Headlines & News

 

The WAA is 100% committed to having a Spring/Summer Baseball Season in 2021.


We would like to start the baseball season in April as we normally do, but we realize we may need to be flexible on start dates depending on the pandemic. 

In the past we have held in-person registrations in January, but because of the recent spikes in COVID cases, we needed a different approach. We have added an online registration feature that is now open.  Our new online registration system is simple to use, but if you have any issues or questions please feel free to contact us.  If you prefer, you can mail-in your registration, by downloading our mail-in registration form.

Included in the baseball registration fee is our Raffle Ticket Fundraiser.  You can sell the raffle tickets and recoup $100 of your registration cost.  Raffle tickets will be handed out to team managers this year to distribute to players in April. We are planning for the Raffle drawing to occur at our June board meeting.

We will be looking for Managers and Coaches at all levels so please volunteer if you are able to.

We are looking forward to the start of the 2021 Baseball Season!
