WHY PLAY AT WAVERLEY?
With our superior playing facilities and our long tradition of coaching excellence, the Waverley Baseball Club is the best place for interested parents to send their children to learn about and participate in playing the game of baseball.
Baseball is a clean, healthy and challenging sport that can be enjoyed at any level of skill. It is a game that provides continuous participation and activity for players without much risk of physical injury. All games at Waverley are professionally managed, coached and supervised to ensure the protection of young players and the enjoyment of everybody who comes to play at Waverley Baseball Club.
Players DO NOT have to be from the “Waverley area” or from the City of Monash only as we welcome any potential players from nearby and surrounding suburbs.
The Waverley Baseball Club provides opportunities for players to learn about and to enjoy the magnificent game of baseball at two levels:
- All of our players must compete in our unique “Intra-club” Domestic League where the participation and enjoyment of players of various skill levels is far more important than the “winning and losing”. It provides a healthy degree of competition but we do not allow this emphasis to override the enjoyment of inexperienced players.
- For elite players who earn selection in our representative teams, we provide the opportunity for them to compete at the highest levels (State League) with a tradition of coaching excellence that has produced innumerable quality baseballers who have progressed to National and International levels in the sport.
