WAA & TRIA

WAA Travel Baseball would like to thank TRIA for its support in providing concussion baseline training and arm care assessments for our players to kick off our baseball season.  We look forward to having TRIA Certified Trainers staffing our tournaments this year. 

Whether you are a WAA family or not please feel free to swing by the TRIA tent to ask questions during our tournaments.  Anyone in the player’s family or even a fan of the player (Home or Away doesn’t matter) is encouraged to stop by the TRIA tent to ask questions or have someone take a look at something that is bothering them.  Why not?  TRIA is there, available and best of all its free!

We're Looking for Great Coaches for 2020

For WAA Baseball to be successful, a key component to that success starts with our coaches. We are seeking coaches with the following attributes:

  • Have the ability to teach, explain and demonstrate all skills related to the game.
  • Establish clear-cut goals for each player, and for the team as a whole; and be able to incorporate individual goals into a team concept.
  • Have good communication skills with the player and the parents.
  • Be approachable both on and off the field.
  • Have organizational skills for practice and game plans.
  • Set the pace for the team with knowledge, demeanor, intensity and intellect.
  • Be able to handle issues professionally, swiftly and calmly, to obtain the best results. 

If you are interested in coaching, fill out the application below.  Applicants will be scheduled for an interview.
