All WCBA files
2013 - Constitution and Bylaws

 

The WCBA Executive gave their approval at last night's meeting for the WC Wolverines Major Bantam team to operate as a WCBA team for the 2015 season.   
 

TRYOUTS

 

Open tryouts will occur to invite any Bantam player from any Western Counties' centre to tryout for this team.  Several non-parents will assist with the team tryouts to ensure the top players are selected.  NO CHARGE for Tryouts !  

We apologize in advance for the early times, but the days are getting shorter.....

 
There was a water break along the 1st baseline today @ Rotary park (repairs are underway) so we must move our 1st tryout to Vandamme Park in Port Lambton.
9AM-11:15AM.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
 
*** Players are also asked to wear proper baseball attire as they may be some sliding drills involved during the tryouts.
 
REVISED DATES :
 
Saturday, Sept. 20th      9:00AM - 11:15AM  Vandamme Park (Pt. Lambton) 
Monday, Sept. 22nd       6:00PM - 8:00PM  Rotary Park (Chatham)
Wednesday, Sept. 24th  6:00PM - 8:00PM   Rotary Park (Chatham)
Monday, Sept. 29th       5:30PM - 7:30PM   Vandamme Park (Pt. Lambton)

 

 
 
 

During the season the team will use various diamonds throughout Kent and Lambton Counties (Chatham, Pt. Lambton, Courtright, and Sarnia) for weekly games and practices.  This will decrease the distance any one player will have to travel to participate on the aforementioned team.  It is a team goal to have equal diamond time split between Kent and Lambton Counties.  

 

Where will this team play?

 

Our plan is to participate in the Sun Parlour League (against Minor Midget and Major Bantam teams), exhibition games vs. nearby AAA teams (London, Waterloo, WOBA, Guelph, Hamilton, etc.), possible exhibition games vs. Michigan U15 teams, as well as to enter 2-3 AAA tournaments,  the Bantam Eliminations and the OBA-AAA tournament.  

This team will also utilize the indoor facility in Chatham during the off-season for approximately 20 workout sessions.

 

What are the Goals of a Western Counties Wolverines team?

 

One goal of this team is to provide an opportunity for players from the Western Counties Association to play at the highest level of AAA baseball for the 2015 season.  The top players in WCBA will be able to play with and against the best baseball players in the province at an affordable price.    (tentative budget is attached)
