Coaches hired by Estacada High School
Congratulations to Andrew Higgins and Bruce Barry, who will be running the high school program at Estacada starting this fall! Andrew and Bruce have coached for Wilson JBO the past two springs and the previous fall.
2014 Fall Ball
We are fielding at least one fall ball team for returning and incoming Wilson JBO players. Games will be on Sundays in September and October, with some optional practices during the week.
Fall ball is especially valuable for players who have just finished little league and have not yet played on a larger diamond. Wilson JBO works with Wilson HS to find high school coaches who can begin teaching young players the skills necessary to continue playing baseball throughout middle school and high school. Phil Johnson, who has managed Wilson HS JV-1 and JV-2 teams in the past few years, will be coaching our teams. Phil also coaches the Wilson HS D-2 summer teams. He guided this year's team to a 4th place finish at state (winning the sportsmanship award), and won the state tournament last summer.
Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to register, or for more information about our fall, offseason, or spring programs.
