COVID-19 Update:

Given the current situation and following recommendations made by government agencies at the local, provincial and federal levels, we are cancelling all Fisher Park Community Recreation Council spring programs, including soccer, softball and t-ball. The registration night scheduled for April 8 will not take place.

While we understand that this is disappointing news for families, and the community overall, the safety and well-being of all involved is our most important concern. Over the coming months, we will continue to follow the guidance provided by government agencies.

We encourage you to continue to visit our Facebook page and website for further updates.

We appreciate your understanding as our community navigates through this challenging time and look forward to resuming programming as soon as possible. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at: fisherparksports

Sending our best wishes to everyone in our community – stay safe and healthy!

 

********CANCELLED*********

Registration Starts March 26th from 6-8pm at the Fisher Park Community Centre inside Fisher Park Public School.

Payment must be made by cash or cheque

Office Hours are:

  • Monday-Friday 9am-9pm
  • Saturday 9am-4pm
Tball is for children in SK/Gr1  ages 5-7      Time slot 6-7 Thursday nights

With Tball the children are at the very beginning stage. The children play with a cushy ball. There are drills to help learn to throw and catch and mini games where the children hit the ball off a Tee. In these games all children hit and advance one base. The final batter hits a grand slam…ie everyone runs home. There are no “outs”. It is the very beginning of the game where they are learning skills.

Peanut softball is for children in Gr2/3/4 ages 7-10  Time slot is Thursdays 7-8pm.

At this level, an adult coach will pitch to all the children. They do play with a regular softball which is hard. These first three weeks will be used as a “skills development” stage where the children’s skills will be evaluated. At the conclusion of this period, the children will be divided into two groups and placed on teams. The beginners will then play from 6-7pm and the more advanced players will remain in the 7-8pm timeslot. These divisions will be made based on skill rather than age.

Softball is for children in Gr 5/6/7/8 ages 10/11/12/13/14.    Time slot is Thursdays 7-8pm

At this point, the kids start with an approximate half hour skills training and then a half hour game. Slowly the game time is increased as the season progresses. Here it is children pitching to other children and all the rules of the game are observed.

Games will be held on Thursday nights.
