LWAA Recreational Baseball Redesign
The Baseball program at Lake Wylie Athletic Association (LWAA) has become widely recognized as one of the best and most complete all-around programs in the Lake Wylie area.
The LWAA Recreational (Rec) Baseball Program is designed to attract as many players in the community, who have a sincere interest in the game, as possible. In our younger leagues we attempt to include every single player who registers to play. Our goal is to give the youngest players in our program an opportunity to gain a fondness for and an interest in the game. We also strive to give them every chance to learn the basic skills the game requires.
As our recreational players advance in age, we still provide an "all inclusive" approach to participation. The privilege of increased participation is earned through attainment of performance levels by conscientious attendance at games and practice sessions, as well as general conduct and development on the playing field.
The LWAA Baseball program has been built upon the following guiding principles:
To guide and assist our participants to gain the necessary skills, confidence, and discipline to become positive, healthy citizens and role models of the future.
LWAA Baseball offers multiple programs and levels of play including Recreational, Challenge as well as Elite travel. LWAA Baseball has successfully been able to maintain a positive balance within our programs.
Our LWAA Baseball Structure
Rec Baseball – This division is meant for all players of any level, who just want to have some fun. Baseball is a great team sport, and we offer anyone the chance to play in our Rec division. No tryouts are necessary.
Challenge Baseball – This division is dedicated to developing players in a more competitive setting than the Recreational league. These teams are often All-Star players from the Rec division who are ready to take that next step. These teams participate in local Charlotte area Sunday tournaments. Players must try out for placement on these teams and participate on a Rec team.
Elite Travel Baseball – This is our most advanced and competitive division. If your child has excelled at baseball and is showing a serious commitment and interest, we encourage you to tryout. Players must try out for placement on these teams.
