Assessment Information
Posted Feb 18, 2020

Assessments are this weekend! Below are a few things about assessments: 

  • All players at the Minor, Junior and Senior level are required to come to assessments. All players will be placed on a team, but we use assessments to determine the correct level of play. If you can’t come this weekend, you must come to the make up time listed below.
  • Sign ups for each session begin 30 minutes prior – we will start promptly at the time listed.
  • Please continue to check your email this week – we don’t anticipate having to change the schedule, but due to the lighting issues at the facility, we may end up having to modify this schedule.
  • Payment is required by assessments. If you have a balance due, please log in to your account from our home page by clicking the Member Login link at the top right and make a credit/debit card payment OR bring a check to assessments.
  • Assessments will be held at the High School Indoor Hitting Facility.
  • Wear proper baseball attire with tennis shoes – NO cleats allowed in facility. Bring glove, helmet, and bat.
  • Do not bring food or water into facility, except water and Gatorade in tightly sealed containers.
  • Teams will be formed after all makeups are completed and coaches have had a chance to meet – typically this happens within 2 weeks of assessments. You will receive a welcome email from your coach when the team assignments are complete.

 

 
Federal Level Announcement
Posted Nov 15, 2019

Note About Federal Levels Changes This Year:

JBO has three levels of play: National is the entry level, then American, then Federal. We typically field one Federal team for each grade division (Minor, Junior, Senior).

This season the Pioneer Youth Sports (PYS) board has voted to implement a rule that would only allow 4th, 6th and 8th graders to play on a Federal level team in their respective age divisions.  We, the board, would like to offer a set of core reasons that we decided to enact this rule.

  • This rule will allow for more players to remain together from season to season.  This will increase continuity in coaching staff and teams as well as physical and emotional development among players.  This produces better team cohesion with other players and with coaches and allows players of the same age level and similar ability to develop together.
  • A goal of the baseball program at PYS is to produce the best players into the Oregon City High School program and allow them to be fully prepared with an easy transition.  Allowing the younger grade levels in each division a year to grow, become accustom to longer base paths and longer pitching distances, and gain additional emotional maturity before moving to the Federal level is not only a benefit to those players, but it also benefits the Federal level coaches and the entire team.

The PYS Board does not take rule changes like this lightly and this topic was discussed at length with the sole purpose of making sure we were doing what was most beneficial to our players and our program.  We have also developed a process and a committee to look at assessment scores and address possible exceptions to this rule, in very limited circumstances, to allow 3rd, 5th and 7th graders to play at the Federal level.  These exceptions COULD include, but are not limited to: 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders assessing in the top 5 of their respective age divisions and too few 4th, 6th, or 8th graders to complete a Federal level team.
