Softball

This year we are pleased to offer softball registration for girls age 9 – 16!

With the exception of softball, all of our programs are coed. Girls up to age 8 play in coed BlastBall, Tee-Ball, and Mini Minors; girls 9 and up may choose between Softball and coed Baseball.

The following divisions are offered:

  • Minors (ages 9 – 10)
  • Majors (ages 11 – 12)
  • Junior (ages 13 – 14)
  • Senior (ages 15 – 16)

Majors, Junior, and Senior Softball tournament play offers Provincial, Canadian, and World Series opportunities.

Note: Softball is subject to having enough players and coaches to form teams. If teams cannot be formed, players will be offered other options such as joining the baseball division, combining with players from other Little League parks to form teams, or a full refund.
