High Park Softball has a long history of providing a quality program at a reasonable cost to developing athletes.
The support of community members has helped the program to grow from a single team at its inception to 19 teams of various age groups in the 2017-18 season. Last season marked something new for our organization. Instead of simply forming a community team, a performance stream was created at the U14 level. Girls who were interested were invited to try out, were formally evaluated on their level of skill and a rep team was created. The community stood by our group of fourteen girls that came from all over to represent High Park in the highest level of play for softball in Alberta.
The girls competed in the Edmonton Youth Softball Association in the city and also travelled throughout the prairies as competitors in the Girls Prairie League. The level of play was highly competitive, but our girls definitely made us proud. Some of their noteworthy achievements included 1 player being selected to the GPLS all star team (as voted for by opposing coaches), 2 players selected to play at the Alberta summer games, our coach serving as a head coach at the Alberta summer games and 2 players from our team receiving nominations as EYSA player of the year. The team also competed at provincial championships and western Canadian championships. Our team has already been named and is currently practicing indoors for the upcoming season.
The girls will mark another first as they travel to Arizona to represent High Park in their first international tournament in December! By taking part in The Great Prairie Bottle Harvest, the girls successfully raised $2076.25, almost $200 for each team member. What a huge success! They are thankful for all of the assistance from Alberta Depot and everyone who donated.
