Waxhaw Baseball Families, Important Updates for Fall Registration:
1. Registration for T-Ball, Rookies, Minors & Majors is CLOSED.
2. All Coaches - Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches - need to register on the system and if they haven't done the background check in the last 2 years and/or the Abuse Training (only need to do this one time and you're covered permanently), they need to do so. Link to Register is the same registration form, select Register as a Coach: https://www.wxwathletics.org/baseballregistration
3. Evals Saturday 8/13 - All players new to the league and those moving up a division should attend. A coach from each team should attend (Coaches and assistants will be announced early this week), as the draft will be immediately after the evals.
5U & 6U T-Ball & Babe Ruth DO NOT have evaluations.
Waxhaw Baseball is a proud member of Waxhaw Athletic Association and is one of the fastest growing athletic associations in Union County. Our focus is on teaching kids the great game of baseball and maintaining a focus on each individuals development in the process.
As WAA experiences continual growth, the commissioners, coaches, and families constantly strive to maintain an athletic organization based on fair and fun competition for our children. Waxhaw Baseball participates with Cal Ripken Baseball and offers programs for players from the age of 4 to 12 and as part of Union County Babe Ruth, offers Babe Ruth baseball for players 13 - 15 (Age 18 in Spring). A description of each division can be found under the Baseball tab. Each program layers in components of our National Pastime, beginning with basic baseball (T-Ball) up to Majors at the Cal Ripken level (50' mound / 70' bases) and finally Babe Ruth (90' bases).
We are excited to announce that Waxhaw Athletics will be adding a 16U Travel Baseball team as an option this fall!
WXW would like to invite players that are interested in an affordable competitive baseball option right here in Waxhaw. Our goal for this fall season is to create a competitive group of kids that will have the opportunity to showcase their skills in 8 or so tournaments across the Carolinas this fall. A tentative schedule starting September 10th – the first weekend of December.
If your child is interested in trying out for the team, tryouts will be held August 10th & 11th, and a possible 3rd day on the 12th. Starting at 6pm to 8:30pm at Nesbit Park, Field 1. (2 ½ hour tryout time frame and 3rd day will be determined on the amount of interest)
We are looking to fill 11 to 12 spots so please have your player ready to show up and show out! We are very excited to get started and the opportunity to see how our players blossom over this fall season. Baseball is meant to be fun, and we all know sometimes can be a little over whelming. So please know that although travel baseball is labeled as competitive play, we are not looking to take the fun out of the game. It is important for players at this age to still have fun and play competitively. Some fun during a game sometimes brings out the best in a player and their team. This process is meant to build players up and create a level of love for this game that maybe they never knew they had, not creating a since of dread because someone thought taking the fun out of it would equate to wins.
To register your player, please email Coach Sigmon at Lee@towncapital.com . He can also be reached at (229) 379-6455 with any questions you have. Thank you in advance for your interest in playing 16U Travel Baseball with WXW and we look forward to seeing you all there.
Please have your player wear shorts and a baseball jersey of some kind. (Baseball Pants not required) If your player is planning to try out as a Pitcher, please make sure they bring turf shoes, tennis shoes, or have rubber cleats as our mound is turf. If your player is trying out as a Catcher, please have them bring all gear necessary for this passion. Also bring lots of water to stay hydrated.
Our registration for the Spring Rec Season is currently underway. Please consider registering early (Links on this page), as we expect a record number of players for the upcoming season and could potentially limit registrations in certain divisions.
We'd also like to take the chance to inform you about the options for a higher level of competition through Waxhaw Baseball.
What is laid out above is how our teams are typically run. However, each team is run independently and could target different tournaments, etc. Both Challenge and Travel programs are by invitation only, offered after an open try out. Depending on the interest level, we may offer both options at each age division, either, or none at all if there is not enough interest. The age divisions are based on your player's age as of 4/30 of this year.
If you are interested in either program for your player, please be on the lookout for tryout dates for your specific age group.
Thank you, and we look forward to see you out on the ballfields soon!
