Warminster Women's Softball League

 

Warminster Baseball and Softball is an all volunteer, non-profit organization. The organization is entirely funded by registration fees, fundraisers and sponsors. From t-shirts and caps, to the sheds and everything in them, your generous support makes it happen. We would like to thank the parents, sponsors, coaches, managers and directors for their time, talent and support. Also, we thank the Centennial School District and Warminster Township, for the use of their fields!

Proud of Our Teams!

Steve,  

I just wanted to send you a quick note about Saturday's game.  First, you have a heck of a team that made one heck of a run to get to the championship, and then battled through the very last out.  I thought it would be impossible for any team to win 3 straight games during playoff weekend and you guys certainly proved me wrong after you knocked off LV, Valley and Holland.  But more importantly, it was the actions of your team after the game that was so inspiring to me, my coaches, our players and the parents of our players.  One of our parents had a pool party Saturday night for all the kids, and during it, one of the biggest topics of conversation was about how you and your players came over and clapped for our guys after we had both received our trophies.  What a class act!  And I wanted you to know that it truly did not go unnoticed.  We couldn't talk highly enough about your team and we were all talking to our kids about how classy it was to have done what you did. Hope you have a great rest of the summer!

Batting Helmets!

Batting Helmets are required for all ages of baseball and softball. The addition of a facemask is required for softball players. While a couple team helmets will be made available to players, it is highly recommended that players bring their own helmet, that they do not share. Head lice has become a common problem in our school district and may be spread through sharing of head gear. You will certainly find a good selection of gear in sporting goods stores. Helmets can also be found discounted at local department stores. 

Coaches should wear helmets! Retailers offer "Base Coach Helmets" for about $20. This is REQUIRED equipment for all Connie Mack base coaches.

Call for Sponsors!

Have you considered becoming a sponsor? Now, is a great time! New, with a $125 contribution, the WBSA will create a 4'x2.5' sign for an outfield fence or backstop! For details, the following sponsorship programs are available [click here]. Your donation will help our boys and girls with equipment, uniforms and field facilities they deserve. Without your help, it would not be possible to run this organization. THANK YOU!

How are our dues spent?

The WBSA is an all volunteer, non profit organization. Annually, we register about 800 of our township children (including Fall Ball). This results in an operating budget of about $120,000. On average, $150 is spent to provide for each player. We thank you for your support!
