About the Skills Assessment

All Snoqualmie Valley Little League players registered for Upper Division baseball and softball are required to attend the mandatory Skills Assessment.  The assessment is not a try-out as there are no "cuts" in Little League. Instead, these assessments assist our managers in creating balanced and competitive teams during the player draft.

Farm League players from Single-A that are requesting to Play Up to AA are required to attend assessments for the opportunity to Play Up.

Players that will play Tee Ball or Single-A baseball or Softball will not attend assessments.

There is no Skills Assessment for baseball players at the Intermediate level and above or softball players at Juniors or above.

Check Your Players League Age

Unsure what your players League Age is, please use the Little League Age Determination Tool.
