Overview | Location

Welcome to Barrhaven Children's Softball 2010 season . We offer programs from players as young as three to those who have turned sixteen. You are now part of a long tradition in Barrhaven, This league has operated for almost 30 years relying on word of mouth endorsements and a firm commitment to our player’s success. As Barrhaven has expanded players are now joining from all the surrounding smaller communities (the Barrhaven suburbs?). Our size is limited by the availability of diamonds in the neighbourhood. Welcome to our quiet success story.

Our name says it all… we are a league dedicated to ensuring that your children have a great time learning skills, making friends and staying active. This can only happen in an environment where your children can learn and develop skills without the fear of criticism or over competitiveness. It is often difficult to balance the excitement of competition with the need to nurture players. The literature on child development indicates that a child's opinion on the value of team based sports and an active healthy life style are developed early in life. It is critical that as adults we start our children down the right path. All of you signed a waiver that reminded you that the league had a zero tolerance for inappropriate behaviour by players, coaches, fans or officials. The guiding principle of the league is "THE KID COMES FIRST". This will always be the first concern when decisions are made.

The league is non profit and totally run be volunteers. It strives to be the best value for the dollar. Despite rising costs we are pleased to announce that fees will remain the same as last year. Please feel free to call the league telephone: 823- PLAY (which is often filled quickly) or e-mail me at david.vesey@gmail.com

We encourage all coaches to show "local initiative" to maximize their team's experience. Each team works somewhat like a fast food franchise where the league dictates a menu and some basic standards and the individual teams are encouraged to develop their own personalities. Parents are critical in the development of this personality. Our league has a great reputation let's keep it that way. All parents are invited to share the experience by helping out as coaches or by offering to help in other behind the scenes jobs. Without such involved parents none of these players could play softball this year.

Our schedules, rules and other information will be distributed with the t- shirts and hats the first night. They are also found here under the divisional links. about our (click here). I will see you and your children on the diamonds soon.

David Vesey,
President Barrhaven Children's Softball
