News and Announcements
Despite our best efforts to remain hopeful and look at all of the possible ways in which we could safely return to play this season, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RHMSA House League softball season.
This decision has been made primarily with the health and well-being of your children and families in mind, in light of government restrictions and insurance considerations, and also in consultation with our neighbouring house leagues.
We are hopeful that over the coming months we will see the end of the pandemic and a return to the activities that bring our communities together. We will keep in touch with you and keep you apprised as we plan for a return to the field in 2021.
Please stay safe and healthy.
Board of Directors, Richmond Hill Minor Softball Association.
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.
Friday, February 28, 2020 from 8:00pm to 10:15pm at Adrienne Clarkson Public School (gymnasium),
Friday, March 6, 2020 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at Our Lady of Annunciation Catholic Elementary School (gymnasium),
In case of permit cancellation: Friday, March 13, 2020 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at Our Lady of Annunciation Catholic Elementary School (gymnasium),
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 email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
