Wairarapa Spitfires Baseball Club was established in 2016 and continues to grow in both player numbers and in development opportunities for our local youth. We invite you to join our fun, supportive club that is committed to developing baseball skills for local girls and boys. Hand/eye co-ordination, fitness and sportsmanship are the cornerstone of our programme and above all the kids have loads of fun! We encourage family involvement and provide training and support for parents interested in learning about coaching, umpiring and scoring. The Wairarapa Spitfires Baseball Club is excited to offer the following grades for the 2021/22 season
