Storm Baseball - A Winning Tradition!

The Highland Village Area Baseball Softball Association is well known in the area for having competitive select baseball teams who play hard and do so with integrity for the game.  We focus on developing young men and women into leaders of character who believe in sportsmanship and putting the needs of a team before their own.

We field Storm teams in AA, AAA, and Major classifications and compete locally in the Texas Elite Baseball Association (TEBA) for league play each spring and fall season. Our teams also play in several local tournaments as well as some tournaments out of state including sponsoring one 12U team each spring to play in a tournament at Cooperstown Dreams Park near the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

All of our coaches are selected after an application process, interviews with league staff, and successful completion of a background check. Our coaches lead by example, show respect for the game, and are entrusted to provide a competitive learning experience for our players and their families.

We generally hold tryouts in July and November of each year for all of our teams. If you're interested in learning more about the Storm program, please contact Will Barresi, HVABSA's VP of Select Baseball at wbarresi@verizon.net or any of our coaches.

10U Storm Schultz Gets the Call to MAJORS!


Way to go make us proud Storm!

We at HVA are so pleased to announce that our 10U Storm - Schultz team got the call to Majors at the beginning of this fall season! This team has continually been the class of their age division since their team started with their 8U season. They have kept their team together with 8 of the boys playing together since the HVA Rangers in our Recreational program.  They do that by having great coaches and players who value ideals such as team, commitment, sacrifice, humility, fundamentals, faith, and fun all above winning. But boy do they win having gone 28-11-5 this last season, taking home hardware several times. 

They volunteer together as team doing things such as Feed the Hunger where they help prepare 25,000 meals for folks in need. They have also been the Texas Rangers Youth Team of the month. Earlier this season they were presented their Storm Majors rings - rings given to all of our teams who reach the highest level of Youth Select Baseball. 

So again, congratulations to the coaching staff led by Dustin Schultz and all of the players and families. You make Storm Nation proud!
