Fall Rec Registration

The Team Store Merch



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).

FALL 2024 recreational baseball registration

Keep in mind that certain division might hit maximum capacity (coaching / field space) before registration closes.  Please register early to avoid a late fee and to guarantee a spot on a roster.

Our registration for the Fall 2024 Recreational Baseball Season is now open.  Please consider registering early, 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.   

Challenge Program

  • The Challenge Program offers a higher level of competition, while still being part of the Rec Program (you must be registered to play Rec in order to play on a Challenge team in the Spring)
  • Challenge teams typically practice 2x per week (1x on tournament weeks)
  • Tournaments are held on Sundays only, and would target 4-5 tournaments, with typically 2 games per tournament
  • Tournaments are typically held locally in the Charlotte area
  • The season would begin in February and would target completion in mid/late April, at which point Waxhaw would begin to form our All Star teams in order to prepare them for the State tournaments 

Travel Program

  • The Travel Program offers the highest level of competition, and is separate from our Rec Program (you cannot play Rec and Travel for Waxhaw in the same season)
  • The team typically practices 3x per week (2x on a tournament week)
  • Expect 4-5 tournaments that are held on Saturday/Sundays, typically 2 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday, sometimes stretching to 3 games in a day
  • Tournament locations can vary, and can be up to several hours away depending on what tournaments are targeted by each team
  • The season would begin in February and stretch into late May, potentially early June

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 April 30th 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!

All coaches will be required to complete the WAA Coach and Volunteer Application 

Do you have interest in Coaching Waxhaw Baseball? Our Baseball Coach Registration is no longer part of the player registration. WAA instituted a single COACH & VOLUNTEER APPLICATION that will serve as the only registration for coaches with WAA moving forward.

The all new WAA Coach and Volunteer Application incorporates your application to be a coach within Waxhaw Athletic Association for ALL Sports, but also allows you to complete your mandatory yearly Background Check and SafeSport Abuse Training (or refresher course).

ALL persons who plan to be coaches, managers or volunteers with access to players must complete the application, background check and training.

These must be completed before assignment to a team. Follow the link above to begin. Once you've completed the initial Background Check form, you will be sent an email to begin your SafeSport Training. You can also find any needed training at which will have updates as to what you may need to complete. 


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.
