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 will be continuing that this year. In hopes to get more umpires we have implemented that ANY PLAYER registered for the 2021 season and signs up for our umpire clinic will be reimbursed after 3 umped games. You will be paid $20/game and for parents that sign up you will be able to be assigned the same games as your child so that you can be with them. We also welcome any siblings, friends, relatives that want to earn some side cash. Dates and times for the clinic are still being determined and another email will be sent out when this is available.

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE WILL BE HAVING TRYOUTS FOR U11*, U13, U15, & U17 THIS YEAR! 

Our travel/provincial rep. team is a development program for those Fastball athletes who are interested in a more competitive game experience and skill development.  Travel teams will also have 3-4 weekends of game play as well as an opportunity to represent Zone 1 at provincials in early July.
