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 2021 live in either Wauwatosa or Milwaukee or 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.
Please join us July 23-25, 2021, for the Summer Surge tournament. For U10, U12 and U14 teams. Spots for 8 teams each division. Five-game guarantee, weather permiting.

Our Shock teams had an outstanding 2020. It was our most successful ever with 14 championships. Way to go ladies! Can't wait to see how these teams keep developing and what we'll accomplish in 2021! #goshockgo
Here were a few of the accomplishments:
In 2019, our "graduating" U18 team 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.
Paul Muetze, one of our original three Tosa Shock head coaches, is hanging up his spikes after six tremendous seasons. Coach Paul actually coached seven teams in his leadership role with Shock, including an amazing 2016 summer in which he coached every game (league and tournament) for two U14 teams. As one parent said: "He has been generous with his time and his heart. Always decent, level-headed, accessible and willing to listen. The girls cared for him as much as he cared for them." We thank Paul for his long and devoted history with Shock. (PHOTO CREDITS TO TERRY MCADAMS)
