Locally, we recommend checking out Sin Bin Sports. Bats are provided for each team. If you are considering buying a bat for your player, we recommend you ensure the size and weight are correct. Please talk with experienced sales staff or a coach if needed.
Thank you and we wish everyone a fantastic season!
Our U8 program is an affordable introduction to the sport of ball. It is open for both girls and boys born in 2011-2013. This is not your old school t-ball! It is a fun and interactive 45 min practice followed by a game with infield only, meaning players get more involved and the game moves more quickly.
Getting ready for the season? Please find a coupon provided by United Cycle. You can also find some equipment locally at SIn Bin Sports.

We would like to send out big congratulations to our 4 Scholarship recipients for 2018. Established several years ago, SPMSA is supporting our athletes to pursue post secondary education through a scholarship fund. The four athletes this year are very worthy recipients:. Shae-Lynn Hipkin, Megan Lambert, Emma Stephens and Kora Martin.
Shae-Lynn has played her entire minor ball career with SPMSA! She is now off to study her first year of Animal Health Technology at Lakeland College in Vermillion.
Megan Lambert has played many years with SPMSA, including the last several years on the U19A Storm. She is studying education at the University of Alberta. Megan has been a regular volunteer at our camps for recreational players and continues to volunteer for the organization.
Emma Stephens is attending the University of Calgary taking Engineering. Emma was also selected to play for the U of C Dino softball team this past season! She is looking very forward to hitting the shale with her U19A Storm teammates this upcoming spring.
Kora Martin is also a member of the U19A Storm. She is currently studying and playing both college softball and volleyball at Rainy River College in Minnesota. Kora has been a winter training coach for several of our younger Storm teams and a regular volunteer at camps.
Once again, congratulations to these young ladies and best of luck in your studies!
We would like to acknowledge the Woodbridge Farms Community Foundation for their generous donation to our association. They have supported our community for many years and have made many great things happen. The donation they have made will go towards supporting our new umpires and also our coaches through offsetting the costs of training and of equipment. We truly appreciate your kind gift.
