GWAC Softball Season Update

Softball Season

UPDATE: President Trump has extended the COVID-19 Social Distancing Policy through April 30, 2020. Based upon this federal mandate and to protect our players and their families, we have implemented a temporary suspension of the start of the softball season until no earlier than Friday, May 1. (Most probably season play might be able to resume closer to May 15)  At this time, no decision has been made regarding canceling the entire softball season, it is our hope that the season can start uninterrupted in May.  This delay at the start of the season may necessitate unusual scheduling challenges but the league continues to look at different scenarios for the softball season.  The league is going to try to have a virtual meeting with Reps/SB coordinators later in April.  Possibly Wednesday, April 29th.

Dear Coach...

You're making a huge impact in the lives of our children. Help them to become who they were created to be! from Play Like a Champion

Referee/Umpire Signups

Our officials play vital roles in our sports programs and their contributions significantly impact the quality of the experiences our athletes have. Sure, it’s a challenging job, but one that – when handled correctly – is enormously enriching and satisfying.

For our upcoming basketball and softball seasons, we are looking to add to our core of officials. If you are interested please contact the coordinators below.

Softball – Kevin Kahny -



Sports are not just about the final score…
It's about positive coaching, sportsmanship for children and their parents, learning to live together in a diverse community, maximizing talents, and fostering the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual strength in each of us.
The Girls Western Athletic Conference (GWAC) is committed to providing a fun, yet competitive, environment whereby the young ladies of our community may compete and develop general or advanced skills in specific sports while learning the basic values of teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship.
The GWAC serves 20 parishes in the Cincinnati Archdiocese and offers Girls Basketball, Girls Softball, Girls Volleyball.

"Catholic Youth Athletics furthers the mission of the Catholic Church by providing sports experiences for youth that are firmly rooted in the Catholic faith tradition, based on the goals of Catholic youth ministry, and aligned with the evangelizing mission of the Catholic Church."

Pre-Game Prayer

It is our hope that the continued action of praying together will foster fellowship, respect, sportsmanship, and dignity of players, coaches, parents, and officials. We wish you the best of luck in the upcoming season.

Please bless today’s game, our opponent, our team, and all watching our play. Thank you for the opportunity to compete and bring out the best in each other. May we play hard and fair. Please keep everyone safe from injury and harm. – Amen. (adapted from Play Like a Champion)
