Baseball WA and the Tee-Ball Association of Western Australia (TBAWA) are pleased to announce the signing of a revised MOU outlining an increased partnership for future grassroots development.
As part of the MOU, Baseball WA will deliver participation and recruitment tee-ball programs at the entry level into diamond sports, while TBAWA will promote machine pitch as the preferred transition program from tee-ball to baseball. Together this will enhance the player development pathway to accommodate tee-ball and baseball participants.
Both Baseball WA and TBAWA agree this is a significant step forward in boosting participation numbers and ensuring clubs can integrate tee-ball, machine pitch, and baseball activities to attract and retain more players.
"Baseball WA and TBAWA have worked well together over many years and to solidify the relationship with a development agreement is fantastic,” Baseball WA Participation Program Manager David Hayes said. “To work directly on programs designed to grow grass roots tee-ball and keep them in the game all the way through until they become Little Leaguers is an exciting challenge and should prove fruitful for both baseball and tee-ball clubs alike.”
"The Tee-Ball Association is pleased to sign the new MOU with BWA. It will further enhance the relationship and pathway between tee-ball and baseball in Western Australia." said Di Mount-Bryson, President of Tee-Ball Association of WA.
“TBAWA and its clubs have achieved the highest numbers of tee-ball participants in Australia thanks to the great leadership of Di Mount-Bryson and her team over the years,” Baseball WA CEO Lachlan Dale said. “Collaborating on grassroots programs will further consolidate the pathway of our sports and promote tee-ball and baseball as fantastic sporting opportunities, giving young players room to learn, grow, and thrive.”
