Team Details

Description

Come tryout for the University of Guelph Women's Fastpitch team! Tryouts for the 2019/20 season are Friday August 30th 5-8pm, Sunday September 1st 10-1pm followed by two exhibition games on Monday September 2nd 9-5pm. These are at the main diamond, beside East Residence and the football field on East Ring Road. Please bring your equipment i.e. cleats, glove and batting gear to the tryouts. All tryout information is posted and updated through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram- contact information below)

We play in the OIWFA against 12 other universities in Ontario with support from CCSA and PWSA. All games are either scheduled Friday evenings or Saturday and Sunday during the day - no games are held during the week. We practice Tuesday and Wednesday evenings during the season. We are fortunate enough to have ON-CAMPUS diamonds to use for all of our practices and home games. Our season typically runs 6 weeks beginning labour day in September until mid-October; this includes Provincials for the top 8 teams in Ontario. If you place in the top 2-3 at provincials you attend Nationals the following school year where you play against the other top Universities and Colleges throughout Canada.

We host winter training in the field house from January-April where we invite future players to join our practices to get a feel for the team and to develop skills in the off-season.

We host fundraisers throughout the year and the coaching staff travel across Ontario throughout the summer watching future players play during the summer months.

What Participants Have Said...

When I first came to Guelph, I was unsure about playing on the Fastpitch team... but I'm so glad I decided to! Everyone is so supportive of each other!

I just wanted to thank the coaching staff for everything they do for this team! All of our coaches are volunteers and put in a lot of work outside of games and practice times to make sure our team functions as a unit and remains competitive. Our players always look forward to feeding their bellies in between games, especially when our manager spoils us with homemade soups and stews to keep us warm when the temperatures drop.
