What to make a difference? "Don't speak the problem. Speak the solution." Click here for available board positions.
"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?! 31 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 31st year!

Did You Know That...? ...fictional characters might not be real, but our relationships with them are. Studies show it's difficult for our brains to distinguish between our familiarity with characters on TV and our personal relationships with real people. The effect is so strong that just thinking about watching your favorite TV show can make you feel less lonely.
...almost all mammals live for around 1 billion heartbeats. For a rabbit, which has a quick pulse, it takes about 3 years to reach a billion heartbeats, but a slow-pulsed elephant can go more than 80 years. Only humans can push their hearts past 2 billion, thanks to modern medicine, food preservation technology, and water purification.
...studies show that people decide if you're trustworthy, adventurous, successful, smart, extroverted, or likeable within the first three seconds of meeting you.
...the oldest sibling is usually the most well behaved. First born children receive more parental attention in early childhood, and their main influences are generally adults. This leads to them developing better behavioral habits than their second born siblings, who get less overall attention and often learn more from other kids than they do from grown-ups.
...taking a few moments to pause and observe nature can improve your mood. Literally 'stopping and smelling the roses' or noticing things like a bird, a house plant, a dandelion in the side-walk, or just the sun shining through the window can boost your happiness and well-being.
...If you keep your cool when being criticized, you're more likely to have high self-esteem - people with a low self- image tend to become aggressive and lash out when receiving criticism.
