The Arrowhead High School Boys Baseball program begins its season this spring when athletes will tryout over the span of three days from Monday, March 18th to Wednesday, March 20th. 


All athletes must have completed their online concussion form, WIAA form, and parent permission form, as well as having a current physical green card on file in the North Campus Activities Office in order to participate. 


Equipment needed for tryouts includes outdoor baseball cleats and indoor tennis shoes, a baseball glove, and water bottle. 


According to Arrowhead High School, the program consists of four teams: Varsity, Junior Varsity and the Freshman Blue and Red teams. Tryouts are in late March and the season concludes with the WIAA state tournament in the middle of June. 


The Varsity Head Coach is Arrowhead math teacher Nick Brengosz assisted by Christopher Pier and Arrowhead special education teacher Dave Bechtel. 


Junior Varsity is coached by Blake Rathkamp. The Freshman teams are coached by Chris Skaros and Nick Hauser.
