Whitby 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 league 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.

If you would prefer to register by cheque, click here to download a registration form. You may mail it and the appropriate payment to the address on the form or drop it off at the WGSA mailbox at Iroquois Park.

Registrants will receive a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) number and accreditation. A light lunch will be included.

When: Saturday, May 3, 2014, 8:30am - 4:30pm
Where: Abilities Centre, 55 Gordon Street, Whitby
Fee: $110 per registrant.

The 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.
An email has been sent out to everyone registered in 2013 and those registered so far in 2014 with instructions for accessing the receipts for the 2013 season. Some of these emails where returned as undeliverable.
Basically, this notice simply gave instructions on how to obtain your 2013 receipt. First you log on using the boxes to the right. (For all WGSA members, your username is your name -- parent's name -- as provided to us on your child's registration form, in the format FIRST NAME SPACE LAST NAME.) If you don't know your password, type in your username, click the checkbox that says "Email me my password" and then click on the button. This will create another random password and email it to the address that we have on file for you. You can then use this password to log in.
Once you have logged on the receipt can be found at the bottom of the page. If you do not have success with this process, please contact our webmaster, Anthony Skanes
This has been a very interesting season in terms of weather. We have had rainy weather and (almost) unbearably hot weather, with little in between. What's the solution? A WGSA umbrella, large enough to keep you and your loved ones sheltered from both the rain and the sun.
If you would like to purchase one of these stylish, logo-emblazoned umbrellas for a mere $25 dollars and show your association spirit, please contact Jane Silver.
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.
