Blue Wave 13U is for 7th graders and is coached by Aron Garcia, one of Orange County’s top youth coaches and present assistant baseball coach at Northwood High School for nearly 20 years. Garcia knows what it takes to develop players and how to get them to the next level in their game to make their high school teams and beyond as hundreds of his players have gone on to top college programs as well as the pros over the years.

Each team plays local scrimmage games and tournaments and will play eight games or more per month on a consistent basis.
