EVALUATIONS/TEAM FAQs

Does WBA have Evaluations?

Yes!  Evaluations are MANDATORY for all divisions and all players (age 5 and older) must attend in order to assess skill level to form balanced teams and determine which division - National or American - is best suited for their ability.

A player will NOT be drafted to an American team if they do not attend evaluations.


When and where are evaluations?

Evaluations for the upcoming Spring season are held in mid January. Refer to WBA's website for specific information. WBA will send out information about specific ages, times, and locations at a later date.


What is Spring Training?

All Foal 4U and Shetland 6U enrollments are eligible to participate in the Spring Training Program for players. This program will introduce the younger player to the game of baseball before the actual season practices begin for this age division.  

If you are interested in having your child attend Spring Training your enrollment fee covers the cost of the Spring Training Program, there is NO additional fee. Spring Training is typically held in mid February. Specific details will be announced in early January and field times and locations provided to you as soon as they become available. 


When do I find out what team my child is on?

Teams are drafted after evaluations are completed in late January. Expect to be notified the last week in January.


Are managers and coaches paid or volunteer?

WBA is a recreational league. Managers and Coaches are volunteers.  


What is the difference between National and American Divisions?

Each division/age group is divided into an American League and National League. The National League is developmental which stresses player improvement and the building of fundamental skills.  The American League is more competitive, has more competitive rules, and may engage in inter-league play with other area PONY league teams. Evaluation results determine the appropriate placement for each player.
