Washington Rush Baseball U8-U18 Tryouts 

 Washington Rush tryout info for the 2021 season. As the current summer season is still continuing and our current teams are still playing, we will be hosting tryouts in August in preparation for the 2021 season and teams. Given the Covid 19 Restrictions that apply to the Club's tryout process current Rush Baseball players will not tryout this year.  Currently rostered Rush players will receive invites to join a 2021 Rush team by email.

Coaches from each team and/or program directors will be in attendance for each hosted tryout to evaluate players and will be wearing masks. Our tryout setup will be scheduled thru an appointment only process for time slots to have small group work outs for approx 1 hour. There will be 2 separate groups of 5 players separated by a buffer zone rotated around the field to demonstrate baseball skills. Each group will also consists of similar aged players.  This time slot and allotted time will be strictly enforced to move one tryout time slot off the field on time, and to allow the next slot to come in.  Players ONLY will enter on the field from the 3B dugout entrance, and then exit thru the 1B dugout entrance.  Parents will need to check their player in, and make sure any and all paperwork is completed before the player starts the tryout.  All parents are required to practice social distancing if they plan to observe the tryout. Player check in will be on the outside of the 3B side of the field. 


All players will need to complete an ONLINE registration prior to tryout.  This registration will be available shortly and sent via email to all families who officially schedule an appointment for tryouts with Washington Rush.  This will need to be completed before a player is allowed to tryout.


Tryout Dates-

August 10th and 11th

August 17th and 18th

August 24th and 25th


All dates are at Archbishop Murphy HS.  Times are by appointment only.  No players will be accepted without an appointment.  If times and dates do not work for a player or family, then a virtual submission can be sent in for evaluation instead.




For extenuating circumstances, health concerns, or conflicts with in-person tryout- we encourage a virtual tryout submission to Washington Rush.  A virtual submission of baseball skills will be used for evaluation if submitted via a phone video or some other recording device that can be formatted and sent via email.  Email or phone message submission will be accepted upon communication this is how you wish to tryout for Washington Rush.  Please include in the virtual submission any and all baseball and athletic skills you wish to demonstrate for evaluation by Washington Rush coaches and/or program directors.  If additional info is needed upon receipt and processing of virtual submission, the player/family will be contacted for additional skills or info.


All tryout communication and questions can be directed to Jake Beattiger, who will be handling the tryout process for the 2021 Washington Rush season.  Please contact Jake Beattiger to schedule your tryout appointment and any other information regarding tryouts, as well as submission of virtual tryout videos/skills.


Any questions please feel free to respond by email if possible.  If a phone call is needed and voicemail reached, please leave a detailed message.
