Welcome - Girl Youth South Central Wisconsin

Windmill Fastpitch Softball



We have seen much interest in our EOY Tournament shirt with the cancellation stamp across the front with the title song of "Don't Stand So Close to Me" recorded by the Police printed on the back. Surrounding the title is a rectangular frame with the names of all the teams intending to play this year. 

COACHES - Please collect a team order whenever possible to avoid a whole team from ordering individually.

Well it is now available for purchase by players, coaches and the general public. Cost is $10.00 per shirt. If the shirt is to be mailed, there is a $5.00 S&H cost. Teams may pay through their organization while Barb will set up a PayPal link for individual purchases. We ask that you send PayPal payments through Friends and Family.

See REGISTER ON-Line upper right corner this page for PURCHASE FORM!




ANNOUNCEMENT (7/21/2020)

Barb and I have made the difficult decision to cancel the Windmill EOY Tournament scheduled for August 14, 15 and 16.

Our season has been definitely new ground for all of us. Barb and I have done what we could to make the season happen.  We think all of you have done a good job with the mindset of taking one day at a time and not trying to plan too far ahead because we didn’t know what was going to happen.

However, once the season started Barb and my focus shifted to creating a plan for our EOY Tournament. A tournament such as ours typically attracts 1500 players and coaches plus thousands of family members. We came to the conclusion that we do not have the monetary or people resources to mitigate the risks associated with the coronavirus and a gathering as large as ours.

While there may be no illnesses that originate from the tournament, or no proof that cases may have resulted in the gathering, the tournament could place umpires, players and their friends and family members in a risky position. Ensuring compliance to social distancing, frequent hand-washing and disinfecting surfaces would be difficult and we believe erring on the side of caution is better for all involved.

We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, but we know it’s the right decision. Barb and I will be reaching out directly to any team already registering for the tournament with information about providing a refund.

You may click on Team and Rosters found on the navigation bar for the names and contact info of coaches in the event you need to contact one another for game location and any restrictions their community may have in place. Schedules are going on-line over the next few days. In the meantime coaches please keep checking your emails for new schedule releases as teams come on board and new information and/or reminders are given as to field availability. Sorry but it does happen.

If you get frustrated, please take a deep breath. We are accommodating over 50 teams and each are doing their best to make this season happen for their players.

2020 EOY Tournament

The 2020 Windmill EOY Tournament is being held on Friday, July 31 - Saturday, August 1 - Sunday, August 2 in Watertown, WI.




Sliding foot first into a base accounts for 23.3 percent of injuries among girls across all age ranges, but only 11.9 percent of injuries among boys. Not surprisingly, the body part among girls most frequently injured is the ankle, at 21.4 percent. Fingers and thumbs come a distant second at 11.4. percent.  It’s important that players are taught the basic or “Figure Four” method of sliding, where one leg is positioned straight ahead to reach the base, and the other leg is bent and foot tucked under runner so as not get in the way. The video below demonstrates the proper sliding technique.








An interesting and fun take on a Fall Softball Program while maintaining a competitive interest. Here is what the parameters and a schedule look like! 

All games are to be scheduled by the teams listed. Games may be played the same week and the days played may be mixed up. To add interest to the schedule the first 3 weeks will be a ROUND ROBIN.

Afterward, Weeks 4 thru 6 will be a seeded 4 team tournament with a 3 game guarantee played over a 3 week period. The seeding will be determined by the first 3 weeks of play. Games again will be scheduled by the teams opposing one another. A schedule for the first 3 weeks is to be determined before league play begins. The week 4 schedule will be determined at the conclusion of the first 3 weeks. To accomplish this we will have an email exchange prior to the start of the fall season.  

Umpires – the host secures the umpires unless other arrangements are made; but regardless, each team will share the umpire expense. Any costs for field rental or prep is to be shared. Umpires are paid before the game begins (no checks). 

Field use - the designated home team will host the game or arrange for the game to be played at the opponents site or a neutral site. In the first 3 weeks the team listed 2nd is the home team. In the final 3 weeks the team seeded the highest after the first 3 weeks is the home team. Any associated field/umpire expense is shared equally between the teams playing.

The game format and report of scores information is found by clicking here.

The schedule by week is:

 4 Team Round Robin

Team 1 = Marshall – Jessie Stuntebeck <jessiejo5@yahoo.com>

Team 2 + Mad City Crush Red - Tracy Earll <tracyearll1@gmail.com>

Team 3 = Deerfield - Ryan Fankhauser (ruggerbuzz@hotmail.com)

Week 2

Week 3

 4 Team Tournament - 3GG

Seed is determined by the results of the first 3 weeks of play. When there is a 2-way tie, the winner of the game where the 2 tied competitors played against each other is awarded the higher seed standing.

 Week Four – Game 1 = Seed 1 v Seed 4; Game 2 = Seed 2 v Seed 3

Week Five – Game 3 = W1 v W2; Game 4 = L1 v L2; Game 5 = L3 v L4

 Week Six – Game 6 = W4 v W5; Game 7 = W3 v W6; Game 8 = W7 v L7 If First Loss

All games are to be scheduled by the teams listed.

Sunday Time Change

Please note changes to times of Sunday games in the following Division brackets. The changes are hi-lited in RED.

Division 10U USA Dk Blue as of 8/03/2019 

Division 12U USA Lt Red as of 7/31/2019


We did some changes for the 10U MOD Tournament based upon the final standings and won loss records at this level. Ultimately the challenge was to set up a bracket in which players can compete.

The brackets we came up with allow participants from the highest skill level all the way to beginners to meet and play others around their same level of play. These replace the previous brackets. Please let parents and fans know of these changes. 

Division 10U Mod Red Accent as of 7/31/2019 [Game 7 is played Friday]

Division 10U Mod Aqua as of 7/31/2019

Division 10U Mod Olive Green as of 7/31/2019 


Tournament Schedule

The post of the times/dates for tournament games on the website will be soon but we do want to avoid any re-seeding so we need to look whether the outcome of any games yet to be played will have an effect on the standings and what we intend to do if so. That is an “as of” decision Barb and I will be making.
