Program Information

Baseball for Kids - Leagues, Camps, Clinics and Travel

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

High School Infield Skills Camp

2020-2021 High School Infield Skills Camp

Description: This session is designed for infielders, at all four positions, and covers mechanics for fielding ground balls and throwing to bases. Our coaching staff believes that this review is vitally important to get each player reset on his basic mechanics. As players progress to higher levels in baseball, the speed of play quickens dramatically and even tiny flaws in fielding and throwing mechanics can be the difference between a safe and an out call.
