West Norriton Girls Athletic Association (WNGAA)

West Norriton Little League now has a "sister" organization for all the young ladies of this township. Thanks to the efforts of Jon and Lauren of the Parks 'n Rec Department and some other influential people, the West Norriton Girls Athletic Association (WNGAA) was formed this winter and is now in full operation. We, here at WNLL wish them the very best and also know this group will grow leaps and bounds over the year.
