The Central Frontenac Minor Softball Association kicked off the 2017 season Saturday in Mountain Grove with its registration session.
Association president Kurtis Jackson said the on-field season will get underway in mid-May, depending on field conditions and the weather and continue into mid-August (the bantam and junior men’s teams schedule go a little longer).
They’ll be fielding six mixed teams and one girls bantam team this year with seven home games and six away games. Home games are played in Sharbot Lake, Parham and Mountain Grove. Away games can be as far away as Lansdowne and Gananoque.
“We’re affiliated with the Kingston Area Inter-Community Softball Association,” Jackson said. “All of the teams except Grasshoppers play away games.”
They have the players all lined up but they could still use some coaches and even more important — umpires. There is a training session scheduled for April 22 and if you’re interested, call Annette Grey-Jackson at 613-449-0060 for details.
The Association is also planning a volleyball tournament fundraiser for April 8 at GREC. Call Christine Teal at 613- 375-6525 for more on that and/or visit the Association’s Facebook page.
This year’s executive is Kurtis Jackson, president, Ryan Beattie, vice-president, Leanne Cowdy, secretary, Christine Teal, treasurer and Annette Grey-Jackson, equipment/umpires.
Area reps are Marcie Asselstine, Sharbot Lake, Owen Tryon, Parham and Jamie Riddell, Mountain Grove.
