Tryout information

The Tomball Kings welcome new student-athletes to all of our baseball programs. Our next open tryouts are for these rosters:

  • Spring 2025 rosters for high school and high school prep league (junior high).
  • Fall 2024 rosters for 12U, 10U, and 8U. We have not yet announced tryout dates for Spring 2025 rosters for 12U, 10U, and 8U.

Please understand that while many of our programs and classes are open to all student-athletes, eligibility for play on a Tomball Kings baseball roster is limited to homeschooled student-athletes. Please contact us if you have eligibility questions or need to schedule an individual tryout outside of our regular tryout schedule.

Prospective participants may wish to read our guide “How to make the most of your baseball tryout” as well as our physical fitness standards.

Tryouts are free of charge.

Tryout format

At each tryout we separate participants by age division, but we use an evaluation and grading system that is uniform across all ages, to help us track player development over time. We evaluate punctuality, baseball appearance and demeanor, focus and energy, general athleticism, throwing ability, infield and outfield defensive skills, and hitting. We reserve time toward the end of each tryout for separate evaluations of prospective pitchers and catchers. We grade each activity using a five-point scale and make qualitative notes, as well. Though player evaluations are the primary function of our tryouts, we will take time to share teaching points whenever possible.

Tryout results

Typically within 72 hours of a tryout’s conclusion, we will share our evaluations with each participant. We do not share actual, numeric grades from the player evaluations, but do provide a qualitative assessment along with one of two, definitive, tryout results. These results will be either (a) a qualified invitation to participate as a player in one of our age divisions or (b) our regrets that we are unable to extend an invitation at that particular moment in time.

The term “qualified invitation” means an invitation to join a Kings program that is predicated on certain terms, conditions, and understandings. These include player availability for team events as scheduled, timely payment of required fees, and compliance with program rules.
