Quickball is a fun and innovative way for kids to learn the fundamentals of baseball and softball. Quickball teaches all diamond skills in a more active, engaging way than T-Ball. Quickball will be for children ages 4-6 years.
This season we will also have a league for 13-15 year old baseball. This league will compete in the ITL league and it will require light travel.
Come join us for a fun-filled year of
HVAA Baseball, Softball and Quickball!
Check HVAA.net for league information and policies!

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that alters the way the brain normally functions. It is caused by a bump or blow to the head that forces the brain inside the skull to move back and forth. Appropriate rest from activities and schoolwork is necessary to ensure that the brain heals properly.
