The Web site for the 12U AAA Tidewater Sharks AAU/USSSA Travel Baseball Organization. Over the last 3 years [9U, 10U, and 11U] the Sharks record is 122-46-4 and the team has won or made it into the finals in more than a dozen tournaments. We are all very proud of what they have accomplished!

What is Sharks Baseball? The Tidewater Sharks Baseball Organization was formed to provide talented and enthusiastic youth baseball players in South Hampton Roads, VA with the skills they will need to play AAU/USSSA baseball on a state-wide and national level. Our guys practice hard, play hard and love the game.

We believe in providing them with the best possible training. The head coach, Don Lam has coached for 10 years and all the assistant coaches are well versed in the game of baseball. In addition, we have several professional coaches working with the team including our hitting instructor, Henri Cuddyer. He has coached at the AAU level for 22 years and his son Mike Cuddyer plays professionally for the MN Twins.

We want the kids to get the best possible early training in a positive environment. All the coaches are experienced at teaching the game and have a lot of patience with the kids. We understand that yelling at a kid for missing a ground ball is counterproductive. Instead, we believe that pointing out why he missed the ball and what he needs to do to succeed the next time is more productive and will help maintain his love for the game.

For More information about the team or team try-outs contact Coach Don Lam at 757-428-7218 or email tidewatersharks@yahoo.com.
