Gameday Team Tryouts

Tryouts for both Youth and HS players at the Arvada, CO location

Gameday Youth Tryouts (ages 9-14u)

The first step, is the tryout. Gameday operates teams across various age levels and ranges of competitiveness. If your player is interested in pursuing the tournament baseball world, we’d encourage you to sign up for an upcoming tryout to be assessed for our Gameday Arvada teams. Tryouts are meant to provide information to both coaches and players, so that teams are built with players of like ability. 

A Gameday tryout is more of an assessment of current skills sets compared to players of the same age. Following the youth tryouts, these grades for each player are released so players can understand areas of strengths and areas of weaknesses.

Tryouts are a great opportunity for players to measure themselves against players their age at the competitive level. Gameday uses tryouts to determine if players will be a good fit for existing teams and as an tool to built quality teams that are build with roster needs in mind. Every tryout experience is valuable but at Gameday, we try to build tryouts similar to a practice so we can use the small sample size to see a wider ranger of each players talents.

Communication Following a Tryout

Youth Tryouts – Following the tryouts, the information collected will be given to all of our youth coaches. At that time, if a youth coach is intersted in a player, they will reach out directly to the player to formally offer them a position onto their team. Often times, players will receive offers from multiple teams within the Gameday program and it will be up to them to decide which team is the best fit. Players should recieve communication from a Gameday youth coach within 72hrs following a tryout if they are interested, otherwise, the players information will be stored in the case their is a coach interested in them at a later date.

 

High School Tryouts – Following a tryout, the Gameday staff will review the player and determine if they are a good roster fit for any teams within the Gameday HS program. Players will recieve notification from Gameday within 72 hrs following their tryout.
