2021 tryout notes

All players who plan to try out, and who intend to play, for Tosa Shock in 2021 must fill out a registration first. See the registration link below.

U18 team: We have a great foundation of players for 2021, but we will need to add a few more. If you've never played for Shock, we welcome you to attend our tryouts and check us out! We have a home for you in a positive environment. This team will be coached by Pat Hansen, the longtime varisty baseball coach at Menomonee Falls High School who is a member of the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association (WBCA) Hall of Fame.

U11 team: We have roster spots for players to fill our our younger U12-level team for 2021 (girls born in 2009).  This is a high-performing group that won two tournament championships in 2020, and they are looking to add talent. To find out more, please email us at

U8 team: We hope to field a new team in 2021 made of girls who were born in 2012 and 2013. First, though, we need a coach! If you are interested in coaching a U8 team for 2021, please email us at

About Wauwatosa Shock

Wauwatosa Shock is a competitive girls fastpitch softball organization founded in the fall of 2012. Our mission is to provide our girls with the opportunity to develop their softball skills and knowledge to prepare them to compete at a higher level. We do this by providing high quality coaching, in a positive atmosphere and through participating in competitive league and tournament play.

True to our name and our mission, 76% of our players for 2020 live in Wauwatosa or Milwaukee. And 80% of our players for 2020 go to a school in Wauwatosa or Milwaukee.

Our club is committed to the development of the whole athlete. Our foremost goals are for our girls to fall in love with the game of softball and to appreciate what it means to “honor the game.” We take great pride in providing a fun and supportive environment for our girls and in helping them to achieve the confidence they need to accomplish their personal best, both on and off the field.

We are a community-based organization and want our teams to be Wauwatosa based, but we do not have any residency restrictions. All are welcome to try out for our teams.

Shock Spirit: Our culture, our values, our purpose

Shock "graduates" give thanks with video

Our "graduating" U18 team has offered a wonderful gift to our club in the form of the above video that highlights the values of Tosa Shock. It's a love note to everyone who has helped these girls become great athletes and great young women, guided by the tremendous leadership of their head coach, Brian Brophey.
