Practices officially start the week of April 1st!

You can view a listing of your team's practice & game schedule here.

Please make sure that your player brings a water bottle or drink with them to practices.  Clothing attire for practice should be comfortable, dirt-friendly and seasonal as early April practices may be chilly!  Boys protective cup should be worn for all practices.  Team Hats (after they are passed out) can be worn for practices (save jerseys/pants for game day!).  Please make sure to label the cap with your players name, as they can easily get mixed up.

Bring your Completed Authorization for Medical Treatment Form to your First Practice.  You can download the form here.


This Season, the WAA will provide:

  • Team Baseball cap
  • Team Jersey
  • Pair of baseball socks
  • Use of Balls & Bats


You must provide:

  • Baseball glove (labeled with player's name)
  • Batting helmet (labeled with player's name)
  • Baseball pants
  • Protective cup for boys
  • Optional (not required):
    • Baseball shoes/cleats (metal spikes only allowed in Pony, Colt & Palomino Divisions)
    • Feel free to bring your own labeled bats to practices and games


Weather for Practices & Games
As you know the weather can be unpredictable and will vary throughout our season.  In the event that weather will not allow a game or practice, your manager will inform you as soon as possible... so insure that your manager has your correct contact information (you can view your contact information by logging in here).  Most times, these decisions cannot be made until the last minute, when one of the coaches actually gets to the field to see if it is playable or not.  Please make it a habit, to check our website before leaving, in the event of a last minute cancellation or field change.  A daily listing of the day's scheduled games/practices is located on the bottom of our home page.
