Upcoming Events

Fall 2019 WLSA will be launching a new addition to our fall ball and spring programs. We now welcome 10U,12U, 14U and 16U Tournament only teams. This is for players looking for the highest level of competetive play who wish to practice on the weeknights, and participate on the weekends. Those interested will be evaluated, and up to 12 top players in each age group will be selected.

Remaining players will be placed on fall ball teams, with the same schedule listed below, and will also stay on the same rosters through the spring season.

WLSA Fall Tournament Team Outline

Mission of WLSA Tournament teams: To develop West Linn players into future high school athletes.

Top athletes who attend player evaluations will be chosen from each age group to represent the Tournament Team(s) at the age levels of 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U. Number of teams at each age level will depend on number of players who show interest, as well as the number of coaches who show interest.
