This is our second message of 2019. Our first message of 2019 was dated 1/9/2019. These
messages are meant to update and inform interested student-athletes and their parents for
both programs EHS Cougar Baseball (Spring H.S.) program and the Evergreen Cougar Baseball
Club (ECBC) program. The ECBC includes Club Team activity Summer, Fall and into Winter (early
Spring). Please make sure you have read previously posted to our website messages and that if
you are a student-athlete, that you have read the posted in the cages messages.
We had our annual interested parents meeting at EHS 1/15/2019. That meeting was open to all
interested parties. I would like to recap a few items that were discussed and that are worth
documenting so there is no confusion.
We encourage all interested EHS student-athletes to visit with members of the coaching staff or
Athletic Director (AD) so that all of your questions or concerns are addressed in a timely
- Winter and into early Spring workouts are all voluntary and open to all interested EHS
student-athletes. They are focused on strength/conditioning and skill development and
are organized and “controlled” to ensure a safe and productive environment.
- Spring 2019 EHS Baseball try-outs or player evaluations conform to CHSAA and JeffCo
School District rules and best practices. Try-outs are scheduled for 2/25 and 2/26.
Coach evaluators have made clear our evaluation metrics and includes evaluation tools
such as radar guns, digital stop watches, drills and exercises. At conclusion of the
evaluations, coaches will work as a group to objectively and fairly roster our Varsity (V)
and Junior Varsity (JV) Teams. Then scheduled practices continue followed by
scrimmages then games. Student-athletes that tried-out but who were not assigned to
the V or JV rosters will be “referred” to the Evergreen Cougar Baseball Club (ECBC)
“Club” team or L3 Team.
- The ECBC is not administered under the EHS Baseball program but under the umbrella of
the ECBC and their player evaluations will be held 3/1 and 3/2. At the aforementioned
annual meeting, it was discussed and “approved” by those in attendance (parents and
current Booster Club Board members) that the Club Team try-outs will be open to those
H.S. players “referred” and also “rising 9th graders.” Rising 9th graders were defined as JeffCo students currently in 8th grade and attending a feeder Middle School (Public, Private or Chartered) to include Home Schooled students. We did this last Spring (2018)
and will do this into Spring 2023 as a pilot.
- Spring Break 2019 like in previous years will include travel to AZ for practice and
scheduled games. The V and JV will play in the Greenway Festival games are 3/26
- Spring Break 2019 for the ECBC Club Team will coincide date/time wise with Spring Break
and will also include practice and games in AZ in a different setting/tournament. As of
right now, games are being scheduled in the Mesa area at the Red Mtn. Baseball
Complex. The Club Team will not ride in the chartered bus w
