Coach Jack Harney

Our 13U and 14U teams are part of Blue Wave’s High School Development Program for advanced 7th & 8th graders that want to prepare for high school baseball and beyond.

Blue Wave 13U & 14U teams are based at the Orange County Great Park, Irvine, CA, and practice twice-weekly (Mondays & Thursdays) on some of the best fields and open-air batting cages in Southern California.

Both teams practice on a 60×90 field, 14U teams play 60×90 games and 13U will play 54×80 tournaments and games as well as occasional 60×90 games as they “grow into the game.” And, the sooner a player adapts to the full field size, the better they will be getting ready for high school ball.

Besides twice weekly practice sessions, both teams generally play tournaments twice a month as well as scrimmage games on our home field.

Blue Wave 14 is coached by Jack Harney, a high school baseball coach at Beckman High School, where he coaches the freshmen team. Coach Harney is a proven winner and a top players and catcher at Beckman in his high school years. He ideally suited to prepare players to make their freshmen team.

Chris Reiland will coach 13U and is also a current high school coach with Aliso Niguel High School and has coached youth baseball for the past 10 years. Besides working with incoming 7th graders, Reiland coaches incoming high school freshmen and sophomore players as well.
