It is the current policy of Windsor Baseball League to make every effort to place a player in a level so as to provide the best environment for success.
Teams will start from scratch every season. This means that teams start with all new players; no tenure or returning players. This policy is used to ensure team parity.
Method: Players will be assigned to teams within each level by a committee made up of the President, and/or Vice-President, Director of Player Development, Player Agent and the Player Reps. The Committee will use a combination of sources: previous season Coach evaluations, assessment ratings, personal knowledge, to form the most equitable teams possible with every effort made to place those players rated above average players on each team.
Once teams have been formed, equitable trades may be allowed and authorized by the Player Rep, or if needed, by the Committee.
Lower levels: The League will consider a Parent/Guardian's request to place their child on a specific team, with a coach or a friend only in Rookie, Minor A and AA; however, there are no guarantees. Requests should be made at time of registration,
Upper levels: The League will not consider requests to place a child with a particular "Manager", "Coach" or "Friend" in Minor AAA or Majors.
**A player will be assigned to a team if parent/guardian is a Coach/Manager. Siblings will be placed together unless otherwise requested.
It is the policy of WBL that siblings, eligible for the same age/division, should end up on the same team unless the parent or guardian has previously made it clear that they have no preference to keep siblings together. Without prior notice, siblings will be placed on same team.
