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 clinics are a great value at a cost of $40 per girl, to cover the cost of the gym rental.
Please note that these clinics are only open to those girls who have registered for the 2014 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 12th. 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.
|Session 1||1 - 2 pm||Jan 12 - Feb 16|
|Session 2||2 - 3 pm||Jan 12 - Feb 16|
|Session 3||1 - 2 pm||Feb 23 - Mar 30|
|Session 4||2 - 3 pm||Feb 23 - Mar 30|
General Skills Clinics (proper throwing, fielding, hitting)
|Session 1||3 - 4 pm||Jan 12 - Feb 16||Ages 7 - 9|
|Session 2||4 - 5 pm||Jan 12 - Feb 16||Ages 10 - 11|
Conditioning and Skills Clinics
|Session 1||3 - 4 pm||Feb 23 - Mar 30||Ages 8 - 10|
|Session 2||4 - 5 pm||Feb 23 - Mar 30||Ages 11 and older|
*** Possible *** Specialized Clinics
Catching Clinics - Catching position instruction will be offered during pitching clinics, but if there is sufficient interest a 2 week catchers-only clinic will be offered at $15 per participant. (Likely at noon during a couple of Sundays over this time period.) Contact Stacy to indicate interest.
Please tell your friends about these clinics, but let them know that they are available only to players registered for the 2014 season.
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. If you have not received your email and would like to access your 2013 receipt, please contact our webmaster, Anthony Skanes
Come out to McDonald's at 200 Taunton Rd E, Whitby on Saturday, March 8th from 3pm to 5pm to register your daughter. McDonald's will be sponsoring our youngest two divisions, so what a better place to sign up?
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Whitby Santa Clause Parade on December 7th. The weather was sunny and beautiful, perfect for a walk through town.

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.
