Fastball program launches registration portal

The Orange Sox Fastball program — developed to form a U16 boys team for the 2020 BC Summer Games — has launched an online registration portal. Each player will be able to register and participate in all team practices, clinics, training or team functions at no.

The goal is not only to develop 15 players to travel to Maple Ridge in 2020, but to also rebuild the boys side of fastball on Vancouver Island and give players a place to play. The team also would like to see First Nation athletes attend the camps. “Our club has three First Nation coaches with national coaching experience,” a news release states.

The O’Sox program will continue past the 2020 appearance in Maple Ridge. There is a plan to attend the 2022 BC Summer Games in Prince George.
