Coached by former Mater Dei high school standout player Coach Carlos Cornejo, Blue Wave 12U practices twice weekly at the OC Great Park and plays local tournaments twice each month and local scrimmage games.
Cornejo played four years on scholarship at Curry College in Boston and served for several years as assistant varsity coach at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. Assistant Coach Joe Carrig also played at Mater Dei and four years collegiate baseball at Curry College.
PROCESS & COMMITMENT
Blue Wave is a full-time “Club Team,” not a casual rec team. Our goal is to prepare our players and teams to play at the high school level and beyond.
Blue Wave wants players that are committed to “the process” by attending all practices and games if possible.
Blue Wave players also work on their fundamentals, conditioning and hitting in their spare time as much as possible when not practicing with us. We expect Blue Wave players should be able to catch a ball, throw the ball correctly, and hit the ball.
Blue Wave looks for “team players” and “baseball families” as well. We strive to make each player better from one season to the other and improve our “team game” from one season to the other as well.
With that in mind, players are expected to play the “entire season” if they accept a position on any Blue Wave team. And, a 30 days advance notice is required when a player leaves the team.
The Blue Wave “Spring Season” runs January through May (5 months), tryouts typically in December.
“Summer Season” is three months, June through August, with players moving up in age division for the “Fall Season” that runs from September through December (4 months).
- Cost is $225 per month training fee for practice sessions.
- New players pay a one-time “New Player Registration” of $279 that includes player Game Jersey, Game Cap, Practice Shirt, Cage Shorts, and administrative set up.
- Players pay Tournament Fees or Game Fees as posted on the team page. The cost of the Tournament or Game costs and payment deadlines are also posted on the team page.
