Please Respect Posted No-Parking Signs

Please NoteUnfortunately, some of the diamonds that we play at, notably Ash Park, 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. If you park in a court, like near Ash Park, you can't park in the center of the court. Respecting the posted no-parking signs and ensuring that you are parking legally is for the safety of everyone and helps us keep a positive reputation within our community (not to mention avoiding parking tickets).

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.

Undefeated in Brantford

Whitby Challenger Baseball League Needs You!

The Challenger Baseball League is a special needs league right here in Whitby. Players get the opportunity to participate in baseball games with the assistance of kind and generous volunteers. Participants pay nothing to join with the cost of jerseys, etc. being paid out of pocket by their Coach, Norman Sheppard.

You can help out with this worthwhile endeavour in a number of ways.

First, Marigold Ford Lincoln Sales Ltd. is hosting a Drive4URCommunity event. The public is invited to take a free test drive and Ford of Canada will donate $20 per ride to the Whitby Challengers. They could earn up to $6000. They are in need of volunteers. If you can spare an hour or two, it would be greatly appreciated. They are running the event on Saturday June 3rd, between 10am and 4pm.

In addition, the Whitby Blues Festival, Saturday June 24th, is looking for volunteers to stand at the gates, and collect donations for the Whitby Challengers. If you are able to spare some time, between 11am and 7pm, it would appreciated.

Finally, the Challengers play weekly for one hour on Saturdays. They would love to have a whole WGSA team assist if they can! One game, one hour. We realize that your schedule is huge, but it's a fun hour giving back to the community, with high school community hours be offered. 13 years and older please.

If you are able to volunteer in any of these areas, either individually or with your team, please contact Tracy Roulston, Sales Manager, Marigold Ford Lincoln Sales Ltd., troulston@marigold.net
