Sunday Winter Clinics
For many years the WGSA has offered clinics on Sunday afternoons. These have been so popular that we have expanded them to Saturday evenings as well.
The Sunday afternoon clinics remain focused on Pitching and General Skills. Click here to download a registration form that you can fill out and bring to the clinic with you. If you intend to register, please contact Stacy Novack prior to coming so that a spot can be held for you.
These clinics run from February 25th to April 8th and are a great value at a cost of $40 per girl per session to cover the cost of the gym rental.
Please note that these clinics are only open to those girls who have registered for the 2018 softball season. All clinics will take place at the Oshawa YWCA (at the corner of Simcoe St S and McGrigor Ave). 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.
||1 - 2 pm
||2 - 3 pm
|General Skills (throwing, fielding hitting)
||3 - 4 pm
Please tell your friends about these clinics, but let them know that they are available only to players registered for the 2018 season.

WGSA Text Messaging About Rainouts
Did you know that the WGSA has a text messaging service used to inform parents when rainouts occur? With all of the rain that we have had this season, many people have found this service to be extremely useful.
If you would like to benefit from this service, log onto your WGSA account and edit your profile to add a cell phone number. The text messages are automatically sent to anyone who has recorded their cell phone number. (Don't worry if you don't remember how to log on. Go to the log on page and you will see instructions for finding your username and having your password emailed to you.
On the other hand, if you have been receiving these messages, but would rather opt out, simply log on and delete your cell phone number.
Please DO NOT reply to these text messages. The service is automated and the phone number is not monitored for incoming messages.
Hopefully, we won't need to take advantage of this service for the upcoming season.
Please Respect Posted No-Parking Signs
Unfortunately, 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, in a legal spot, 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).
Some of the most common parking infractions include:
- Parking in a signed no parking or no stopping area
- Parking within 1m of a driveway or laneway
- Parking within 10m of an intersection
- Parking within 3m of a fire hydrant
- Parking on the street for more than 3 hours
- Parking in a fire route
- Interfering with road maintenance

Long Term Player Development
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.
