How to Join a Team, League or Association

So you want to play softball but you don't know where to go to find a team. The first step is to decide  whether you want to play competitive or recreational. Competitive involves travel teams and tournament play including provincial championships while recreational is more of a local house league that plays once or twice a week.

House League/Recreational - League Play

If you are looking for the recreational setting the best way to become involved is to contact your local Parks and Recreation department for the teams and leagues in your area, or visit the Where to Play Softball page.
