How much will these opportunities cost the parents?
BWAA funds the tournament entry fees and uniform costs for all opportunities but does require that parents participate in fundraising events such as selling extra raffle tickets, going to Night at the Races event, etc. during the season.
How are the players selected for these teams?
These teams are selected based on player performance and are evaluated by the head and assistant coaches for their respective age division.
Will there be different uniforms from what is worn for the in-house league?
Yes, the travel and tournament teams will have a second set of uniforms in addition to their in-house shirts.
Will there be extra practices if my child is selected on these teams?
Yes. Since these teams will be more competitive than the regular in-house league, these teams will also have separate practices in addition to their in-house team practices. In order for BWAA to be successful in these different opportunities, we do ask for committed and dedicated players and families.
Can my child play on these teams in addition to an outside travel (AAU type) league?
Yes, BWAA encourages athlete development and recognizes that some families may choose to have their child play in an outside league as well as with BWAA. This will not prevent your child from being selected for a travel or tournament team.
