Developing Youth. Growing Baseball – Our Two Fold Function
The growth of baseball is a key focus at the Academy. Through our school programme we have partnered with BAWP (The Baseball Association of the Western Province) to create school leagues.Our aim is to serve as a filter system to various clubs in the suburbs or areas in which we serve.Through our various campaigns we will develop the sport in communities and schools and increase the awareness of Baseball in South Africa.
With only a few weeks away from the WBCQ we want to wish all our SA guys the best of luck for the qualifier!! Make us proud!
Welcome to the brand new Brett Willemburg Baseball Academy Webpage!
We are so excited about our growth and development over the last 10 months and we’re even more excited about the growth and development of our YOUTH and of baseball in South Africa. You will notice our new logo and emblem which is represented by the Eagle.
According to the House of Names;
The eagle was a symbol born by men of action, occupied with high and weighty affairs. It was given to those of lofty spirit, ingenuity, speed in comprehension, and discrimination in matters of ambiguity. The wings signify protection, and the gripping talons symbolize ruin to evildoers. The eagle is held to represent a noble nature from its strength and aristocratic appearance.
Native Americans saw the Eagle as a symbol for great strength, leadership and vision. As if to seemingly mirror this, the eagle has been used as a ‘banner’ by many of the great empires throughout history, from Babylon to Egypt, through to Rome and even the United States. In early Christianity the eagle was seen as a symbol of hope and strength, representing salvation. The eagle appears twice in the book of Revelation; both times in a context that suggests it is on the side of God.
The symbolism and history behind the Eagle was so inspiring to us and we are proud to have it represent what we stand for as an Academy.
