NorthFrontenac MinorSoftball Association
Ball season is upon us again. Come out and join the fun. Everyone is welcome. Last year was a fairly successful year.
NF1 Grasshoppers won the A division under coach Marcie Webster. NF2 Grasshoppers won the B division under coach Tina Howes. NF Mites coached by Brett and Jen Harvey brought home the “B” trophy from Perth Road tournament. This was the first year they traveled away, and they had a great time. NF Peewees coached by John Morrow and Don Smith took 1st in the “B” division in Amherstview. NF Bantams coached by Willie St. Pierre and Mike Price took the A championship in Harrowsmith. NF Juniors coached by Paul Warren and Walter Barker placed 5th in Lansdowne.
Thank you to all the coaches for their time and effort in helping our children become the great ball players we have in our community. Thanks to all our volunteers for making NFMSA a success.
It is with deep regret that Lisa Ferguson has resigned from NFMSA after being a coach, director, and serving as an executive on the committee. Thanks to her for all of her dedication and time spent as a volunteer.
We hope that all our ball players and new players will be out again this year to play. This year a senior team has been introduced, age 24 and over.
