CAN Canadian Activity Network * meetup.com * Etobicoke, ON
WOW...wow...we concluded our Spring Softball season. This was the best game ever and the Tigers defeated the Yankees in a second extra inning game. It was marked by miraculous plays (Allie's triple play to preserve an 19-18 lead and the continual double plays made by Joanne, Adrian, Steve and Joel).
Moreover, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that participated and especially those that were brave enough to play for the 1st time (Jarka, Asha and Charmaine). Charmaine was also kind enough to surprise us with a cake after the game. Thank-you soooo much!
We now plan on having a summer and fall session. We can start with pick-up games ($10 each double header) or play for the entire summer ($40 for new ball players $30 for existing ball players).
If you don't have a glove...we have extras and all the bases, bats, balls, etc...will be provided!
Furthermore, we would like to start the creation of new teams so now is the time to get up and join.
The cost is $40 ($30 for existing ball players) for each season and that will include 12 Games + Playoffs. Drop-Ins are welcome ($10/night double header game). There are always vacant spots as not everyone can make every game.
If you would like to invite family, friends, colleagues, neighbours or business associates this would be a great, fun activity that is well organized but not competitive at ALL! Our vision and mission in all activities is to bring people together in a welcoming and fun atmosphere. ALL levels are welcomed and we will have training or clinics for those that want to brush up on their skills or learn something new!
If you have a preference of teams please advise. Current teams bellow:
Blue Jays - (Need 3-5 players) Coach Adrian, Joanne, and Steve
Red Sox - (Need 2-5 players) Coach Craig, Lucy and Joe
Yankees - (Full team unless otherwise noted) Coach Allie, Jarka and Laura
Tigers - (Need 4-6 players) Coach Joel, Heather and Leo If you have any questions or comments please advise and we are always looking to expand our area so if there is a need to start a league in Toronto, Scarborough, Oakville, Burlington then I have all the rules, scheduling and team lists organized on spreadsheets to make it work. Furthermore, for those that are participating in the organizing and executive team YOU WILL BE REWARDED!!! I know it's a lot of work, but many hands make light the load!
I will email the registration form and a skill sheet requesting your preference of play and level of experience (no skills required). This helps to manage teams and keep them balanced.
We will try and fill in a BBQ or party and everyone is always invited regardless of being a player or cheerleader!
If you have any questions please call, text, or email at your convenience.
