The 2015 13U Black team will participate in off-season training beginning in November. The team will participate in the Chicagoland Sunday Baseball League with regular season games being played on Sunday mornings from mid-April to the end of June throughout Chicagoland. The team will participate in 3-4 tournaments and ad-hoc games (May - July).
The tryout is closed to all except the players who are trying out for 13U Black. I have selected two independent (non WPPA affiliated) evaluators. These gentlemen bring a wealth of baseball experience and knowledge to this tryout so that the process will be spirited and structured.
Players - bring your glove, aluminum bat (no larger than 2 1/4") and batting helmet.
Parents - please have your player at Thillens by 8:45 to register and return at 11:00 to pick up.
I look forward to seeing the players this Sunday morning at Thillens Baseball Stadium (6404 North Kedzie just north of Devon)

WPPA's 10u travel program is for WPPA players who have achieved a certain skill level and would like to further their development through additional training and a schedule of 20-25 games against teams outside of WPPA.
Welles Park will field two 10u travel teams for the 2015 season:
10u Black will be coached by H Lichtenstein and Daryl Schumacher;
10u Red will be coached by Brian Nach and Rob Contreras.
The teams will host a joint tryout for the 2015 season on Saturday, September 20, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the Baseball Stadium at Devon and Kedzie (Thillens Stadium).
The tryout is open to any players eligible for 10u next spring. Players are eligible to play on a WPPA 10u team in 2015, if they turn 11 years old on or after May 1, 2015 and are registered and playing in the WPPA house league. Parents are asked to drop off their children at Thillens and return for pickup upon completion of the tryout. A tryout fee of $10/child will be due at time of drop off.
If your child is interested in participating in the tryout, please e-mail H and Brian and provide his/her name and birthdate. Also, please indicate which house team your child played on last season. Finally, if you have a preference for 10u Red or 10u Black, please indicate so. Note that indicating a preference for one team will not preclude a player from (or even hurt that player’s chances of) making the other team. Any player not making the team to which they indicated a preference will be considered for a spot on the other team.
Please e-mail either of the below coaches with any questions regarding the tryout or the 2015 10u program.
