2012 Softball Parent Handout

Fisher Park C. R. C. Spring Softball 2012

Softball Details

Volunteer coaches will contact players 1 week prior to the beginning of the season.

We are hoping to recruit 2-3 coaches per team.

All parent helpers are welcome regardless of their experience.

The Season starts May 3rd and runs until June 28th.

T-ball for 5-6 year olds runs from 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Softball for 7-9 year olds runs from 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The 1st week of softball each player will receive a team t-shirt, water bottle, and a game schedule for the season.

At the end of the season, each player will receive a softball medal and a team photo.

Players are required to bring their own glove and water to the game. Running shoes are satisfactory. Baseball cleats are also acceptable.

In case of inclement weather, coaches should confirm game status with the website (www.fisherparkrecreation.ca) or recreation office (613-798-8945) and notify players whenever possible.

*Reminder   Children must be supervised at all times.

Your Coach is not a babysitter.  Parents (or a designated person) are responsible for supervising their child / children during the softball Program.
