Would you Like to be a Sponsor?
Sponsors are a vital part of WGSA. It is through their financial participation that we are able to provide athletic and fun-filled opportunities for girls in Whitby.
The WGSA typically has around 500 players participating, with over 40 House League teams that need team sponsors. Their help is vital as, since 2018, the imposition of Municipal User Fees that have impacted our operating costs significantly.
We take great pride in ensuring the sport of softball is affordable for families. This is where our valued sponsors support these efforts, keeping our program affordable to everyone.
We are starting to plan our 2024 season and taking team sponsors. If you would like to participate, please see our Sponsor page for further details and to download the appropriate forms.

Code of Conduct
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.
