WGSA's Anniversary

Anniversary Logo

2015 represents the 40th Anniversary of the Whitby Girls Softball Association. To celebrate this milestone we will be having many special events, including an enhanced Skills Day, a special WGSA Blue Jays day, and many more. As you can see we have also added a banner to our logo commemorating our anniversary.

We look forward to a memorable year.

WGSA's Touques


Thanks to everyone who came out for our Annual Free Skate on December 29th. The place was packed and everyone had a lot of fun. Our new WGSA touques were a big hit, but we still have a few left. If you would like to purchase one for $10, please contact Paul Tobin. Be quick, supplies are limited.

Whitby 2014 Santa Claus Parade

2014 Santa Claus Parade

Once again the Whitby Santa Claus parade was a big success and WGSA is proud to have been part of it.

We had many players and parents from the 2014 season walking along with Executive members and the excitement was palpable. We handed out tons of candy canes and premiered out new WGSA toques, complete with the 40 Anniversary logo.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Code of Conduct

Code of ConductThe WGSA has offered girls the opportunity to compete, improve skills, improve fitness and, most importantly, have fun, for over thirty years. In that time we have been proud of the skill level of our coaches and players evidenced by our consistently high results in Select Tournaments and by the level of play in our house league program.

As an organization we continually strive to offer our membership more value for their dollar and will continue to strive to improve ourselves. One step forward in this ongoing process may be found in this year's players packages, which will be distributed by coaches: a new Code of Conduct for players and parents. These go along with the Codes of Conduct that are being signed for the first time by coaches and umpires of WGSA. As you read these you will unlikely find anything new or revolutionary. They are simply a formal statement of everyone's commitment to the same ideals: fairness, tolerance, respect and fun. By stating everyone's intent up front, we will all maintain our commitment to these worthy goals.

Select Tryouts

Lightning LogoWhitby Girls Softball Association has been fielding very competitive Select Teams in all divisions for a number of years and the upcoming season will be no different. Select softball is a program where teams representing their association play against teams from other towns. The games are on weekends with extra practices, travelling and expenses being involved.

All registered House League players from Mite to Midget are invited and urged to try out for a Select Team in their age group. It is a great way to play some competitive ball, meet teams from others areas surrounding the GTA and, most importantly, have FUN.

Click here to see the schedule of tryouts, all of which will take place at Ash Park.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Select program, especially if you have not indicated an interest in Select on your registration form, please contact Al Betts or Chris Leeder

Winter Clinics

Once again the WGSA -- through the organizational and instructional skills of our president, Stacy Novack, Select convenor, Al Betts, and Board member, Andy Roddau -- is pleased to offer to our members the opportunity to hone your softball skills through a number of clinics over the course of the winter. These six-week clinics are a great value at a cost of $40 per girl per session, (except for the two-week Catching Clinics which are $15 per girl per session) to cover the cost of the gym rental.

Please note that these clinics are only open to those girls who have registered for the 2015 softball season. All clinics will take place at the Oshawa YWCA (at the corner of Simcoe St S and McGrigor Ave) on Sundays. The first clinics begin on Sunday, January 11th. Players can attend one or many sessions. Please note that we may adjust the clinics depending upon the demand we see in the next couple of weeks -- particularly based upon the interest by age groups. Please act quickly as the clinics tend to fill up fast, especially the pitching clinics.

Pitching Clinics (Full)

Session 3 1 - 2 pm Feb 22 - Mar 29
Session 4 2 - 3 pm Feb 22 - Mar 29

Catching Clinics (Must have 6 players per session to run.)

Session 2 Noon - 1 pm Mar 22 - Mar 29 (2 weeks)

Conditioning and Skills Clinics

Session 1 3 - 4 pm Feb 22 - Mar 29 Ages 8 - 10
Session 2 4 - 5 pm Feb 22 - Mar 29 Ages 11 and older

Please tell your friends about these clinics, but let them know that they are available only to players registered for the 2015 season.

Long Term Player Development

Long Term Play Development

WGSA has long been concerned with the physical fitness of our community and has been committed to providing fitness opportunities for girls from ages 5 - 24. Within the last few years Canada, through its participation with sports organizations, has also become committed to formalizing this ideal.
