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 forwarded to a memorable year.
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.

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.
The touques that were sported at the Santa Claus parade were such a popular item that we will be selling them at the December 29th WGSA Skate at McKinney Arena for $10 each. If you would like one be sure to arrive early since supplies are limited.
Hey everyone. Last year, our Skating Event was so successful and well attended we said "let's do it again"! We hope lots of other WGSA members feel the same.
We would like to invite all current WGSA members, their immediate families (parents, sisters, brothers, etc) and any 2015 potential new members, to WGSA's 2nd Annual Free Skate at McKinney Arena on December 29th from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. We have reserved the figure skating pad at the McKinney arena for all WGSA members, friends and hopefully some new 2015 players. We think this is a great opportunity to see some of your friends from the 2014 ball season and skate off that extra turkey and chocolate you ate on Christmas day!!
In the spirit of this season of giving, the WGSA is also having a food drive at this event. If you are joining us, please feel free to bring a non-perishable food item for our food drive.
For anyone joining us, the WGSA would like to remind everyone that, for safety reasons, the wearing of a proper skating/hockey helmet is recommended, but not mandatory. So mark the date (December 29th), get those skates sharpened, call your team mates from last season and let's get together for some WGSA fun on ice!!
For those wishing to participate, please send an email to Paul Tobin or just show at McKinney Arena between 6:30 and 8:30 pm.
We will be also holding a 2015 registration drive at the same time. This is a great chance to get registered for the upcoming 2015 season. Time flies so why not register on December 29th and get it out of the way!?!
Please Note: Our new WGSA winter Toques were such a hit at out Parade event, many asked if they could be purchased. We will have a limited quantity available on December 29th for sale at a cost of $10.00 each.
Al Betts and Paul Tobin, Directors, WGSA.
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.
