Whitpain Softball is for girls age 6 through 16. To register now, click the green Log In button at the top right of this page.
The online registration system will automatically determine the appropriate division (and softball age) for your daughter based upon her age as of January 1st.
For softball ages 6-8, our rookie division teaches players the basic fundamentals and rules of the sport in a relaxed environment.
Coaches pitch to players and no scores are kept. Players and parents should expect two scheduled activities per week (Monday through Saturday); games or practices. In addition to home games, teams travel to the neighboring towns of Ambler, East Norriton, and Lower Gwynedd. They may even get a chance to play under the lights for an evening game!
Softball ages 9-10 graduate to our more competitive 10u Division, where WRA teams compete inside the ICGSL (Inter-Community Girls Softball League) which consists of 15+ teams from surrounding areas including Abington, Ambler, Ardsley, Glenside, Huntington Valley, Upper Dublin, and more!
10u operates under a modified version of the American Softball Association Rules and features kid pitching, limited base stealing, professional home plate umpires, W-L records, an All Star Game, and an end-of-season tournament! Players and parents should expect 3 scheduled activities per week including practices, home games, and away games.
For softball ages 11-12 and 13-15, our 12u and 15u divisions compete within the ICGSL (Inter-Community Girls Softball League) and play under official ASA rules. Home games are played at Wentz Run Park and teams travel to townships throughout Eastern Montergomery County. Players and parents should expect at least 3 scheduled activities Monday through Saturday; games or practices.
For our youngest girls, ages 5-6, WRA offers the fast-moving Quickball Program. Quickball is a revolutionary program designed for girls and boys who are just beginning to explore the games of baseball and softball. Quickball makes the game more active and exciting to play and watch! Participants are always on the move with this fast-paced modern take on Tee-ball.
