Baseball WA and Tee-Ball Association of WA are excited to announce the fourth annual Tee-Ball Super Challenge set for November and December 2022.
The Tee-Ball Super Challenge is an elimination-format tournament for all tee-ball clubs. New this year is an Under 9 division in addition to the Under 11 division, with games moving from midweek to Sundays to allow each team to play 3-4 games before December’s grand final.
“Over the past few years, the Tee-Ball Super Challenge has given young athletes a chance to play against teams from other clubs. It’s been an exciting and memorable experience for entry-level tee-ballers and it’s wonderful to see their energy and enthusiasm out at the ballpark,” BWA Participation Manager David Hayes said. “We can’t wait for another awesome Tee-Ball Super Challenge and look forward to receiving team nominations.”
Tee-ball clubs can nominate their teams HERE.
Baseball WA and Tee-Ball Association of WA are pleased to introduce the new Pony Girls Tee-Ball program, designed to increase participation and expand the player development pathway by providing female athletes with their own competition at the tee-ball level.

“We are excited to launch Pony Girls Tee-Ball in partnership with TBAWA and look forward to an awesome summer on the field,” BWA Participation Manager David Hayes said. “We hope to encourage female athletes to continue playing diamond sports by linking the tee-ball program with the Pony Girls Futures and League programs.”

Congratulations to our U16 State Team on a great week of baseball and an awesome rally late in the game to bring home bronze at the 2022 Australian Youth Championship.
The bronze medal game saw WA and South Australia lock horns with the SA team jumping to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning. Both teams scored single runs in the third inning before WA tied it in the fifth and took the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth with six runs. Korbyn Wilson claimed the win with 3 innings of scoreless work.
Interested umpires are encouraged to sign up for an upcoming Community Umpiring Accreditation Workshop in Rockingham, Morley, or Subiaco.
This workshop will introduce umpires to the responsibilities, skills and rules of baseball umpiring. Instruction will be by accredited WABUA Instructors to the standards required by Baseball Australia.
The one-day workshop will include practical instruction during which participants will be introduced to umpiring techniques. Participants will be then invited to then complete an online assessment before attaining Community Umpiring Accreditation.
This accreditation is the minimum level of training umpires must have to officiate at all junior games. Upon completion of the course, participants will be registered with BWA as having attained the Community Umpiring Accreditation and awarded a “Green Shirt” package.
Each one-day workshop will commence at 9am and conclude by 1pm:
