If a tryout is rained out, check the web site or call the Serra Hotline for more information, (408)345-9800. Another session will likely be held the following weekend time and date TBD, weather permitting.

Pre Tryout Warmups:
The pre tryout warmup for minors/majors will be held at Cupertino Middle School. It is not mandatory, just a chance for players to get out before the following week's official tryout days.

Tryout Details:
All players who are 10, 11 or 12 years old (Little League age) must attend tryouts to be eligible to play in the Majors or Minors Division. Players Little League age 9 and under are not eligible for Majors.

If your child is 9 years old (Little League age) and wants to play in the farm division, he/she should not attend tryouts. If your child wants to play in Minors or is undecided, then he/she should attend tryouts.

Tryouts will start on time and your child needs to be available the entire time period (approximately 3 to 4 hours). It is to your child's advantage to try out with the right age group. However, 9's and 10's who cannot make the morning session can still try out at the afternoon session and vice versa.

Each player will be required to demonstrate playing ability in the following areas: Catching, throwing, fielding, hitting and base running. Be sure that your child is dressed appropriately and has a baseball glove and cleats. Bats and balls will be provided.

For safety purposes, all male participants should wear a cup for protection.

Information About Age Groups

8 and 9 year olds (league age):
In accordance with Serra rules, all 11 and 12 year olds, must be placed in the Minors or Majors Divisions (unless a parent requests a lower division). This mean’s 8’s, 9’s and 10's will only be placed in Minors, regardless of ability, if space allows.

10 year olds (league age):
By Serra rule, 10 year olds are eligible to be drafted to Majors. Majors is the first level where Managers are not required to give equal playing time to all and often the 10 year olds are affected. Parents of 10’s who wish to have their child removed from consideration for Majors should indicate that at the tryout check in by writing “minors only” when they sign in.

11 year olds (league age):
11 year olds are expected to be drafted to the Majors Division. If you would like to request a waiver for your child, please contact the Serra Minors/Majors Player Agent at mmplayeragent@serralittleleague.com.

12 year olds (league age):
In accordance with Little League rules, all 12 year olds will be placed in the Majors Division unless there is a special waiver. If you have questions or would like to get a waiver, please contact the Serra Minors/Majors Player Agent at mmplayeragent@serralittleleague.com
