Ocee Park Athletic Association (OPAA) sponsors youth T-Ball and Baseball programs for boys and girls ages 4 to 18 years old. Since our founding in 1993, OPAA has enjoyed many years of recreational and competitive baseball. We offer multiple levels of play in many age groups and welcome all into our program. OPAA leagues play and practice at Ocee Park (a City of Johns Creek park) located on Buice Road in Johns Creek, GA. OPAA's Board of Directors, managers, coaches and many others are volunteers who are dedicated to OPAA's vision and mission.

Which baseball program is best for you (Fall Developmental or Spring Competitive)?

Fall season is considered instructional in addition to recreational. Everyone from the seasoned veteran to the absolute beginner fits in the fall program. During fall, an emphasis is placed on instruction and player development. Scores are not kept as competition is valued less than development. Equal playing time, building confidence and learning the game are the fundamental elements of the fall program. 

Spring competitive season is structured toward the experienced player who wants traditional competition, advanced development and aspires to reach higher levels of game play. As most players in spring have several seasons of experience, the beginning player may struggle in the older age groups. Safety is also a concern in spring as the skills of many players is high enough to generate unsafe situations for the beginner.
Please contact us to find out which program is right for your child and make sure you offer your beginner supplemental training if you place them in the spring competitive league (ask us how by contacting an OPAA board member today).

Select programs are available for qualifying individuals in the summer and spring seasons. Spring select teams are chosen via objective 3rd party assessors (without input from the OPAA or other interested parties). Assessments are open to everyone, though only a small percentage are selected to play at this level. Ocee Park also offers a travel baseball program for those who desire the highest level of competition.
