Players invited to sign up for 2018 Vankleek Hill Softball League

The organizers of the Vankleek Hill Softball League are pleased to invite all interested players to another season of softball at Mill Street Park, next to the Vankleek Hill Arena.

This summer, based on popular demand, the league will return to a two-night, three-game format, with enough space for seven teams of 16 players on each. One game will be played on Tuesday evenings, and two games will be played on Thursday evenings.

The Vankleek Hill Softball League is a fun, non-competitive league, open to both men and women aged 19 and older. The cost of registration is $60, including an official softball jersey, as well as all equipment and field costs, and an umpire at each game.

For team registration: individuals may “pre-register” a group of 10 people (maximum), which will be joined together with other players to form a complete team of 16 players. This pre-registration will occur on a first-come, first-serve basis, by e-mailing [email protected].

For individual registration: single players may register and pay their fees on Saturday, May 5 at 2 p.m., at Beau’s All-Natural Brewery in Vankleek Hill. Please note that places are limited and will fill quickly.

Umpire needed: the Vankleek Hill Softball League is seeking an umpire for this season (no “official” experience required, but knowledge of softball rules is important). This person would also be available to set up and close down the field at each game. This is a paid position – for more details, please e-mail [email protected].

Play ball!
