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

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.

Sponsorship Opportunities Available

The WGSA is committed to continue making softball affordable for all interested girls living in Whitby. Towards that goal, the WGSA partners with local businesses and organizations in the community with the intent to keep registration fees as low as possible. As you might imagine, the WGSA is always looking for new sponsors. The cost of sponsoring one house-league team for the season is currently $325, which pays for team jerseys with the sponsor's name and logo crested on them. If you are aware of any local business or organization who might be willing to participate, please send a note to Stacy Novack.

Please Respect Posted No-Parking Signs

Please NoteUnfortunately, some of the diamonds that we play at, notably West Lynde and Tom Edwards, have very limited parking. Sometimes this means that parents must park around the corner from a diamond and walk back to it. Please do this if you must. Respecting the posted no-parking signs and ensuring that you are parking legally is for the safety of everyone.
