Walk-in Registration will be held on Saturday, January 8th, 2022 from 10am to 1pm at the Woodridge Athletic Recreation Center (ARC).

Below you will find the rates for the WAA baseball program.  You must pay the total amount listed to enroll your child.  Our fundraising program includes raffle tickets that you will prepay for and receive when you register.  As your child sells the tickets, you keep the funds raised, thus significantly reducing the price of enrollment.

The league will provide each player with a jersey, pair of baseball socks and a baseball hat. Players are responsible for providing their own baseball pants, glove/mitt and batting helmet (NOCSAE Approved).  Please note that All Pinto Division Players (7/8 yrs. old) are required to use a helmet with protective mask/guard. 

Practices start in April, and games are played through June.  An average of 2 games and/or practices played per week on weeknights and Saturday's.  The day of the week that games and practices are played on weeknights will vary from week to week.  Weeknight games/practices generally start around 5:45pm and older divisions may play 8pm games as well.  Saturday game/practice times vary week to week, and generally are scheduled between 10am and 5pm (older divisions may start earlier and also participate in Saturday Night games).

While the majority of our players reside in Woodridge, we do accept players from surrounding communities.


More information about specific divisions is available here.  If you have any questions about our league, checkout the FAQ's Section of our website.

Woodridge Athletic Association (WAA) Baseball Covid Guidance - 2021

As a VOLUNTEER organization, we want to make sure every participant knows that our participation as members of the Board, as parents of players in this league, is completely voluntary. We also want to remind every parent and child that their participation is completely voluntary. At any time, if the safety of your child or your family is in question, we will place no pressure or judgment on you or your child choosing to not participate in anything that is not in line with what you believe to be safe.


That being said, the WAA is taking guidance from IDPH's Sport Safety Guidance and the Woodridge Park District. If your player has a COVID close contact please follow IDPH Quarantine Guidance.


- Teams are responsible for cleaning all trash from their dugout after each game.

- Teams should not enter the dugout until the other team completely exits.

- Teams are discouraged from handshakes/high fives (air high fives or hat tipping are recommended!)

- No chewing gum, spitting or sunflower seeds allowed in the dugout.

- Spacing of players in the dugout at 3 feet apart is encouraged. PPE (masks and gaiters) should be worn in the dugout when social distancing is not able to be achieved. Consider using the space immediately adjacent to the dugout behind the field fence for additional spacing. Coaches will NOT be responsible for a child’s behavior. Please instruct your child on social distancing protocols, sanitizing protocols and masking/PPE protocols prior to participation. If your child fails to maintain PPE and social distancing recommendations, we encourage you to instruct them on what you desire for the safety of your family. We do not want this burden placed on our VOLUNTEER coaches as they are trying to coach the players. 

- Bleachers adjacent to the fields we ask social distancing to be respected.

- Any individual who is running a temperature, sick, or not feeling well should not attend any games or practices. Fans, coaches, umpires and players included.


- Per the Woodridge Park District masks are not required when participating in the sport, while practicing or in games.

- Players are expected to wear masks in the dugout when 3 ft distance cannot be maintained.

- Any player who is running a temperature, sick, or not feeling well should not attend any games or practices.


- Only 3 coaches will be allowed in the dugout. Coaches will be allowed to stand outside the dugout during play to afford better opportunity for social distancing.

- Coaches expected to offer reinforcement to the league guidelines for social distancing and sanitary recommendations including PPE.

- Coaches, again, are volunteers in this organization. They are there to coach baseball and will not be tasked by the WAA to enforce the guidelines established for safe participation in sports, as outlined by the CDC and IDPH. We expect the coaches, as parents of children in this league, to do their best for their own children and yours to make this a safe environment to play baseball. The responsibility with respect to following current participation guidelines, however, falls upon the parents and the children participating in WAA. No one knows your child better than you do. We expect you as a parent to know whether your child will be able to successfully fulfill your family’s expected behavior on the field of play. If you feel your child will need extensive direction on these guidelines and/or will not be able to comply with what your family expects in this current situation, you should consider not allowing the child’s participation in WAA at this time.

- Any coach who is running a temperature, sick, or not feeling well should not attend any games or practices.


- Seating is permitted in the outfield and deep along the foul lines. Standing at appropriate social distance and the use of individual folding chairs is encouraged.

- We request locations around the dugout and behind home plate not be used by spectators.

- Fans are encouraged not to congregate in the areas behind home plate or around the dugouts before and after games.

- Fans are encouraged to respect social distancing guidelines at all times while on site and to consider wearing PPE, especially when social distancing cannot be maintained.

-Any individual who is running a temperature, sick, or not feeling well should not attend any games or practices.
