2018 Lincoln Sox Tryouts

Welcome to the 2018 Lincoln Sox Tryouts!

  • The Lincoln Sox are sponsoring baseball teams ages 8-14 for the 2018 season.
  • USSSA, the sanctioning body with which the Lincoln Sox select baseball teams are associated, establishes the age classifications for the league. The cutoff date is May 1st. This means that the age your child is on April 30th, 2018 is the youngest age your child can play.
  • PLAYER FEES:  All age groups - $700 for automatic/electronic payment, $750 for manual payment (check or cash).  The difference in cost is to cover the additional accounting labor and cost, as well as the organization's time involved with tracking manual payments.  Automatic/electronic payments can be set up when you accept a roster spot on the team via www.lincolnsoxbaseball.com.  You can use a credit card, or a debit card used as a credit card.  You cannot set up automatic payments as a direct debit from your checking account.

One-time full payment ($700):  

A single transaction for the entire $700 annual player fee will occur immediately.

Automatic payment schedule ($700):

  1. $100 non-refundable commitment fee due immediately upon acceptance of a roster spot.
  2. $100 per month for 6 months starting from the date of the commitment fee.

Manual payment schedule ($750):

  1. $250 non-refundable commitment fee due immediately upon acceptance of a roster spot.
  2. $250 due by the uniform try-on date, typically in late October.
  3. Remaining balance ($250) due December 10.
  • The funds generated via player fees go toward uniforms, tournament fees, umpires, sanction fees, team insurance, and various organizational operating expenses. Your individual team may need to do some additional fundraising activities and obtain sponsorships to support the number of games and tournaments your team chooses to schedule.
  • If you have any questions regarding costs or expected support of your son's team, please feel free to ask any of our coaches or contact the Lincoln Sox at lincolnsox@gmail.com

Tryout Information:

  • The players age on April 30th is the age of the team they are eligible for.  For example, if they turn 9 on April 30th or earlier, they must play at the 9's level or higher, but if they turn 9 on May 1st or after, they are still eligible to play 8's this year.
  • There is no fee for tryout.
  • A private tryout may be requested if you cannot make the public tryout by contacting the coach directly.
  • Player may bring their own equipment.
  • Registration will be open 30 minutes prior to start of tryouts.  Please arrive early to turn in your paperwork and allow your player to get properly warmed up.
