WBA Summer Leagues Details

Intro summer league - NEW FORMAT!
The 6-week Intro Summer League is to help rising Kindergarten & 1st grade players further develop baseball skills while also increasing their understanding of the rules of the game. To ensure all participants have a positive experience, IBA coaches run weekly one-hour skill clinics for each player as well as a game for players to showcase what they are learning.

IBA coaches are responsible for pitching and emphasizing a pace of play that is both brisk and engaging. Players gain experience at a variety of positions and learn how to anticipate and respond to  a range of baseball situations.

New for this year, each team must have a parent volunteer coach at each session. Parents can commit to the full season or can sign up for just one session! Buddy & team requests are welcome and we will do their best to accommodate.

Pinto summer league - NEW FORMAT!
The objective of the Pinto Summer House League is to help rising 2nd & 3rd graders further develop their baseball skills while at the same time increasing their understanding of the rules of the game.

In response to parent feedback, we are including skills clinics in the summer program. Clinics will be led by professional IBA coaches and will focus on developing fundamental skills with the goal of giving young players confidence to enjoy playing baseball.

In addition to the skills clinics, there will be a weekly game. Games will be umpired by IBA coaches who will use this opportunity to coach baseball IQ. Having the coaches involved in the games will allow them to work with the players on situations, teaching the fielders to reach quickly to determine where they need to be, in the context of a real game. It also provides an opportunity for the coaches to see which skills need added focus and guides them in the planning of subsequent clinics.
