The SMSA Bantam Rep Tier II team will host trial tryouts on Nov. 1 and 8, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Stittsville Public School. The team will compete in the Provincial Women’s Softball Association (PWSA) Tier II division and will train to compete at a high level at the PWSA Qualifier (July 26-28, 2019) and the PWSA Grand Championships (Aug. 8-11, 2019) for a chance to compete at the U16 Girls’ Eastern Canadian Championships (Aug. 22-25, 2019).
These tryouts are not restricted to athletes who have previously played competitive softball, and we welcome all athletes from house league and Select teams who are interested in developing their skill set and playing in a more competitive atmosphere.
Three new coaches will be joining last year’s head coach Dale Aiken on the coaching staff. Erin Durant (former Ottawa GeeGees coach) will be leading the team as head coach and will be joined by assistant coaches Dale Aiken (currently with SMSA Bantam Rep), Carolyn Harman (former SMSA Midget Selects Head Coach) and Brad Pender.
The team welcomes all U16 female athletes (born in 2003-2004) to try out for the team. There is a $10 fee to attend tryouts and all athletes must complete the registration form prior to Oct. 30, 2018.
