refunded your fee minus $25.00.
The TP Select Team tryout times for each age group are as follows:
- 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon > players born in 2003
- 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. > players born in 2004
- 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. > players born in 2007
- 2:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. > players born in 2008
- 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. > players born in 2005
- 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. > players born in 2006
There will be three weeks of tryouts open to anyone who is interested (Saturday January 16, 23, and 30), so it is obviously important that players interested in select make it out to at least one of those three tryouts. After January 30th the coaches will be letting people know which players will be invited to continue through the tryout process and which players won’t, and at that point the Rookie Ball and Mosquito players remaining for the tryouts will be attending for ninety minutes rather than forty-five.
The tryouts will take place in the gym at Harbord Collegiate Institute (286 Harbord Street), which is located on the north side of Harbord Street between Euclid Ave. and Manning Ave.To enter the school, people must use Door # 5, which is located at the northeast corner of the school off Euclid Ave. Once you go in that door follow the signs to the gym. Parking is available in the underground school lot as well as on the street. Do not park on school property other than the underground lot. The entrance to the lot is off Euclid Ave. just north of door # 5.
