Program Information

Baseball for Kids - Receational and Leagues

It is the philosophy of Wheatland Athletic Association to progressively develop children’s skills by offering programs for various age levels. As they develop, the children are taught the value of good sportsmanship and teamwork. Our intent is for children to have FUN and to enjoy the sport they play while learning the character building lessons that come from participating in team sports. WAA emphasizes the fundamentals of baseball as players are taught the basics of hitting, throwing, catching and base-running within a framework of teamwork and sportsmanship.

2018 Summer HIT CLUB

The best hitters in baseball have powerful swings.  You can have the best eye in the game but if you can't drive the ball out of the infield, you will quickly fall behind your competition.  The HIT Club is a NEW hitting circuit created to develop all of the muscles needed to have a powerful swing.  Through hitting and exercise stations, each player will work on essential muscles to develop a more powerful swing.   For competitive and travel caliber baseball/softball players for ages 8u to 12u (Grade 2 through 5)
