Who Can Play WAA Woodbury Fastpitch? 

Girls that are between the ages of 8 to 18 & attend a school in Woodbury or live in the City of Woodbury.

A player from another community will be able to play for WAA Woodbury if she receives a waiver from her current association. This exception must be communicated and agreed upon by both associations.  Age groups 14U, 16U & 18U do not require a waiver as those age groups are considered open.

Age Groups Are Classified As

  • 18U - Girls born in 2003 & 2004
  • 16U – Girls born in 2005 & 2006
  • 14U - Girls born in 2007 & 2008

  • 10U - Girls born in 2011, 2012 & 2013 ~ Girls must be 8 yrs old to play 10U

Tryouts

Our goal is to provide a tryout environment that is fair to all players and allows them to demonstrate their abilities to a group of neutral parties. The tryout drills are predetermined and are intended to demonstrate specific skills for the evaluators on a point scale. 

Tryouts will be held at Ojibway Park September 18th.  Upon signing in at her age appropriate time, each girl will be assigned a number. She will then go into the complex to be evaluated. Parents are not allowed inside the complex during the evaluation process. All evaluations are recorded based on the numbers assigned at check-in. Each girl will be evaluated on the following general skill areas: Infield, Outfield, Throwing, Catching & Hitting. Girls will have the option to tryout for pitcher & catcher positions upon completion of the general stations. The girls (based on the numbers assigned at the beginning of the process) are ranked based on their evaluations. Each girl will complete two rotations in Infield, Outfield, Throwing, Catching & Hitting.
