2017 Pre-Season Info

Welcome to the 2017 VASD Wildcat Baseball Season. Here are a few important dates and details to keep in mind the next few months.

Open gyms: The main high school gym is reserved every Saturday from 7–8 am for any prospective baseball players from January 21 through March 18 (except February 11). Take advantage of these opportunities to refresh your skills before tryouts.


Player meeting: Monday, March 13, in room D137 after school.


Parent meeting: Wednesday, March 15, 6:00 pm in the K-Wing commons.


Tryouts/First practices: Week of March 20, times TBA; usually in main high school gym. Teams determined typically near end of the week.


First games:
Varsity & JV: Friday, March 31, away @ Milton
Freshman: Tuesday, April 4, home vs. Janesville Parker

Note that the second week of the season (March 27) is VAHS spring break, which includes the first Varsity and JV games. Since this overlap is often a feature of our season, our program developed the following statement:

The Verona Baseball Program has a great deal of respect for quality family time, including family vacations.  Per Verona Area School District policy there cannot be restrictions placed on players choosing to go on vacation with their own families during Spring Break.  However, in order for us to be successful we need all members of our teams present during practices and games and this includes Spring Break.  The practices and games during this week are crucial to a successful season, and the time lost during this week cannot be made up.  It is possible that players attending practices and games during Spring Break will be moved up the depth chart with their performances and bypass those that are not in attendance.  The Verona Baseball Program will be as successful as the dedication, commitment, and effort of its members.

Team schedules are available here under each team’s menu and on the Big 8 Conference site (select a baseball team in the “View Schedule” sidebar).
