Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Nov. 19th, 2020. Though it was a bit unconventional this year being online, it was another great discussion with ideas that will definitely to help this association try to amend our programs around our current situation with Covid-19.
Once again we were almost able to fill every single position on the committee, compared to a handful of people who have been running the association for the past few years. We would like to announce that we have a new president this year, Chris Simpson, who has been handling our houseleague duties as convenor for the past few years, amongst many other duties along with coaching a Rep team the past couple of seasons. Congratulations, Chris!
Though we weren't able to offer a full program as in years past, we still would like to send a thank you once again to all the parents and players for your support over the past season. A special thank you to the committee members that worked to help run what little baseball we had amongst the restrictions.

Waterdown Minor Baseball Association
Upcoming WMBA Rep/Select Tryouts
Update: the form is now available for applying for next year's U11 Select team. Please see details below.
The baseball season is slowly coming to a close, and we are ramping up for tryouts for next year's Waterdown Wolves Rep & Select baseball program. Rep teams are formed with tryout sessions for eligible players rostered with teams playing under the auspices of the Central Ontario Baseball Association (COBA). Play involves games with teams from the surrounding area & tournaments throughout the spring/summer of the upcoming season. For more information about the Rep and Select programs, please see our information listed under Rep & Select in our Youth Programs section on the WMBA website.
Although we are still making last minute tweaks, the following early tryout schedule has been announced and we will be releasing times and places for other tryouts in the next little while for teams in divisions that will be fielded. Please check the WMBA website regularly for any sessions that are added or any changes that may be made to the schedule. For those interested in applying to tryout, please fill out the application form for the respective tryout on our Forms page (click here to be redirected to that page). Note that applications are not yet available for teams without an initial tryout schedule; once the initial schedule is confirmed, the form will be made available. We are making it mandatory to apply online before you attend your first tryout. Age qualifications are for end of year 2024 (i.e. 10U indicates 10 or under by Dec. 31, 2024). Note that we are still also have decisions to make on fielding Select teams but will post more information pertaining to those teams once a firm decision has been made.
