What is STEP? Read all about it here...
by Master Admin posted 02/05/2019


Spring Training Evaluation Program (STEP) is coming up....

Spring Training Evaluation Program (STEP)

Players registered for AAA, Majors, and 50/70 must attend STEP where League Official and Coaches’ recommendations are used to place players at the appropriate level. These evaluation sessions are kept fun, friendly, and informal.  (Returning 50/70 players do not attend STEP.)

Arlington Little League makes a concerted effort to place players in time slots with friends and former teammates so they will be more relaxed in the STEP environment.  This does not mean they will be drafted to play together.  Our goal is to make the day more enjoyable for your children.

Sign up for your child's STEP timeslot

Dates & Times -

  • Sunday, February 17 -  50/70 & Majors - will be held at Barcroft 6

  • Sunday, February 24 - Majors - will be held at Long Bridge Park, Field #1

  • Sunday, March 3 - AAA - will be held at Williamsburg  MS Gym

    Confirm the appointment that you will receive via email.

    Bring your glove. A batting helmet and bat are recommended but can be provided by the league.

    Dress the same as you would for an indoor baseball practice: sneakers (NO cleats!), hat, tee shirt or sweatshirt, and shorts, baseball pants, or sweatpants. 

    Purpose – STEP is to allow the league and the coaches to rate players in order to form balanced, competitive teams. Every player will get placed on a team. 

    We know that many kids have not played since last season. We also understand that a player’s ability to hit the ball or throw a strike on so few repetitions is not necessarily indicative of their skill level. Please trust us to evaluate form and mechanics as much as, if not more than, results. 

    PLAYER EVALUATIONS WILL NOT BE SHARED WITH PARENTS. This policy is non-negotiable. The information gathered in STEP is only for use by the league officials and coaches involved in the drafts for the purpose of assisting ALL in forming balanced, competitive teams. It is not designed to provide specific feedback on individual players. All coaches have been instructed not to provide STEP information to parents, so please do not ask them for it.

    League officials provide coaches with their baseline ratings. Coaches use this, as well as their own information, to draft players. While coaches at 50/70 and Majors do consider friend and coach requests, those are not the most important factors when drafting players. Instead, Arlington Little League focuses on balanced competition. Coaches fill their teams to the limit of 12 players. Any players who are not selected in the 50/70 draft are placed in the Majors draft.

by posted 02/04/2019


A pair of local DC Girls Baseball players have been selected to participate in Major League Baseball’s inaugural High School Girls Baseball Invitational, a four-day camp that will host 64 amateur players from across the country. They were selected from over 180 applicants. Paloma Benach, 15, a freshman at Woodrow Wilson High School (Washington DC), and Joanie O’Connell,15, a freshman at St. Stephens and St. Agnes School (Alexandria, Va.), will travel to Arlington, Texas, from March 7-10 for training, games and individualized instruction from former MLB players and current and former USA Baseball Women’s National Team players. The camp and games will take place at the Texas Rangers’ Youth Academy and Globe Life Park, the Rangers’ home stadium. Benach and O’Connell were members of the DC Girls Baseball squad that in August claimed the 14-and-under championship at Baseball For All nationals, the premier youth girls baseball tournament in the country. Benach was also a member of DCGB’s 13U 2017 nationals-winning team. Benach is an alum of Capital City Little League and trains locally with the Moose Baseball. O’Connell is a product of Arlington Little League.
