SEASON COMES TO A CLOSE
One of the not so cool things about fall softball in Ontario is that the season is so short. We start as soon as the fall semester starts but in a blink of an eye the entire OIWFA season passes us by. We wrapped up the 2019 season with two home series vs McMaster and Brock University. Our athletes battled hard over the weekend, and the playoff race came down to the final game of the season. In the end we fell short to a great Brock Badger team, and didn’t get the good news we needed on the out of town scoreboard. So that meant our season was over, and we just missed out on the final wild-card play off berth. Overall the season was amazing, we improved our win total by 100% vs 2018, and had we pulled out a few of our 5-one run loss games we would be right in the middle of the post-season tournament. Still… we now look forward to the off-season and the excellent training we can now get with our access to on campus facilities like our gymnasiums and the new CIF Indoor fields. We will be adding some 2019 season reviews to our site soon!
OUR NEW PRACTICE SPACE
Our athletes had the opportunity to check out the new Warrior Fieldhouse for our practice time slot this week. Pretty awesome to know that we have access to this great indoor facility all season long to help improve our skills. We are proud of this new facility and super excited to be able to make use of this awesome space! Over the winter we will be working out at the facility once per week, make sure to check in with our club leaders for the dates and times. Remember that our fall/winter/spring practices are open to anyone at the University. If you want to learn more about the sport, and give it a try... these times are for you!
JOIN OUR CLUB ON CAMPUS
We strongly believe that increasing the awareness and prestige of our fastpitch program on campus will translate into getting talented athletes interested in playing for our program. As a recognized University of Waterloo Club, we encourage students of all skill levels and backgrounds to join us for weekly practices in-season, and also in the off-season as well. Typically the team meets each week at CIF to practice skills. You can get in contact with members of the club executive, or stop by at the next open club day and find out more information about what our club is all about. We’re more than just the OIWFA team, we are committed to getting more people hyped about the game of softball/fastpitch.
