This is a Spring/Summer competitive, skills based, player pitch, traveling league and an evaluation is used. There is a risk that cuts will be made, and no player is guaranteed a spot on any team regardless of team placement in previous leagues/seasons. For those who wish to skip the evaluation process and have equal playing time please register and play in our recreation league next spring/summer.


U10-U12 play in the Big West Softball league, 2 local tournaments, State Qualifiers tournament and potentially the State Tournament if they qualify. Teams could also qualify and opt to participate in Nationals.

League games will be played one or two nights per week, Mon-Thursday, however, if games are rescheduled due to weather you could potentially play Fri/Sat/Sun. The league plays double headers on game nights. Tournaments will be on weekends.

Your age on December 31, 2021 determines where you play in the Big West league.
Girls in 3rd grade born after December 31, 2012 are eligible to participate in the 10U
League. 2nd Graders (2021-2022 school year) are NOT eligible to participate.

There is no guarantee that there will be enough players to fill out a team. If there are enough girls, multiple teams could be created. Independent evaluators will be used. WAA and the Softball Advisory Board will also consider previous season coaches evaluations to create teams. In the event you were evaluated and not selected to the Big West Softball League you will receive a full refund minus the $15 evaluation fee/$10 processing fee ($25 total.) An email will be sent after evaluations to explain additional softball options.

All uniforms will be available at the January evaluation for participants to try on so the correct size is ordered. A parent/guardian must come in to tryouts with their player and have the child try on the jersey. Parents/guardians will be asked to initial that they have tried on the uniforms and the correct size was selected. WAA is not liable if the uniform was not tried on and the correct size wasn’t selected.
