9U (Tadpole) Evaluations 2019

December 28, 2018

The 9U (Tadpole) Evaluations will be held on the following date and time:

Date: Saturday, March 9, 2019

Time: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Note: Your specific evaluation time slot will be emailed directly to you shortly.

Location: Lions Gate Christian Academy, in the enclosed “bubble”, next to the gravel field

Address: 919 Tollcross Road, North Vancouver, BC V7H 2G3

In order to form the most appropriate teams possible at the 9U (Tadpole) division, the NSBA requests all 9U (Tadpole) players to attend an NSBA Spring Evaluation. While the main criteria for creating 9U (Tadpole) teams is friend requests and school groups, the NSBA relies on these evaluations also to help create evenly skilled teams.


Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time. Proceed to check-in your child and collect a numbered pinnie. Once your child is registered and pinnie is collected, due to the timing, the volume of players, and space factors we ask that you drop your child off and pick them up at the end of the evaluation. Players will be called when it is their turn to take the field. We will be processing and evaluating a high number of players and would appreciate your assistance in making the process run as quickly and efficiently as possible.


Players should come dressed in normal practice attire.

  • baseball hat
  • shirt (no names on shirt)
  • baseball pants (no shorts)
  • protective jock/jill
  • runners (no spikes or soccer shoes)

Equipment: baseball glove, batting helmet, bat and water bottle (we will also have NSBA bats on-site)

Evaluation Day:

The evaluation day will consist of three different stations for the players:

  1. Fielding
  2. Throwing/Pitching
  3. Hitting

Each station will last approximately 10 minutes, for a total evaluation time per group of approximately 30 minutes. Upon completion of all three evaluation stations, please ensure your child returns the pinnie and leaves the baseball surface immediately and is free to go. The next group of players will immediately be getting ready to enter as we are very tight for time.

We have over 100 players in the 9U (Tadpole) division and are very tight on time. Unfortunately, based on gym time and the number of players registered, we must assign times. The 9U Coordinator will send an email to you letting you know what time your child is scheduled to be evaluated. If you are unsure of your child’s evaluation time, please contact the 9U Coordinator. We will not be able to accommodate any change requests.

** If your child is unable to attend this session, they will score zero on the evaluation. However, rest assured, they will still be placed on a team. **
