News and Announcements
As part of an ongoing relationship with Alberta’s sister Province in Japan, Softball Alberta is sending a team of Alberta athletes to Hokkaido, Japan this summer. They will then be hosting a team from Japan next summer.
Selections were held for Coaches and one of our very own, Peter Gogich (coach of the U14A Storm and SPMSA President) was selected as a Head Coach. A big congratulations to him!
Players from around the Province submitted an application, which included an essay and reference letters. An intense two day tryout followed on May 19 and 20th, which included an interview with the Softball Alberta selection committee. The process of applying alone was an amazing experience for the athletes.
We are so proud that we had seven athletes representing Sherwood Park Minor Softball at the tryouts! Three of our athletes were selected to represent Alberta this summer!! The athletes include Autumn Cole, Georgia Bowman and Kate Talaga. All three are long time Storm players and we are thrilled that they have this opportunity!
Congratulations to the U14A Storm for bringing home a gold medal from the Spring Sizzle in Kelowna, BC! The team went 4-2 for the weekend, ending with 3 straight wins to capture the gold medal in their division. The final was a nail biter, where the girls fought back from a 5-1 deficit. What a great way to kick off your season, we wish you continued success this season!
