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.  Become a SPONSOR
