Within the limits of a volunteer organization, WAC Softball strives to make the tryout process as impartial as possible. Girls will be placed on teams primarily based on their prior tournament play and commitment to a competitive softball experience as well as their try-out results. Residency: To be eligible to participate on one of the competitive tournament teams you must attend a school within the Waukee School District. 8U, 10U and 12U teams will have a limited roster of 10-12 players. Since we are limiting our rosters, you need to make the commitment for your player to be at practices and tournaments.
Practice schedules are set for the fall by Aug. 1 and typically include two outdoor sessions and one indoor session held as weather permits until the end of the fall league/tournament schedule. Twice weekly indoor practices begin in the first week of January 2020 for all teams and switch to two outdoor and one indoor rotation as weather permits typically in March through end of season.
8U, 10U and 12U Fees are used for Uniforms, Player/Coach/Team Insurance, Team Equipment, team practices at the WAC Indoor Hitting Facility and High School indoor Hitting Facility, WAC Field Rental & Maintenance, tournament fees (up to 11 for 10U and 12U; up to 5 for 8U). 50% of the remaining fee is due 9/1/20 with the remainder due 2/1/21. These amounts can be paid to offset through various fundraising efforts as organized by parent volunteers.
Fees for 2020-2021:
- 8U Player Fees – $605
- 10U Player Fees – $860
- 12U Player Fees – $860
- Elite (14U, 16U) Player Fees – $450 plus tournament fees/gate fees, uniforms, hitting facility memberships are player responsibility
Parent / Guardian Guidelines:
Playing on a WAC Tournament team is a commitment. It can be a rewarding and challenging experience, as players are exposed to a more competitive level of play. There is NO GUARANTEED PLAYING TIME FOR ANY GIRLS ON THE
TOURNAMENT TEAMS. All decisions in this regard will be at the sole discretion of the coach. We ask parents to be supportive of coaches’ decisions. Please remember that you have a choice as to whether you will expose your child to this competitive level of play. Not all children are ready for this level of commitment. Making a WAC Tournament team one year has no bearing on future year selections. Children at these ages develop rapidly and at different stages. Please explain these rules and guidelines to your child before you decide to have your child participate.
Each player’s family will be required to commit to two shifts at the Spring WAC Tournament held in Waukee and other designated sites. WAC teams that do NOT participate in the Warrior Classic are required to volunteer regardless. The date for 2019 Warrior Classic spring tournament is April 30-May 1st .
The Warrior Athletic Club (WAC) Competitive Softball Association’s mission is to develop a championship girls softball program for the Waukee Community School District that encourages participation, excellence, sportsmanship, pride, and fun. We will accomplish and sustain this through player, coach, and facility development as well as fundraising and marketing with the assistance and cooperation of the parents and community.
