We have received the 2019 OIWFA Draft Schedule this past week from league executive. The schedule is the typical 16-game format, in which teams from the East/West cross-over in week #1, followed by division play to close out the final three weeks of the season. As of this release the Warriors will open the schedule with a 4-game road trip opening weekend to face the Ryerson Rams, and Toronto Varsity Blues.
The following week, the Warriors will be at home, hosting the University of Windsor, and the Western Ontario Mustangs. In week 3, the women will take on Wilfrid Laurier and then close the weekend at home to Guelph. The season then wraps up in week #4, with the Warriors home to the Brock Badgers and MacMaster Mauraders.
The schedule is still subject to change, if there are revisions we will notate on our website
Due to the increased interest in Waterloo Fastball, the Warriors have decided to hold a Spring Player Evaluation before exams start this April. Our date and time is as follows:
- Sunday April 7th 3:30 to 5:00PM at CIF Gymnasium #3
All returning players, existing members of the Waterloo student community as well as fall 2019 prospective freshman are encouraged to attend this event. We are not choosing or selecting the team based on this event, however the coaching team will have a better understanding of the players and their skill level heading into training this fall. If you plan to attend, please reach out to us via email or contact us on social media!
Three of our team members attended the annual Warrior Athletic & Recreation Leadership Banquet the week of March 18th. The event was chance for all Warrior teams & clubs to share some of our achievements from the 2018/2019 season, and also to look forward to upcoming changes & announcements. We're proud of all our athletes for all they have done to increase the awareness of the U of W Fastball program over the last number of months. We look forward to seeing & hearing more!
