General Baseball Information

Eligibility:  Children who live within the Woolridge Elementary School attendance boundary or eligible free agents (no athletic association for baseball established within your elementary school zone) may play for the WAA.  Boys and girls that are at least 4 years old and no older than 18 years old on August 31st of the current year.

Team Selection/Assessments:  Skill assessments will be held on or after the first Saturday in March to determine the player’s appropriate level of competition.  If three or more teams are to be formed within an age group, then there will be a draft conducted by the Baseball Administrator.  Assessments may not be held for age groups with only enough players to form one team.   CBC requires its members to field the highest level of competition within each age group, unless an exception is received from the Commissioner.  For example, if the WAA only receives 12 registrations from 9 & 10 year olds, then the WAA will field a Mustang team and skill assessments will not be required.

Coaches:  Head coaches are selected from a pool of volunteers by the Baseball Administrator. Assistant coaches are selected by the head coaches.  All coaches must complete a volunteer background check and display their co-sponsor coach’s card from Chesterfield County during league games.  Coaches are also required to complete concussion training provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Heads Up Concussion initiative to support compliance with WAA Concussion Return to Play Policy

Season:  The length varies by league.  Pre-season practice begins following assessments.  The regular season runs mid-April through mid-June for Pee Wee through Pony leagues.  Colt plays from late June through early August due to high schools’ varsity schedules. 

Practice:  Practice times vary based on field availability and coaches’ personal schedules.  There will be at least two practices per week during the preseason.  Practices are typically 1 hour and 30 minutes in length and start between 5:00 pm and 6:30 pm on weekdays.  CBC assigns practice times and fields to WAA.  A majority of practices are held at Woolridge Elementary School, which has a batting cage and fields designed for Pee Wee through Bronco.  Rockwood Park is typically the second practice location.  Practices are typically limited to one per week after the season begins.  

Games:  Pee Wee through Pinto will play most of their games on Saturdays.  Pinto through Colt will have games during the week.  Bronco and Pony will play a majority of their their games on weeknights with start times between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm.  A majority of games will be played at Rockwood Park, but Bronco and above may play games at Ironbridge Park.  Sundays are typically reserved for makeup games.  Game schedules are typically distributed by CBC the week prior to the first game.  Please note: the Woolridge Athletic Association does not set the game schedules.

Playing Time:  WAA coaches will abide by player participation rules set by CBC.  Pee Wee through Pony have offensive and defensive participation requirements.

Post Season Play:  Pinto League and above have postseason tournaments.  Participation and seeding is dependent on team record.  Not all teams will make the end of season tournament.

All-Stars:  There are various all-star opportunities following post season play.  CBC will form all-star teams to participate in Pony Baseball’s international tournaments to crown 9U through 18U World Series Champions.  CBC will also form all-star teams to participate in local tournaments and tournaments specifically for coach pitch teams or non-travel baseball players.

Free Agent Policy:  Children who live outside of Woolridge Elementary School attendance boundary and do not have CBC member association within their elementary school boundary are considered to be open players and may consider registration with WAA.  Children who live within the Woolridge Elementary School attendance boundary will only be released to play for another association if we are unable to place them on a team.  Players who request to play for another association will be released according to the request date and the merits of the individual case.

Insurance:  Supplemental insurance is provided through CBC and is funded by the player’s registration fee.   This insurance covers injuries sustained during a league game or authorized practice.   Primary coverage provided by the player must be utilized first before the supplemental plan becomes effective.  The CBC insurance plan has a $25 deductible and will pay any claims over and above primary coverage up to a maximum of $10,000 for medical claims and $500 for dental claims.
