CMSA has implemented new season dates per division for 2022:

  • AGE DIVISIONS for 2022:
    • Softball Canada has changed the age divisions as of the 2022 season – for more information visit here.
    • CMSA has added the U9 age division. This will be similar to U10 Junior with scheduled games in uniforms with a modified 6 player game using the 11′ indoor soft training ball. This division will be also be evaluated as there will be a senior and junior teams.
    • Due to the anticipation of umpires and a longer season, we will collect $50 per player in division 1 for U11, U13, U15, U17/19 and division 2 for U17/19, once teams are formed.
    • If other teams in division 2 in any categories receive umpires, AGSA may request fees from those teams as well.

After April 1st, a minimum of 50% of a players registration fee will have already been spent on expenses. Your AGSA board is taking all possible precautions to be able to refund the maximum of unused fees.

Participant-requested refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis up to April 1st, 2022. Refunds will be prorated based on the time spent within the program. A $25 administration fee will also be applied for all participant-requested refunds. No refunds after April 1st, 2022.
