This year OASA has adopted a new policy for defensive face masks for pitchers for 2018, all U10 (Atom/Mite) and U12 (Squirt) pitchers will be required to wear a defensive face mask. Wilmot Softball Association will also require all new U8 Tyke pitchers to wear a defensive mask. WSA will provide face masks in each of the equipment bags beginning this year up to squirt. We do recommend that all pitchers consider wearing a defensive mask for their safety.
For those of you that are 1st or second year Peewee pitchers, we strongly recommend you start wearing a defensive mask. Along with the additon of this requirement at the U8, 10 and 12 levels, beginnng in 2019, all U14 pitchers will be required to wear a defensive face mask and in 2020 all U16 pitchers will be required to wear a defensive face mask.
Defensive masks are optional for all other positions at this time.
If you wish to purchase your own defensive face mask these can be purchased at any local sports store. If there are any questions regarding this policy please don't hesitate to ask.
