WAA Woodbury In-House Softball

The WAA In-House Softball program is the larger of the two WAA Woodbury softball programs in terms of participants. This program is less of a time commitment and has a shorter season than our Traveling program.

The main goal of the In-House program is to teach softball skills. During this process we want to create a fair and organized approach to securing players, coaches & volunteers.

Program Principles:

  • Make the sport fun for the kids, coaches & parents.
  • Teamwork
  • Give kids equal playing time
  • Teach fundamentals of the game
  • Demonstrate sportsmanship both on and off the field

WAA Woodbury In-House Softball is intended to be a moderately competitive experience with the opportunity to have fun and learn softball fundamentals. If you are wanting a more competitive experience, our WAA Traveling Softball program should be considered.

Season Length

The WAA In-House Softball season begins with practices mid April (If City Has Opened Fields) and concludes with the end of the year tournament July 22nd.

DIBS/Volunteer Requirement

WAA Woodbury In-House softball families are REQUIRED to fulfill 90 minutes of DIBS/Volunteer hours.

If a family wish wishes to opt-out of the volunteer requirement you can do so by paying a $ 100.00 fee

Should a family not fulfill their volunteer requirement of 90 minutes, they will be charged a $ 100.00 fee on July 31st, 2019.

Please keep in mind we do not want your money.

Volunteering is very important for the success of the end of the year tournament.

Notes about DIBS:

  1. DIBS sessions will open approximately 1-2 weeks prior to the tournament.
  2. DIBS are first-come-first-serve.
