To provide opportunities for children living within the Cedarburg Wisconsin school district or attending Cedarburg Schools (public or private) to compete at the highest levels in youth baseball while using the game of baseball as a teaching tool to instill proper instruction, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity. Mercs' players are taught to respect the game and their teammates and are instilled with the virtues of working hard and playing hard to establish a set of values that will guide them into adulthood.
For the 2023 season, teams U11 and below are preferred to be age based (age as of May 1st). Players however can tryout with their class if they prefer to stick with their grade but they will fall under “play up” rules during the selection process. Play up rules state the participant must score in the top 5 or coach selection.
Cedarburg Mercs will utilize a 3rd party group to evaluate players during the tryout process. This policy is in place to provide accurate, consistent, and unbiased results. The $25 tryout fee directly offsets the cost of the professional evaluators.
