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.

WHAT DO I NEED TO PLAY BASEBALL?

While baseball is not a "cheap" game to play, it is by no means the most expensive sport for children to participate in.

The basic requirements for participation are a BASEBALL GLOVE, BASEBALL CAP, GROIN PROTECTOR and some appropriate shoes (either BASEBALL CLEATS or MOULDED SOLE FOOTBALL BOOTS will suffice). 

In the younger age groups, baseball pants are supplied by the club on loan for the season, while they can also be purchased at a relatively low cost.

Playing shirts are supplied by the club up to Under16 age groups after paying a REFUNDABLE levy.

All necessary bats, helmets and catching equipment is supplied by the club, along with all of the required equipment for setting up the playing field, scoring, umpiring etc.

INSURANCE?

Part of a Players’ fee structure includes the Victorian Baseball Association annual registration and insurance fee which must be collected by summer league clubs and also covers players for the following winter league season. The fee must therefore be paid by Waverley Baseball Club players as part of the WBC registration fee.

The insurance cover provided via the VBA registration fees provides Lump benefits only for Personal Body loss / losses. It should be noted that: Waverley Baseball Club Inc. does not provide any insurance of any nature for members and/or players at any time. It is recommended that players and members establish their own insurance covers for personal accident, non-Medical, salary benefits and loss of earnings etc.
