Youth ages four and up can sign up for a fun season of softball

Black Creek is organizing local softball for all ages and all skill levels. “Let’s get some community softball started in Black Creek,” a spokesperson said.

Ball at the Hall starts this Friday, May 1 from 4-6 p.m. at the Black Creek Community Centre, 2001 Black Creek Rd. Everyone is  welcome.

Coach Cristi Sacht has combined the T-Ball and Youth Baseball age groups into two hours of community softball. Kids will be split into groups according to age, where they will learn fun drills and skill development.

The second hour will be spent playing a game where kids get to put their practice into action. The focus is on teamwork, skill development, sportsmanship and having fun. Parent involvement is encouraged.

Ball at the Hall season runs Fridays, May 1 to June 19, with a year-end wind-up celebration on June 26. Registration is now underway. Ages 4-6 $39 (member) $45 (non-member); ages seven and up $47 (member) $55 (non-member).
