News & Notes

AB Coaches for the 2020/2021 Season

The Villages Baseball Association is seeking coaches interested in being the Head Coach of each of our Advanced Baseball Bomber teams. We are seeking a head coach in each of the following divisions; 6U, 8UA, 8UB, 9U, 10U, 11U and 12U. Interested coaches should expect to coach the 2020 Fall AB season and the 2021 Spring AB Season and 2021 All-Star tournaments. Interested coaches should email AB Director, Andy Stevenson at andygator3@yahoo.com by June 30, 2020. Ultimately, the board of directors will select the head coach at the July VBA Board Meeting. 

The purpose of the AB program is to provide "advanced" instruction to players that have a passion for the game of baseball for an opportunity to learn and compete at a higher level. It is a competitive program and each player is required to try out in order to participate. This program also requires a higher level of commitment from the players and their parents.
