Softball does not end after U18 or U19! RGSA has teams for women after high school, including rep teams and house teams. It's fun and keeps you active and in the game. Teams play in leagues and tournaments and usually enter provincials each year. Contact Tracy Sherlock for more information about finding a team to join. Teams generally play from May through July and are always looking for new players. Registration fees vary per team, depending on numbers of tournaments, etc. New teams are also welcome.
