KWBA Coaches' Creed



The KWBA Coaches' Creed was developed to detail the philosophy with which we ask all of our volunteers to adopt while working with our kids.

President's Welcome Message

To all Parents, Players and Coaches:


Welcome to your home for community baseball! If you live in the Village of Northfield, Kenilworth or Winnetka and have a child in 1st grade through high school then we offer a relevant community baseball program for you to consider.

Our volunteers in partnership with our park districts work year round to offer house leagues and an integrated travel baseball program. Our continuous focus is on great baseball experiences and player skills development at all levels.

If your family has participated in our programs, “Thank You” for your support! To all others we invite you to register for an upcoming league, grab your glove and join us on the field.

Go Bulldogs!

Brian Caponi

President, KWBA

About KWBA

The KWBA (Kenilworth-Winnetka Baseball Association) was founded in 1971. KWBA is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization that creates a fun, safe, community environment for boys and girls to play baseball, build character, learn sportsmanship, develop skills and make friends.    

In 2016 nearly 700 area children participated on either a spring, summer, fall and/or travel league team. We serve children primarily from Kenilworth, Winnetka and Northfield.  

The KWBA sponsors several leagues, including Spring house leagues for grades 1 through 8, a summer Travel program (ages 9 through 12), a Summer house league (grades 3 through 8) and a Fall league (grades 3 thru 9). The leagues are organized by grade and include Pinto (1st grade), Stallion (2nd grade), Mustang (grades 3 & 4), Bronco (5th & 6th grade), and Pony (grades 7 & 8). We've also taken leadership in organizing summer Colt & Palomino teams for ages 15 through 21.  


Some general rules about league participation. All area children are eligible to join and play in the KWBA. However, we strongly discourage participating in multiple baseball leagues, primarily from a safety concern for the child, and fairness (due to potential attendance conflicts) to other team members. In addition, a child must play on a KWBA house league team to be eligible to play in the Bulldog Travel program.   

The umpires for the KWBA house leagues are community students (7th grade through high school). For many their first job is a KWBA umpire. We ask all parents to support these young adults and remember they are not professionals.
