Westonka Youth Baseball League - Travel Teams (ages 10 - 15)
Westonka Youth Baseball League - Travel Teamsages 10U - 15UThe Westonka Youth Baseball League (WYBL) runs in partnership with Westonka Community Education & Services to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to play competitive baseball. Our focus is on providing an environment where players can develop baseball skills and techniques, as well as team skills, and sportsmanship. For those younger athletes that are just beginning, the WYBL offers interleague play to focus on instruction and developmental play. All teams work on learning the game, how to be a good teammate and improving individual and team fundamentals. Traveling teams require greater commitment and play at a higher level of competition. WYBL is excited to provide several open gym opportunities for you and your son to work on and hone their baseball skills. These opportunities are not clinics, they are an opportunity for you get into the gym, play catch, take some ground balls, fly balls and get into the cage. Only players who have registered are eligible to participate in these free open gym opportunities. Here are some expectations as you consider attending. Please don't just drop off your son, come in and play catch and work with them or, make sure another adult is working with them. 1. Check in with the Site Supervisor (they will be located outside the gym) 2. The North Gym is for hitting only (the curtain will be dropped to split the gyms) 3. All youth players must wear a batting helmet when inside the cage. Those who are throwing BP (batting practice) should stay behind the protective screen for safety. 4. The Center Gym is for ground ball and fly ball work only, do not throw East and West in the Center Gym, we want to avoid damage to the video boards. 5. The South gym is for throwing progression and pitching. Equipment that will be provided includes......
