SOFTBALL 2020 – Softball Convenor - Tara
I find it very hard to believe that
it’s time to get in the gym to start preparing for the Softball season just
around the corner! The Southdale Softball Program continues to be
recognized as one of the top community-based softball programs in Winnipeg,
that I for one am very proud to be a part of. This is due to the dedication
of our volunteers, coaches and managers. One email requesting help brings
volunteers out with rakes, shovels, shop vacs and compressors! It is
because of this that we were able to successfully host the annual Southdale
Softball Tournament and the U14B & U19B City Playoffs. Thanks to you all!
What a great season we had last year.
What has become the annual Southdale Softball Tournament combined with the fair
was bigger and better than ever, hosting a record 55 teams playing at 13
diamonds and over 100 games in 3 days. The smiles on the girl’s faces
were confirmation that all our hard work paid off! Thanks to all the
volunteers – it would not have been the success it was without all of
you! A huge and special thank you to the Tournament Registrar Colleen
Prokop, as well as s huge thank you to Donna Ross and Jill Mowbray for your
tireless help on the weekend!
This past season more age groups
participated in city-wide playoffs. This turned out to be successful once
again, allowing for greater competition, and in the end, greater satisfaction
when medals were won. Southdale hosted the U14B City playoffs with 7 Teams and
the U19B City playoffs, hosting 3 teams.
Southdale Players looked sharp in
their new Bonivital East jerseys and I am always proud to see girls wearing our
Softball clothing throughout the year. Once again this season, once teams
are formed, players will pick up their jerseys and have the opportunity to
purchase Bonivital East clothing.
This past season teams celebrated much
success during playoffs, tournaments and provincials. Congratulations to all
teams well done!
Winter clinics will be starting in
January and will run through until tryouts. Please refer to the Southdale
Softball site for more information. There is no registration or fees
required, just bring out your gloves, lace up your indoor shoes, join your
friends and drop-in. Winter skills clinics are a great way to dust off
the gloves and to warm up those ball muscles in preparation for tryouts.
Consider attending the sessions for your age group.
Evaluations will be conducted for most
ages to determine placement at the B level. Evaluation sessions will take place
in late March and early April. To be considered you must attend
evaluations. Watch the Southdale Softball site for tryout times.
Please join me in looking forward to
another great season!
