At RHMSA, our #1 priority is the safety of your children. We are working to understand public health recommendations and you should know that we all have children that play in RHMSA, and we will only play softball this summer if it is safe to do so.

At this time, we’re still planning for our 2020 season. We want you to know the following:

1. Registration is still open. Please log on to the RHMSA website and register. You can defer payment until we know for certain whether there will be a season. It would really help us plan for the potential of a season if you would register now rather than waiting.

2. If you have already registered/paid and the season is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.

3. If you have already registered/paid and the season is shortened, we will refund the pro-rated unused portion of those fees.

We commit to keeping you informed as we make decisions, and to being here for any questions you may have. We know that softball may be furthest from your mind right now, but RHMSA is optimistic that we’ll be able to celebrate the end of this global pandemic at the ball diamond.

The coaches would like to thank all of the players who attended one or both of the tryouts for the U16 Select Team. Offers are being made and the team will be finalized in the near future.

Softball Ontario has cancelled all umpire clinics for 2020. If you were a junior or intermediate umpire in 2019, you may become eligible to umpire in 2020 by completing the online requirements found on the Softball Ontario website. Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.

The start of the season is just around the corner and we are inviting all interested players to the U16 Girls Select tryouts! These tryouts are for girls born in either 2004, 2005 or 2006.

Trying out on one of the nights above is mandatory although we recommend attending both nights. Please be punctual, as tryouts will begin precisely at 7:30pm. We request that you confirm attendance for this tryout to dir.select@rhmsa.ca and sarkissian@rogers.com as we are preparing a schedule. Please reply with which dates your daughter will be attending. We look forward to seeing you there!
FYI The U12 and U14 Select Team tryout dates are TBD.

RHMSA has been very fortunate to have many amazing coaches this year, however, one coach certainly stood out this season by coaching two teams in 2019. This long time RHMSA volunteer coached both the U14 and U16 Select teams where the U16 team ultimately placed 4th out of 28 teams in the OSSTA Provincial Championships. RHMSA would like to congratulate and thank Tonia Sarkissian for dedicating her time to create another awesome and successful season of Softball. Your positive attitude and dedication over the years is certainly an asset to the league and the youth of Richmond Hill! RHMSA would like to also sincerely thank the many amazing individuals who stepped up to coach this season. It is because of your commitment and coaching skills that the kiddos of our community have a place to play ball. LETS GO REBELS!
