Under 16 Boys Canadian Fast-Pitch Championship

Under 16 Boys Canadian Fast-Pitch Championship

The Under 16 Boys Canadian Fast-pitch Championships was held from August 5-9, 2015 at Prime Ministers Park.

The teams, fans, Softball Canada officials, Umpire in Chief and umpires from across Canada were very impressed with our fast pitch facilities and the access we had to Art Hauser Centre and Summer Games Building during the event.

Coaches and fans would stop our committee members to tell them how much they enjoyed this Canadian Championship and that it was certainly one of the best they had ever attended.

Our committee was hampered by poor weather as we received a lot of rain over that five day period.

If it were not for dedicated ground crew volunteers who were up at 5 am every morning pumping water of the diamonds, spreading quick dry and shale combined with city equipment and knowledgeable City staff supervised by Kathy Berden, this event would not of been played.

An event like this cannot occur without dedicated volunteers.

Players, fans and dignitaries were very impressed with the organization and effort of all volunteers to make sure all needs were met and in most cases exceeded. They expressed their thanks many times to our committee members.

This event was a huge success and all who attended this championship left our city with the hope of returning one day to play in our community again and playing the great game of fast-pitch on our beautiful facilities.
