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.

"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...?
...Billy Joel never sells tickets to the front rows of his concerts. Aside from wanting to beat the scalpers, he got tired of all the bored, rich people staring up at him - so now, he sends his road crew out to bring down the fans from the worst seats so there'll be "people in the front row that are really happy to be there, real fans."
...If you're talking to someone and they start blinking a lot, they may have stopped paying attention. Blinking, much like closing your eyes, puts up a barrier against the outside world and allows your brain to focus on something else. Studies show that when a person starts to blink more rapidly, it suggests their mind is wandering.
...Abraham Lincoln was a 'crazy cat lady'. He regularly took in strays at the White House and was gifted two kittens, Tabby and Dixie, by a cabinet member. He was so in love with the duo that he fed Tabby under the table at a state dinner once and was heard exclaiming, "Dixie is smarter than my whole cabinet! And furthermore she doesn't talk back."
...When you want someone to agree to your request, using the phrase 'but you are free to refuse' can double your chances. While studies show it works equally well no matter the type of request, how or why it works remains unclear but there are theories that it puts people at ease, because it shows respect and makes them feel like their freedom to say no isn't being violated.
...There's a biological reason why we can't resist puppy dog eyes. Sustained eye contact significantly raises oxytocin levels in both humans and dogs, which encourages love, trust, and bonding. This response isn't even found in hand-raised wolves, which suggests humans and dogs may have co-evolved to share this trait in order to be companions.
...You might live longer if you're extroverted, optimistic, agreeable, open-minded, and emotionally stable. Studies show that people with these traits can have stronger immune systems, healthier hearts, and longer life spans.
