What days will my child practice?

Managers are volunteer and therefore all practices scheduled are based on their availability. There is no predetermination for this until teams are drafted and managers notify players the last week of January. Depending on the age division, teams will typically practice 2-3 times per week until games begin in March. Teams will have field practices and may also have batting practices.

Where are practices located?

Regular season games begin after the WBA Opening Day on the first Saturday of March. Most teams will have 2 games per week (1 weekday, 1 Saturday). There can be exceptions to this in which rain cancellations/rescheduling, a bye week, or playoffs alters the schedule resulting in a Sunday game or 1-3 games per week.

Where are games located?
