Good afternoon wolves and welcome to the 2023 10U team!
I am coach Bob Hildebrand and could not be more excited to start another season with WAA and all of you. There will be a TON of information coming, but for right now I wanted to focus on introduction, schedule availability for fall, and to just say welcome.
A little bit about your coaching staff. This is my 2nd year coaching wolves, and my 6th year coaching with WAA baseball. I also coached in WAA softball with two of my older children. The 10U b assistant coaching staff is currently made up of coach Todd Masucci and Chris Traub. The three of us were together on coach Quatro's 10U team last year and are all focused on player development, respect for the game and haivng a ton of fun along the way. Travel baseball is a great way to play the game we all love, and seeing the boys grow throughout the year both as players and humans is what keeps us all coming back!
I think its important, right out of the gate, to also comment on the purpose of our b team. Yes, we want to win, and we will play to win. More importantly, this team will give our boys the touches, frequency, consistency and repetition they need to not only advance, but to create a new normal in their ability. I say this especially for those of you that may be new to travel ball. We will practice and play A LOT! As such, open and frequent communication on availability, conflicts, etc will be key all along the way.
With that in mind, we'd like to start scheduling fall practices. If each of you could reply with any availability conflicts for Sep / Oct I would greatly appreciate it.
Much more to come, but again, welcome! and of course GO WOLVES!!
