Ocee Park Athletic Association (OPAA) sponsors youth T-Ball and Baseball programs for boys and girls ages 4 to 15 years old. Since our founding in 1993, OPAA has enjoyed many years of recreational and competitive baseball. We offer multiple levels of play in many age groups and welcome all into our program. OPAA leagues play and practice at Ocee Park (a City of Johns Creek park) located on Buice Road in Johns Creek, GA. OPAA's Board of Directors, managers, coaches and many others are volunteers who are dedicated to OPAA's vision and mission.

Chartered under Dizzy Dean League, OPAA follows the rules and regulations established by Dizzy Dean League for baseball. According to the charter from Dizzy Dean, Ocee Park's league territory is Northeast Fulton County.

PHILOSOPHY
The philosophy of OPAA is to provide a recreational program and multi-level competitive program for the boys and girls in our geographic area. The focus of our program is toward teaching skills, promoting good sportsmanship and having fun. OPAA believes there is great value in teaching boys and girls of all ages the values and rewards of competition all within a framework of good sportsmanship. Many youth sports programs today de-emphasize competition but OPAA feels that this does not prepare our youth adequately. The overall competitiveness of the program increases in the older divisions, but the general OPAA philosophy applies to all age groups.
