The Redmond Mustang baseball program fields a Varsity, JV, and C-team and has a total of 40 to 50 players each year. Baseball is a cut sport, meaning that not everyone makes a team, so here are some tips to help you be ready for tryouts and the start of the upcoming season.
If you’re new to RHS baseball or an incoming Freshman, introduce yourself to the coaches or send us an email. We need to know how to reach you with details about winter workouts, registration information, tryout schedules, and other off-season baseball activities.
Registration for Spring sports opens in mid-January each year and continues through the Friday before tryouts begin, usually during the last week of February. The RHS Athletics Office is your best source of information about sports registration, including how to navigate the confusing and not-very-intuitive online registration process in Parent Access.
Registering is probably not something you can do the night before the deadline. In addition to submitting information online, you will need to download and complete two medical forms:
The medical history is required once a year; physicals expire every two years and must be current through the last possible day of the high school baseball season (Memorial Day weekend).
LWSD charges a participation fee to play high school sports ($200 in 2019). Fees are collected on a per-sport basis and cover some of the expenses necessary to field a team. Because baseball is a cut sport, this fee is not due until the player makes a roster. Contact the RHS Athletics Office if you have questions about fees; caps for families and multi-sport athletes; or waiver requests.
You’ll also need to pay any outstanding school fines on your account before you can be cleared for tryouts.
How do you know if you’re cleared to try out? The names of eligible students are posted in the window across from the bookkeeper’s office at the school. When in doubt, check the list.
Tryouts span three days during the last week of February and take place at the RHS baseball field and Hartman Park. Varsity, JV, and C-team rosters are posted on this site once tryouts conclude.
These tips will help you nail down the logistics and other details so you can focus on baseball once tryouts start:
