PARENT VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED!!!

Again we are asking for any parents to volunteer and coach as this association would not be possible without the support of the parents. If you are interested please indicate so when you register your child. There is a Coaches Orientation for those who may feel unsure and we have directors to help with every coach so that you have all the support you need.

UMPIRING Last year we were able to have umpires at most of our games and we hope to continue that this year. These are paid positions and increase with experience. If interested please visit the UMPIRES tab and submit the form of interest.  

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE COULD POSSIBLY HAVE 5 TEAMS ATTEND PROVINCIALS THIS YEAR U11*, U13, U15, U17 & U19!
