8U 2010 Travel

Waldwick 8U Travel Baseball - This past summer the 8U Travel Baseball team represented Waldwick in the North East Bergen All Stars league. For most of the kids, this was their first exposure to a Travel sport atmosphere. Travelling and playing in other towns and competing against other 8 year old boys that they didn't know was a big adjustment. We ran into our challenges throughout the season but overall I think it was a positive experience for their 1st time playing in travel baseball where the competition is much higher.

Every player on our team had that one special moment in a game whether it was their first hit, a nice catch, sliding into home to score, pitching a good inning. And you can see from the smiles on their faces when they came back to the bench that they knew us coaches were proud of them. From the leagues standings, even though we had a record of 5-7, we did take 6th place overall out of 15 teams. We lost 5 games to the top 5 teams in our league who were 11-1 and 10-2. I am proud of the way our players represented Waldwick this year.

I hope that our coaching staff helped your child develop the skills necessary to be successful at this level and to prepare your child for next season. Also I hope they learned about the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. Given positive reinforcement based on effort rather than results can go a long way in there development and attitudes in all sports.
