Brian Wamsley founded the Westerville Ice softball organization in 2001. When the Ice started out in 2001, there was a group of girls that played in the Westerville Youth Baseball and Softball League. When the season was over, those girls wanted to keep playing, and they wanted to do it full time. So we started out with one team at the 12U level. They had such a great time that the program quickly began to grow. It took the program only four seasons for five Ice teams to qualify to play at the National level. In 2005, all of the squads played in the Adidas/Louisville Slugger National Softball Association (NSA) Girls Fastpitch "Class B" World Series in Chattanooga, TN. Starting in 2007, the organization changed its' name to the Central Ohio Ice, to reflect the fact that many of the players of the Ice come from a variety of communities all around the state of Ohio, as well as Westerville. In 2010, the Ice will field six teams spanning the 10U through 18U age brackets
The Central Ohio Ice organization was established for female athletes to develop skills to participate in amateur sports competition, namely softball. Ultimately, the goal of the organization is to assist our players develop their skills and be seen by college coaches and scouts, enabling them to use softball as vehicle to obtain a college education
