OPAA provides recreation, select and travel baseball programs.
The Fall season offers a competitive recreation program. Everyone from the seasoned veteran to the absolute beginner fits in the fall program. During fall, an emphasis is placed on player development. Scores and standings are kept but equal playing time, building confidence and learning the game are the fundamental elements of the program.
The Spring season offers a competitive recreation program as well as a Select program in certain age groups. The recreation program is competitive but offers a place for all players to compete.
The select program is aimed at the more experienced player who wants traditional competition, advanced development and aspires to reach higher levels of game play. 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. The summer select teams are chosen based on coach evaluations and play during the spring season.
The travel program is aimed at players who desire the highest level of competition. Try-outs for the travel teams are held in late summer and these teams play together year round. Check out our travel programs on the team sites on the left side of the home page.
