Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Oct 22, 2019. It was another great discussion with ideas that will definitely help this association grow and improve over the next few years.
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 are always on the search for more volunteers for the upcoming season though, so feel free to get in touch if you want to contribute!
Thank you once again to all the parents and players for your support and enthusiasm over the past season. A special thank you to the committee members that worked to help run the association while wearing many hats.

Upcoming Rep Tryouts (Update 2)
Update 2: For everyone trying out for a WMBA team, you will be required to fill out the waivers accessed through the On-Deck app or web application to be able to attend tryouts. This is needed to sign the waivers due to the current Covid-19 situation and you will need to fill out the atendance tracker before each and every tryout you attend. Please go to the below link and either download the app or access the online version in the link provided on the Baseball Ontario website.
If you have issues with the app or the online version, please email your respective coach holding the tryout. Please try to arrive at your tryout as early as possible to avoid delays to the check-in process as this is essential before you step on the diamond.
Update: We have an updated schedule for the teams that were missing coaches and tryout times, so please see below for any updates. Our tryout sessions begin on the 16th, so if you have yet to register, please do so before the first tryout for that team. More sessions may be needed or changed due circumstances such as inclement weather, and those changes will be reflected on our website, so please check back occasionally. As of this time, our 8U coach has yet to be determined, but we are holding an initial tryout session, so please see the updated session date below. If anyone feels they would like to help out this team in a coaching capacity, please get in touch with the contacts on the 8U application form.
The modified baseball season is slowly coming to a close and, though we really don't know at this point what the season ahead will look like, now is normally the time for tryouts for next year's Waterdown Wolves Rep baseball program. On that note, we are going ahead with tryouts as close to normal as possible in hopes for a season as best we can imagine. 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 program, please see our information listed under Rep & Select in our Youth Programs section on the WMBA website.
Although not everything is in place yet, 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 assigned coach; once that coach is assigned 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 2021 (i.e. 10U indicates 10 or under by Dec. 31, 2021). Note that we have yet to make any decisions on fielding Select teams but will post more information pertaining to those teams once a firm decision has been made.
