A: There are several things: First a clear understanding of what the WISCONSIN ALL-STARS stands for; full support of our CODE OF CONDUCT AGREEMENT; ACTIVE PARTICIPATION BY EVERYONE …our program plan is not to have the players, families and coaches just show up to play baseball … it is very critical that everyone associated with the Wisconsin All-Stars overall program HELP BUILD THE PROGRAM NOT ONLY FOR TODAY BUT FOR THE FUTURE. (EG., showing up and participating with our camps and tryouts, solicit sponsorships,  help identify prospective players/families that would fit in with our standards and directions, and to help support the development, enjoyment and success of everyone associated with the Wisconsin All-Stars.
