The WAA Girls Softball Organization is a non-profit full volunteer effort and as such it requires that parents sign up for activities to support running the organization. We appreciate all the support that you give in helping make this a great organization for our girls.
All WAA Softball parents are expected to volunteer 2 hours of their time to assist the organization. If you are unable to fulfill your assignment, you need to coordinate with parents on your team to backfill for you.
