Juniors

Westgarth Baseball Club has a solid junior program and actively supports the development of junior baseball in our region, DV or Diamond Valley Junior Baseball Association.

This year we have baseballers playing at the U13, U15 and U17 levels, as well as a burgeoning Tee Ball program. Baseball is a team sport and winter baseball is played in good spirit with the aim of the baseballer having fun while developing their skills.

At each level, Winter State Championships are available for the Junior baseballer. These tournament occur once a year and are the best fun.
