  • Mission Statement

    Our mission is to organize and develop highly competitive Junior Crusaders youth baseball teams comprised of players from the Waukesha area and its surrounding communities. We expect to provide our players with dedicated knowledgeable coaching that will not only teach the physical aspects of baseball, but also a deeper understanding of how to play the game while maintaining high standards of excellence promoting good sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for the individual. We will instill the integrity of the game of baseball into each player while helping them understand the greatness of the game. To allow each player to learn life lessons associated with the game of baseball. To guide and enhance the development needed to advance to the high school or college level. To provide the best learning environment, the best competition, and the most fun the game of baseball has to offer its participants.
