2014 WAC Fall Ball
Please Contact Dave at 330-442-9937 (text is best) or firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot.
The 2014 WAC Fall Ball season is right around the corner. WAC Fall Ball is a great opportunity for players moving up a Division in 2015 to get a leg up for next year, and for players returning to the same division in 2015 to sharpen their skills. For all players, WAC Fall Ball is designed to allow our players to learn and grow in a more relaxed, instructional, and fun atmosphere. WAC Fall Ball is for Local Recreational League teams ONLY:
NO TRAVEL, SUNDAY SELECT, OR ALL STAR TEAMS PERMITTED!
DON'T TRY, WE WILL FIND OUT!
NO BIG Barrel Bats - only 2 1/4" Barrels
NO Composite barrel bats. 2 piece Composite handle with metal barrel bats are OK - see bat info below.
Our season will run from around 2nd week of August through early/mid October, depending on the number of teams in any given Division, number of games, and each teams availability. We do and will work around soocer, football, and other schedules to the best of our abilities. For the boys, we will have divisions for 6-7 yr old Coach Pitch and 8-9 yr old player pitch. If there is interest and enough teams, a 10-11 yr old boys division is possible. Player ages are determined by their age as of April 30 of this year. Our Coach Pitch Division is for players who will be returning to WAC 6-8 yr old Coach Pitch in 2015 and T-Ball players who will be moving up to WAC Coach Pitch in 2015. Our 8-9 yr old Player Pitch Division is for 8 yr olds moving up to WAC Minor League player pitch in 2015 and players who will be returning to WAC Minor League player pitch in 2015. This season's 8 yr olds are to play up in 8-9 yr old player pitch - they are not to stay down in Coach Pitch. All local regular season WAC Rules will apply. Games will be played on Wednesdays, Saturday afternoons, with possibly some Friday night games mixed in. Usually we play 10 -15 games, again depending on the number of teams in each Division.
Coaches/Community Rec Leagues are to assemble their own teams, their will be no individual player registrations. However, if your player is interested, contact someone on the WAC Board or leave your name and number at the Burbank Concession Stand and we will pass it on to our coaches. The team fee is $125 per team, and each team/Community is responsible for supplying their own uniforms and team equipment (catcher's gear, bats, batting helmets, heart guards, etc.) The WAC will supply game balls and field prep supplies. Formal team uniforms are not necessary - regular season pants, hats, & even jerseys are OK if you wish.
GIRLS SOFTBALL FALL BALL
If there is enough interest in any Girls Division, the WAC would be more than willing to have Girls Fall Ball. The same parameters as the boys would apply to any Girls Fall Ball, and it would run concurrently with Boys Fall Ball. Girls ages are determined by their age on Jan. 1, 2014. Contact Mark at 330-984-8849 if interested. We would need a minimum of 3-4 teams in any Division to accomplish this - so start networking amongst the other coaches in other communities and let us know!
