About Pond

Our Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers who serve on various committees to organize our baseball, softball, and training leagues. You can recognize them at the ball park by the red or white Pond Board of Directors shirt they wear. Don't hesitate to stop them and say "hi"!

The Pond Athletic Association holds monthly meetings, open to all interested parties. Meetings are held at 7:00pm on the third Wednesday of each month at various locations.  Due to scheduling issues, the date and location may vary.  Families with children registered at Pond are members of our association and are entitled to attend these monthly meetings and it is recommended that you contact a board member or email to verify location and date.

With the input and help of our members, we can make the Pond Athletic Association an even better community resource for our families and our children. We encourage anyone interested to join the Board and help make the Pond Athletic Association a place you are proud to have your children play.

About Us

The Pond Athletic Association, a non-profit organization, was incorporated on May 21st 1963 for the purpose of promoting and furthering the athletic welfare of the area youth by stimulating their participation in any and all athletic activities.

The first PAA Board of Directors and founders of the association were Curtis Glore, Jr., Fred Waterhouse III, W.C. Bockstiegel, Earl Bartman, Wm. E. Steinbruesck, and Allen B. Hughes. The association has continued to grow with West County for over five decades thanks to the sacrifices and generosity of generations of area residents. Today the association boasts over 900 member families and serves approximately 2000 area youth each year.

We are always looking for new volunteers to help keep this great association viable and to help us plan the future of the park. Together we can ensure that PAA is able to continue its mission of serving the youth of West County. Whether you are interested in becoming a member of the Board of Directors or perhaps just helping with a committee, PAA encourages you to contact us and get involved. Your participation will make a difference!

Pond Athletic Association is located in Wildwood, Missouri off of Pond road just north of Highway 100. The park boasts seven well maintained diamonds, a concession stand, asphalt parking, and an abundance of shade trees, not found at any other County Athletic Association Park.

The Pond Athletic Association offers training, baseball, softball, concurrent, and fall programs for youth ages 4 through 18.
