Melrose Little League Assessments
The Melrose Little League will schedule and coordinate multiple sessions for assessing the upcoming Spring Season players. These sessions are ususally performed in October. The fall assessments will be held at both at Conant Park and Monk Park and are run spanning two weekends on consecutive Saturdays and Sundays.
Once the dates are established for these events then these dates will be reflected on the MLL calendar and communicated to the previous season's team parents via email.
The assessments are for any player that is will be playing in the Federal League, Minor League or will be moving up to the Major League.
