8U is where all the fun starts (not worrying about her college softball career)! Click here for more 8U information.
10U is where learning and having fun is so important. For the higher skill set player, we offer not only in-house but Wasco Warriors (light travel) to Silver Hawks.
12U is where kids can still be kids, be with their friends and continue to grow and/or start to take it to the "next level" and look at full time travel options. Again, they can stay in-house, they can try out for Wasco Warriors or tryout for Silver Hawks.
14U -18U: In-house players continue to have fun, hone their skills, be with their friends and leave time for other activities and/or try out for full time travel options such as Silver Hawks or Dennison Silver Hawks.
ALL OF WHICH IS RIGHT HERE! One Place - with people you know - coaches you know - at fields that you know! Wasco Silver Hawks!

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the Silver Hawks and Dennison Silver Hawk Travel organization and are now the Wasco Silver Hawks! This will give our players a complete experience; from pre-k -12th grade rec (in-house) to light travel (Warriors/Silver Hawk All-Stars) to full time travel (STC Silver Hawks) JV and Varsity to college opportunities (Dennison College Exposure Silver Hawks) and beyond! Here’s how:
From pre-K to 12th grade, if a player wants to play and stay in-house, here we are!
From 8U-16U, if a player wants to play and stay “light travel” with an abbreviated schedule and smaller financial requirement than full time travel, here we are!
From 8U-18U, if a player wants to and makes our full time travel teams with an extended season, here we are!
And finally, from 14U-18U, a player envisions playing in college with the hope of receiving scholarships and makes the Dennison Silver Hawks, here we are!
Last year, the St Charles Angels merged with the Silver Hawks with much success and we are so excited to be included in this clear, concise vision for all area softball players from all levels! So what does this mean for you and your player?
We will still be playing at our home fields and we'll have additional options on the east side of St Charles.
You will still see a lot of the same, familiar faces but will add additional travel players to assist with clinics and camps, and offer private instruction as well.
Your player will have tons more opportunities to train and play not only with additional college players but with more options at our indoor training facility.
Your player will have a clear-cut path from pre-k to college exposure teams if desired.
Your player can still play in-house or continue onto full time travel (and everything in between) with a precise path to their desired success.
And your player will get more night games (under the lights).
Everything option under one roof! You and your player decide what’s right for you!
Now is the time to move forward with this exciting adventure! As always, it takes a village. Join us in volunteering to make this time the best possible opportunity for your player and family. As you can imagine, we’ll need a few more Commissioners, Board Members, Directors, and “Where Needed,” to embark on this exciting journey! We’ve laid out everything your daughter may need or want without any additional expenses or inconveniences! What could be better?!!!!! We hope are as excited as we are to be a part of this premier organization!
"One of the biggest problems in youth sports is that kids don't know how to fail. There aren't winners and losers anymore. A vital part of life is learning how to navigate, handle and overcome adversity. Your kids will learn a lot more from failure than from success."

Discover the Wasco Difference
Excellence has no boundaries....some of our players come from over 30 miles away to have the best rec 'sball experience! And WHY?! 30 years of doing one thing....Softball. Our players are constantly growing and developing as ball players. Our coaches are taught the most state-of-the-art approaches as taught by the best collegiate coaches in the business including LSU, 'Bama, UCLA, Michigan, Wisconsin and more. They spend hundreds of hours promoting and respecting the game of youth softball. This is all Wasco does year round is softball. Why settle for anything less than the best for your daughter.We believe that girls should be empowered and strengthened. If you play a sport, you play it like an athlete. Athletes are not defined by gender but by one's commitment and desire to achieve success through setting and achieving personal goals via competition. And with competition comes failure and success and how to handle both situations with dignity and grace is our goal. Here at Wasco, we play by the same rules as any athlete. If you hit a homerun, you earned it. If you hit a triple, you earned it. If you struck out, you earned it. We do not believe in handicapping a player because she is female. We believe in learning, teaching, growing, respecting. While we are a recreational league, we believe in teaching the player to give everything your best effort every time and that we are a part of a TEAM and that means a player should make themselves better, they make their teammates better, and they make the game better. WHILE having fun.
Fees are the same regardless of where you live - no "out of district" fees.
We treat everyone like family.
Join the most respected and well-established league around.
Celebrating our 30th year!

Did You Know That...? ...we get goosebumps because our ancestors were once covered in thick body hair. When the tiny muscles in each follicle contracted, the hair would stand on end to insulate their skin or make them look larger when threatened. These muscles may seem useless now that we aren't fully covered with hair, but recent discoveries show that they also protect the stem cells our skin needs to heal itself when injured.
...you can get a dog to help you if you are fearful of having to testify in court. There are facilities that provide dogs to give emotional support to people in legal proceedings. These facility dogs are trained to do a variety of tasks in high-stress situations, and provide a calming presence to those who must relive a traumatic experience on the witness stand, or testify in front of their attacker.
...people you're talking to on the phone decide whether they trust you by the way you say "hello.'

...winning 3rd place might be better than coming in 2nd.
