Season Kick-Off Clinics and Evaluation Sessions


All Cal Ripken players (grades K - 7th*) will kick-off their season with skills development and evaluation clinics.  These sessions were developed by New Canaan Baseball to provide the players a little “Spring Training” and get them excited and prepared for the upcoming baseball season.   All events will occur at Bobby Valentine's Sports Academy (BVSA) located at 4 Largo Drive, Stamford, CT 06907

All registered players are expected to attend these sessions with their respective grade and last name.  We expect roughly 250 kids to participate this weekend, so please attend in your specified time slot. That said, players who are unable to make evaluation sessions (vacation, illness, etc.) are still assured a place on a team for the 2018 season.

 * Note:  7th graders that are 12 yrs old as of 4/30/18 only


New Canaan Baseball Player Evaluations (Saturday, March 17th) Time Slots for Grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th**


The event will be held at BVSA located at 4 Largo Drive, Stamford, CT 06907.  Players will participate in warm-up drills and then rotate through evaluation stations on Fielding, Throwing, Catching, Hitting and Pitching.

We divided the Registration into smaller groups based upon participant feedback in effort to reduce the total evaluation time for all players and parents.   4th, 3rd and 2nd graders have been into two groups per grade on a strictly alphabetical basis to balance the amount of players participating in each time slot.
