WCE Teams Now Forming In Your Area!!!
Youth players from the ages of 3-years old to 18-years old who are looking for teams to join can register online or contact our office for more info at (281) 586-8402 or you can email us at wcehov@gmail.com  .   All programs for 14u and younger will be training and playing together for Spring, Summer and Fall Seasons.  All high school level teams shall train year round, but only play during the Summer and Fall seasons.  

Player recruiting for the youth teams are held annually each December with teams being put together for the full year.  Player's and parents need to understand that this is the only time that we guarantee players teams.  The only other time players are typically added is at the change of seasons, such as, in June and September.  However, roster spots may be limited to only existing teams with openings. 

Players wishing to join one of our programs are required to register and attend one of our scheduled open workouts held most Saturdays through the month of December.  Upon our staff's evaluation players are then be placed on a team's roster based on their playing experience, skillsets, level of commitment, and time availability.  

Our programs are designed for player development and are committed to the establishment of their mechanical foundation, improvement of the 5-tools required to succeed in this game at all levels, along with the teaching of young players about proper preparation for playing at the next level.  In our youth programs, we are focused on the mechanics and techniques that are the basic foundation of every successful professional, collegiate and/or high school player.     

WCE programs are currently found in 2 of the planned 4 regional areas of the Greater Houston area.  These are:  NW Houston and SE Houston (also known as Bay Area).  In 2018, we look to grow our programs for the age groups of 4u, 5u, 8u, 10u, 11u, 12u, 13u, & 14u in the NW Houston, where as we already have programs operational in SE Houston or Bay Area region.  And as interest continues to grow, we are looking to add even more teams and move into other areas of Houston.

All WCE program coaches are experienced in the grand game and expected to teach our 6 core values while teaching them the game.  Our coaching & instructional staff includes such former MLB veterans as: Chuck McElroy, Archie Corbin, Delwyn Young, and Robbie Weinhardt.  We also have many more former MiLB and Independent experience professionals and former collegiate standouts all working together to help provide your young player the advantage on the field.

Every program is designed with providing the best value and experience for each player no matter their skill level or how long they have been playing this game.  WCE also is focused on the academic aspect of your young players lives, and as such is partnering up with groups such as Rice University in promoting our standouts in areas such as community, education performance, and playing performance.       

Player's parents are asked to go to the registration form and submit your players information.  Once received, a coach or an instructor will reply to confirm dates & times for you to come out and meet the programs.

    The WCE and the Express House of Victory are now accepting registration for aspiring baseball or softball players to participate in an after school program. Classes are 1.5 hours to 2.0 hours from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm every Monday through Friday. Programs will be broken up into the Rookie (1st - 5th) and the Minors (6th - 8th). Rookies development is to be primarily focused on the buildings blocks essential to youth development and preparation for participating in sports activities, and general overall health. Minors development will be more focused on the buildings blocks essential to youth development and preparation for participating in sports activities, and general overall health. In both programs, the instructors/trainers will focus on warm-up/cool down, speed / agility / strength / conditioning, baseball & softball skills, and include nutrition training classes. Even though the program provides introduction to baseball & softball the training is useful as to positively impact most sports activities. The programs are offered in 1-day, 3-day and 5-day package options.

    HIGH SCHOOL WINTER / PRESEASON BOOT CAMP
    HIGH SCHOOL WINTER / PRESEASON BOOT CAMP
    With the high school season right around the corner, now is the time to build upon your off-season workouts and transition your training so that you reach peak performance to help ready you for your high school tryouts. All to often, we see baseball and softball players make excellent gains in their off-seasons, only to lose it all or break down during the season because of a poor transition into the preseason. These players start slow, have early season soreness, injuries, or just fails to make their high school squads altogether fail by not being ready. The problem is that most baseball and softball players train the same way regardless of the season, and when they realize they cannot do the same workout year-round, they get discouraged and stop strength and resistance training altogether. This is a huge mistake. If you don't take care of it, your body will break down (injuries, torn muscles, etc.). The off-season is when you focus on the qualities that make you a great athlete, including strength, power and speed. It ends about 6-8 weeks before the season starts, which is when the preseason begins. The goal of winter / preseason boot camp is to bridge the gap between weight room and on-field strength. The gains you made in the off-season will not enhance your performance unless you can get them to carry over to your sport. Participation in our 8-week boot camp will teach to maximize your transition from the off-season to preseason to in-season. The boot camp does this by: 1. Incorporating baseball-specific skill work, such as hitting, throwing, and fielding work. 2. Implementing odd object or imperfect training methods, such as nontraditional gym equipment like truck tires, sandbags, etc.. 3. Ramp-up explosion and speed intensity in a manner that increases jumping and sprinting type work to prepare players for going 100% with minimizing injuries. The boot camp will balance training to ensure the avoidance of over-training. A players body has a limited amount of energy, so we keep this to two or three times per week.

We will do this by reinforcing teamwork, promoting sportsmanship, encouraging positive leadership characteristics, and by showing trust in our youth as they strive to become positive community citizens.
 
Our Values:
  • Patience - Understand that good things take time, and that one must progress at the appropriate rate and not trying to get somewhere too soon.
  • Faith - Believe in your purpose, trust that you can succeed, and have peace of mind no matter the outcome.
  • Integrity - Ensure that purity of intentions of your decisions and commitments are without compromise.
  • Respect - It is important to at all-time respect the game, your opponents, your teammates, your coaches, and your parents, however, it is most important that you respect yourself.
  • Reliability - Reliability builds trust, which allows all members of the team to know the others will do their job, even during difficult times.
  • Accountability - The responsibility for ones actions as an individual or an organization.

Player Of The Month
Westchase will look to recognize our young ballplayers on and off the field, so on a monthly basis we will update this section with the coaches selection for player of the month.  
 
This award will give recognition based on 4 areas: 1) player's performance on or off the playing field, 2) the player's commitment to our core values, 3) the player's commitment to his community, and 4) the player's performance in the classroom. 
 
Westchase looks to promote the player's skills, his/her education, and his/her social skills.  These 3 facets will be what allows our players to grow up to be our future.
Community MVP
Westchase will use this area to promote and give recognition to our youth's contributions to their communities.
